Thursday afternoon at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta will see Panama square off against the tournament-hosting nation USA. These two CONCACAF foes have met 18 times since 2011 with the United States carrying the healthy lead in the head-to-head department winning on 11 occasions. The last time Panama defeated the States was back in 2021 during the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Panama is coming off a 3-1 defeat against Uruguay in their opening match in Miami. It was a match where Panama was fortunate that Uruguay failed to capitalize on the abundance of high-danger chances they produced. The lone goal for Los Canaleros happened in the last kick of the game as Micheal Murillo's shot found the top left corner in the 94th minute.

Meanwhile, for the USA they opened their 2024 Copa America campaign on a positive note defeating Bolivia 2-0. It didn’t take long for the Yanks to get the party started as Christian Pulisic scored a highlight reel goal in the third minute. Folarin Balogun made it 2-0 with his marker in the 44th minute ensuring the USMNT would collect all three points.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favorite picks for Panama vs. United States.

Panama vs. USA Betting Prediction

Panama Preview

Setting foot in this year's edition of the Copa America Los Canaleros currently sit 43rd overall in the FIFA rankings. In their 3-1 defeat, Panama got bullied in controlling the ball as they finished with 45 percent possession thanks to long spells of control by Uruguay. Panama were outshot 20 to 10, facing another dangerous opponent they can’t afford to give up that many chances.

The most in-form player representing his country is striker Jose Luis Rodriguez who plays his club soccer at Famalicao of the Primeira Liga, Portugal’s topflight league. The winger saw his two-game goal-scoring streak with his national side end on Sunday night in their 3-1 setback. Was also a rough night for Rodriguez on the pitch as he was forced to leave the match in the 84th due to injury, his timetable to return to action is unknown.

USA Preview

Without a doubt when listing the United States' best current crop of players, Christian Pulisic will be at the top of the list. Captain America exhibited why he’s the most dangerous player on this squad during their 2-0 victory over Bolivia. In 90 minutes of play, the AC Milan star collected a goal and an assist. He was able to generate four shots towards the goal with two reaching the target. Don’t be surprised if Pulisic puts on a similar performance against Panama adding to his goal contributions.

Though he didn’t hit the scorers sheet Ricardo Pepi made his presence felt on the pitch coming on as a second-half substitute. The 21-year-old managed to amass six shots with four reaching the net in 25 minutes of play. Pepi was always a threat with the ball on his feet, he will give Panama issues if Greg Berhalter decides to include him in the starting 11. In 26 international caps, Pepi has found the back of the net ten times.

Panama vs. USA - My Pick

Soccer matches aren’t won on paper but that said the United States at each position outclass Panama putting themselves in pole position to grab all three points in this affair. Based on the moneyline odds the Yanks just have a greater than 69 percent chance of winning, the question is can they cover the Asian Line?

The United States is one of the Copa America 2024 favorites to go deep in the competition, they need to impose their will on Panama to give them an advantage in the goal differential department leading into their final match against Uruguay. Currently, both the States and Uruguay have a +2-goal differential. The States saw the flurry of chances Panama gave up, if they can exploit on Panama’s mistakes the Yanks should win this encounter by more than a goal.
