Croatia is 7-6-2 overall in World Cup play following a 4-0 win over Cameroon. Croatia has scored 20 goals in its 15 matches while allowing 14. Mexico is now 13-24-14 overall in 51 World Cup matches after going to a scoreless draw with Brazil. Mexico has scored 53 goals in its 51 matches, but allowed 89.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: Mexico has been all about its defense this World Cup. It has just one goal in two matches, but still has four points. Croatia relies on its offense to win, but won’t be playing a defense like Cameroon in this match. Mexico goalie Guillermo Ochoa has been one of the best goalies in all of the World Cup and that play should continue today. Croatia will struggle to find the net today and Mexico will continue to struggle on offense as well. Look for this match to be low scoring and end 1-0 or in a 1-1 tie.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: MEXICO/CROATIA UNDER 2.5 GOALS
