Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: USA +140
The Americans have been waiting for this moment for eight years. Gregg Berhalter’s group is young, talented and hungry to prove they are the generation to make a deep run at the World Cup. This is the money match for both teams. Wales might have the best player on the pitch in Bale, but USA has the better overall team. Take the Americans to get this World Cup started with a win.
