Online Odds: Bovada has Mexico +115 and Croatia -140

Set to be one of the exciting final matches of World Cup round-robin play, Mexico vs Croatia is not an easy game to pick. Both teams have sleeper potential and have exhibited the ability to play with the best in the world.

Mexico is coming off of a 1-0 win over Cameroon and a 0-0 draw vs Brazil. Though they only put up 1 goal in 2 games, Mexico looked bold and creative in their attacks during the Brazil match. Their defense, led by the outstanding play of their goalkeeper, was also rock solid. Pulling a draw with Brazil puts them in position to only need a draw vs Croatia to advance, and it also proves they can battle toe to toe with the best.

GroupA Chart

Croatia on the other hand, suffered a defeat in the World Cup opener vs Brazil. However the 3-1 final score tells a misleading story. During a hard fought 1-1 game, Brazil was awarded a penalty kick in the 71st minute that viewers agreed was a bad call. Brazil’s 3rd goal came in extra time with only a few minutes remaining.

In Croatia’s bounceback game, they came out firing and annihilated Cameroon 4-0, demonstrating their offensive prowess and their defensive command. Croatia needs an outright win to advance, while a tie would send Mexico alongside Brazil to the final round of 16.

Interestingly Croatia appear to be slightly favored by the bookies. Since I feel this is very much an even match, I’m taking Mexico and the favorable odds.
