Share SOUTH AFRICA V MEXICO Betting Tips (World Cup June 11): The World Cup 2010 kicks off on Friday with hosts South Africa entertaining a flamboyant Mexico side and you'll see that as usual in big international tournaments, the bookmakers tend to side with the unders in the early stages. I'll be tipping against it and looking to take advantage of this once again as the over 2.5 goals betting in a lot of the early matches can be backed at odds as high as 13/8 in some books....

South Africa V Mexico falls right into this bracket. It was priced up at 13/8 for over 2.5 golas but cut into best price 6/4 currently. Mexico have looked full of flair and attacking threat in the build up friendlies with Javier Hernandez (UTD's new signing) looking a huge find for them, scoring 3 goals in the last 3 games. Both teams are not great in defensive departments and South Africa carry a threat of their own from players such as Steven Pienaar and watch out for Bernard Parker in this tournament as he looks to fill the boots of Benni McCarthy and the hosts look to progress further than everyone expects.
