Jamaica vs. Mexico odds, how to watch, live stream: Concacaf Nations League predictions for June 14, 2022
Just over two years ago, the inaugural Concacaf Nations League ended in disappointment for Mexico following a hard-fought battle with the United States. El Tri continues its quest for redemption in its second group stage match against Jamaica on Tuesday. Mexico opened this year's competition with a 3-0 win against Suriname, whom Jamaica took a win and a draw against in its first two matches to start its Nations League campaign. Jamaica's Junior Flemmings scored a goal in his first two matches, and you can see if he's able to extend his streak when you stream all the action on Paramount+.
Kickoff from National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica, is set for 8 p.m. ET. The latest Mexico vs. Jamaica odds from Caesars Sportsbook list Mexico as the -120 favorite (risk $120 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line, while Jamaica is the +330 underdog. A draw is priced at +220, and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5. Tuesday's match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Concacaf Nations League picks for Mexico vs. Jamaica
Before you tune in to Tuesday's match, you need to see the Concacaf Nations League picks from soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. He has gone 98-77 in his last 175 soccer picks, returning more than $2,300 for $100 bettors.
For Jamaica vs. Mexico, Sutton is backing Mexico to win as a half-goal favorite for a -120 payout. In the 30-match history between the two sides, Mexico has won 23 with three draws. In the last meeting between the two, Henry Martin scored the first of two Mexico goals in a January 2022 World Cup Qualification match. Martin scored in Mexico's last match as well on a penalty kick in the 40th minute against Suriname. Jamaica made the change to Paul Hall as its interim manager in December and the Reggae Boyz have taken two wins and a draw from their last three matches. However, two of those outcomes have come against Suriname, which is ranked 141 in the FIFA World Rankings.
"Mexico has been in a bit of a slump, but El Tri seemed to take some frustrations out on Suriname in their last outing," Sutton told SportsLine. "While Mexico has been shutout in three of its last five games, Gerardo Martino's side will be confident they can find the back of the net on Tuesday. That's because Jamaica has conceded at least one goal in each of its last 11 games across all competitions."
Mexico continues its World Cup preparations with a CONCACAF Nations League road match at Jamaica as it closes out its June slate of action.
El Tri has been choppy at best in through its summer schedule thus far, firing blanks against Uruguay and Ecuador in friendlies before a 3-0 win over Suriname in its Nations League opener. Veteran players like Raul Jimenez and Hector Herrera have performed below expectations, throwing fresh doubt into how Mexico will line up moving forward.
Head coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino has been under fire for the team's spotty performances in the lead-up to the 2022 World Cup, and a CONCACAF road test will be a good way to see if the team is progressing or if issues run deeper than initially believed.
For Jamaica, a team that did not qualify for the World Cup, the Nations League is a chance to continue building towards the next cycle. The first Nations League game, a road match at Suriname, put a dent in those hopes after a disappointing 1-1 draw, although the Reggae Boyz got back to winning ways at home in a 3-1 victory over the same team.

Jamaica vs. Mexico lineups
While Jamaica disappointingly drew with Suriname in its first CONCACAF Nations League match on the road, the reverse fixture at home produced a much better result. The turnaround was largely thanks to the return of Derby County midfielder Ravel Morrison who picked up a goal and assist in the home win.
The pair of Shamar Nicholson and Jamal Lowe were also brought into the fold for the second game, and the two combined for the third Jamaica goal. It remains to be seen whether head coach Paul Hall wishes to stick with that attacking pair or bring Leon Bailey back in.
Mexico's sputtering attack got back on the scoresheet in last week's Nations League opener against Suriname, but the victory was far from convincing.
Young Diego Lainez was among the bright spots, and it will be interesting to see if the usual super sub gets a second straight start. Conversely, Rodolfo Pizarro struggled and is likely to see the bench again with Orbelin Pineda and Uriel Antuna candidates to start.
Mexico projected starting lineup (4-3-3, left to right): Cota (GK) — Gallardo, Angulo, Cata Dominguez, Alvarez — Chavez, Romo, Nene Beltran — Pineda, Santi Gimenez, Antuna.
Jamaica vs. Mexico betting odds
Mexico is the clear favorite despite the recent struggles and the match being on enemy territory, but the odds swing still leaves some meat on the bone for Jamaica. A level result is also given a reasonable chance.
The game is expected to be cagey given Mexico's attacking difficulties and the venue location, with the total under heavily favored. Both teams are also not expected to score, although the "yes" result also has negative odds as the betting market isn't quite sure where to lean on that specific prop.acfsrdht
