Odds, picks & predictions

Iran: +300
Draw: +235
USA: +100

Moneyline pick: USA +100

The Americans might have put themselves in some hot water with their social media antics ahead of this match, not that Iran needed any additional motivation to compete. This match might have a chippy start, and it’s not out of the possibility Iran’s defenders take a few cheap shots on the American forwards. However, Gregg Berhalter’s squad is fighting for its World Cup life. Expect USA to do enough to get a win here and secure a place in the round of 16.

How each team can advance:

  • Iran will advance with a win, or a draw combined with a England win or draw against Wales. A loss will eliminate Iran.
  • USA will advance with a win. A draw or loss will eliminate USA.
