The United States and El Salvador face off on Monday in a Group D CONCACAF Nations League at Exploria Stadium. When these two teams faced off in June 2022, the two teams played to a 1-1 draw. 

United States vs El Salvador Odds

United States is the favorite sitting at -800 while El Salvador sits as the underdog sitting at +1200. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals, with the over paying out at -180. 

United States Betting Preview

The USA currently sits atop the group, having picked up seven points in three matches. They currently have two wins and one draw. On Friday, the United States off against Grenada, and they were able to secure a 7-1 victory. Ricardo Pepi opened up the scoring in the 4th minute, and they never looked back on the way to the victory. Pepi and Weston McKennie both scored two goals. McKennie’s two goals came in the 31st and 34th minutes. The United States had 69 percent of the possession and 12 shots on target. 

El Salvador Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is El Salvador, who sits in second place in the group having picked up five points. Last Wednesday against Honduras, the defense wasn’t awful, giving up only one goal, but the offense couldn’t get anything going, and that led to the 1-0 defeat. The only goal scored in the game was an own goal, and they can’t have a lot of confidence heading into this game. The big problem for this El Salvador squad is they are inconsistent. Getting a draw against the United States last year was good, but now the last game, they really looked bad. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The United States offense has a ton of confidence heading into this game, and they are going to continue the success here. There isn’t really a lot of value taking them because of the payouts, but there is going to be enough scoring for this game to be higher scoring. Look for the United States to score at least three goals here, and that is going to be the difference, as this game is going to go over the total. Back the over 2.5 goals.
