Mexico are perhaps not known as one of the world’s most proficient, and experienced football teams… but when compared to their opponents, Trinidad and Tobago, the match looks to be a near-whitewash.
Indeed, Trinidad and Tobago have failed to win any of their last six games – and have actually endured a whopping six losses back to back… and this doesn’t mode well for the Caribbean nation.
While Mexico’s form isn’t too much stronger, they have won three of their last six encounters, and with two draws, and just one loss, they certainly look to be favourites in Saturday’s match.
Actually, the bookies have priced Mexico quite fairly, we think, despite them being the overwhelming favourites to win, and you can find pretty generous odds of Mexico to win to Nil, at 4/6.
Another bet we like the look of, is Mexico to win 2-0, which currently boasts odds of around 9/2.
Now, back to both side’s performances, recently:
The last time the two teams met was back in March… and to say the teams have history, would be a bit of an understatement!
In fact, some of the most recent results include a 4-4 draw, a 3-3 draw, and a 1-1 draw… and those numbers really speak for themselves! Saturday’s game is likely to be packed-full of goals. (Or goals galore, as some would say!
It’s highly unlikely that Trinidad will be able to pull of much of a performance on Saturday, and with Mexico looking likely to bring their A-team on, from the offset, things look even worse. Worse still, perhaps, when you consider that Trinidad and Tobago’s best player, and captain, Kenwyne Jones is currently out injured… and as the team’s highest-goal-scorer, this is set to be a damaging blow to the side.
If you’re looking for a ‘safe’ bet of the weekend, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better betting option that Mexico – and whether you look at betting on straight-to-win, or fancy a correct score prediction, instead, you should be able to find some pretty decent value, dependant on which bookie you decide to punt with.
