Copa America - Jamaica preview
Argentina – Uruguay – Paraguay – Jamaica
Group B looks a straight up win job for Argentina. Uruguay are missing a few players and the main man in Suarez. Paraguay are at their lowest for some years and Jamaica are well Jamaica.
Ok let’s break down the teams with some outright betting, Group Winners and anything else that presents itself!
JAMAICA (Would be Ranked 8th in Comnebol)
2014-15 Form: 6 wins, 3 draws, 5losses. – Win % 43%
2014-15 Top Scorers: D.Mattocks 4, D.Brown 2
Jamaica are unbeaten in 6 matches with 4 wins and 2 draws but apart from 1 win over Venezuela the level of opposition is poor. Jamaica are here with a side that includes Jamaican league players, players from the lower leagues of England and a few players from across the globe. However they are a very settled and balanced side and do have good team harmony.
I cannot see them doing anything against Argentina but they are capable of getting results against the other sides Uruguay and Paraguay. It will certainly be interesting as the three sides could be locked together. So its important not to get hammered by Argentina.
Its not inconceivable that Jamaica beat Paraguay. I think they will lose to Argentina so they need to nick something from Uruguay. If not they have a chance of nicking a 3rd best spot. They would leave them battling with the 3rds from groups A & C. If as expected they do get through they would face Chile in all likelihood and that would be the end of them. 13-2 or 7.50 is available with Betfair on Jamaica to qualify. With the only other price available 5.50 or 9-2 with Boylesports. I think the 13-2 on Jamaica to qualify is a great price and well worth a bet.
