World Cup 2022 USMNT vs. England start time, betting odds, lines: Expert picks, FIFA predictions, bets

4 min read

The United States Men’s National Team look to rise up against mighty England on Friday when the teams face off in a Group B match at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The USMNT got off to a quick start against Wales in their opener on Monday, dominating possession and taking a 1-0 lead into halftime. But the second half was a different story, and they came away with a disappointing 1-1 draw. Now they face a loaded England team that reached the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup (while Team USA missed out). The Three Lions hammered Iran 6-2 in their opening match earlier Monday, and they can clinch a spot in the knockout round with a victory. The Americans have never lost to England in an official match (2-1-0), but the Three Lions are 8-1-2 in all-time meetings. 

Kickoff at Al Bayt Stadium is set for 2 p.m. ET. Caesars Sportsbook lists England as the -185 favorites (risk $185 to win $100) in the latest England vs. USA odds. The USMNT are the +525 underdogs, a draw is priced at +300, and the over/under for total match goals is 2.5.

Why you should back England

The Three Lions looked like a team on a mission Monday. They got a brace from Bukayo Saka and a goal apiece from Jude Bellingham, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish. Star striker Harry Kane didn’t get a goal, but he had two assists and was in the middle of it all. He could cause a lot of trouble for a defense that had trouble once Kieffer Moore came on for Wales on Monday. Kane needs three goals to break Wayne Rooney’s all-time England scoring record of 53, and he has 13 in 15 matches since qualifying began in September 2021.

England went 8-2-0 in qualifying, scoring 39 goals while conceding just three. They are determined to make up for 2018, when they looked like they had a shot at the title before losing to Croatia 2-1 in extra time in the semifinal. Kane won the Golden Boot at that tournament, scoring six goals in six matches. The Three Lions’ scoring prowess gives them a huge advantage, as the American struggle to score goals, and that will be amplified by their need to sit back and defend. The USMNT managed just one shot on target in Monday’s match.  

Why you should back the USMNT 

The Americans know they will need a sense of urgency, and they showed it in the early going Monday. Christian Pulisic and newly minted captain Tyler Adams were making plays all over the field, and it was Pulisic’s perfect feed that set up the goal. Timothy Weah buried the chance with a sublime finish. England’s victory Monday was their first in seven games. They went 0-3-3 as they were outscored 10-4 in their Nations League campaign, which included a 4-0 loss to Hungary. 

England will be facing immense pressure throughout this tournament, while the Americans really have nothing to lose. England manager Gareth Southgate went away from his typical conservative approach against Iran, but that left the Three Lions vulnerable in the back. It was just the second time in their past 10 games that Iran scored more than once. The Americans held the ball for 59% of Monday’s match with Wales, and manager Gregg Berhalter is likely to turn to players like Gio Reyna and Brenden Aaronson to provide more in the attack.
