Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: USA +145
In what will serve as essentially a dress rehearsal for June’s Nations League semifinal clash, the United States will look to keep El Tri at bay when they meet up in Arizona on Wednesday night. The USMNT is unbeaten in their last four straight against the Mexican side, with El Tri’s last win coming in 2019.
This will be the first time the USA will play against newly-hired coach Diego Cocca, who earned the managing job after previous coach Tata Martino’s side failed to advance out of the group stage in Qatar last November.
The USA is going through a coaching change of their own, with no permanent coach hired while Anthony Hudson serves as interim manager. His squad for this match consists mostly of MLS-based players, since the match is taking place outside of a FIFA window which leaves the European players tied to their clubs this late in the season.
Given the track record of USA against Mexico in recent years and the fact it’s being played in the States, I’m taking the USMNT to get the win here and keep their unbeaten streak alive.
