Women's World Cup Betting Odds: US Favored Big Over Columbia
The US women's soccer team has had much more success over the years than the men's team from the country. Later today, the women's team will take to the pitch for their second game in Group C pool play, and they will do so as heavy betting favorites.
Soccer is a game that has many times been mired in scandal when it comes to betting and match fixing, and it is games such as the one today between the US and Columbia that have drawn the attention of regulators over the years. Barring injury, odds makers are not giving the Columbian team much chance of pulling the upset.
The USA is a -1250 choice on the money line for the game. Columbia returns odds of +1650. If Columbia should pull the upset, any gambler who wanders in to a Las Vegas sports book and puts money on Columbia would win 16.5 times their bet. On the flip side, the US team would cost bettors 12.5 times their bet if they should lose.
In World Cup pool play, there is always the possibility of a draw. In this match, a draw conclusion would return gamblers almost seven times their money should that be the bet on outcome. The total for the match is three goals, with those playing the over three receiving odds of -110, and bettors choosing the under will be -130.
In the other game of the day, Sweden and North Korea will face off, with Sweden being a slight favorite at even money. North Korea has odds of +190, and the draw bet has odds of +200. The US and Sweden could both move into the next round with wins.
