USA vs. Serbia Betting Tips
The United States will host Serbia for a friendly on Sunday in what’s a debut for their manager Bruce Arena. They will now want to return to the winning ways with a strong display and we expect them to lock the win backed with a banker bet at 11/20 with BetVictor
The match will come at the end of the annual January camp for the MNT and as the first of the two friendlies ahead of the March World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Panama. USA have suffered two losses (1-2 to Mexico and 4-0 to Costa Rica) in their first two World Cup qualifiers and sit at the bottom of the CONCAF qualifications table, so they’ll be desperate to return to the winning ways with the back-in-charge manager.
Serbia, on the other hand, have had a more successful start of the World Cup qualifiers and, with eight points earned in four matches, they currently stand 2nd in European qualifications group D and just two points behind 1st placed Wales. However, they are not travelling with star players on board and it’s very hard seeing them cause an upset here!
However, both teams do enjoy playing attacking football and we do expect to see an exciting matchup on the day so we’ll go for Over 2.5 goals FT here at Evens with William Hill
! Youngsters will want to challenge for places in the first team under Slavoljub Muslin, and the United States certainly have the quality up front to bag goals through an in-form Jozy Altidore (backed to score anytime at 13/10 with bet365
) and Jordan Morris (backed to net a goal anytime at 6/4 with the same bookie).
USA vs. Serbia Stats
Interestingly, United States haven’t met Serbia in the recent history. However, Serbia are recognized as successor to Yugoslavia whom USA team had met twice – suffering a thrashing 6-0 loss back in 1956 and a more narrow 1-0 loss in World Cup group stage in 1998.
We do believe we’re in for another quality match here and we’ll go for a 2-1 win for the USA here, backing the correct score prediction at a good-looking 8/1 with Ladbrokes
