Bukayo Saka To Have 1+ Shots on Target

Stated in our World Cup preview of England that Bukayo Saka has to start and we saw why with his performance against Iran. He is so good at cutting in from the right hand side on to his left foot and will get plenty of opportunity to do that against Antonee Robinson.

For the first leg of this Bet Builder we’re hoping that he can do the same at least once and get a shot on target.

Tyler Adams to be shown a card and Weston McKennie to commit 1 or more fouls

For the next two legs we will look at the USA midfield duo of Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie. Both were extremely hard-working, all action against Wales. This hyperactivity could translate into cards and fouls as they try to disrupt England.

The reason I go specifically with this combination is Weston McKennie to commit one or more fouls as opposed to being booked is he is already on a yellow card and should be a little bit more careful than Tyler Adams who is not on yellow card.

Over 2.5 Goals

Based on what we saw from the opening games I think there is bit of value in this and worth adding as a leg to any Bet Builder. USA gave up chances in second half against Wales and expect England with better attacking options to carry more of a threat and convert that to goals.

England also allowed Iran to score twice (although one was a penalty). The first goal showed that England can give you a bit of a sniff and that was all Mehdi Taremi needed. Christian Pulisic and Timothy Weah have similar quality to take a chance if comes there way, and maybe even Josh Sargent could too (though Norwich fans might think differently!).

At current prices, Over 2.5 goals a solid leg and rounds out this bet well.
