Mexico started in probably the most unexpected way their World Cup campaign with three draws in their first three matches. The Mexicans drew against their hosts today Jamaica at home, they also made a draw with the team of Honduras as a guest and at home again, but against the U.S team. This start has not been in the plans of Mexico’s coaching staff and the victory today over their host Jamaica is simply a must in order to keep their chances alive. Currently Mexico lies in the second to bottom place in their qualification group.
Of course, the hosts of today’s match will not give up without a fight and will do everything possible to win. A possible win will detach them from the last place in the current standings and will put the Mexicans at the bottom.
However, the bookmakers put the visitors from Mexico in the role of a favourite for the match. Bet365 offer odds of 1.85 for their win, while the offer for a home win is 4.33. Anyone who chooses a draw as the final outcome in this match will get odds of 3.4.
My preferences will also be with the guest today. Traditionally the class of the Mexican players is greater than the Jamaicans. In official matches between these two teams only twice the victory was for the Jamaicans and 11 times the winners was Mexico. There are just three draws between these two teams.
Of course, this bet can definitely be called a risky one, since Mexico is not in their best shape. The coefficient which Bet365 offers 1.85 for their victory is not very good, but if we have to be honest, the odds are correct.
Thus relying only on the tradition I will bet with a very small amount for the visitors from Mexico.
