Why Morocco is a good bet versus USA
The underdog in this has played as well as the United States. If you’re a soccer bettor that emphasizes the last match, then, no doubt, Morocco is playable. The Moroccans dusted Congo DR 4-1. The match wasn’t close. Also, Morocco should start their top players while Team USA may go with their second team in this match.

Why USA is a good bet versus Morocco
Even if the United States starts their second team, they should take it to the Moroccans. Team USA has a much deeper bench. Not only that, but the United States will be playing in front of their fans. So we should expect the U.S. to give it their all no matter which players step onto the pitch.

Final Betting Analysis: Morocco vs. USA
It’s tough to handicap friendly matches. It’s especially tough to handicap this friendly because the United States, no doubt, is the better team.
But although the United States is loaded compared to Morocco, Team USA didn’t play well in their last match. For whatever reason, the U.S. was lethargic and unmotivated versus Costa Rica.
Los Ticos is a CONCACAF rival. The two teams know each other well. So if the United States couldn’t get up for a match versus Costa Rica, how hard will they play against Morocco?
If the United States puts forth their best foot, they can beat the Moroccans by 2 or more goals. But if the U.S. plays the same match they did against Costa Rica, Morocco can grab the victory.
The odds on Morocco to win are more than fair. The draw is the better play, though. Neither will go all out to to get a goal and the United States may not even play their top starters. The draw is the play.
