Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Monterrey?
Monterrey didn’t start the season the way they had hoped. The team debuted losing to Chivas, at home, but won a very difficult game against Cruz Azul, away from home, in the last round, by 3-2.
In the two matches in which they played for the Mexican championship, Monterrey showed a very large offensive volume, having kicked more than 15 times on goal in each of the matches. Against Chivas, who shot only six times on goal, Monterrey was punished and left with defeat. However, against Cruz Azul, the team showed a lot of resilience, looking for the goal until the last minute of the match.
With 3 points gained, Monterrey is in 8th place at the moment and, if they beat San Luís, they can move up a few positions and overtake the opponent of the next game on the leaderboard.
Why Bet on San Luís?
Atlético San Luís has been one of the highlights of this year’s Clausura tournament, with a win and a draw achieved in two matches. In the debut, San Luís beat Necaxa, away from home, by 3-2, in a very balanced and very emotional match.
In the second round, playing at home, they drew with Chivas (0-0) and remained in second place, with 4 points. The Brazilian Rodrigo Dourado has been the main player of the team, and his vitality in the midfield is essential for the combative game of the San Luís team.
Facing Monterrey away from home will not be an easy task, but judging by the last good performances, Atlético can hope to have a good game against the hosts.
Final Betting Analysis: Monterrey vs. San Luís
Despite losing the opening match at home, Monterrey is very strong when playing at home. San Luís has been surprising so far, but the technical quality of the hosts should be enough to define the scoreboard.
We believe in Monterrey’s victory in this game.
If you put $100 into Rayados’ win, you could get $57 back for a total payout of $157.
