- More less : 2.5 (O: -105 | U: -120)
United States 1, Panama 0
Silver Line (ML)
USA (-230) is the best team, but the money line price is too expensive to bet on USA. Typically, when I pass money line value, I like to look at whether both teams will score or not.
Considering the last game between these two teams had only 4 shots on target, I would bet against an abundance of opportunities. However, the BOTH TEAMS SCORING “NO” is priced at -165.
I prefer to play Direct Under as the best bet.
That said, D. Sergino DestM Gio Reina and Pulisic all missed that October game. The bottom two should see plenty of minutes as the USMNT look to lock in their World Cup spot.
BET the LESS THAN 2.5 (-120).
The United States had good attempts against Mexico but did not convert. In 12 World Cup qualifying matches, USA have scored 16 goals and conceded only 7.
Panama have scored 15 goals and allowed 14 in 12 matches. USA are 1-6 O/U in their last 7 international matches in all competitions. Panama are 1-4 O/U out of 2.5 overall in their last 5 games.
Given those records and the quality of USA’s defense in the qualifying rounds, I’ll go for under bets, especially since both teams finish one game on Thursday and have another on Wednesday.
