Mexico are currently sitting bottom of Group C having failed to score and only picked up a solitary point through two games but a win against Saudi Arabia will give them a great chance of moving on but a win for their opponents will guarantee another game in the competition. We take a look at some of the most popular betting markets and the latest prices available over on the main Betfred site…

Lovers of free-flowing front-foot football will not have spent their spare time in recent days watching highlights of Mexico’s attacking displays. Gerardo Martino has faced criticism back home that former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez was left out of his final squad and when you consider how lacklustre his side have looked in front of goal, you can see why fans are not the happiest.

We’ve added plenty of new player prop bets that are available around 24-48 hours before kick-off including tackles, assists and Shots on Target. You can check out all our latest prices for this one via the Latest Saudi Arabia vs Mexico Odds button below.

Latest Saudi Arabia vs Mexico Odds

One set of fans that are pretty darn happy however are Saudi Arabia’s as they are still riding the high of beating Argentina in their opening game. A 2-0 reversal to Poland did little to dampen their spirit and you could argue that they were very unlucky to come away from that game with nothing. Herve Renard’s side had 64% of the possession and did create good chances but they disappointed in key moments in front of goal whilst the Poles were clinical, scoring twice from three shots on target.

Mexico are priced up as the 7/10 favourites in the Match Result Market and that seems very short to me. I wouldn’t be touching them at odds-on. The draw is 16/5 and Saudi Arabia are 19/5 to win the game.

World Cup Betting Odds

I would argue that if you took the names off the two teams and just went by how both sides have played without knowing their respective football histories, then you would make The Falcons favourites.

In turn the top seven choices in the goalscorer markets are all representing Mexico. Raul Jimenez continues to be the favourite as the Wolves front man is a 23/20 choice to hit the back of the net. Saudi striker Salah Al-Shehri has scored 11 goals in 22 games for his country and whilst this isn’t a tipping preview, the 13/5 available on him to score anytime seems like a better value play to me.

The traders have BTTS as a relatively short 4/6 as of the time of writing and if you want to roll the dice and back Saudi Arabia to win to nil – 15/2.
