The USMNT play their first CONCACAF Nations League match tonight against Cuba.

(Read: What is the CONCACAF Nations League)

They’ll go into the match as massive favorites. This is a tough spots for coach Gregg Berhalter. Win big, and they’ll say, “well, you’re supposed to smash Cuba.” Win unconvincingly (or worse), and it’s more of, “your system isn’t working and stop playing Zardes and Trapp.”

USMNT vs Cuba Match Odds

The USMNT is -5000 to beat Cuba. If you’re new to betting on soccer, that means you’d need to put $5000 down to win $100. A draw is +1200. Cuba are +2500 to win (so a $100 bet wins you $2500).

Cuba is on a downswing in terms of quality. They’ve plummeted to #178 in FIFA’s global rankings. The US is #21, which is actually the highest they’ve been since 2013.

USMNT Projected Starting XI vs Cuba

Berhalter has actually already said that Josh Sargent will get the starting nod up top. Berhalter probably knows he needs a good win here to build momentum. He’s had more success deploying a 4-3-3. Expect a starting XI along these lines:

Goalkeeper: Zack Steffen

Defense:  DeAndre Yedlin, Aaron Long, Matt Miazga, Tim Ream

Midfield: Christian Pulisic, Michael Bradley, Weston McKennie

Forward: Tyler Boyd, Josh Sargent, Jordan Morris
