Outright betting on Liga MX
To win the Clausura
After a decent form in the late '70s, which saw UANL win two league titles, the team has risen to prominence since the beginning of the 2010s. After just two domestic triumphs, the Tigers have won the Apertura on four occasions and the Clausura once since 2010. This is one of the most fan-appreciated sides in Mexico, which surely provides a boost but also holds the weight of the supporters' expectations. The team finished the Apertura in 6th place, failing to turn a lot of draws into a victory, which kept them from ranking higher. One of the team's most significant advantages is that UANL has one of the league goal-scorers in their squad – the former Marseille man André-Pierre Gignac. The Frenchmen has been scoring for Tigres for five years now and has an incredible goal-scoring rate finding the net 125 times in 207 appearances. He will be instrumental if UANL is to top the Clausura in 2021.
Top 4 Clausura finish
Currently, UNAM seems like one of the most solid sides in the Mexican Premiership. They finished the Apertura in second place, trailing Leon. Throughout the Apertura, UNAM only lost a single game but could not top the chart because of eight draws. With a better conversion rate, the team will easily be able to contend for the first place. At the same time finishing on top shouldn't bother them too much as the real aim for any side is to get into the top 4 and guarantee itself a place in the Liguilla. UNAM hasn't seen a domestic honour for almost ten years now, so they must be determined to get their hands on some silverware. With the squad's current form and a goal set, a finish in the top four seems like an easy task, especially after almost topping the chart.
To win the Clausura play-offs
Betting on the team that has won the most domestic titles to do it once again – what could go wrong. Club América has won the play-offs 13 times, with the most recent one being the 2018 Apertura. The Eagles, as they are often referred to, reached this triumph in a dominating fashion after knocking out one of the favorites UNAM with a 7-2 aggregate score. In the 2019 Apertura, Club América once again reached the finals but was beaten by Monterrey in the penalty-shootout that ensued. The latest Apertura play-offs saw them lost unexpectedly after being taken down in the quarter-finals by underdogs Guadalajara with a 1-3 score on aggregate. Club América ranked third in the league and has the most goals scored. If the team is to find a solution to the few defensive problems that it's facing, winning the Clausura play-offs seems like the ordinary thing to happen.

Over/Under Total Cards
One of the intriguing wager possibilities that came up after scanning through Liga MX stats is betting on red and yellow cards. Surprisingly, many of the average sides in the league get booked quite frequently, with Toluca leading the ranking. In 17 games, this side has had players sent-off on five occasions and also has been given 45 yellow cards. This averages a red card in every three games and nearly three yellow cards per match. Given that the other teams also get booked a lot, betting on Over/Under Total Cards in Liga MX games seems like a nice prediction.
Looking into the corner statistics, few Corner Handicap picks are standing out. For example, Tigres UANL has conceded just 44 corner kicks in 17 games, which is less than three corners against per game. At the same time, the team averages about five corners per game, which leaves a –2/-2.5 Corner Handicap window for Tigres in particular. If we take another side, Puebla, for example, we can again find a trend. Puebla is the highest corner conceding club in Liga MX with 106 corners against in 17 matches. This is also the team with the least amount of corners for with just 61 during the Apertura. This covers a +2 spread on average.
