USA have a chance to gain revenge over Panama for their shock Group C defeat and advance to the Gold Cup final tomorrow.
The Stars and Stripes suffered a 2-1 reverse against Los Canaleros but can settle the score for their football betting fans with a win at the Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Despite that loss, which saw Bob Bradley’s side qualify from Group C as runners-up, the host nation are seen as clear favourites to reach the final, where they are likely to meet Mexico.
bwin prices USA as 7/20 favourites, while the draw offers odds of 13/4 and another shock victory for Panama is available at 13/2.
Panama have proven already that they are a force to be reckoned with and a look at their recent form suggests USA will not have things all their own way.
After seeing off El Salvador 5-3 on penalties in the quarter-final, the Central Americans extended their unbeaten run to five.
Indeed, the visitors have won four of their last five, putting USA, Cuba and Guadaloupe to the sword in the process.
By way of contrast, USA have lost two and won three of their last five, being outfought by Panama and Spain, but overcoming the challenge of Canada and Guadaloupe before sending Jamaica crashing out in the quarter-finals.
However, a look at recent meetings between the two sides shows why the USA are expected to reach the final and be in with a chance of securing a fifth Gold Cup crown.
Before the 2-1 win for Panama in the group stages, USA won four on the bounce, scoring at least two goals on each occasion.
And with little in the way of returns available on a USA win, a number of football betting enthusiasts could be tempted to back a scoreline from one of these previous meetings.
Opting for a 2-1 USA win, which has been the result in two of those ties, offers odds of 31/2, while a 3-1 victory is priced at 50/1.
Backing the Stars and Stripes to run out 2-0 winners is available at 19/4 and Panama fans can back a repeat of their 2-1 win at 50/1.
However, with a large chunk of the USA squad based in Europe’s top leagues, including quarter-final two-goal hero Clint Dempsey, a USA win looks likely to attract more of the smart money.
