Donald Trump shock election wins adds an extra bit of spice to this weekend's world cup qualifier between USA and Mexico. Here's our betting preview to a high-tense soccer matchup.
This match is played in the swing state of Ohio and tensions will be very high after President-elect Trump called Mexican immigrants to the US "rapists" and "criminals" during his campaign, with the Republican candidate promising that if he won, he would make Mexico pay for a wall along the huge border between the two countries.
The is all the motivation that the Mexicans need for the win and in the build-up to the game, all the money has come for the visitors and they are now the clear 2.50 favorites since the election.
Mexico is the form side with just one defeat in their last 25 matches but they've only won just the once in the last six matches against the USA and that is putting me off from getting involved now that we've missed the value.
The USA have beaten the lesser nations but struggled against the bigger sides and even though they won 3-2 in their last meeting between the two I can't back them at 2.85 to win this latest clash.
A couple of bets I do like is goals in the game.
After president-elect Trump's comments this throws in some extra spice in to what is always a fiery encounter and a couple of prop bets look the best value to me in the match and I am waiting to see the bookings lines and would like to play the overs and also I am interested in a player shown a red card and being sent-off in the match.
Paddy Power have a whole host of prop bets and the one that has caught my eye is the 2.00 on a Mexican player to hit the "wall" from a free-kick and the 11.00 on Mexico to beat the American wall and score from a free-kick.
