Why bet on Iceland versus the United States?

Iceland is in excellent form. The underdog in this contest is on a 3-match winning streak. In their last, Iceland beat a strong Czech Republic squad 2-1. Last week, the United States drew with the Czech Republic. So although Iceland isn’t as talented as the United States, the difference between the two teams isn’t as stark as many believe.

Why bet on the United States versus Iceland?

After a couple of draws, 1-1 versus Australia and 0-0 versus the Czech Republic, Team USA finally broke out with a huge, multiple goal victory. In their last, the USA squad blasted New Zealand 5-0. It was Team USA’s most impressive victory since a 6-0 domination of South Korea back on Oct. 26. The United States has a shot to play better versus Iceland than they did against New Zealand.

United States vs Iceland Betting Analysis

At the time of this writing, we don’t know the odds on the United States versus Iceland. One thing we do know is that Iceland should step onto the pitch at Toyota Stadium a huge underdog.

Iceland is a good soccer team, but beating the United States doesn’t seem possible. Team USA is an absolutely dominating squad. They can score 3 to 4 goals in the blink of an eye.

More importantly, the United States has the most advanced women’s soccer program in the world. As players leave the team, the U.S. reloads the way Nick Saban does at Alabama. So the United States must never rely on a single player. 

Iceland won’t win this match. But they don’t have to win this match to prove they belong. The United States couldn’t score a goal versus the Czech Republic in a 0-0 draw. Iceland may hang back, yield possession to the U.S., and force the United States to take bad shots.

If Iceland’s strategy works, they won’t beat Team USA, but they could force a draw. Once odds come out, consider backing the draw.
