U.S.A. vs. Ghana Free Pick
BRAZIL (The Spread) – The United States needs a win on Monday against Ghana if it is going to reach the second round of the World Cup. Will the Americans get the win?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, this game is even, as each team has been given a money line of +160 to win the match. The odds for a draw has been set at +250, while the over/under for goals has been set at 2 goals.
The United State has played in a total of 29 World Cup matches in its history, going just 7-17-5 in those games. They have allowed 56 goals while scoring just 32. Ghana has only appeared in nine World Cup matches, going 4-3-2. It has scored nine goals while allowing 10 over the nine contests.
WORLD CUP FREE PICK: This match should be very intense, as both teams know getting a win is crucial to their hopes of surviving in a very difficult Group G. Ghana has been strong in its few World Cup appearances, but it is hard to say if those are anomalies, or signs of a country that will compete in the World Cup regularly. The United States has shown signs over improvement on the global stage, but took a step toward really advancing by hiring Jurgen Klinsmann as coach. Klinsmann has led Germany to greatness in the past and he knows what it will take to get the U.S. to the next level. I think his coaching will be the key in this game and get the United States past Ghana in Monday’s opener.
WORLD CUP FREE PICK: UNITED STATES +160
