Concacaf World Cup qualifying picks for Mexico vs. USMNT
Before you tune in to Thursday’s World Cup qualifiers, you need to see the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers picks from soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For USA vs. Mexico, Green is betting both teams to score at -105 odds. Both clubs are facing significant injuries, as the United States will be missing Weston McKennie, Matt Turner, Sergino Dest and Brenden Aaronson, while Mexico will be without Andrés Guardado, Rogelio Funes Mori, Julio Dominguez and Osvaldo Rodriguez.
However, both teams will still have plenty of technical ability and pace in the attack. After a poor run of form for club and country, Christian Pulisic has scored in two of his last four matches for Chelsea and connected as a super-sub in his last USMNT appearance. He’ll have a chance to add to his legend in this rivalry after scoring in two of the last three matches against Mexico.
Hector Herrera, Edson Alvarez, Corona, Hirving Lozano and Raúl Jiménez give Mexico an interesting blend going forward. El Tri have only been held scoreless four times in 27 matches against the USMNT at Estadio Azteca. Expect both sides to push with three points potentially clinching a qualifying spot depending upon other results, which is why Green likes the value presented by both teams scoring.
