Concacaf World Cup qualifying picks for Panama vs. Canada
Before you tune in to Wednesday's World Cup qualifiers, you need to see the Concacaf World Cup qualifier picks from soccer insider Roger Gonzalez. Gonzalez is an award-winning writer that has covered pro soccer from Europe to South America. Gonzalez started out his pro soccer writing career while in college at Virginia Tech, writing for Goal.com. He's also covered the Copa America, Champions League, Copa Libertadores, and much more. Since 2015, he's been the lead soccer writer for CBS Sports.
For Canada vs. Panama, Gonzalez predicts that over 2.5 goals will be scored for a +140 return. Having played three of its five fixtures on the road and against top competition like the United States and Mexico, Canada has only scored six times so far during its five World Cup qualifiers.
However, three of those goals came against El Salvador at home. Plus, the Canadians scored nine goals at home against Bermuda and Suriname in the first round of World Cup qualifying. Look for Canada to use the energy of the home side to its advantage and push forward with dynamic young talents like Jonathan David, Alphonso Davies and Cyle Larin.
David (Lille), Davies (Bayern Munich) and Larin (Besiktas) are all playing for extremely successful clubs in Europe and have had big impacts for those clubs. Gonzalez likes them to show up in the biggest match of the final round so far and he's particularly eyeing David to come through, predicting a brace for the 21-year-old forward.
"Canada has had issues finding consistent goals in attack and scored multiple times in just one of its last six games," Gonzalez told SportsLine. "They cannot afford to slip up here against Panama, and I'm expecting an electric performance similar to the 3-0 win over El Salvador. I'm taking the over with Jonathan David scoring twice."
