Concacaf Nations League picks for Panama vs. Costa Rica
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Concacaf Nations League picks from soccer expert Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since last year’s World Cup, Green has been profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including the Champions League (+4.78 units), the FA Cup (+3.07), the EFL Cup (+3.64), Euro 2024 qualifiers (+3.01) and the Europa League (+1.60).
For Costa Rica vs. Panama, Green is picking Panama to draw no bet for a +110 payout. Los Canaleros have had the upper hand in this matchup as of late, defeating Costa Rica both home and away in last year’s Nations League tournament and again in June during the Concacaf Gold Cup. A draw on the road would suit Panama well since the quarterfinal has only two legs, the expert notes.
Green also likes Panama’s chances because of their wealth of experience, whereas most of Costa Rica’s players are rookies. “Most of them play in Costa Rica’s domestic league, whereas the Panama squad is full of players that ply their trade in the MLS or in Europe, and Los Canaleros’ greater experience could prove decisive in this match,” Green told SportsLine.
