World Cup Top Picks for Tuesday
Moneyline: England (-240) ★★★
Wales suffered against USA (1-1) but managed to save a point in their debut match following a Gareth Bale penalty in the second half. Against Iran (0-2), the story was different. Wales were rarely dangerous and looked tired and toothless in defeat.
Despite England drawing against USA themselves, they start as big favorites in the clash against a Wales side that doesn’t look like having the means necessary to hurt their neighbors.
Spread: Netherlands -2 (+140) ★★★
Qatar is one of the weakest teams at the World Cup it hosted. They were the first to lose all chances of qualification into the last 16 and looked shaky both against Ecuador (0-2) and Senegal (1-3). When they face the strongest side in Group A they shouldn’t look beyond limiting the proportions of their failure.
The Netherlands doesn’t have the playing dimension they did in the past, but they still seem capable of taking advantage of an opponent with as many liabilities as Qatar.
Total: Iran-USA Over 3.5 (+330) ★★★
This is a match with an importance that goes way beyond that of a World Cup decider. The two teams not only play for qualification, but for their people at home. USA and Iran are political rivals, so defeat and victory should be regarded at a different scale.
After their convincing win over Wales (2-0), Iran could confirm qualification with a positive result against USA. It’s highly unlikely that the two teams will sit back and wait for their opponent's mistakes to profit. We should see goals coming at both ends in this highly-anticipated encounter.
Upset: Iran to win at halftime or full time (+160) ★★★
Iran are navigating on a wave of confidence thanks to their 2-0 win over Wales. It’s almost as if everyone forgot the 6-2 defeat against England in the first game at the 2022 World Cup. All the focus and energy are now concentrated on the USA clash.
Iran have in-form players and a highly experienced manager in Carlos Queiroz. USA performed better than initially expected in Qatar but judging by the inconsistency that characterized them under Gregg Berhalter, Iran should look to take advantage. The Asian giants winning either at halftime or full-time should be taken into consideration with the tempting +160 odds via DraftKings.
Prop bet: Taremi to have two or more shots on target (+200) ★★★
Mehdi Taremi, Iran’s in-form forward, will concentrate much of his team’s offensive energy against the USA. If he’s on a good day, it’s not at all difficult to see him threaten the net twice against the USA. Taremi as an anytime goalscorer is +300 via FanDuel, with a brace from the FC Porto man priced at +2600.
Parlay: Over 2.5 goals and Over 9.5 corners Netherlands vs. Qatar (+232) ★★★
The Netherlands will not hold back from scoring if they get their chances. Given that their game largely involves the flanks, the possibility of many corners is also high. There were 13 corners in the Netherlands vs. Senegal match, which the Dutch dominated for large parts.
In the Netherlands vs Ecuador clash, there were only seven corners, but the game was close and with way fewer Dutch actions in the Ecuadorian box. This will surely not be the case against Qatar.
