For Mexico vs. El Salvador, Gonzalez is backing Mexico to lead after the first half (+105). Mexico has dominated this rivalry over the years, winning eight consecutive meetings against El Salvador. Mexico secured a 1-0 victory over El Salvador in the Gold Cup in July, with Luis Alfonso Rodriguez scoring the game-winner in the 26th minute. 

Mexico has scored two or more goals in seven of its last eight matches against El Salvador, and El Tri's attack will be full of confidence after scoring three goals against Honduras. Mexico's attack is spearheaded by Hirving Lozana, who has recorded two goals and two assists in seven Serie A matches for Napoli this season. Lozana has scored 14 goals in 48 caps for the Mexican National Team. 

"This one has cashed in back-to-back games for El Tri, so I'm going back to it," Gonzalez told SportsLine. "They come out strong again against an overpowered El Salvador team and will win the first half comfortably with the hosts barely getting a good look."
