Netherlands Vs. Sweden: Women’s World Cup 2019 – Expert Picks And Betting Odds
Netherlands Vs. Sweden Women’s World Cup Preview
Two years ago the Netherlands surprised everybody and became the Europeans Champs by destroying any opponent in their way. Now the Oranges are one win away from getting to their first ever Women’s World Cup Final. Sweden, however, might have something to say during their semifinal meeting. There were a lot of bigger names than the Netherlands to reach a semifinal and a possible final during this tournament. Yet, the Orange team is talented to enough to be here, get to the final and win it. It just happens that because they are not a household name in Women’s soccer, people have some doubts.
Netherlands Vs. Sweden Betting Odds
|+121 (Draw +212)||Moneyline||+225 (Draw +212)|
|-0.5 (-113)||Spread||+0.5 (-116)|
|Over 2.5 goals (-108)||Game Total||Under 2.5 goals (-121)|
The Dutch are listed +121 to win this game in the money line according to MyBookie.ag. Those odds make the Netherlands in this matchup with a 45% implied probability of winning. What they have going their way is they basically have the same Team that won the European championship in 2017. Their performance in the tournament has been good and solid but not great. Perhaps, their best game was against Italy in the quarterfinals, especially in the second half. They simply overwhelmed the Italians with speed and pressure.
What is fun about the Dutch Team is they are an attacking side no matter what they have in front. It’s hard to beat them, mostly because their style put any opponent on their heels. They have three playmakers up front that are tough to handle, but perhaps none better than Vivianne Miedema. If you can find odds on Miedema winning the Best Player of the Tournament award, then you need to add some money on her. Other than USA’s Megan Rapinoe, Vivianne has been the most unstoppable player in the World Cup. The Dutch are listed +500 to win the competition with a 17% implied probability.
There is a lot of value going their way, considering they will meet either Team USA or England in the final. Avoiding one of those teams in the semifinal sure helps their cause. Not many are talking about the well-coached and very discipline Swedish team. Out of the four nations’ left in the World Cup, they are the longest shot at +600 with a 14% implied probability of collecting this bet. Sweden took down one of the tournament’s favorites in the quarterfinals by beating Germany 2-1.
Beyond the result itself, the most impressive thing about it was the Swedish were down one score early and didn’t panic. The team kept paying their game and following the plan to turn things around. This matchup against the Netherlands is a favorable one for Sweden and their counterattacking style. The Dutch will be the attacking side most of the time, but that should leave spaces open for the Swedish to counter with speed.
The only thing that worries me about Sweden is how their defense will handle the Dutch’s playmakers. During their group stage against the United States, the Swedish defense had serious problems stopping the Americans’ best players. They gave up their only loss of the tournament to the United States. I’m taking the Netherlands to advance in a very close game. Their slick attack will be something too tough to handle for Sweden in the end.
