Brazil - Mexico Betting Preview: Expect South Americans to triumph in high-scoring game

El Tri are a good side and will have huge support in Dallas on Sunday, but Adam Bate expects Mano Menezes' Brazil to continue unbeaten run with another victory in the US
Mexico came into this season on the back of Gold Cup success and, after fielding a largely experimental side in the Copa America, have kept up their good form.

Wins over Serbia and Venezuela were followed by a comfortable victory over Wales last weekend.

The national side will also effectively have home advantage when they meet Brazil on the supposedly neutral ground of Texas in the United States.

In fact there will be more than 100,000 people packed into Cowboys Stadium in Dallas and if that cannot inspire this Mexican team nothing can.

Mexico are 39/10 (4.90) with Panbet to delight their fans and cause an upset here.

The problem, of course, is the opposition. Brazil have been in simply superb form of late - the likes of Neymar and Hulk are the major goal threats but there are so many different ways this team can cause danger.

Wednesday evening’s convincing 4-1 defeat of the USA certainly brought their North American opponents down to earth with a bump and ruined their recent good record.

Mano Manezes' side have now won their last eight matches since beating Argentina last year and that sequence includes a 2-1 win over Mexico – in Mexico – in October.

When you throw in last weekend’s 3-1 success against Denmark in front of a Hamburg crowd backing the Danes it becomes clear that an away stadium, however big, is unlikely to stop this side.

Brazil are 3/4 (1.75) favourites with Panbet for this one and with good reason. The draw is available at 11/4 (3.75).

If you fancy Mexico to feel inspired and get any kind of result here then the double chance market could be of interest and you can back them not to lose at 28/25 (2.12) with Panbet.

But the best bets here are to back Brazil and to back goals. There have been nine goals in Brazil’s two victories this week and they have conceded in both of them.

As a result, the price of 77/100 (1.77) for over 2.5 goals also looks a good one here in what promises to be a highly entertaining contest.

Best Bets:

Brazil to win at 3/4 (1.75) with Panbet

Over 2.5 goals at 77/100 (1.77) with Panbet
