USA vs Mexico: Cincinnati stalemate makes sense

Kick-off: 0210, 13/11/2021

Stadium: TQL Stadium

USA and Mexico are both going along nicely in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying group and may settle for a share of the spoils in Cincinnati.

Unbeaten El Tri are top of the table on 14 points after four wins and two draws, with the Stars and Stripes three back in second place.

It was all square between these sides in this summer’s Gold Cup final at the end of 90 minutes, before America snatched a 1-0 extra-time triumph.

We’re happy to take 2/1 for a stalemate on this occasion as our first USA vs Mexico prediction.

A Look At United States’ Betting Odds

USA began this campaign with a couple of draws against El Salvador and Canada before beating Honduras 4-1 away and Jamaica 2-0 at home.

The Stars and Stripes suffered a setback when beaten 1-0 in Panama but responded by coming from behind to shade Costa Rica 2-1.

Gregg Berhalter is now hoping to enjoy a genuine home advantage over Mexico at TQL Stadium.

He told The Enquirer: “In the context of World Cup qualifying, it’s just another game, right?

“But in terms of the rivalry and the history and the times when you get to play them with a pro-US crowd in a great stadium, it makes it special.

“It really does and we’re focused on playing our game, playing a good game, and just looking forward to giving this young group the experience of this game.”

Looking at the 31/10 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.

A Look At Mexico’s Betting Odds

Mexico have traditionally been top dogs in this region and have reached seven straight World Cup tournaments, going out in the round of 16 on each occasion.

El Tri were narrowly eclipsed by the USA in two finals this year, also going down in extra-time of June’s Nations League decider in Denver.

However, some players were otherwise engaged in helping to secure a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

This campaign has gone smoothly, with last month bringing a 3-0 home win over Honduras and a 2-0 success in El Salvador.

Gerardo Martino won’t have lost much sleep over a 3-2 friendly loss to Ecuador and Mexico will be fully focused again here.

A white-hot atmosphere will await them in Cincinnati, but experience is a major asset of this squad.

Guillermo Ochoa, Hector Moreno and Andres Guardado have over 400 caps between them, while Hector Herrera is in the 90s and Raul Jimenez just behind him.

El Tri shouldn’t wilt under pressure and 21/4 for a 1-1 stalemate is added to our USA vs Mexico betting tips.
