World Cup Betting Preview: Mexico v Cameroon

Mexico look well worth a wager at the 13/10 on offer with Paddy Power to beat Cameroon in the first of the day’s World Cup games(5pm KO, Live on ITV1).

It will be only the second ever meeting between the two countries, with Mexico winning the first 1-0 in a friendly back in 1993.

The slightly worrying stats are that Mexicans have lost more games than any other team in World Cup Finals, and have also never beaten an African team in the tournament.

However, they have by far the stronger side on paper with the likes Man United’s Javier Hernandez, Bayer Leverkusen’s Andres Guardado and Villarreal striker Giovani dos Santos in the squad..

Given his tremendous strike rate for Mexico (35 goals in 62 appearances), Hernandez would be an obvious starting point as far as the goalscorer markets are concerned.

However, he has not featured as much as he would have liked for club and country this season and is likly to start on the bench.

That rules him out of the first goalscorer market, but it would be no surprise to see him come off the bench and the 6/1 available with bet365 and BetVictor in the last goalscorer betting makes plenty of appeal.
