Andrew Hughes thinks Jamaica can beat El Salvador on Sunday and help to land another weekend multiple in the process
“El Salvador have won only one of their nine meetings with Jamaica, and have lost their last four in a row, scoring just two goals…”
There's plenty of betting action to keep football punters busy this summer, including the CONCACAF Gold Cup. You can keep up to date with all the latest football tips and previews on the dedicated football pages of the Betting.Betfair site.
Jamaica and El Salvador go into Sunday's CONCACAF Gold Cup clash with a good chance of reaching the quarter-finals, though only the winner is sure to progress. Both sides played well against Group leaders Mexico, but Jamaica's ultra-defensive tactics earned them a valuable point, while El Salvador ended with nothing to show for an enterprising attacking performance, conceding three goals.
That defensive frailty could cost them in this game against opponents they've historically struggled to beat. In fact, El Salvador have won only one of their nine meetings with Jamaica, and have lost their last four in a row, scoring just two goals. Back Jamaica to grind out a win and seal their place in the knock-out stages.
Although St Helens have missed out on a top four spot in Super League, they have been improving steadily in recent games, and as coach Justin Holbrook admitted recently, they have been in Super 8 mode for a couple of weeks now.
Catalans Dragons will be boosted by the inclusion of on-loan Romain Navarette and Lewis Tierney from Wigan and the return of some key players from injury, but they will need to improve significantly on their recent form to trouble Saints. The Dragons have won only two of their last eleven, while the Totally Wicked Stadium has been a fortress in recent weeks. Back St Helens to win their seventh home game in a row.
Game one of this series went according to form on Friday as Milwaukee Brewers secured a 9-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies and they look a solid bet to record another victory and seal the series in game two.
Phillies went into the All-Star break with the worst record in MLB and nothing we saw on Friday suggested any imminent improvement. By contrast, Milwaukee have a healthy 51-41 record and sit at the top of the National League Central Division. Starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson has a healthy 8-4 record this season and he can lead the Brewers to another victory at Miller Park.
