USA vs Vietnam Women’s World Cup Betting Pick and Prediction
For this 2023 Women’s World Cup match, the U.S. is defending their 2015 and 2019 World Cup title. Furthermore, they will try to make history by attempting to be the first to claim 3 consecutive World Cup trophies. And that is not just for the Women’s World Cup but also the Men’s World Cup!
The U.S. roster is made up of world class talent that include Alex Morgan, Julie Ertz and Crystal Dunn. Furthermore, Kelley O’Hara is also back on the team and Megan Rapinoe will be playing in her last World Cup.
There is a slight possibility that the Americans will let a goal thru. This is because defender and captain Becky Sauerbrunn will be missing due to an injury
On the other hand, we have the Vietnamese National Women’s squad who is making their first Women’s World Cup appearance. Needless to say, this is a true David versus Goliath story but can Vietnam prevail?
On the Vietnamese squad, all but one of their players play in the Professional League of Vietnam. We are talking about Nuynh Nhu who is the first Vietnamese woman to sign a contract with a European club. The 31-year-old woman currently plays for Länk FC Vilaverdense in the Portuguese league. In addition, she has made the most international goals for Vietnam with 71 and will be their key player.
According to sports wagering experts, their main weakness will be their backline against a powerful team like the U.S.

Game time: 07/21/2023 at 9:00 PM EDT
Bet on the Over 6.5
Vietnam has already had 2 defeats where they lost by 7 points or more in the pass. The first was losing 9-0 against Spain last week and losing 7-0 to France last summer.
The USA team is an overwhelming favorite and will easily win the match. However, the trick is figuring out by how much they will win by which will dictate the wager to make. Despite having 3 newcomers to the team, their squad is mostly made of veteran players. Therefore, we predict the USA team will win with a final score of 11-0.
