Mexico are on course to lift the Gold Cup for a sixth time and are seen as clear favourites in the football betting markets for their last-four clash against Honduras.
El Tri face Luis Fernando Suarez’s men at the Reliant Stadium in Texas later this week and are priced by bwin at 17/50 to get the win they need to reach the final.
Honduras, by way of contrast, are seen as rank outsiders at odds of 6/1, while the draw is priced at 7/2.
Having overcome Costa Rica in the quarter-finals, the challenge from Honduras cannot be totally discounted. However, Mexico have been in devastating form throughout the competition, conceding just two goals and producing back-to-back 5-0 wins in their opening two matches.
The majority of Mexico’s goals during the completion have come courtesy of Javier Hernandez, who took the English Premier League by storm last year in his debut season at Manchester United.
Affectionately known as Chicharito, the forward has hit six goals in four games, including an opening day hat-trick against El Salvador.
While Mexico have notched five on two occasions and scored at least two in every game thus far, they have failed to match the scoring prowess of Honduras during a 90-minute spell.
La Bicolor smashed seven past Grenada in the group stages, showing they are not to be underestimated in front of goal.
As such, this half of the semi-final draw is likely to be a high-scoring affair, which could tempt a number of football betting fans to get stuck into some goal markets.
bwin offers odds of 17/4 on the match producing exactly four goals, while those expecting more can back five and six goals at 29/4 and 25/2 respectively.
Also, with Mexico heavy favourites to win, bwin is offering a handicap market in order to give punters a chance to maximise their returns.
Gifting Honduras a 2-0 lead from the start sees the betting odds on a Mexico victory move to 5/2, while the draw becomes a 31/10 shot and Honduras can be backed to hold on to that lead and win at 18/25.
