U.S. Soccer vs. Saudi Arabia Betting Tips, Picks & Predictions
After a poor display against Japan, the U.S. men’s national soccer team is looking to bounce back against offensively challenged Saudi Arabia.
The team's 2-0 loss ended a four-game unbeaten run. The U.S. men face the Saudis in their final scheduled game before World Cup action begins Nov. 21 with a match against Wales.
Here are our betting tips and predictions for the match.
A same-game parlay for our three picks is +1870 with FanDuel Sportsbook.
Both Teams Not to Score
The men's team has scored more than 2.5 goals in only four of its 11 matches in 2022 — but Saudi Arabia has fared far worse.
The Saudis have only two goals total this year, and they last scored multiple goals in a game in October 2021.
That's an appealing matchup for the U.S., which has shut out Mexico, Uruguay, Morocco, El Salvador and Grenada this year.
Both teams not to score is -122 with FanDuel Sportsbook.
USMNT to Win by 3 Goals
The loss to Japan is one of only three for the U.S. men this year; the others were to Costa Rica and Canada. Victories include a 5-0 blanking of Grenada, a 5-1 win over Panama and a 3-0 triumph over Honduras.
Saudi Arabia, by contrast, has won only two matches in 2022 — both 1-0, against Oman and Australia.
This should play right into the hands of the USMNT who is now desperate to get back in the win column ahead of its group encounters at the World Cup.
The U.S. men to win by two goals is +490 with FanDuel Sportsbook.
Jesus Ferreira to Score Anytime
Although Jesus Ferreira wasn't heard from in the loss to Japan, the FC Dallas star remains a threat. He's the highest-scoring American in Major League Soccer this year with 18 goals; only non-Americans Hany Mukhtar (Nashville), Sebastián Driussi (Austin) and Dániel Gazdag (Philadelphia) have outscored him.
Ferreira, 21, has scored five goals in nine games for the U.S. men. With Christian Pulisic missing the match against Saudi Arabia and Gio Reyna and Brendan Aaronson struggling offensively for the team, Ferreira could shoulder much of the goal-scoring responsibility.
Ferreira to score anytime against Saudi Arabia is +175 with FanDuel Sportsbook.
