United States (-4.5): (+102)
• Unsurprisingly, the US like to start strong, and have now opened the scoring inside the first 15 minutes of play in four of their last six wins. However, they have not scored multiple goals inside the opening quarter-hour of any match since a World Cup (WC) qualifier in October 2018.
• On current evidence, Chile will do well to avoid Thailand’s fate, having returned a record of D2, L7 from their last nine games against FIFA-recognised nations. A 7-0 defeat to the Netherlands (April 2019) precedes a run of: D1, L2, where both losses saw Chile lose one half 2-0, with no goals at all in the other.
• Even though the odds are stacked against Chile, any matches involving them where both teams score have the potential to keep us in suspense early on. Of their last five matches to produce goals both ways, all have seen the first two match goals shared.
