England v USA World Cup Betting Tips 25/11/2022

World Cup betting preview

England and the USA face off in the second round of World Cup 2022 fixtures on Friday evening. The friends across the Atlantic will turn rivals in this Group B clash, with plenty at stake. After a winning start, England could seal qualification with a victory. However, the USA will put up a fight. They also need maximum points after drawing in their first match at the Qatar World Cup. Who will take the spoils in this clash? The fixture kicks off at 7 p.m on Friday, and it will be shown live on ITV.

Form and Team News 

England finally ended their six-match winless streak with a dominant 6-2 victory over Iran on Monday. Bukayo Saka, Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish were on target to seal the victory. The USA made a less convincing start to their World Cup campaign. They gave up a 1-0 lead at half-time and conceded late on to draw 1-1 with Wales in Group B. Timothy Weah scored in the first half before the US gave away a late penalty. 

England captain Harry Kane has been passed fit ahead of the fixture. But midfielder James Maddison is ruled out with a knee injury. The USA have no injuries or suspensions ahead of the clash. 

Match Winner Betting

Given the starts of England and the USA in their previous matches, the bookmakers are backing one clear winner. Currently, a USA victory appears a long shot in this Group B clash. The draw with Wales leaves the USA winless in their last four matches in all competitions and with just two victories in their last 13 World Cup matches. As a result, the US is seen as an outsider, with VBet offering the best odds of victory at 26/5. A draw carries better value, considering the USA have drawn three of their last four matches. Here, Bet365 have the best odds at 10/3. But, following a commanding performance against Iran last time out, we are tipping an England victory. The Three Lions have also won four of the last five matches against the US, and BoyleSports has decent value on Gareth Southgate’s side to win. BoyleSports will return 6/10 odds for an England win. 

Over 2.5 Bet

As England and the USA showed plenty of attacking intent in their World Cup opener, the further value could come from backing a high-scorer. England’s 6-2 victory over Iran followed a 3-3 draw with Germany in the Nations League. It was also the third game in four where England has seen over 3.5 goals. In the 1-1 draw with Wales, the USA ended their two-match goalless run. They also had 1.4 expected goals, showing more attacking threats in the World Cup. Due to this, we are backing over 2.5 goals. LiveScore Bet has the best odds here at 19/20.

Anytime Goal Scorer Betting

Because we anticipate goals in the England vs USA fixture, further standout picks are available in the anytime goalscorer market. First, Timothy Weah took his chance well against Wales and showed a poacher’s instinct. The striker also ended his 10-match goalless run in the process, and he could prove a threat once more on Friday. A Weah anytime goal also comes with good odds, and Bet365 will return 11/2 odds. However, with Harry Kane fit and expected to start in this fixture, he is our anytime goalscorer pick for this match. Kane has been in exceptional form this season, and he struck eight goals in 10 before the Iran match on Monday. As a result, there is decent value in backing the Spurs man to score again, with Unibet offering 5/4 odds. 

The England and USA encounter is set to be a cracker. Each side made contrasting starts to their Group B journey, and there is still plenty to play for on match day two. These two rivals won’t hold back in a vital World Cup clash, which could lead to an entertaining contest.
