Fox Sports Betting Analyst Picks Jason McIntyre,
Wales, which qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1958, is battle-tested in 2022 after facing the likes of Belgium, the Netherlands and other World Cup teams. This is good news. bad news? They went 2–5–1 with wins over Ukraine and Austria. And none of these teams could qualify for the World Cup.
Everyone knows star Gareth Bale, one of LAFC’s heroes in the MLS Cup. But America has a more talented roster with more depth. Will the youngest team in the field – the USMNT – come out and surprise Wales by playing with reckless abandon? Or will they come out nervous and skittish, with a lack of experience being a major factor?
The youngest team at the 2018 World Cup, Nigeria, lost 2–0 to Croatia in their opening match. Belgium, the youngest team at the 2014 World Cup, won their first game 3–0 against Panama and reached the semi-finals, losing to France.
I want the USA to win 2-1 here, so I’ll bet on the exact score. The bet is definitely worth splurging on, especially at 9-1 odds. If you want to go the safe route, take the USMNT to win, at +145 on FOX bets.
