The US Men’s National Team return to action in search of a victory after losing a friendly with Mexico in stunning fashion, and a well deserved draw against an Uruguay team that was missing some notable names. Now that the experimental phase for the USMNT is over, for now, the CONCACAF Nations League makes its way for the Men as the competition makes its splash into the United States of America, Yeet!

For informational purposes, the Nations League was designed for FIFA to reduce shitty international friendlies by pairing equally skilled nations into one group, Canada and Cuba are the teams to beat for the USMNT in Group A. Winner of the groups qualify for the Nations League Finals in the summer of 2021 becoming the ultimate CONCACAF Nations League champion, whatever that means. I guess this will become meaningful in the future? Not in my lifetime. But hey, another excuse to gamble on this October that is PACKED with footy fixtures.

This game is a chance for the USMNT to build up some confidence in their football play. Gregg Berhalter has the opportunity to solidify his football philosophy into his players because the USMNT is more than capable of thrashing Cuba with beautiful football goals, and not a Jordan Morris-Esque goal after heading in a ricochet clearance from an Uruguayan defender. Pulisic’s frustrations will also be showing on the pitch as his playing time for Chelsea is being diminished, allowing him to shine for the red, white, and blue as he always does.


This will be the first fixture in the Nations League for the USMNT. Group A opponents Canada and Cuba have played each other twice already with Canada winning both fixtures 6-0 and 0-1 earlier in September. A combination of hunger, a pissed off Pulisic, and a shitty shitty Cuba team is the recipe for a US victory. Josh Sargent is continuing to find starting minutes for a Werder Bremen team in a tightly contested Bundesliga table. Although Josh only has one goal scored in six Bundesliga matches, I’m sure the red hot ginger from Missouri is licking his lips to score a hattrick for his country.

There is no doubt in my mind we will be watching a goal fiesta in Washington D.C. However, the oddsmakers allocating the O/U at 6.5 goals is a gift from the gambling gods. Cuba is a very athletic team that can create something from nothing, which is something to look out for. After the first two to three goals the United States scores, the boys will be cocky and play the ball around the Cubans until a clear goal-scoring opportunity presents itself. Along with the lines, I also agree that the oddsmakers are smoking some kind of crack if they think the USMNT will score 7 goals. I mean the Under 6.5 is at -334. Unless the oddsmakers know something that we don’t and are looking to cash in from us idiots betting the Under. I’m onto you oddsmakers. I see what you are trying to do here. Bet the Over, it makes no sense but neither does life!
