Mexico came out on top of Group B after beating both Haiti and Honduras. After already clinching the group, they did lose the last game of Group Stage to 2022 FIFA World Cup Host and Gold Cup Invitee, Qatar.

After moving on, Mexico beat Costa Rica 2-0 in the quarterfinals and handed Jamaica 3-0 in the semifinals in order to reach their third consecutive CONCACAF Gold Cup Final.

Mexico vs Panama Prediction & Best Bets

We’re in for a thriller tonight with these two teams.

They been playing some great soccer throughout this tournament, and they’ve been the two strongest teams without a doubt.

Panama has been exciting to watch and completely dominated the United States in the semifinals. Mexico has always had their hearts set on the Gold Cup Title, and tonight they will play for yet another CONCACAF Gold Cup Championship.

Will they be able to clinch another title? Or will Panama lift the trophy for the first time?

The Pick: Mexico/Panama Under 2 (+111) Bovada

Gold Cup Final Mexico Panama Prediction Best Bet

Although these teams have rarely had trouble scoring this tournament, I think we see a defensive match tonight. Yes, Mexico score in 90 seconds in their semifinal, but Panama was able to contain the United States through regular time until the 105th minute.

I think we see something similar in this game and see this one play to a 0-0 draw through 90 minutes.

For plus money, I’ll definitely bet on this championship to be a “boring” game for soccer casuals with, hopefully, zero goals.

Bonus Bet: Panama +0.5 (+130)

Like I said, I think we see this play to a nil-nil draw after 90 minutes. If perhaps Panama squeaks one in and steals this game, we will still profit.
