The USMNT is still trying to rebound from its failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, and so far, qualifying for the 2022 World Cup hasn’t gone as smoothly as you would want. 

In three games, the United States has five points coming from a draw with El Salvador, a draw with Canada and a win against Honduras. Tomorrow, the USMNT faces off against Jamaica, who is currently in last place in the CONCACAF table with one point. 

These two countries faced off against each other in the Gold Cup earlier this year, with the United States winning 1-0

The Americans need to replicate that result in order to create separation at the top of the table. Canada and Panama are also tied with the United States with five points. The top three countries in CONCACAF after the World Cup qualifying period is over will automatically win a bid to Qatar. 

WynnBET currently has the USMNT as giant favorites going into the match. The U.S. is -300 on the three-way moneyline, with Jamaica sitting at +900 and a draw at +410. The United States is expected to get points on Thursday, which will be crucial before it faces Panama directly after. 

Getting back to the World Cup has been on the Americans’ minds for the last four years and Thursday will be another opportunity to take a step closer to that goal.
