Best Bets: What to watch, where to go

MONDAY, JUNE 13

  • TELEVISION

CONCACAF GOLD CUP

Honduras vs. Jamaica

Galavision, 6 p.m.

Group B comes down to these two, both contenders -- and both coming off dominant performances, the Reggae Boyz two of them. Both sides have speed and style, and this might be the most attractive first-stage matchup in the tournament.

Also

Guatemala vs. Grenada, Galavision, 4 p.m.

TUESDAY, JUNE 14

  • TELEVISION

UEFA U-21 CHAMPIONSHIP

Belarus at Denmark

ESPN Deportes, 11:35 a.m.

The host Danes are in danger of elimination after just two games. Belarus got two late goals to upset Iceland in its opener of Europe's “youth” championship.

Also

Switzerland vs. Iceland, ESPN Deportes, 8:50 a.m.

CONCACAF GOLD CUP

Guadeloupe at United States

Fox Soccer Channel and TeleFutura (KFTR/Channel 46), 6 p.m.

What did the Americans' loss to Panama really mean? A far tougher quarterfinal matchup, against Jamaica or Honduras rather than El Salvador or Guatemala, followed by a semifinal rematch. (The system is designed to prevent a U.S.-Mexico showdown until the final.) Of course, if the U.S. can't beat Guadeloupe ...

Also

Canada vs. Panama, Galavision, 4 p.m.

  • ON LOCAL FIELDS

U.S. OPEN CUP

Hollywood United FC at L.A. Blues

Riverside Community College, 5 p.m.

Westside rivals who have worked together in the past head deep into the Inland Empire for the first round proper of America's oldest competition, dating to 1914. Win here and next week and a dream date with the Galaxy awaits.

Doxa Italia at Ventura County Fusion, Ventura College, 7:05 p.m.
