Pick through the FOX sports betting analyst Jason McIntyre:
Wales, who qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1958, are battle-tested, having faced the likes of Belgium, Holland and other World Cup teams in 2022 This is the good news. The bad news? They went 2-5-1, with wins over Ukraine and Austria. And none of these teams qualified for the World Cup.
Everyone knows star Gareth Bale, one of LAFC’s heroes in the MLS Cup. But the U.S. has a more talented and deeper roster. Will the youngest team in the field, the USMNT, come out playing with reckless abandon and surprise Wales? Or will they come off nervous and tight-lipped, with inexperience a big factor?
The youngest team at the 2018 World Cup, Nigeria, lost their opening match 2-0 to Croatia. Belgium, the youngest team at the 2014 World Cup, won their opening match 3-0 against Panama and advanced to the semi-finals, losing to France.
I like the USA to pull out a 2-1 win here, so I’ll make an exact bet. The bet is definitely worth a splash, especially at odds of 9-1. If you want to take a safer route, take the USMNT to win, at +145 at FOX Bet.
TO PICK UP: USA win 2-1 (+900 at FOX Bet)
