Best Bet: Japan-Canada over 2.5 goals (+130)

In its last five international fixtures, Japan has scored 28 total goals. That’s an average of 5.6 goals per game and while the competition might not be the best, it’s difficult to put up that type of number consistently. As the host country, this is the statement game for Japan. It’ll want to put as many goals in against Canada as possible. And at + odds, this is a good value bet for people making wagers.
