The 2022 FIFA World Cup keeps rolling with more action slated for Tuesday, Nov. 29. One of the more interesting matches of the day is a Group B collision between USA and Iran.
The United States earned a hard-fought point against England on Friday, drawing 0-0 against a talented club. Iran, meanwhile, upset Wales 2-0. That victory opens the door for USA to advance to the Round of 16 if the men's team gets a win against Iran.

USA vs Iran Prediction & Pick
USA showed its resilience on Friday. Facing an England team that's more talented on paper and was expected to win, USMNT didn't waver one bit, quieting a potent Three Lions attack. USA's defensive strength has been on full display throughout the World Cup, conceding just one goal (a penalty) in two matches.
Iran, meanwhile, was stomped 6-2 by England in its first WC match. They responded by beating Wales 2-0 on Friday. The Iran team has some offensive juice, but the Americans' performance against England demonstrated that they can slow down anybody. With a trip to the next stage on the line, I think USA gets it done against a rival.
Final Score Prediction: USA: 1 | Iran: 0

USA vs Iran Best Bet
USA has to be aggressive in this contest since a draw won't advance them to the next round. Gregg Berhalter will want his best attackers on the pitch from the jump in order to secure a lead before pulling back to protect their chance at advancing. USMNT got the scoring started against Wales in their first game, and I expect that to be the case here again given how badly they need a win.
Bet: USA to Score the First Goal (-170)
