    CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers Picks: Previewing Canada's January Matches

    CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers Picks: Previewing Canada's January Matches

    In case you haven't been paying attention, Canada Men's National Team is killing it in the 2021-22 CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers. The squad is currently in first place with 16 points and a 4-4-0 record. They are the only unbeaten team and lead with a +8 goal differential. But a quick look at the soccer betting odds shows Canada is still largely behind USA and Mexico.

    Here is a look at the updated CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers standings. The top three automatically qualify for Qatar in 2022 while the fourth-placed team heads to the inter-confederation play-ins:

    CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers - January Schedule

    Canada has a chance to pull away from the group with two wins in January, but it won't be easy as they host the second-placed Americans later in the year. Note how the weather could affect the match as it will be a late January game in Hamilton where temperates will likely be in the negative with a chance for snowfall.

    Canada at Honduras

    • When: Jan. 27, 8:05 PM ET
    • Where: TBC
    • Odds: TBA 

    Canada rematches Honduras after drawing them 1-1 in their opening match this Final Round. Honduras is on life support and will need to win all of its matches if it hopes to finish in the top three. This is the only team to have no wins and has lost four straight matches. 

    Canada has not defeated Honduras since the 2015 qualifiers. They are 0-2-1 in their last three against them. But this is the best Canada has looked and the worst Honduras has been, so expect Canada to be a moderate favourite here. SBR's Pick - Canada.

    USA at Canada

    • When: Jan. 30, 8:05 PM ET
    • Where: Tim Hortons Field, Hamilton, ON, Canada
    • Odds: TBA 

    Canada gets another shot to finish the job against the USA after their 1-1 drawback in September. The Canucks were outplayed by the Americans for most of the match but got a late goal from Cyle Larin to even things up, then held on to split the points with the United States. 

    The odds should be close here but slightly favouring Canada who is 1-1-1 in its last three meetings against the USA. Canada had its best performance in the infamous "Iceteca" in Edmonton against Mexico. Do we see another "Canadian Heritage Moment" here? SBR's Pick - Draw.

    CONCACAF Qualifiers That Matter To Canada

    As Canada plays, keep an eye on other matches that will impact Canada's standings in the qualifiers. You can also bet these matches from the best online sports betting sites in Canada:

    El Salvador at the USA

    • When: Jan. 27, 8:05 PM ET (Pending)
    • Where: Field, Columbus, OH, United States
    • Odds: TBA 

    Before tangling with Canada, the Americans have to get past El Salvador at home. The USA will want the full three points here as opposed to a point when it played the El Salvadorians to a nil-nil draw in their first match. Expect the U.S. to be a significant favourite. SBR's Pick - USA.

    Costa Rica at Mexico

    • When: Jan. 30, 8:05 PM ET
    • Where: TBC
    • Odds: TBA 

    Costa Rica will be in desperation mode here as they fight for that fourth spot in the standings. Mexico edged them 1-0 in their first meeting and El Tri should still be easily favoured here. But a draw or a win from Costa Rica could be what prevents Mexico from catching up to Canada. SBR's Pick - Draw.

    Canada's Path To Qualification: Road Trips

    Three of Canada's final four matches will be played on the road. Canada has yet to win a match on the road in this round but the team did play the U.S. and Mexico to a draw in their own stadiums. Still, Canada can ill-afford to go winless in this final stretch.

    Canada's remaining games (February to March):

    • Canada at El Salvador
    • Canada at Costa Rica
    • Jamaica at Canada
    • Canada at Panama
