World Cup: USA v Wales 16/1 Bet Builder - Monday 7pm Kick Off


The wait for the Welsh national side is almost over. Will 64 years of pent-up emotion work for or against them?

With Group B being shaped as it is, the meeting between the USA and Wales is largely going to define who qualifies for the Round of 16.

We’ve got a 16/1 bet builder for the game, featuring three legs below.

Off The Mark Or Go All Out

When it comes to World Cup activity, the last thing anyone wants is a defeat in their opening encounter and with five points sometimes being enough to make the Round of 16, a draw is certainly not considered a bad start to proceedings.

However, such a return may do neither the USA or Wales any favours on Monday and if we assume that England are going to top Group B – even if that assumption is right or wrong, one point may have to be converted to three instead.

Which offers an interesting conundrum to both Gregg Berhalter and Robert Page in the opposing technical areas.

Do you look to simply open your World Cup account with a draw or do you attempt to the roll the dice instead?

Go for the jugular and you may end up with your own neck being split. That is the dilemma both managers will face and if the see-saw between pragmatism and all-out attack is off kilter, hopes of progress may then take a serious dent.

While this conundrum should make for a fascinating spectacle and although supporters of the two nations will be too tense to really enjoy this meeting, neutrals will be looking forward to two evenly matched nations going toe to toe.

In the white corner you have Christian Pulisic and his talents as Captain America. In the red corner you have Gareth Bale and someone who has recently conquered America – or at least helped Los Angeles FC win the 2022 MLS Cup.

Both players have the weight of a nation on their back, both players have struggled to get minutes. Both players can do incredible things on the international stage when it really matters and although these two sides are far from one-man teams, the focus will certainly be on this pair.

If Pulisic brings his Captain America outfit to Qatar, it will spell bad news for the Welsh. If big time Bale puts any nagging injury doubts to one side, then it will spell bad news for the United States Men’s National Team.

In my opinion there is little difference between the two sides and the draw is also the basis for my bet builder:

  • Result – draw
  • Under 2.5 goals
  • Gareth Bale to score anytime

With both teams looking to feel each other out, I believe they will cancel each other out in the process. While because it could be a rather cagey affair, I have opted for under 2.5 goals in total – and one of those will come from Gareth Bale.

A bet builder that seems rather logical in my opinion and one that is currently at 16/1 – a fantastic price to get Monday’s World Cup action in full swing.
