Mexico vs Brasil Betting Tips, Lines & Our Prediction
This will most likely be the main game for both of these teams, since the winner of this game will likely be the one securing a top spot in group A. We’ve already seen a single game of each team before writing this prediction, where both teams where struggling vs weaker, at least on paper, opposition.
Brazil, who apparently are the World Cup favorites, beat Croatia 3:1, but that score does not really tell you what happened in the game. Croatia opened the score after Marcelo took a great shot at his own goal, boom – 1:0. It didn’t take long for Brazil to fight back though and Neymar scored a beautiful goal to equalize the match.
An unfortunate and false penalty was then given, after Brazil didn’t have much luck beating Croatia’s defense, which was taken and scored by Neymar.
Mexico also struggled a little vs Cameroon, but this ending result doesn’t really tell the whole story of that game either. Team Mexico had 2 goals discounted due to offside, which was falsely disallowed.
Betting Lines & Our Predictions
Mexico looked real good in their game while the same couldn’t be said about Brazil. Even though I’m sure some of the brazilians had home sickness problems, since it was the first time they played as hosts of the World Cup.
According to bookmakers, Brazil are massive favorites and I just feel that odds on them aren’t offering any value whatsoever. Mexico, on the other hand can be backed at 11.00, which would allow you to win $1,100 on a $100 wager – now that’s some value right there! Lets take a look at the best odds offered by bookmakers for this particular game.
Brazil to Win – 1.35 at Unibet
Draw – 6.00 at Bet365
Mexico to Win – 11.00 at Bet365
We expect a high scoring game, since none of the two teams are particularly strong with defense, but are certainly good at scoring goals. That’s why there are a couple of Under/Over bets we can play with.
Over 2.5 goals – 1.61 at TitanBet
Neymar to score – 1.90 at Bet365
Why This Game Is Important
For those of you who aren’t really following the World Cup and wouldn’t consider this as an important game, I would suggest taking a close look at group B. There’s Spain, Chile, Netherlands and Australia. Losing team of this game is very likely to face winner of that group – very likely Netherlands, since they beat Spain 5:1 in the opening match.
Brazil would obviously prefer to play versus Chile in their Top 16 round, but it’s very likely that they will be facing Spain.
Where To Bet During World Cup
If you are still clueless about what betting sites are good enough for your adventures during the world cup, this is where to look. Normally we only suggest a couple of bookmakers, as there aren’t so many out there to begin with.
If you’re from the US, the best option is Bovada , but for non-US bettors, betting sites that I have listed below will do just fine.
