Anticipation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup is building in the United States.

The USMNT roster is set, and the squad is traveling across the world to Qatar for the tournament. Gregg Berhalter’s team is set to play Wales in its opener on Nov. 21.

Before the World Cup begins, let’s take a look at the odds that the American team is facing.

What are the USMNT’s odds of advancing from Group B? Who is projected to lead the team in goals? Here’s all the betting odds for the USMNT at the 2022 World Cup, courtesy of our partner PointsBet:

Which American will score the most goals at the World Cup?

When will the USMNT be eliminated from the World Cup?

Thanks to PointsBet, you can also bet on when (or if) the United States will be eliminated from the World Cup. Here are the odds for which exact point the USMNT will get bounced:

  • Group stage, -118

  • Last 16, +225

How many goals will the USMNT score at the World Cup?

If you’re into extremely specific betting, this is the category for you. With this prop, you can predict exactly how many goals the American team will score throughout the World Cup. The USMNT is guaranteed to play three games in the group stage, but nothing is for certain after that. They could play a maximum of seven games if they reach the semi-final (which ensures they’ll play in the final or third-place game).
