Stadium: BMO Field
Canada’s World Cup qualifier against Panama has taken on extra significance following the latest set of results over the weekend.
The Canal Men moved up to third in the CONCACAF table after they upset USA 1-0 and the Canucks slipped to fourth due to only drawing 0-0 in Jamaica.
This now has all the makings of a tight tussle and 8/5 for under 1.5 goals to be scored is our first Canada vs Panama prediction.
A Look At Canada’s Betting Odds
Canada remain unbeaten after five rounds of fixtures but will have been frustrated to post a fourth draw against basement dwellers Jamaica.
Alphonso Davies had the best chance of a cagey first half but his fiercely-struck shot went just past the post.
The Bayern Munich star later set up Liam Millar with a great opportunity but his effort was saved by Andre Blake.
To be fair, Jamaica did also go close to snatching victory in Kingston when Junior Flemmings headed against the woodwork.
Canada have also shared the spoils with Honduras, USA and Mexico, with their sole success being a 3-0 triumph over El Salvador at this venue last month.
John Herdman’s side often start cautiously before opening up after the interval, so we’re hoping they can wear down their opponents on this occasion.
Looking at the Canada vs Panama odds, we like 3/1 for Draw HT/Canada FT.
A Look At Panama’s Betting Odds
Panama made it to the last World Cup in Russia and boosted their hopes of qualifying for Qatar 2022 when Anibal Godoy grabbed the winner versus USA.
The Nashville midfielder headed a 54th-minute corner towards goal and it deflected in off Gyasi Zardes.
It was a deserved lead for the Canal Men, who had forced visiting keeper Matt Turner to make several saves in the opening period.
America pushed for an equaliser but Panama held firm to beat them for the first time in a World Cup contest.
Thomas Christiansen’s side had drawn both previous home games against Costa Rica and Mexico but have had mixed results on the road.
They prevailed 3-0 against Jamaica in Kingston but were edged out 1-0 away to El Salvador last week.
We reckon 17/4 for the Canal Men to go down by the same scoreline in Toronto is worth adding to our Canada vs Panama betting tips.
Jamaica 0-0 CANADA

Head-to-head: Panama 0-0 Canada, Panama 0-0 Canada, Panama 0-0 Canada, Panama 2-0 Canada, Canada 1-0 Panama
