The US is known for many things but a World Cup betting powerhouse is not one of them. Nonetheless, with a win on Wednesday versus Algeria this team has a chance to win Group C and qualify for a spot in the World Cup odds knockout competition.
And for the first time in a long while the US will actually be highly favored in a game of this magnitude in the soccer betting odds.
Coming off a very bitter draw to Slovenia in which the team saw its game winning goal in the closing minutes of that World Cup betting match disallowed by a phantom foul call by the referee. The referee has since been benched, but that doesn’t put 3 points on the board for the US and so it must win this game to ensure that it advances to the next round of the World Cup betting competition.
Slovenia is currently at the top of Group C (4 points) with the US and England each 2 points back (2 points). If all these teams draw on Wednesday Slovenia and the US advance. If England wins it advances and if the US wins it advances.
It’s a close to a must win situation as the US squad has faced at this year’s World Cup betting tournament and team should have plenty of motivation.
Fortunately for the many US soccer betting fans, it will also be a playing against a relatively easy opponent. Algeria is regarded as one of the worst teams in the World Cup odds competition and the US is heavily favored to win. In the early soccer betting odds the US is even money favorite in the betting lines. A draw would probably put the US through and pays out 11/4. Algeria, a long shot to win this World Cup betting match is listed at 19/6 odds.
The US should win this game. Even without speedy striker Robby Findley this team will be fine and up and coming player Edson Buddle should get plenty of opportunities to find the net in this World Cup betting game.
