Best bet on the Tube

 

The United States and Mexico meet in a World Cup qualifier tonight in Mexico City ( 7:15 p.m., ESPN). In this final stage of CONCACAF qualifying for next year’s World Cup in Brazil, only three teams out of six will lock up a berth, with the fourth team landing in a playoff game against the Oceania winner. Mexico is tied for third and needs a win after disappointing draws with Honduras on Friday and Jamaica in February. The U.S. lost its opener to Honduras in February. It moved into second after beating Costa Rica 1-0 in the middle of a snowstorm last week, though FIFA is studying a protest from Costa Rica, which wants a replay. – AP
