Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Jason McIntyre:
The home nation has a massive uphill climb to get a win, but Ecuador might be their best chance. Unfortunately, Qatar isn’t really battle tested, leading up to the World Cup with games against vastly inferior teams.
Ecuador, the second-youngest team in the field (behind the USMNT), is a boom-bust team with some high-end talent in Gonzalo Plata and Michael Estrada.
If you think the big Senegal injury opens the door for Ecuador to sneak out of the Group, bet it now before they win the opener.
Pick: Ecuador (+130 moneyline at FOX Bet) to win outright
