    CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers: March Picks

    All Canada needs is two wins to clinch the top spot, which isn't only just bragging rights as it will give them a better chance of landing a favourable draw at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Alternatively, if Mexico and the United States draw and Canada wins one match, it will only need one point to clinch first. 

    Mexico vs United States

    • When: Mar. 24, 9:05 PM ET
    • Where: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City
    • Odds: TBD

    The United States beat Mexico 2-0 in their first match of these qualifiers, which was Mexico's first loss. The game got chippy with six yellow cards and one red being handed out. The game was close at first but the USA shut Mexico down and squeezed two second-half goals to come away with the win.  

    Mexico has not looked that great in this tournament. Fair play, the squad is missing several key players but the days of Mexico dominating the CONCACAF even with their B-squad appear over. This match will once again be lined close on the sports betting odds. The Mexicans have home turf so they can at least avoid another loss. SBR's Pick: Draw (TBD).

    Costa Rica vs Canada

    • When: Mar. 24, 9:05 PM ET
    • Where: Estadio Nacional, San Jose, Costa Rica
    • Odds: TBD

    Canada gets a tough matchup against Costa Rica in their own stadium so expect Canada to be a slight favourite. The Canucks edged Costa Rica 1-0 in the Commonwealth Stadium back in November. But Canada did dominate possession, controlling the ball 68% of the time and outshooting Costa Rica 14 to 7.  

    The Costa Ricans are tough customers when playing at home. They are 3-1-1 at the Estadio Nacional with that sole loss being a 1-0 game against Mexico. Canada has been on fire, but Costa Rica is desperate and will play more aggressively than they did in Edmonton. SBR's Pick: Draw (TBD).

    Canada vs Jamaica

    • When: Mar. 27, 3:05 PM ET
    • Where: BMO Field, Toronto, Canada
    • Odds: TBD

    The last time Canada played Jamaica, it was one of the worst football matches ever. Canada played perhaps their worst game but still managed to come away with a point thanks to a nil-nil draw. But with this rematch moving to Canada, bank on the Canadians to get this one done.

    Canada should be a sizable betting favourite here. The Canucks are 5-1-0 at home with that draw being their first match in this round. Jamaica has been so disorganized has just one win in this round, which came against the only team worse than them: Honduras. SBR's Pick: Canada (TBD).

    Panama vs Canada

    • When: Mar. 30, 8:05 PM ET
    • Where: Estadio Rommel Fernandez, Panama City, Panama
    • Odds: TBD

    Kudos to Panama as this club has overachieved in this tournament. The Panamanians are hanging on to the fourth and final spot thanks to drawing Mexico and upsetting the United States. But losses to Mexico, Costa Rica, and Canada show that this team is a tier below the best.

    Canada scored a whopping four goals against them in their first match. While Canada is unlikely to score this many again (especially without Alphonso Davis), it should beat Panama as its potent offence will be too much for Panama's flimsy defence. Canada will be a decided favourite on the best sports betting sites in Canada hereSBR's Pick: Canada (TBD).

    Costa Rica vs the United States

    • When: Mar. 30, 8:05 PM ET
    • Where: Estadio Nacional, San Jose, Costa Rica
    • Odds: TBD 

    This one may be a must-watch as it could decide if the United States can retake first and/or if Costa Rica clinches a playoff spot. Either way, both clubs will have a lot to play for. Costa Rica will want to get the United States back after a 2-1 loss back in October.   

    Costa Rica's lone goal came a minute into the matchup then it was all USA after that. The United States has not lost to Costa Rica since the 2017 World Cup Qualifiers. Expect this trend to continue here with the USA being the rightful favourites. SBR's Pick: United States (TBD).
