Brazil vs Mexico Men’s Soccer Gold Medal Game Odds
Brazil and Mexico will match up against each other in the gold medal game for the 2012 Men’s Olympic soccer tournament. Brazil came in as the favorites to win the gold, and are now just one win away from realizing it.
It has been a tournament of some big surprises though throughout the course of it. Most notably was Spain, who failed to even make it out of group play. It was a shocking result considering that Spain had just won the Euro 2012 cup, and were just behind Brazil on the list of gold medal favorites.
