Things are coming down to the wire in the 2021 Liga MX Torneo Clausura, round 14 will feature two big matches with Cruz Azul - Chivas de Guadalajara and Tigres - Club America. For Cruz Azul it is a game to cement their supremacy over everyone else in the league at the expense of Chivas, who have seen better days.
Tigres - Club America could be a tricky one to bet on, on one side Tigres sit tenth in the standings and Club America are second and have won five in a row, yet DraftKings have deemed Tigres the favorites.
Both games provide the bettor a lot of options, especially on the parlay to win big money. Liga MX is always crazy and sometimes could shock you with some results, but these two games are not pushovers. Here are some interesting betting options.
Cruz Azul - Chivas de Guadalajara
This Saturday underdog Chivas (+410) will go to Cruz Azul (-143) in search of their first win in 4 games. A tall order considering Cruz Azul is the best team in Mexico at the moment and sit in first place, winners of 5 straight. Chivas have not won since round 8 so picking them to end Cruz Azul’s winning streak seems remote.
Picking Cruz Azul to take the lead at half time presents an interesting betting option and at +128 it looks like a safe bet to earn some cash. Picking an over 2.5 goals in the game is also paying out a nice +110, Cruz Azul is not particularly a high scoring team and with Chivas defense flaky as of late it could be a safe bet as well, as Cruz Azul look to open the floodgates.
Tigres - Club America
If anything, this game between Tigres - Club America is all about ego, Club America are Liga MX’s biggest spenders, equally up to the challenge is Tigres who spend big and win cups. With America as the underdog at (+200) and given their recent form this could be a steal; America have been up to the challenge this season. Tigres on the other hand got a last-minute result against Querétaro and have been underachieving by their standards.
This match could be interesting to bet on Tigres scoring first, at home, and in the lead by halftime with a +180 pay out. This is a good game to bet on live as many variables can change, Tigres are back in the playoff hunt and this game is a game where they can truly measure themselves against America.
An interesting parlay for these matches would be a Cruz Azul win and a draw between America and Tigres. At $100 the bettor stands to win $620, not a bad pay day if the results go right.
