World Cup

  • The United States has the second-best odds to advance out of their group with -105 odds, behind only England(-2000).

AL-RAYYAN, Qatar – The 2022 FIFA World Cups kicks off in November, but legal sports betting sites have already begun offering futures and other prop bets on Team USA.

The United States will be playing in Group B, along with England, Wales, and Iran. England is the outright favorite to win the group with -300 odds, but winning the group is less important than simply advancing.

Two teams advance from the group stage based on who has the most points (3 points for win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss). FIFA betting odds suggest the United States has the best chance to secure that second spot next to outright favorite Engalnd.

Country FIFA Ranking FIFA Points Advance From Group B World Cup Title Odds
England 5 1737.46 -2000 +650
United States 14 1635.01 -105 +8000
Wales 19 1582.13 +110 +15000
Iran 23 1558.64 +450 +75000

With the United States’ status as the second highest team in the group based on FIFA World Rankings, they may be the best bet to advance from Group B outside of England.

That mindset is also enhanced when considering the US’s history against England, Iran, and Wales at the World Cup:

  • Despite a much weaker history, the United States has never lost to England at the World Cup. The US beat England in 1950, while tying them back in 2010.
  • The United States’ only loss against any of these countries in the World Cup was against Iran in 1998.
  • Wales and the United States have never clashed in the World Cup, but their most recent history includes a tie in a friendly in 2020.
