The Women's World Cup got underway early Thursday morning for people in the United States. But it will truly get underway for Americans when the U.S. Women's National Team plays its first game against Vietnam on Friday night.

The United States, the favorite to win the tournament, are massive favorites to defeat Vietnam (-25000 at BetMGM).

Not many people will be interested in paying that price, but we found a different angle to bet without laying too much juice.

The bet is a sharp angle and it comes from the market report at BetMGM. It's a bet on an under.

United States vs. Vietnam Prediction, Projection

It would be one of the upsets of the century if Vietnam took down the Americans. Even a draw is currently +3300, and Vietnam would be ecstatic to come away with that result.

With that being said, betting the moneyline isn't interesting — and it appears sharps believe that as well.

The sharps are betting on the total goals, and they think it will be below 6.5.

Under 6.5 (-120) is currently getting 69% of the bets and accounts for 87% of the handle at BetMGM.

Shockingly, the over/under for U.S. goals is a worse price than the game total. United States to score fewer than 6.5 goals is -145 at BetMGM.

Pick:  Under 6.5 Goals (-120)
