USA vs. Netherlands Odds, Prediction
The Netherlands have been on a tear since entering the World Cup, easily beating Senegal and Qatar and tying with Ecuador. 23-year-old winger Cody Gakpo has been the team’s breakout star, scoring three of the Netherland’s five goals in their Group A matches.
Team USA, meantime, played better than expected during the group stage by fending off England and Wales for a draw in both games, and beating Iran to advance into the knockout round. Luckily, USMNT will also have star Christian Pulisic back on the field when they play the Netherlands. Pulisic collided with Iran’s goalie while scoring the USA’s winning goal on Tuesday, which lead to a pelvic contusion, but he’s been cleared to play today.
Given their higher ranking and better performance in the group stage, oddsmakers have given the Netherlands the edge with moneyline odds of -240 compared to USMNT’s +192.
In other words, it’s likely to be a close game. Be sure to use one of the above streaming services or a VPN to watch USA vs. Netherlands online today.
