Mexico will kick off the 2021 Gold Cup in Group A against Trinidad & Tobago Saturday, with the tournament favorites looking to start in style. Mexico is +100 to lift the Cup according to DraftKings Sportsbook and should be able to handle Trinidad & Tobago in the opener.
Here’s how bettors are approaching Saturday’s Gold Cup action.
July 10 betting splits
Mexico vs. Trinidad & Tobago
Mexico (-1667): 47% handle, 86% bets
Tie (+770): 4% handle, 2% bets
Trinidad & Tobago (+3500): 49% handle, 12% bets
Surprisingly, Trinidad & Tobago is getting slightly more money than Mexico at 49 percent compared to 47 percent. However, El Tri is getting 86 percent of all wagers on the match. This means the few bettors backing Trinidad are willing to risk more money due to insane payout of the underdogs to get an upset. These bettors are likely going for the big reward rather than believing Trinidad will actually win the match. The majority of the betting public is still taking Mexico to win.
