USA vs Mexico: What Bettors Need to Know

The Stars and Stripes team-record 12-game winning streak came to a screeching halt against Costa Rica last week and they'll look to start up another one against familiar foe Mexico Tuesday in World Cup Qualifying.

USA v Mexico (+138, +210, +210)

Site:
Crew Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

Why bet the USA: You can't win 'em all. Costa Rica may have won 3-1 but it was in their backyard and they do have an above average squad. The problem with that game is that the USA lost some good players and will have to dip into the talent pool to field a squad versus Mexico. Midfielder Michael Bradley has been ruled out with a sprained left ankle and Jozy Altidore, Geoff Cameron and Matt Besler are suspended after collecting yellow cards against Los Ticos. The US does have some players to choose from and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has called on Clarence Goodson, Joe Corona, Jose Torres and Brad Davis. The Mexican side is in a bit of shambles as well. They sacked head coach Jose Manuel de la Torre after an humiliating 2-1 defeat to Honduras. Mexico is currently fourth in the table with just one victory, five draws and one defeat in their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Why bet Mexico: On paper, Mexico is a talented side. They boast Manchester United poacher Chicharito, Villareal forward Gio dos Santos and Valenica midfielder Andrés Guardado. This is a strong side, but clearly something during this qualifying run was/is amiss. Potentially, that has been rectified with the firing of de la Torre. El Tricolor are a unit that, when meshed well, can play with just about anyone. They have goals in them and even though they haven't been in the best of form, are still dangerous.

Previous World Cup qualifier result: Mexico 0, USA 0 (in Mexico)

Key betting note: The USA has won the previous three competitive matches versus Mexico in Columbus by a scoreline of 2-0 each time. All of which were World Cup qualifiers.

* If the USA beats Mexico and Honduras collects a victory against Panama, the USA punches its ticket to Brazil 2014.

USA, Mexico Clash
By Sportsbook.ag

World Cup qualifying action continues Tuesday and all eyes will be on the United States-Mexico matchup from Columbus, Ohio. The United States and Mexico are both coming off losses on Friday to Costa Rica and Honduras respectively.

After Mexico’s home loss to Honduras at Estadio Azteca, the team fired Jose Manuel De la Torre as manager. He will be replaced by Luis Fernando Tena. Within the CONCACAF qualifying group, Mexico sits in fourth place with eight points out of six teams. Only the top three teams in the group will qualify for the 2014 World Cup from Brazil. The fourth place team will go into a playoff round against New Zealand, who captured the Oceania qualifying group.

Costa Rica sits on top of the CONCACAF qualifying group with 14 points while the United States sits in second with 13 points. Honduras is currently in third with 10 points.

Since Honduras plays two of its final three games at home and the finale at Jamaica, tonight’s road game against the United States is considered a must-win by many pundits for Mexico.

Due to injuries and suspensions, the United States will be short-handed tonight against Mexico. Expected to miss due to one-match suspensions are Jozy Altidore, Matt Besler and Geoff Cameron. Also, midfielder and arguably the best player on the United States, Michael Bradley, will miss due to an ankle sprain.
