CONCACAF Nations League 2023 Finals Betting Preview and Stats
Canada National Soccer Team
Canada will be hoping to improve on their performance after a not-so-good 2022 Football World Cup tournament, as they couldn’t score a single point from three matches. They are slight favorites to win the trophy, and they also have the easiest matchup in the semifinals.
This is the most talented squad in the history of this Canadian team. Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David are the two best players, and they have been shining for Canada lately.
US National Soccer Team
The United States are the second favorites to win the title according to the CONCACAF Nations League odds. The USA are the current champions, and they will be playing at home in this tournament as well. They are the highest-ranked team among the remaining four teams, as they are ranked 13th.
The USA can easily win back-to-back titles if they bring their best performance in this edition, but they will have to surpass a difficult opponent in Mexico first.
Mexico National Soccer Team
The Mexican team barely qualified for this stage of the tournament with a 2-2 draw with Jamaica. Mexico surprisingly didn’t look threatening in the last World Cup, but they will be hoping to have a better performance here.
A new manager and players like Edson Alvarez and Hirving Lozano can lead Mexico to upset the American team, but they are the underdogs in that semi-final away matchup.
Panama National Soccer Team
Panama will be the clear underdogs in this tournament, but they can be a dangerous team and should not be underestimated. They had a great CONCACAF Nations League qualification, as they haven’t conceded a single goal in four games played. They also have extra motivation to shine on the international stage after missing the latest FIFA World Cup 2022.
Ismael Diaz and Michael Murillo are the two best players for Panama, and they will try to surpass the favorites to win this title in Canada in their semi-final match.
CONCACAF Nations League Finals 2023 Format & Overview

There were no surprises in Panama’s roster, as all the players who contributed in their qualifications to this stage, like Ismael Diaz, Edgar Barcenas, and Anibal Godoy, are all available to play.
Cyle Larin, the Canadian’s all-time leading scorer, got a call to the roster after a great season with Real Valladolid. Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David will also be available, as Canada won’t have any big absences for this tournament.
Prediction: Jonathan David to Score @ 2.20 (6/5)
Jonathan David is the main striker for this Canadian team, and he is one of the most important players for them. He has three goals from four matches in this CONCACAF Nations League edition. Jonathan is having an outstanding season with Lille as well, as he scored 24 goals in Ligue 1. David is in great form, scoring three goals in his last three matches.
USA vs Mexico Prediction and Betting Preview
Path to the Semi-Finals
The United States was in Group D, which consisted of El Salvador and Grenada. The American team qualified with ease after winning three matches and drawing once. The USA scored 14 goals in the group stage, which is the most by any team in the tournament.
Mexico was in Group A, which consisted of Jamaica and Suriname. The Mexican team qualified in the last game of the group stage after holding a 2-2 draw with Jamaica. They scored eight goals and conceded three in the four games played.
- USA: DWWDL
- Mexico: DWDDW
Folarin Balogun, the Stade Reims’ forward, will make his debut for the USA in this tournament after choosing to represent them over England. The American team will also get Alex Zendejas back from injury, and he should be ready.
Many veteran players for Mexico won’t participate in this tournament, as Raul Jimenez, Nestor Araujo, and Jose Rodriguez are all out for Mexico.
Prediction: Both Teams to Score @ 1.95 (Evs)
Both teams have been having a lot of open games lately. Mexico had both teams score in four of their last six matches, while the United States had scored and conceded in three of their last five games as well. The Mexican team scored at least one goal in six consecutive games, while the USMNT failed to score only twice in their last nine matches.
High Odds Prediction for CONCACAF Nations League 2023 Finals
USA to Win Halftime/Fulltime vs Mexico @ 4.0 (3/1)
The US team has had a big advantage over Mexico in the last few years. The United States beat the Mexican team in three of their last five games, with the other two matches ending in a draw. The last time Mexico beat the USA was in 2019. The USMNT will be playing at home in this game, and they have the better roster out of those two teams that will want to close the questions in the first 45 minutes.
