USA vs. Panama prediction, odds

  • Moneyline lean: USA (-275)
  • Score prediction: USA 2-1 Panama

USA are ranked 11th in the world according to the FIFA World Rankings whereas Panama are 43rd.

While rankings are no indicator of a certain result playing out, it suggests the US are expected to come out on top and the odds reflect that.

But tournament football is a different breed and if Panama set up correctly, they could make life tough for USA.

USA vs. Panama best bet

  • Pick: USA to win and over 2.5 combined goals
  • Odds: -160 (BetMGM)

With USA looking comfortable in their opener versus Bolivia, Berhalter’s men will be desperate to put up six points in Group C ahead of playing the toughest side Uruguay.

With that being said, it’s expected that the US will go all out for this one but could leave gaps at the back meaning Panama may get on the scoresheet, making the over 2.5 combined goals a good pick.


USA vs. Panama prop bet

  • Pick: Over 2.5 total goals
  • Odds: -120 (BetMGM)

Panama created chances against Uruguay and while the US kept a clean sheet against Bolivia, they’ll be tested more on Thursday night. 

The US looked good on the attack and dangerous through the likes of Pulisic and Balogun.

  • Pick: Christian Pulisic anytime goalscorer
  • Odds: +130 (FanDuel)

Pulisic is USA’s main man and he started this tournament off with a banger cutting in from the left onto his favored right foot and hitting a rocket into the back of the net.

To put it simply, if he doesn’t score the US may have a hard time.
