Japan and Costa Rica head into their second match of the 2022 World Cup trending in opposite directions. Japan can potentially secure a spot in the knockout round if they win and other results fall their way Sunday, while Costa Rica will simply be hoping for a more respectable showing after a 7-0 loss to Spain in the opening group game.

Here’s everything you need to know for the match, along with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Japan v. Costa Rica

Date: Sunday, November 27
Time: 5 a.m. ET
TV Channel: FS1, Telemundo
Live stream:, Fox Sports App, Peacock

Odds, picks & predictions

Japan: -230
Draw: +340
Costa Rica: +750

Moneyline pick: Japan -230

You can get Japan -1.5 at +130 and Japan -2.5 at +370 on DraftKings Sportsbook, and taking them on a goal line is a great way to improve your payout. Costa Rica looked completely out of it in the opener against Spain, and there’s only so much Keylor Navas can do as a goalkeeper. Look for Japan to run up the score a bit here, although I don’t see them getting to seven goals like Spain did.
