2022 World Cup qualifying picks for Jamaica vs. Canada
Before you tune in to Sunday’s CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers, you need to see the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Canada vs. Jamaica, Eimer is betting the Canada double, meaning it leads at halftime and at full time. Despite the United States and Mexico fielding strong squads with high aspirations for the World Cup 2022, Canada has been the dominant force in CONCACAF during this qualifying cycle and should be able to overpower a Jamaica squad with nothing to play for.
Canada leads CONCACAF in goals scored (19) and has conceded the fewest goals (six) during third-round qualifying action. Jamaica has only managed to collect eight points in 12 matches. Jonathan David and Cyle Larin give the Canadians a potent attack, and their pace and quality going forward should allow them to jump on The Reggae Boyz.
In its last four matches at home, Canada has outscored opponents 11-2, which included wins over the USMNT, Mexico and Panama, which are all still in contention to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Jamaica most recently played El Salvador to a draw, which officially eliminated El Salvador from any chance of making it to the World Cup. Despite finding itself down 1-0 at only the 21-minute mark, Jamaica continued to fight to stay in the game. El Salvador was able to hold on to its lead until the 72nd minute when Andre Gray was able to find the back of the net to officially eliminate El Salvador.
With an almost sure spot in the World Cup for Canada, Jamaica will likely be motivated by the ability to make Canada wait at least one more game to get to Qatar.
