Mexico: Thinking About the Round of 8
Mexico missed the WC for the last time in 1990. Since 1994, Los Aztecas have always advanced to the Round of 16. The problem is that they’ve never been able to advance to the Round of 8.
El Tri has won one of their last five games, and it was against Iraq. Last Wednesday, they lost 2-1 to Sweden, a team that didn’t qualify for the WC. Alexis Vega was the scorer.
The thing is that Mexico has the talent to spare. The following players didn’t start against Sweden: Hirving Lozano, Andres Guardado, Raul Jimenez and Edson Alvarez. All four play in Europe and I can assure you that they’ll be in the starting lineup on Tuesday.
Plus, El Tri finished the qualifiers 8-4-2. They scored 17 goals and allowed only eight. In fact, no other team allowed less goals than them, not even Canada, the team that finished atop the standings.
Considering all of the above, Mexico at +185 is starting to look like a very tempting online gambling deal.
Poland: Robert Lewandowski Leading the Way
Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world. In eight seasons with Bayern Munich, he never scored less than 17 goals in the Bundesliga. He’s currently playing for Barcelona and leads La Liga scoring chart with 13 goals. He alone has scored more goals than three teams in total.
As if that wasn’t enough, he scored 25 goals in 19 games across Poland’s last two WC qualifying campaigns, including nine on the road to Qatar.
It all sounds great, right? The thing is that Lewandowski hasn’t been able to perform well on soccer’s biggest stage. In 2018, he couldn’t prevent Poland from being eliminated in the Group Stage. Plus, as mentioned before, Mexico won’t be easy prey.
“Mexico is a tough team who fights all the way to the final whistle and never gives up. They have a combination of youth and experience, and we’re well aware that the Mexicans know how to play at major tournaments. It’ll be a big challenge for us,” said Lewandowski in a recent interview.
Even so, Poland dominates the soccer lines thanks to a +175 price. Not having any major injury concerns also has a lot to do with that.

Mexico vs Poland Picks & Prediction
Is it Worth betting on the Moneyline?
Yes, it’s basically a win-win situation. If you bet $100 on Poland and they win, your payout would be $275. If you bet $100 on Mexico and they pull off the stunner, your payout would be $285. Last but not least, the draw is offering a +205 price.
Is it Worth betting ATS?
Since there’s no clear favorite, not really. Mexico is pk-105, while Poland is pk-115. Either of the options ends up representing a greater risk than the moneyline.
Is it Worth betting on the Totals?
Yes. First of all, the total is set at 2 goals. Lewandowski alone could score that many goals, but he won’t. Second of all, the total has gone over two goals in Mexico’s last three matches in all competitions. Last but not least, Poland hasn’t been able to score more than a goal in a single match since June. Summing up, Mexico is going to win but Poland will put up a good fight, enough to contribute for the total to go over.
