Brazil Team News
Brazil assembled a very strong lineup for this qualifying window, led by stars such as Didi Louzada, Marcelinho Huertas, Rafael Luz and Leonardo Meindl. That´s why their defeat at the hands of Puerto Rico three days ago came as a surprise.
After not being able to take down Colombia away from home in the previous window, Brazil have now lost two games in a row. They are expected to rebound against Mexico in front of their fans, but their surging opponents might be a tough nut to crack.
Mexico Team News
After their famous wins over Puerto Rico and the US at the start of the qualifiers, Mexico have started faltering. They´ve made a lot of improvements recently but it seems they still don´t have enough to consistently keep up with the top teams on the continent.
Led by their former NBA player Jorge Gutierrez and profilic scorer from Europe Francisco “Pako” Cruz, they were expected to routinely beat Colombia at home couple of days ago. In the end they suffered a surprising defeat in overtime after leading by 20 points at the start of the second half.
Brazil vs. Mexico Prediction
Things didn´t go according to plan for both of these teams in their initial games but Mexico should feel the effects of their loss much more than the hosts. The guests arrive to Brazil after a disastrous second half and the hosts have more than enough quality and experience to take advantage of that.
We see this game as a strong opportunity for Brazil to finally end their losing streak so we will back them to cover the spread and win by double-digits.
