Online betting players will witness the conclusion of Group A on Tuesday, with Mexico and Uruguay clashing to see who will end up on top of the group. Both teams have played with conviction so far in the World Cup, but they’ll be feeling safe, and a draw looks like the probable result.

  • What: World Cup Betting
  • When: Tuesday, June 22nd, 10:00 AM ET
  • Where: Royal Bafokeng Stadium, Rustenburg
  • Key Stats: Mexico has seven wins and seven draws in 17 matches against Uruguay

The Storyline

Mexico pulled out a 2-0 win over France to pull into a tie atop Group A with Uruguay, who turned on the style in a 3-0 rout of the hosts from South Africa. A draw would send both through, and a loss would keep them on four points, but their goal differential gives them a leg up on the other two teams in the group. Neither team will want to finish second in their group: the runner-up will likely play Argentina.

Who Has The Edge On Offense: Mexico Uruguay Betting

The Mexicans tore apart the French in the second half, getting goals from Javier Hernandez and Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who netted his from the penalty spot. Hernandez or Pablo Barrera should step into the starting lineup for Carlos Vela, who left the France game after 31 minutes with a hamstring problem. El Tri also got another great performance from Rafa Marquez, who is managing a lot of attacking chances from his holding role.

Diego Forlan was the talisman of Uruguay’s romp over the South Africans, scoring a pair of goals (including a 30-yard screamer that is the goal of the tournament so far), and he was a constant menace. Forlan decided to drop back behind the strikers and South Africa had no idea how to pick him up. Luis Suarez had a better game than the first, but Forlan is the key for all of Uruguay’s best moves, and he’s in great form right now.

Edge: Draw

Who Has The Edge In Defense: Mexico Uruguay Betting

Mexico didn’t have to do much against France, who were busy trying to beat themselves with terrible passing, but they dealt with everything Les Bleus threw at them, and with relative ease. They did pick up four bookings against France, but no one will miss this match through suspension. Carlos Salcido was especially impressive for the Mexicans at the back.

La Celeste has yet to allow a goal in their first two matches, and South Africa really had one good chance, which came in the second half when they headed wide of the goal. Fernando Muslera has looked calm and composed in goal for a player who turned 24 on the day of the South Africa game.

Edge: Uruguay

Notable Injuries – Mexico Uruguay Betting

Vela (hamstring) will likely be held out of this match as the Mexicans don’t really need him right now.

Uruguay has no serious injuries to speak of.

Edge: Uruguay

Totals – Mexico Uruguay Betting

Both attacks are playing extremely well right now, and they’ll want to push forward to win the group and avoid Argentina. However, we can see this playing out as a low-scoring affair, if anything.

Pick: Under 2

Mexico Uruguay Betting Prediction & Outlook

It’s a draw that is actually favored in this contest at -130, while Mexico is listed at +275, and Uruguay is listed at +320. These two have met 17 times, with Mexico claiming seven wins and seven draws, so the players are familiar with each other. Not playing Argentina in the next round is a huge motivating tool for someone to win this game, but you get the feeling that all players won’t have their foot on the gas for the entire match as they’ll feel that their passage is safe.

Bet World Cup: Draw -130
