With an initial 3 streak winning the USA team remain the odds in favor to win the qualification according to Sports Betting Dime.

In this competition, the United States have been invincible winning all the four matches that they have played so far. They have defeated Brazil twice, Canada once and Argentina once. They will play their remaining two matches against Canada (on October 24, 8.30pm IST) and Argentina (October 26, 12.30am IST).

Apart from the United States, Brazil and Canada have an outside chance of topping the table. If either of the teams is able to win both their remaining matches, then they stand a strong chance of advancing to the global qualifiers.

Argentina, on the other hand, can be the party spoilers, as they practically have no chance of advancing to the global qualifiers.
