Haiti meet Canada in the first CONCACAF Gold Cup quarter-final on Saturday evening at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
The Haitians came through the group stage with a 100% record, beating Bermuda (2-1), Nicaragua (2-0) and, somewhat more surprisingly, Costa Rica (2-1) to top Group B, the first time that Haiti have ever topped a group at the CONCACAF Cup.
Canada progressed from Group A courtesy of a couple of easy wins over Martinique (4-0) and Cuba (7-0), either side of an equally predictable 3-1 loss against the ever powerful Mexicans.
Haiti vs Canada Prediction & Betting Lines & Picks
In the Match Result betting odds (90 minutes), Haiti are +403 (5.03) with Sports Interaction, the line on the draw is set at +260 (3.60) with bet365 and Canada are the favourites at -143 (1.70) with bet365.
Any CONCACAF betting predictions here have to take into account that Canada has had two relatively straightforward games and one against Mexico where the result was never likely to be crucial to qualification. By contrast, Haiti has had three competitive and fairly tight games already.
Canada should win this game anyway given some of the talents on their roster, but they should also be the fresher team going into this. A win for Canada and a place in the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup has to be the tip in this game.
In the Correct Score market, a 2-1 win for Canada is available at odds of +750 (8.50) at bet365. In the Anytime Goalscorer betting market, Jonathan David already has five goals in the tournament and can be backed at +138 (2.38) with Betway Sports to add to his tally.
