For Mexico vs. El Salvador, Gonzalez is backing Mexico to lead after the first half (+105). El Salvador has struggled to secure a positive result against Mexico in recent years. In fact, El Salvador has lost eight consecutive matches against Mexico.
El Salvador also limps into Wednesday's contest having lost three of its last four games. Los Cuscatlecos have struggled to find the back of the net, having been held scoreless in three of their first five FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Mexico enters Wednesday's match full of confidence after scoring three goals against Honduras. Hirving Lozana scored Mexico's third and final goal and the Napoli forward will be looking to break down El Salvador's defense again on Wednesday. Lozana has recorded 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 win the first half comfortably with the hosts barely getting a good look."
