Mexico and Canada meet on Thursday, July 29 at 10:00 p.m. ET in the 2021 Gold Cup semifinals. The match will air on FS1 and take place in Houston, Texas.

After a surprise draw in the opening match of the Cup against Trinidad & Tobago, Mexico has found its footing nicely. The team scored three first-half goals against Honduras to coast through the quarterfinal round and now meet a Canadian outfit capable of scoring goals in bunches. Canada was blanked by USMNT, but has scored in every other match. Can Mexico’s defense stay tight?

Mexico vs. Canada

Mexico: -180
Tie: +310
Canada: +525
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +100, Under -125)

Regular time ML pick: Mexico
Team to advance pick: Mexico
Best bet: Over 2.5 goals (+100)

Mexico should be able to find the net multiple times against Canada, but El Tri will also likely give up a goal to the underdogs. The Mexicans have struggled at times in front of goal, but should be able to carry some momentum from their 3-0 win over Honduras. Canada is good for a goal in this match, meaning the over at + odds is tremendous value.
