USA vs. Venezuela pick

Pick: Venezuela

The Venezuela team has already overcome arguably the best group in the WBC and brings an all-star pitching lineup of Jose Altuve, Ronald Acuna Jr., Salvador Perez and Luis Arraez. Mike Trout has been carrying much of the USA’s success on his back up to this point, and the Americans will need to dig deeper into their lineup talent to succeed against Venezuela.
