Mexico Looks To Maintain Lead at Top of Group C With Victory

Mexico and Jamaica will be locking horns in Copa America play on Thursday, June 9th.

Mexico opened up their tournament with a 3-1 win over Uruguay earlier in the week, while Jamaica dropped a 1-0 contest to Venezuela. Mexico will look to cement their status as the top team in the group with a win on Thursday, while Jamaica will try to keep their hopes for advancing out of the group alive.

As you can probably imagine, Mexico is the clear favourite to win on Thursday - here are the current betting odds:

Mexico, 1.28
Draw, 4.80
Jamaica, 13.00

Mexico, led by the likes of Javier Hernandez, Oribe Peralta and Raul Jimenez, are seen as being just too talented and too well-balanced to lose to the side from Jamaica. Jamaica, for their part, will be heavily relying on the boots of Clayton Donaldson and Giles Barnes to emerge triumphant on Thursday.


According to the bookmakers, the five likeliest outcomes of Thursday's game are:

Mexico Wins 1-0, 5.50
Mexico Wins 2-0, 5.50
Mexico Wins 3-0, 7.50
Mexico Wins 2-1, 9.50
Draw 0-0, 10.00


As of this moment, here are the current odds to win Group C:

Mexico, 1.14
Uruguay, 8.00
Venezuela, 8.00
Jamaica, 67.00

And, the odds to qualify for the next round:

Mexico, 1.03
Uruguay, 1.40
Venezuela, 2.37
Jamaica, 17.00
