Group C at the Copa America Centenario has two highly competitive teams. However, a couple injuries could change everything. Let's take a look at the group's three biggest games.


Mexico (+155) vs Uruguay (+195) – Sunday, June 5, 8 PM ET

Uruguay and Mexico are -110 and +120, respectively, to win the group, and this game in Glendale could be for top spot right off the bat. Uruguay will be without striker Luis Suarez for the group stage because of a hamstring injury. However, Uruguay should remain competitive with striker Edinson Cavani spearheading the attack, and Diego Godin defending the back.

Mexico has plenty of scoring options from midfielder Andres Guardado to Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, and they're experienced at the back. However, the big question comes in goal where the starter will either be Guillermo Ochoa or Alfredo Talavera.

The draw is +210 in this match. Mexico has seven wins and seven draws in 19 meetings with Uruguay, who have won the last two, most recently at the 2011 Copa America.


Mexico vs Venezuela – Monday, June 13, 8 PM ET

Venezuela is +1100 to win the group, and they'll need midfielder Romulo Otero to come up big. The 23-year-old is playing at home in Venezuela, but bigger clubs might come calling if he plays well in this group stage. This is a game that Mexico will likely win and hopefully by this time, they'll have their goaltending situation sorted out. Mexico has never lost to Venezuela; in 10 meetings, Mexico has won eight and tied two. Still, La Vinotinto could be a tricky task for Mexico in Houston.


Uruguay vs Jamaica – Monday, June 13, 10 PM ET

Jamaica is the +2000 long shot to win Group C. They have to figure out who the goals are going to come from, which makes the decision to leave striker Darren Mattocks at home surprising. However, they're coming off a massive 2-1 win on the road in Chile and even though it was a friendly, it improves their confidence.

Uruguay will pour players forward if they drop points in the opener against Mexico. The top two teams in Group D will probably be Argentina or Chile, and Uruguay will do their best to avoid Argentina if possible.

These two teams have met four times going into this game in Santa Clara, with Uruguay winning three and losing one. Uruguay beat Jamaica 1-0 at the 2015 Copa America.
