Women’s Olympics betting tips: Canada eye USA scalp

Women’s Olympics betting tips and odds

Ellen White’s hat-trick proved in vain as Great Britain missed out on the chance of an Olympic medal with Friday’s 4-3 extra-time defeat by Australia who will take on Sweden in the second of Monday’s semi-finals.

United States have won the gold medal in four of the six women’s tournaments and are 11/10 favourites to add a fifth to their list of honours ahead of their clash with Canada.

The world champions are 4/6 to beat the Canadians but let’s examine some of the other markets and odds for both of Monday’s semi-finals in our women’s Olympics betting tips.

USA v Canada (Mon, 09:00)

Both teams squeezed into the last four courtesy of penalty shoot-outs on Friday, with Canada pulling through against Brazil before USA scored all their spot-kicks in their quarter-final clash with European champions Netherlands.

Despite being overwhelming favourites to win the tournament, it has not been plain sailing for USA who started their group campaign with a 3-0 defeat by Sweden and ended it with a goalless draw with Australia.

That said, they have an excellent recent record against Canada, winning the last three without conceding, the latest a 1-0 victory at the SheBelieves Cup less than six months ago.

USA are 13/8 to win to nil for a fourth successive time or 5/4 to reach the final with under 3.5 match goals which was the case in all three previous victories.

Canada have drawn three of their four matches at the tournament, so we go 27/10 on the game to finish all square at the end of 90 minutes and it’s 19/5 with goals in that outcome.

The Canadians scored the first goal in all three group games, including the 1-1 draw with Great Britain, and are priced at 2/1 to bag the opener and 17/4 to win the match in our women’s Olympics betting tips.

Australia v Sweden (Mon, 12:00)

Sweden, the silver medallists in Rio five years ago, are the only team to have won all four games and yet they are 7/4 second favourites to win gold.

The Swedes ended the hopes of hosts Japan in the quarter-finals with a 3-1 victory during which Stina Blackstenius scored her fourth goal of the tournament and having already beaten the Matildas in the group stage, it’s understandable they are 4/6 to reach the final once again.

However, they were trailing 2-1 in the early stages of the second half only for Lina Hurtig, Fridolina Rolfo and Blackstenius to score in a 4-2 victory.

Peter Gerhardsson’s side are 2/1 to win and both teams to score again or 13/10 to win and over 2.5 goals which has been the case in three of their four games.

The Aussies look very dangerous from crosses, though, scoring a couple of headers in the win against Great Britain and they are 3/1 to draw or 4/1 to win inside 90 minutes while Sweden are 15/2 to win from behind as they did more than a week ago.
