The USA were 3-0 up inside 36 minutes when they last faced Portugal in a World Cup match, back in 2002 and they look overpriced (4/1, Boylesports) to beat the same opponents again on Sunday.
The injury-hit Portuguese are Betfred’s 5/6 favourites, but are drifting in the betting following a 4-0 mauling at the hands of Germany and after the US dramatically accounted for Ghana last time out, they’ve attracted steady trade.
Stan James’s 23/10 marked against them ‘Draw No Bet’ certainly stands out and that price will look even better should Cristiano Ronaldo’s knee issue rule him out.
Bet365 meanwhile, make the Real Madrid man a skinny 5/2 to break the deadlock; odds that will be popular if he proves his fitness.
