2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final Odds, Preview & Expert Pick

Why Bet on USA?

The heavily-favored United States Women’s National Team enters Sunday’s finale looking for it’s fourth World Cup title, and second in a row. Team USA has won all six of it’s World Cup matches, outscoring their opponents 24-3.

The United States has gone through one of the toughest stretches of opponents that it has ever gone through. With victories over France and England, the United States defeated the host country and a top-three opponent. Now they will be facing the defending European champions.

The soccer world was stunned on Tuesday when one of Team USA’s biggest superstars, Megan Rapinoe, didn’t play due to a hamstring injury. Her status for Sunday’s championship game is unknown at this time. With the uncertainty of Rapinoe’s status for Sunday, the US will be looking to lean heavily on Alex Morgan.

Morgan has had a great career. She’s won a World Cup, Olympic gold medal, and a Champions League winner. She has 107 career goals for Team USA, including six in this year’s World Cup. With the six goals, she could be in line to win the Golden Boot. With a great showing in Sunday’s match, she could win another World Cup, the Golden Boot, and also solidify herself as one of the best women’s soccer players ever.

Why Bet on Netherlands?

As for the Netherlands, they also won all six of their World Cup matches. In doing so, they outscored their opponents 10-4. They haven’t played well offensively, but they have been saved by a very stingy defensive unit. With victories over a tough Canadian team, and an upstart team from Italy, and a tough Swedish unit, they have had a very tough run.

Sherida Spitse has been the most pivotal player for the Netherlands. She has been a creator for the Dutch and has assisted on four goals. She hasn’t played as well as many thought she would, so she’ll be looking to prove her critics wrong on Sunday.

Another player that the Netherlands will need to step up on Sunday is midfielder Danielle van de Donk. She is a playmaker for the Netherlands, and they will need her to help create scoring opportunities against a tough United States defense.

Expert Final Analysis & Prediction

These two countries have only met twice in their history, with the last one being in 2016. Both were friendly matches, and both matches were won by the United States. Both matches finished with 3-1 scores.

Neither team has played up to their capabilities thus far in the World Cup. With that being said, both teams still enter the championship match undefeated in the World Cup. These two teams are the top two attacking teams in the tournament, and both have very good defensive units.

The United States and the Netherlands will have the soccer world on the edge of their seats on Sunday. With their attacking styles and the uncertainty of who will/won’t play, there is a lot of drama surrounding this championship matchup. Will the heavily favored Team USA do what everyone thinks they will do, or will the Netherlands come up with one of the biggest upsets in Women’s World Cup history? Sunday can’t get here soon enough for soccer’s biggest prize.
