We’re now in the Round of 16 at the World Cup, which means the pressure is really on now. The United States, who just escaped group play, is matched up against the Netherlands – who won Group A.
They will kick off the knockout stage as the first match to be played. The Netherlands are heavy favorites at -240. However, let’s look at some props for the game, specifically who will score in this game.
Here are three picks for anytime goal scorers.
Best Anytime Goal Scorers for Netherland-United States
Memphis Depay (+450)
Depay hasn’t scored yet, but he is certainly getting his chances. With just one start in the group stage, Depay has six shot attempts and two on goal. He’s being extremely aggressive and getting attempts up. For a team that scored five goals in the group stage, the Netherlands had plenty of chances to raise that number – and Depay can be the one to set the tone in the group stage.
Vincent Janssen (+650)
Right now, we’re looking for players who are going to be active in the offense and Vincent Janssen fits that mold. He only started one game like Depay, but he’s still been active. In the group stage he had two shots and an assist. If the U.S. closes down on Depay, or gets tired towards the end of the match, Janssen can take advantage of a potentially wide open midfield and put one in the back of the net.
Timothy Weah (+1200)
Weah has already scored a goal at this World Cup and he has a good chance to do it again. In three starts, he has three shots and two shots on target. He’s going to be on the front line for the USMNT and deserves a little respect. We saw Iran double Christian Pulisc several times as he made runs into the box, leaving Weah open. The Netherlands may not double Pulisic every time, but he will have their attention. Weah will be the clear beneficiary of that.
