Along with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model. The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In the three seasons since its inception, Soccerbot is up an incredible 2,000 percent on Premier League picks. That’s right — 2,000 percent.
In the last two competitive meetings between the teams on U.S. soil, El Tri won both. Mexico beat the USA, 2-1, in a World Cup qualifier match in Columbus in November 2016. A year earlier, El Tri defeated the Americans, 3-2, in the CONCACAF Cup. In addition, Mexico is unbeaten in nine matches this year. It’s won eight times in regulation and beat Costa Rica in penalties in the Gold Cup quarterfinals.
Mexico has arguably the best goalkeeper in the tournament, Guillermo Ochoa. In the quarterfinal against Costa Rica, the 33-year-old saved a penalty in sudden death to help El Tri advance. And in the semifinal against Haiti, he kept the Haitians scoreless for 120 minutes.
But just because Mexico appears to have the edge on paper doesn’t mean it’s the best value on the USA vs. Mexico money line on Sunday. The United States is playing its best soccer in quite some time. The Americans have won five straight matches, their longest winning streak since winning five straight in the 2017 Gold Cup.
United States has been successful at the Gold Cup on both ends of the pitch, which shows in their tournament-best goal differential (+14). In five matches in the Gold Cup 2019, the Americans have scored 15 goals, the second most by the USA in the Gold Cup. The United States has received goals from seven players, with six scoring more than once. In addition, the Americans have allowed only one goal in five matches.
