Team USA went a perfect 3-for-3 in group play, topping Haiti 1-0, then spanking Martinique 6-1 before easing by Canada 1-0 in the decisive match last Sunday.
Jamaica opened with a solid 2-0 victory over Suriname but was a tad bit shaky in a narrow 2-1 win over Guadeloupe. It ended up on the short end of a 1-0 loss to Costa Rica to finish second in the group.

USA 2, Jamaica 0
Money line (ML)
USA (-225) is the play even though it's a little more expensive than I generally care to play on a money line wager. However, the Reggae Boyz are up against it playing in Arlington against a pro-USA crowd which will give the Americans all the energy they need, and then some.
This will be a decisive effort for the home side, and I also like USA TO WIN TO NIL (+120).
UNDER 2.5 (-115) is a good play, as I expect Team USA to post the clean sheet. Jamaica didn't impress me one bit during group play. In fact, I feel as though it has gotten sloppier as the tournament has gone on.
If there is a concern here, it is a late third goal in regular or stoppage time with Jamaica pinching up out of desperation.
