Women’s World Cup 2019 Final: USA vs. Netherlands – Betting Odds And Expert Picks
USA vs. Netherlands Women’s World Cup Final Betting Preview
The United States women’s team is one win away from adding a fourth World Cup title to its resume. In front of them is the European Champs, Netherlands, who comes in perfect form to try to pull an upset for the ages.
The United States is a big time favorite for this final. They are even a bigger favorite now than in their previous matchups against France and England.
The reason is the Netherlands is not considered a powerhouse in women’s soccer, even though, they are the current European champions.
USA vs. Netherlands Betting Odds
|-277 (Draw +341)||Moneyline||+575 (Draw +341)|
|-1.5 (+106)||Spread||+1.5 (-158)|
|Over 2.5 goals (-123)||Game Total||Under 2.5 goals (-106)|
When the tournament started, team USA was a listed +300 to retain the title as World Cup champs. Behind them was France (+350), Germany (+550) and England (+650).
The Netherlands was fifth in the list at +1400. In fact, out of the first four favorites in the odds listed by MyBookie.ag, the United States eliminated two of them.
The Dutch didn’t face any of them, which tells you the Americans are more battle tested. Betting on the United States at the -277 odds in the money line has an implied probability of 73% of winning.
The Americans didn’t need extra time to beat any of their opponents. All of them (Spain, France, and England) were defeated by the same exact result of 2-1.
During their semifinals matchup against England, the captain, and winger, Megan Rapinoe, didn’t play due to a hamstring injury. The news of her absence was a shock to many because it was announced just minutes before the game.
Rapinoe said after the win against England that she expects to be fit to play in the final. It’s hard to think their best player will miss the last game of the tournament. Even if she’s not a 100% I expect the captain to start in the final.
The Netherlands is a team that feels comfortable playing as the underdogs. With that same label on them, they ended up winning the European championship two years ago.
They haven’t put together a great game during this World Cup, but even so, they have won all six contests it took them to get here.
In the semifinals against Sweden, they needed extra time to secure its first spot in a World Cup final. The Dutch have an attacking team with very talented players up front. When they have the ball, they will put the United States defense on their heels.
If you like the Dutch the money line bet on the win is listed at a juicy +575, with an implied probability of 15% of winning. There is always the handicap play at +1.5 with a price of -158.
It will take the Netherlands to lose by a two-goal margin to lose this bet. It looks like a little much considering they haven’t lost during the entire tournament. Also, a final game is usually a little closer than any other.
I do feel the Americans are a better overall team and have been tested in this World Cup. The scenario and the nerves could be easily controlled by team USA, and that worries me a little about the young Netherlands team. Take the Americans to win this game.
