Whether you’re watching every minute of every match or just catching a case of World Cup fever, there’s nothing better for an American soccer (or football/futbol) fan than supporting the United States on a global stage.
With the U.S. Men’s National Team set to compete in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar this November and the U.S. Women’s National Team preparing for the 2023 World Cup in Australia & New Zealand next summer, this is a great time to cheer on the Stars and Stripes.
And if sheer patriotism isn’t enough for you to peak your interest, maybe learning how best to bet on our American soccer teams will help.
Here are the latest USMNT odds and USWNT lines, as well as some of our favorite USA betting predictions for their upcoming tournaments.
USA Men’s World Cup Odds
USMNT Group Stage Fixtures
Group B: USA vs Wales
- 3-Way Handicap: USA (+160) | Draw (+195) | Wales (+200)
- Draw No Bet: USA (-135) | Wales (+105)
- Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (+178) | Under 2.5 (-220)
After failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the U.S. men will open against a Welsh side that hasn’t played on this stage since 1958.
This should be a tightly-contested match as both teams battle the nerves of the occasion. A single goal could be enough to see the U.S. pick up three key points. For more in-depth analysis, check out our USA vs Wales predictions.
Group B: England vs USA
- 3-Way Handicap: England (-175) | Draw (+290) | USA (+500)
- Draw No Bet: England (-550) | USA (+370)
- Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (+100) | Under 2.5 (-122)
The importance of the getting at least a point from the opener is magnified by the schedule, as the U.S. will face Group B favorite England in the second round of fixtures. The Three Lions reached the semifinals of the World Cup four years ago, and are deservedly a heavy favorite in this match.
However, Gregg Berhalter‘s squad is much more comfortable when it can sit back and counter, so it wouldn’t shock me if the U.S. got a result in this match. It’s happened before, as the Americans shocked England in a 1-1 draw back in 2010 — the last time these two nations faced off in the group stage. For more, read our England vs USA predictions.
Group B: Iran vs USA
- 3-Way Handicap: Iran (+280) | Draw (+240) | USA (+100)
- Draw No Bet: Iran (+175) | USA (-230)
- Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (+116) | Under 2.5 (-140)
The U.S. will close group play against Iran in a match that will transgress beyond the touchlines and into the geo-political sphere. The Americans are slight favorites to win this contest and avenge their 2-1 defeat to Iran in the 1998 World Cup in France. Whether that will be enough to advance out of Group G remains to be seen. For a tactical breakdown, check out our Iran vs USA predictions.
USMNT Group Stage Odds
Qualify From Group B (-105)
Win Group B (+550)
Oddsmakers have the U.S. as slight favorites to progress to the knockout rounds, ahead of Wales (+110) and Iran (+270). The Americans have reached the Round of 16 in three of their last four appearances at the World Cup, however, this relatively young squad is very inexperienced at this level.
To Reach Quarterfinals (+430)
To Reach Semi-Finals (+1600)
To Reach the Final (+5000)
To Win World Cup (+15000)
USA Men’s Soccer Best Bet
USA: Qualify From Group B (-105) at FanDuel Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Even though sportsbooks have the United States and Wales nearly even, team USA has a superior roster and should be listed as a bigger favorite to qualify out of Group B.
By no means will it will be a cakewalk for the USMNT, as both Wales and Iran will likely sit back and force the Americans to break them down. However, the United States has game-changers in Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna that should provide them with enough firepower to secure a position in the Round of 16.

USA Women’s Soccer Odds
To Win the 2023 Women’s World Cup (+300)
The U.S. Women’s National Team is the most successful in the women’s game, having won four World Cup titles, including the previous two editions in France (2019) and Canada (2015). As such, it is no surprise that the U.S. are favored to win the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
While the Americans have had a relatively easy time in prior tournaments, this will be no such cake-walk. The rest of the world is catching up in the women’s game, with teams like Euro 2021 finalists England (+430) and Germany (+550) posing a real threat.
The U.S. dropped a recent trio of friendlies against England, Germany, and Spain, but those results are just the type of motivation that this squad thrives on. It won’t be easy, but backing the Americans to three-peat at +300 is a good bet.
