Why Bet on Toluca?

Toluca is performing above expectations, has already qualified for the Playoff, and is fighting with Club América to lead the round-robin phase. The Diablos are coming off a 5-1 thrashing of Atlético San Luis, thanks to goals from Alexis Vega, Jesús Angulo, Brian García, and a brace from Jean Meneses. Two players who scored last matchday’s goals outshone their teammates: Vega and Meneses. 

Alexis Vega arrived at Toluca after a controversial departure from Chivas. There were doubts about his commitment to his profession, but this season, he already has six goals and four assists. The Chilean Meneses came from several semesters where goals were elusive, but this season, he already has six goals and five assists, fighting to be considered one of the best in Liga MX. 

Toluca has 32 points and is a great home team, having won its last five matches. It is the club that has scored the most points at home. 

The good news for coach Renato Paiva is that they can count on Marcel Ruiz, who completed a suspension for accumulation. 

Why Bet on Cruz Azul?

Cruz Azul left behind the horror of last season when it finished at the bottom of the table. They are now third and still dreaming of finishing first. The Máquina Cementera is coming from a 2-2 draw with Atlas. The Guadalajara club scored the first two goals, but Cruz Azul equalized with goals from Rivero and Candido. 

Martín Anselmi’s team has 30 points and needs to beat Toluca and for América’s loss versus Puebla to finish first. However, it’s notable that among the ten teams currently qualifying, they are the second worst offensively.So far, they have only 22 goals, while they have conceded 14, making them the second-best defense in the tournament.

Uriel Antuna is fighting for the Golden Boot, with eight goals, the same as Salomón Rondón and Federico Viñas. 

Only Uruguayan forward Guillermo Fernández is reported as injured. 

Final Betting Analysis: Toluca vs. Cruz Azul

The last time these teams met was at the home of the Máquina Cementera, and Toluca won 2-0, with goals from Tiago Volpi and Juan Domínguez. The Diablos Rojos have won the last three official matches. 

The numbers at Gambyl Exchange have Toluca as the favorite. Their Moneyline shows 1.99, Cruz Azul has 3.59, and the draw is at 3.52. 

Cruz Azul has proven to be a strong team. However, Toluca has had a great close to the tournament and will end up getting the win, so they will finish at the top of the table, alone or tied with Club America. We’ll go for a 2-1.

Go for a win for the locals. If you bet $100 at 1.99, you will gain $99 for a total payout of $199.
