World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

Mexico have been running in dominant form in the CONCACAF World Cup 2018 qualification zone. They have dropped just the two points along the way and they opened their account with a good win over the United States. If they can double up over their rivals then they would be in such a strong position to get to Russia next summer. It would also leave the Americans still in a big scrap to land an automatic qualification.

Mexico vs USA Betting Tips

If Mexico can take the bull by the horns in this game, they will really strengthen their supremacy at the top of CONCACAF qualification for the World Cup 2018. They are already five points clear of second placed Costa Rica and six clear of the USA. So if they can stretch that out even further they would pretty much be assured of a place at Russia 2018 from there. So a big incentive for Mexico to go out and do the qualification double over their rivals. A late goal in Ohio saw Mexico take a 2-1 win over the USA in the opening round of qualification matches. Mexico have gone W4 D1 in their five matches in the group so far and have some good momentum.

Remarkably though, the eight goals that they have scored in qualification have all been netted by a different player. That’s team input for you. They have only shipped the one goal in the group, which was in their opener against the USA, so they have a clean sheet in each of their last four qualifiers. Mexico to win to nil at bet365 is running at a price of 13/10. Mexico have won their last two games against the USA, both by a one goal margin. Mexico to win by a one goal margin at bet365 is 12/5 and may offer plenty of value for punters to get behind because with the USA still looking a bit disjointed and looking for some cohesion and stability, the Mexicans are bang in form right now.

The USA beat Trinidad 2-0 at home in midweek to pay their way into the top three in the qualification group. So that was a good positive for them as they are receiving after losing their opening two qualification matches. They have plenty of work still to do in qualification and pressure will be back on if they lose this one. The USA are actually top scorers in the group now with ten goals, but they have shipped seven goals in their five qualifiers which is a big concern. Both teams to score at bet365 is a price of even money and Clint Dempsey is the top scorer in the qualification group and he goes at 7/1 in the first goalscorer market. Christian Pulisic netted both goals in their 2-0 win over Trinidad. The USA were on a six match unbeaten streak of form against Mexico (W3 D3) before losing their last two against them, they are going to have to dig deep in this one.

This is a big test for the USA and not one they will want to lose but their defence just can’t be trusted enough at the moment to go to Mexico City and get something out of this. Mexico are on fire at the moment and they can edge their rivals by a one goal margin.
