Bet on USA vs Ghana: FIFA World Cup Odds

The USA soccer team PK (-150) has opened as betting favorites at online bookmakers in World Cup picks for their Saturday match against Ghana PK (-150). The soccer money line has the United States +135 with Ghana +200 and the draw would return +220. This means that for every $100 bet on USA soccer, bookmakers would return $135 for a profit of $35. Remember that World Cup betting depends on the first 90 minutes of the game, even if there is overtime, how the game ends at the end of the second half is how the wager will be graded. The over/under total is set at 2.5 goals UNDER (-200) so bookmakers are expecting a low scoring match while betting on the OVER (+155) would return a profit of $55 for every $100 wagered.

The USA soccer squad is beginning to take on the aura of being a team of destiny as they enter the round of 16 coming off a breathtaking and dramatic win over Algeria as -140 favorites in World Cup odds. Landon Donovan scored in extra time vs Algeria to get the Americans to the top of Group C after the United States had previously scored draws against England and Slovenia. Ghana advanced to the round of 16 from Group D. They defeated Serbia in their opener 1-0 and followed that up with a 1-1 draw with Australia before losing their finale to Group D winner Germany 0-1. Ghana is the final African team to remain in the tournament, which is being held in South Africa.

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari said the team wants to represent the continent with success. «We want to do it for Africa,» said Muntari. «We want to break records.» The Americans will not make it easy for Muntari and Ghana as they have played with grit and determination. Their draw against Slovenia was a highly controversial affair as team USA rallied from a 0-2 deficit to score what looked to be the winning goal that was nullified by a poor call by the referee. «I wish I could understand it better but for whatever reason we seem to grow in strength and confidence as the game goes on,» said USA goalkeeper Tim Howard. This will be only the second time since 1930 that the Americans have made the Round of 16 with the last time being 1994 as the host nation. Bet USA +135 as money line favorites in FIFA World Cup betting odds vs Ghana with $32 in free casino chips.

I hope the local network television stations are ready for this one, the ratings should go through the roof. With soccer fever starting to take shape back home and former President Bill Clinton cheering them on in the stadium, how can the USA lose? By letting in silly goals, that’s how. If the USA can attack early and get a comfortable lead instead of having to fight for their lives in the final minutes, then we should see USA soccer play into the quarter-finals. If not, well… you can’t count the United States out of anything. I expect to see a 2-0 or 2-1 win for the USA soccer team.
