Online betting players are always on the hunt for upsets, and the World Cup is no exception.

The Storyline

This will be the first-ever meeting for these Group C opponents, and the Americans’ athleticism gives them a big edge over the Algerians.

Who Has The Edge On Offense: USA Algeria Betting

Now that Jozy Altidore’s ankle is feeling better, the Americans have a solid group of attackers in Altidore, Landon Donovan, Michael Bradley and Edson Buddle, and Buddle’s height in particular may be the best way to go out about dispatching of Algeria. Buddle is a great target man, which allows the likes of Donovan, Altidore and Clint Dempsey to run off of him.

Algeria’s big goal threat is Rafik Saifi, who plays in France, and he’s looking to end his World Cup career on a high. Saifi hasn’t made an announcement yet, but given that he’s 35 yards old, it’s likely that this is his last international appearance for Algeria. Karim Ziani must press forward from midfield to support Saifi.

Edge: USA

Who Has The Edge In Defense: USA Algeria Betting

The American defense is experienced and they play all over Europe, so they’re used to playing opponents who are much better than Algeria. Captain Carlos Bocanegra and Oguchi Onyewu will be the keys in the middle of the defense in front of keeper Tim Howard, but the Americans don’t really have a player who fulfills the “shield” role in midfield.

Algeria’s defense will be put to the test by the athletic and speedy Americans, and the focus may be on Medhi Lacen to stop the attacks in midfield in front of the defense. Captain Yazid Mansouri was dropped from the team because of poor form, but that’s a risky move to make on the eve of the World Cup. Lounes Gaouaoui is the No.1 keeper, but it won’t matter unless Nadir Belhadj and Antar Yahia have the tournament of their lives.

Edge: USA

Notable Injuries – USA Algeria Betting

Other than Altidore’s ankle, the Americans are in good shape when it comes to injury.

Is Mansouri injured? There has to be a reason that manager Rabah Saadane dropped his captain. The poor form could be down to an undisclosed injury/

Edge: USA

Totals – USA Algeria Betting

Given the Americans’ attacking prowess and their willingness to go forward, it could be a long day for the Algerian defense. Offensively, the Algerians will be hoping to catch one on the counterattack.

Pick: Over 2.5

USA Algeria Betting Prediction & Outlook

The Americans will be favored in their first meeting with the Algerians, and barring a large sports betting upset, there’s no reason to think the Algerians can sneak away with a win, or even a draw. The Americans are improved technically, and they can play at pace, which could wear the Algerians out. Algeria will probably defend as long as they can and attempt to hit on the counterattack, but the United States will eventually win out.
