It’s only been a few days since the wild finish to the United States last game against Portugal. After turning an early deficit into a one-goal lead, the U.S. was just seconds from advancing into the Round of 16.
And then Cristiano Ronaldo made the only play he made all game long, setting a perfect cross for a header into the net.
The result was 2-2.
Prior to the game, the United States would have likely taken that result, but the way the game ended it felt more like a loss than a tie. The U.S. still managed to get one point and are currently tied atop the Group with Germany as they prepare to play them on Thursday.
If the U.S. and Germany tie on Thursday, then both would advance into the single elimination portion of the tournament. This has led to some speculation of collusion, where the two teams could just play for a draw. But if you ask either team, they are out to win this game, win the group, and get an easier opponent in the Round of 16.
The United States have certainly surprised the world at the 2014 World Cup, winning four points through two games and looking very solid in the process. The match against Germany will be another measuring stick, with the opportunity to win the ‘Group of Death’.
To win the game against Germany, the U.S. will have to pull off the upset. 2014 World Cup betting lines found at Bovada Sportsbook have installed Germany as slight favorites with the line at a half-goal. But the payout differential is staggering. The U.S. is paying out 7/1 at this line, because to cover they would need to win the game outright. A wager on Germany is installed at -150 ($1.50 wins $1). The payout on the draw is slated at 2 to 1.
There are a number of alternate betting lines for USA vs. Germany as well available at Bovada. These lines range up to Germany being favored by 1.5 goals.
At the very least, a nation not known for being soccer fans has been captivated by their national team. The U.S. game against Portugal had the second-highest rating for a sports event this year, exceeding such events like the BCS Championship, the World Series, and the NBA Finals.
With even more on the line against Germany, you have to think that it will be through the roof.
