Here are USMNT's odds of winning World Cup entering knockout stage originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The U.S. men's national team was one of 32 squads in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Now, the Americans will be one of 16.

The USMNT advanced to the knockout stage in Qatar with a 1-0 win over Iran. The Iran match was a win-or-go-home proposition for the U.S. and it will be faced with the same scenario when it takes on the Netherlands in the Round of 16.

Should the Americans get past the Dutch, they'll suddenly find themselves in the quarterfinals and just three wins away from winning the whole tournament.

So what are the odds of the USMNT hoisting the World Cup trophy at Lusail Stadium on Dec. 18?
