USA vs Oman odds

The United States head into this latest friendly looking to protect their 12-game unbeaten run across all competitions, when excluding extra time and penalties. Most recently, the Stars and Stripes beat Uzbekistan 3-0 in St. Louis thanks to an early goal from Timothy Weah and strikes in second-half stoppage time from Ricardo Pepi and Christian Pulisic to see off a stubborn opponent.

Oman are one place higher than Uzbekistan in the FIFA World Rankings, sitting 73rd at present, so the USMNT should expect a similar challenge in Minnesota. Oman haven’t played a game since losing 3-2 to Iraq in the Gulf Cup final back in January, but were five games unbeaten prior to that, and only lost 1-0 to a strong Germany side as recently as November 2022.

Draw/USA @ 3/1 with Bet UK

Though they’ve been in strong form, the United States have definitely had their first-half struggles in recent matches. Gregg Berhalter’s side have scored eight of their last 12 goals in either the second half of matches or in extra-time, including two late goals to bulk up the scoreline against Uzbekistan.

USA to win, BTTS and Ricardo Pepi to score anytime

Although the USMNT have their flaws, they’re still a vastly superior outfit to Oman and remain in pretty strong form. This game will be a tougher challenge than it looks on paper but they’ll come through it, especially with the firepower the Americans have at their disposal — including the aforementioned Pepi, who has five goals in his last five caps.

Gregg Berhalter is likely to heavily rotate from the victory against Uzbekistan, offering plenty of minutes to players across the board as he seeks to test out some inexperienced players and keep others sharp.

As for Oman, this game is their first since January and, so, will be seen as a clean slate for many players.
