Wales 1, Iran 1
Money Line (ML)
BET DRAW (+220).
Wales have the more talented squad but Iran should bounce back on defense after allowing England to equal their record for most goals in a FIFA World Cup match (6). I don’t like it when Iran wins, but a hard-fought, low-goal game should help Iran earn an important point in Group B.
BET UNDER 2.5 (-170).
After conceding 6 goals against England on Monday, Iran should tighten up defensively to avoid another embarrassing defeat. Although the USA are a tougher opponent than Iran, I expect this game to be low-scoring and very similar to Monday’s World Cup opener in Wales.
