The United States Men's National Team look to follow up a huge victory by clinching a semifinal spot when they take on El Salvador in the Concacaf Nations League on Monday. The Americans (2-1-0) demolished Grenada 7-1 in their Friday night meeting, but they could be tested Monday. El Salvador (1-2-0) held the Americans to a 1-1 draw last June, the most recent competitive match for the Salvadorans. The USMNT defeated Mexico 3-2 to win the inaugural Concacaf Nations League in June 2021. They sit atop the group and will win it with a victory or draw.
Monday's kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Fla. The USMNT are -675 favorites (risk $675 to win $100) in the latest USMNT vs. El Salvador odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while El Salvador are +1750 underdogs.

Ricardo Pepi scored twice, including the opener just four minutes in. Weston McKennie also had two goals, with Brendan Aaronson and Alejandro Zendejas also getting on the board. The USMNT had a 19-12 advantage in shots, 12-3 in attempts on target.
The expert is also aware that El Salvador hung tough in the last meeting, taking the lead in the first half before allowing the equalizer in second-half injury time.
