Mexico can retain the Gold Cup for only the second time in their history and break the hearts of home fans with a win over USA on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in California.
El tri needed extra time to see of Honduras in the semi final but go into the match against the USA confident of a win.
Despite the USA having home advantage, Jose Manuel de la Torre’s side are favourites to win the game at 7/5, while Bob Bradley’s men are a 19/10 bet and the draw is priced at 21/10.
One reason for Mexico attracting a large number of the football bets is the form of Manchester United hitman Javier Hernandez.
The attacker, known affectionately as “The Little Pea”, secured a semi final win with a goal in the 99th minute, taking his tournament tally to seven in five matches.
Such form is likely to see Mexico hold on to their CONCACAF crown and bwin is offering odds of 3/4 on Hernandez and co to lift the trophy.
USA however will be fully charged up ahead of playing in of front of an expectant home crowd, and are seen as a 19/20 bet to secure the title for a fifth time, which would even the score with Mexico.
The 1991, 2001, 2005 and 2007 champions have Fulham star Clint Dempsey to thank for their place in the final after the forward helped secure a 1-0 win over Panama, extending his personal haul to three.
However, recent clashes between the two suggest that Mexico will represent a step up in class of opposition.
The sides have not faced each other since 2009, but that year saw El tri win both matches, one 2-1 and the other by a 5-0 scoreline. This latter result has become something of a trademark for the Mexicans, after they secure back-to-back 5-0 victories in the opening two matches of this year’s competition.
Backing the Mexicans to humiliate the USA by the same score this time is available in bwin’s “any other score” market and is priced at odds of 35/1.
By way of contrast, the more likely 2-1 win for de la Torre’s side is seen as a 35/4 bet.
However, with Mexico in such prolific form in front of goal – they have scored no less than 18 goals in the competition so far – a good deal of the sensible football bets could go on the away side scoring in both halves of the match, which is priced at 31/10.
