Mexico vs Jamaica Betting Tips: MEXICO TO WIN

Leading up to this summer's Copa America bash, El Tricolor took on a trio of warm-up matches but failed to build the desired momentum, beginning with a tight 1-0 victory over Bolivia before suffering back-to-back defeats to heavyweights Uruguay with a 0-4 scoreline and Brazil in a 2-3 thriller.

Since their debut in 1993, where they achieved their greatest-ever feat at this tournament finishing as runners-up, the Mexicans have consistently received invitations, but they missed out on the last two Copa America editions held in Brazil, heightening their desire to make amends this summer with a strong performance.

As Jaime Lozano's team prepares to make their return to the tournament for the first time since 2016, where they reached the quarterfinals but suffered a seven-goal mauling at the hands of Chile, they will aim to replicate their stellar group stage performance from that time, which comprised two wins and a draw, with one of those wins coming against Jamaica whom they defeated 2-0.

On the opposite end, the Jamaican national team earned the right to take part in the 2024 Copa America through an exceptional CONCACAF Nations League campaign, reaching the final four after a 4-4 aggregate score saw them prevail over Canada in the quarterfinals thanks to the away goals rule.

Heimir Hallgrimsson's men have gained a fine boost of confidence ahead of this summer's major tournament, currently riding a three-game winning streak, having edged Panama 1-0 at the end of March to claim a bronze spot in the Nations League, before wrapping up their preparations with back-to-back narrow 1-0 victories over the Dominican Republic and Dominica.

Otherwise, the Reggae Boyz will make only their third appearance on the Copa America final stage and will try to present themselves in a much better light than they did in their previous two editions, where their record shows no wins or points earned, having lost all their group-stage matches in both the 2015 and 2016 campaigns.

Jamaica's quest for their first victory in this competition may continue to elude them, as recent encounters with Mexico have left much to be desired, with three out of the last five H2Hs ending in defeat, the latest being last year in the CONCACAF Gold Cup where the Sombreros inflicted a heavy three-goal loss. In any case, the Reggae Boyz should not be underestimated, as they have the potential to upset anyone, but the Mexicans are expected to have what it takes to kick off their Copa America campaign perfectly.

Mexico team news

Mexican icon Guillermo Ochoa will miss this year's Copa America due to a tendon injury, paving the way for Santos Laguna shot-stopper Carlos Acevedo to step into the goalkeeping role.

Barcelona defender Julian Araujo failed to recover from a muscle injury in time to be ruled out of the Mexican national team for this summer's tournament, but coach Jaime Lozano will surely be encouraged to have Santiago Gimenez in attack.

Jamaica team news

Despite being included in the 26-player roster for this year's Copa America, Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey is likely to miss the tournament for undisclosed reasons.

First-choice national team goalkeeper Andre Blake is doubtful for the opening match against Mexico due to a long-standing knee injury, while Luton defender Amari'i Bell will miss at least the start of the Copa America as he is still not fully fit following a back injury.
