I'm not sure why you think it is setup for the US to win?
There isn't an easy road for anyone to the finals.
I don't necessarily agree that it's set up for the US to win. But really Japan will be the only tough team that the US has to play to get to the finals, while on the other side The Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Cuba, and even Puerto Rico look to be strong.
