Cameroon vs Mexico Betting Preview
While the Brazil vs. Croatia opening World Cup match is HUGE the other Group A match is also a big one between Cameroon and Mexico. Mexico is the betting favorite in the match facing a Cameroon squad that has the worst odds to win Group A.
Bovada has Mexico with World Cup betting odds of +110 with Cameroon at +275 and a draw line of +225.
While every group match is big in the World Cup this one is very important for both Mexico and Cameroon, who each may need to three points to have any chance to advance to the last 16. The reason is each will still have to face Brazil and Croatia, who are the two squads with the best betting odds to win the group (see the latest group odds at BookMaker).
Mexico barely made the World Cup and their star player in Manchester United's Javier Hernandez may be starting on the bench with his recent struggles. However, the squad has a solid offense with the duo of Oribe Peralta, who was the hero when Mexico beat Brazil in the Olympic final two years ago, and Giovani Dos Santos.
Rafael Marquez is the anchor of the Mexico defense that will be facing a Cameroon squad that has one win in their last four World Cup tournaments. Still, the African squad does have a good attack led by world-class players MF Alex Song from Barcelona and FW Samuel Eto'o from Chelsea.
While Cameroon has a good GK in Charles Itandje Mexico has a better offense and midfield and they will play well in this match. Mexico will score and keep Cameroon from doing so winning and taking the three points.
