Soccer Free Pick: Cruz Azul vs. Club America
Mexican Soccer Free Pick: Cruz Azul vs. Club America
#2093777 OVER 2.5 -110 (Sunday, March 15 @ 10:15 PM ET)
In response to the cancellations of many major sporting events, bettors have turned to Liga MX and UFC. The Liga MX is currently in their Clausera (Closing) season. Cruz Azul and Club America are sitting at second and third place, respectively, just below table leader Leon. That’s where the comparisons end. Cruz Azul has averaged 4.11 goals per match, with every match having at least three goals scored. Adding to that, their averaging shots on goal is 6.11, much higher than the league average of 4.34. Cruz Azul wants a fast-paced, high-tempo soccer match.
Club America is very versatile in their play. The match against conservative Tijuana resulted in a 0-0 draw with only five total shots on goal combined. Tijuana is the slowest paced team in Liga MX with an average of 1.98 goals and 6.67 shots on goal. Conversely, last week against fast-paced Pumas UNAM, Club America played to a 3-3 draw with 13 shots on goal. Club America has shown that they often allow their opponents to dictate the pace of their matches. If that happens tonight, it’s obvious the pace that Cruz Azul wants to play. The match should easily get OVER 2.5 goals.
