Both Teams to Score – No  

Almost all of the matches between Costa Rica and the USMNT ended with clean sheets in the past. Specifically, nine of the last ten head-to-head games they played. Also, for both teams, three of the last five qualifiers they played ended the same way. 

Match Result – United States to Win 

The USMNT and Costa Rica have already faced each other once this year, and just like in four of the last five head-to-head matches between them, the USA won the match. They also have more points in the current World Cup qualifiers table (two points ahead of Costa Rica), and are in second place, which will still get them a place in the World Cup. 

Total Goals – Under 2.5 Goals 

Almost all of the qualifiers in the group that Costa Rica and the United States played ended with fewer than 2.5 total goals scored. That includes four of the total five fixtures. Also, four of the last five times these two teams played together, the match ended with the same outcome (under 2.5 goals).
