Total Goals – Over 2.5 Goals  

The only time that Japan and the USMNT have ever faced each other, the game ended with more than 2.5 total goals scored. Actually, four of the last five fixtures for Japan and some of the USMNT's latest games also ended similarly. We expect the Friday friendly to also end with more than 2.5 total goals scored. 

Match Result – Japan to Win 

The USA national team remains a very strong force at home, but away from home, they aren't all that perfect. With no wins in the last five games they played outside of the USA, we don't think they stand a chance against Japan's national team who remain unbeaten in 80% of the last ten games they played whether the match ended with a win or a tie.
