  • More/Less goals: More than 2.5 (+120) | Less than 2.5 (-175)

Mexico vs Poland odds are current as of Monday, October 24, on BetMGM Sportsbook, unless otherwise stated.

Surprisingly, Poland come into this match as favorites, considering both nations’ history at the World Cup.

Bettors are also expecting a low scoring affair, with under 2.5 goals taken to -175. However, with a superstar striker like Robert Lewandowski on the court, supporting the sub could be risky in this game.

Mexico vs Poland Prediction

Mexico 0-1 Poland

The Pole is set to move up from the group stage this year after failing for Lewandowski’s entire career. However, it will be a disappointment for the nation if they cannot capitalize on having one of the best strikers in the world in their squad.

There will be familiar faces from the Mexican side, especially the goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. He will be vital for the team to win this game and get out of the group stage. The Mexican attack will be led by the Napoli man Hirving Lozano.

I expect a defensive game from Mexico, which will make it difficult for Poland to break through the baseline. However, at the end of the day, Poland are the more talented of the two teams, and with Lewandowski they are still a threat to score a goal.

Mexico vs Poland Betting Tips

Poland are coming off a disappointing result at Euro 2020. They failed to get out of their group in this tournament.

Mexico haven’t made it past the round of 16 since 1986

Despite being slightly favored to win this game, Poland are only -115 away from making it out of the group, while Mexico are down -120 away from qualifying for the knockout stages.

Both teams struggle to score goals in international competitions, so a low-scoring affair is the most likely outcome.

BET: 1 unit

Poland are expected to win this game, but there’s a good chance this game will end in a draw, so it’s a safe bet. As this is the first game of the tournament for both teams, there could be some rust and they will play it safe. On the other hand, a defeat in the first match could be detrimental, so both nations could play more conservatively, trying to get at least a point.
