Concacaf World Cup qualifying picks for El Salvador vs. Mexico
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s World Cup qualifiers, you need to see the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers picks from soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $37,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
For Mexico vs. El Salvador, Green is betting Mexico to win and under 3.5 goals scored at -120 odds. With Mexico controlling its own World Cup destiny and El Salvador having nothing to play for, Green is confidently behind Mexico to take care of business at home. Green also is expecting a low-scoring affair, which has been Mexico’s calling card throughout qualifying.
Mexico owns one of the best defenses in the world and has pitched four straight clean sheets. The squad has even been more impenetrable at home, where it has allowed just two goals across six qualifying games in this round in Mexico.
However, Mexico’s offense hasn’t been on par with its defense, which has created defensive slugfests on the pitch. El Tri has just two total goals over its last four games and only five goals over its last seven games. With a strong defense and subpar offense, all 13 of Mexico’s qualifiers have gone under 3.5 total goals.
“[Mexico’s] attackers have been very poor,” Green told SportsLine. “Hirving Lozano, Raúl Jiménez and Jesús Corona are all excellent forwards, and they have a lot of experience playing alongside one another, but it is just not clicking for them right now. They toiled against Honduras on Sunday, and Mexico required a goal from a set piece to break the deadlock. Herrera whipped in a corner and Álvarez met it at the near post with a thumping header on 70 minutes, settling a tight, tense affair.”
