FIFA Women’s World Cup

United States vs. Vietnam

Vietnam should be in some trouble. The Vietnamese are on a 6-match winning streak, and it hasn’t been close. Australia dusted Vietnam 11-0. Spain beat Vietnam 9-0 in the Vietnamese’s last.

Who cares if the games were friendlies? Losing by 11 goals and then 9 goals is a bad sign. The United States has geared up nicely for another World Cup run. The U.S. won the She Believes Cup and then beat the Republic of Ireland twice and Wales in their warm-up for the WC. The U.S. covers.

Soccer Betting Pick: United States -6.25

England vs. Haiti

Saturday’s most intriguing FIFA Women’s World Cup match pits England against Haiti. The island nation has played well in recent matches, beating Senegal and Chile in February and getting by Moldova in April.

England won the 2022 UEFA Women’s EURO Championship. Late last year, England beat the U.S. in a friendly. So we shouldn’t read too much into the draw versus Portugal and the loss to Italy. England rolls.

Soccer Betting Pick: England -4 -127

Netherlands vs. Portugal

Portugal is playing decent enough soccer to warrant a look. This is especially true if you like the handicap where the Portuguese get 1.25 goals.

The Netherlands has won 3-of-4 with the lone loss happening in a 1-0 contest versus Germany. The Dutch beat Poland 4-1 and Belgium 5-0 in their last couple of matches. Lay the goals.

Soccer Betting Pick: Netherlands -1.25 -104

Leagues Cup

Cruz Azul vs. Inter Miami CF

Neither squad will step onto the pitch playing their best soccer. Cruz Azul has lost 4 straight in the Mexican Liga. Two of the losses were by multiple goals, Atlas and Toluca.

Inter Miami shows 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 5. The house that Lionel hopes to build drew with Columbus, D.C., and Austin. No doubt, money will go to Inter M because of Messi’s presence. Messi will be the best player, by far, on either side of the pitch and Azul is in bad form. So we can’t argue.

Soccer Betting Pick: Inter Miami CF

CF Montreal vs. Pumas UNAM

  • When: Saturday, July 22, 2023

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

On July 15, Montreal beat Charlotte 2-0. Before the victory, Montreal had lost 4 straight, including falling 3-0 on July 12 in a matchup versus Chicago.

Pumas has just 1 loss in their last 5. Pumas also has a single victory in their last 5. The match is in Montreal. So the Canadians have an edge, but Pumas is the better team. Go with UNAM.

Soccer Betting Pick: Pumas UNAM

New York City FC vs. Atlas

  • When: Sunday, July 23, 2023

  • Soccer Odds: TBA

NYFC has home pitch advantage but we’ve got the feeling this in a draw. New York City has drawn in 3-of-5.

Atlas drew in their last. NYFC won’t know their opponent well. So the likely favorite projects to play a conservative match.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw
