Iran Vs USA
It's was also possible that goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand, who took the brunt of a brutal collision in the opener against England and came off with a concussion, could be back for this match. Indeed he comes back in, starting just a week after that awful crash. Backup Hossein Hosseini started the Wales match and earned a clean sheet, making three saves, but he returns to a reserve role.
Iran vs USA
Mehdi Taremi ($30) is the only max-price player on the slate but with +300 goal-scoring odds, it's hard to take the plunge on him, especially with just one total set-piece across each of the opening two matches. That said, Taremi will pile the shots on if he's given the chance to get forward, perhaps by an early American goal. Sardar Azmoun ($23) has the same goal-scoring odds and comes at a major discount compared to Taremi, making him my preferred target for Iranian goals. Alireza Beiranvand ($15) or Hossein Hosseini ($18) would both be interesting plays depending on who starts. With the United States chasing a win it's possible they pile the shots on goal from distance, especially if they get desperate in the closing stages of the match. Matt Turner ($19) is a similarly interesting play for the Superstar position, though he only has 37 percent clean sheet odds. 041b061a72
