Jamaica vs USA Prediction
USA are favorites in the game, owing to the superior players available to Gregg Berhalter. The visitors missed out on qualification for the last FIFA World Cup and are well-positioned to avoid a repeat.
The recent upsurge in switches of nationality to Jamaica has given the Reggae Boys increased pedigree on the international stage and the home side have what it takes to upset the USMNT.
However, we are backing USA to move a step closer to qualification by securing a comfortable victory.
