Confederations Cup betting: Day 2 matches

Jun 15, 2013 |
The FIFA Confederations Cup continues with two matches Sunday. Here is a quick cheat sheet for the two games kicking off Father's Day.

Mexico v Italy (+240, +210, +125)

Site: Rio De Janeiro

These two sides continue the action in Group A following the opening match between Brazil and Japan Saturday. Mexico has struggled to score in recent World Cup qualifying matches and is coming off a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica. The Italians might be without scoring-threat Stephan El Shaarawy due to a muscle strain. Italy had an underwhelming performance in a friendly against Haiti resulting in a 2-2 draw.

The last time the two nations played was a friendly in 2010. Mexico won 2-1.

Probable lineups:

Spain v Uruguay (-167, +275, +125)

Site: Recife

Spain is right behind Brazil for the tourney favorites at +163 and get action started in Group B. And with good reason. Spain has World Cup and European Championship trophies and is celebrated as the best team in the world. Oh. Also, the Spaniards haven't lost in 21 matches. Uruguay will have two of the best strikers in the world on display as Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez will lead a threatening strike force. However, Uruguay has suffered some bad losses in World Cup qualifying to teams like Bolivia, Colombia and Chile.

Spain defeated Uruguay 3-1 in a friendly in February as Pedro scored twice. In the six matches the two nations have played, Uruguay has never won.
