It's been eight years since the US Men's National Team appeared in the World Cup, and in that time sports wagering has enjoyed widespread legalization in more than half of US states.

On Caesars Sportsbook, the moneyline last paid +145 for a US win (risk $100 to win $145), +210 for a Wales victory, and +200 for a draw.
