Why you should back Mexico

Mexico have a +11 goal differential over the last two years of contests. Forward Uriel Antuna provides his team with a capable playmaker and offensive threat. In Liga MX Clausura for Cruz Azul, he finished with nine goals and two assists last season. Forward Alexis Vega can be an additional effective offensive threat.

Vega has impressive speed and foot quickness. In the 2023-24 season with Deportivo Toluca FC, the 26-year-old logged six goals and four assists. Forward Julian Quinones adds to the mix offensively. In Liga MX Clausura with CF America, Quinones totaled eight goals and two assists in 21 games last season. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Jamaica

Forward Shamar Nicholson is one of the most athletic playmakers on the attack for Jamaica. Nicholson is a powerful and strong force at 6-foot-4 and 181 pounds, so he uses size to overpower some defenders. He played in 28 matches for Clermont Foot 63 (Ligue 1), finishing with four goals and three assists. In addition, he led the national team in total goals (5) in seven games of the Concacaf Nations League.

Forward Bobby Reid is another impactful scorer on the frontline. Reid uses his speed to his advantage with a forceful strike from different angles. In 38 games for Fulham (Premier League) during the 2023-24 season, Reid totaled six goals and two total assists. In seven games during the Concacaf Nations League, he was tied for second on the team in goals (3) in seven games played. See which team to pick here.
