Costa Rica 1, Canada 1 (CRC advances on penalties)
Money line (ML)
The best play on the board is a DRAW (+195) after regular time, as I believe this match will be decided on penalties.
My lean is taking COSTA RICA (-125) as the team to advance to the next round, but it is going to be a super tight affair. I also like YES (-105): BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.
UNDER 2.5 (-175) is rather costly, but this will not be a match with end-to-end action. It's going to be tight with very few scoring chances, especially during the early going as these sides feel each other out.
Yes, Canada averaged 2.7 goals per match during group play, but it was blanked by the USA, as the only legitimate side it faced.
