A wasted opportunity? Panama was supposed to be the only team capable of challenging the United States in their CONCACAF Gold Cup group, but the Panamanians did much more than simply challenge the US. The American squad was fortunate to escape Nashville with a 1-1 draw after being out-shot and out-played for much of the match. The reason that performance was so disappointing for Bruce Arena’s side is because the Americans are unlikely to be challenged in their remaining group matches against Martinique and Nicaragua. At the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the United States is a two-goal favorite against Martinique on Wednesday from Tampa.

The featured game of Round Two is Mexico-Jamaica on Thursday in Denver. This will be a rematch of the 2015 Gold Cup finale, which El Tri won 3-1. Mexico defeated El Salvador in its opening match, while Jamaica beat Curacao 2-0. Mexico is a -1.5 favorite on the two-way line. And keep an eye on that Costa Rica-Canada match on Tuesday night in Houston. The Canadians opened some eyes with a four-goal outburst in their first game. Can they keep the momentum going against a very talented Costa Rican side?
