In-Depth Canada vs Haiti Gold Cup Prediction 2021
Canada and Haiti will face off in their second matches of the Gold Cup on Thursday, July 15 at 7:30 pm EST in Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, KS. Canada won their first matchup against a weak Martinique team 4-1 while Haiti suffered a 1-0 defeat to the USMNT. This is Canada’s opportunity to just about secure a top-two group stage spot before their matchup against USMNT while Haiti really needs to avoid starting off their Gold Cup with two straight losses.
There is some recent history guiding these betting picks. Canada and Haiti faced just about a month ago in the FIFA World Cup Qualifying Concacaf Second Round. Haiti hosted the first matchup on June 12 in Port-au-Prince and despite battling Canada pretty evenly for most of the game both in shots and in possession, lost 1-0.
The second game in Canada was a different story. Canada won 3-0, showing absolute dominance, outshooting Haiti 18 to 4 and holding 58% of the possession. Quite frankly, they should have won by more.
The Moneyline Might Not be Worth Ignoring
This game’s moneyline surprised me. If you came here looking for Canada vs Haiti Gold Cup prediction, this info might be worth gold! I thought it would be far worse. At -250, betting straight on Canada is a fairly simple bet and not a scary one. Should by no means be 100% of your bankroll, but this is a game Canada will be ready and excited for.
Historically, Canada has won 4 out of 4 games they have placed against Haiti, and this is the best team Canada has ever fielded. Alphonso Davies is the kind of player that greatly impacts games full of the best players in the world. There is no doubt he will impact a game against Haiti.
Canada also dominated their last game against Haiti. I mean, absolutely dominated. This game is an easy win for Canada unless players drop out. Or maybe more possibly, if Haiti gets an early goal and puts everyone behind the ball. That same story just played out against Martinique and Canada won 4-1. I would bet on this game if it had -500 odds. -250 is just a gift.
Those #CANMNT boys are just getting started… 🇨🇦💪

Half Time/Final Bet is Free
Canada definitely seems to get better as the game progresses. This happened against Haiti the last time they faced off and it happened against Martinique until they secured enough of a lead that the game was more or less finished.
Haiti will never take the lead in this game unless it is 1-0, but Canada won’t let that stay for long. Haiti gave up an early goal to the US in the first half and never really looked threatening the whole game. Canada will win with a lead they gather in the first half and never give up.
Canada vs Haiti Game Prediction
I think Canada will play better against Haiti than the USMNT did. For starters, the USMNT roster is a B-team of sorts. Secondly, Canada creates seriously threatening attacks and plays with a solid defense led by one of the best left-backs in the world. Canada wins this game by at least two, but I see three if I have to predict an exact number. Haiti scores a maximum one at that.
Final Score: Canada 3 Haiti 0
