We’re officially less than a month away from the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and the excitement is tangible.

The excitement for this year’s event is exceptionally great for two reasons.

These two reasons are that this is the first World Cup to be played during the legal online sports betting era, and the USMNT qualified for the tournament and will be representing the United States on the World’s largest stage in Qatar this autumn.

Collectively, this means that means millions of Americans will be able to use World Cup betting apps to wager on the USMNT when they make their run for the world’s most coveted trophy in sports, the FIFA World Cup Trophy. 

USA World Cup Group Odds – Group B

Here are the current odds to win Group B (the USA’s group) this World Cup:

  • England (-1300)
  • USA (+110)
  • Wales (+110)
  • Iran (+250)

As you can see, England is the heavy favorite to win Group B, with the United States and Wales holding equal odds of finishing second, followed by Iran, who is the least probable of the four countries to win the group coming into the competition.

USA vs. Wales Preview

The United States will begin their competition against Wales on November 21 at 2:00 p.m. (EST). Because they are tied for second place in the group according to the oddsmakers, this game might be the determining factor for which team exits the group stage with England, who are nearly certain to qualify past the group stage again according to the odds makers.

Draw: +195
Wales: +190

Based on the pre-match odds, the bookies think the USA holds the advantage over Wales, but with 1X2 all being plus money odds, there’s no heavy favorite, which should only make the match that much more exciting to watch. Make sure to tune in at 2:00 p.m. (EST) on Monday, November 21, 2022, when the USMNT takes on Wales in what could arguably be the most important match of the group stage for the USA. 

Odds of US Winning World Cup

The USA’s odds of winning the entire tournament are very slim, listed at +12000 on most major betting apps. However, with such steep odds, if the USMNT manages to pull off the improbable, a $100 bet on the USA to win the tournament would net you a cool $12,000.
