Prediction

England 2, Germany 1

Money line (ML)

BET ENGLAND (+145).

England has looked unbeatable, and it thrashed a top-tier Swedish side. While Germany advanced, it wasn’t nearly as impressive in beating France.

The home side also has 5 of the tournament’s top-10 goal scorers, so the talent and pace should certainly be there.

Especially on corners, Germany was vulnerable against France. Considering England has 2 players who have 4 or more goals within the box, it should be able to convert at a higher rate.

With the crowd’s backing, expect England to come out on top.

Over/Under (O/U)

LEAN OVER 2.5 (+110).

Both teams were able to convert their opportunities in the semifinal round, both playing top-10 teams per FIFA rankings. Getting double-digit shots could be another reality in this final, and it should create some magic.

The talent is just going to be otherworldly with 7 of the tournament’s top-10 scores in action. Each side has scored at least 2 goals in 9 of the 10 combined games.

They’ve both been scoring machines, and that should keep up in this final.

2022 Women’s Euro semifinal: Germany vs. France odds, picks and predictions

Analyzing Wednesday’s Germany vs. France odds and lines, with 2022 Women’s Euro picks and predictions.

Germany welcomes France to Stadium mk in Buckinghamshire Wednesday for a 2022 Women’s Euro semifinal. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET (ESPN2/ESPN+). Below, we preview the Germany vs. France odds and lines, and make our best women’s soccer picks and predictions.

Germany won its group stage games by a combined 9-0. Its toughest challenge was Spain, a game they won 2-0.

Germany drew Austria in the first round of the knockout stage, winning 2-0 and totaling 20 shots. Germany sits No. 5 in the FIFA Women’s World Rankings.

France is ranked as the 3rd-best team in the world. It’s the highest-ranked team left as No. 8 England knocked out No. 2-ranked Sweden 4-0 in the other semifinal match.

France didn’t have an overly impressive group stage. They were 2-0-1, drawing Iceland. However, in the knockout stage, they took out the No. 4-ranked Netherlands. It had 13 shots on target to the Netherlands’ 1.

Prediction

France 2, Germany 1

Money line (ML)

BET FRANCE +185.

France, as noted, wasn’t impressive in the group stage, but it is tough to not see its dominant win over the Netherlands and assume they’ll be able to make it through Germany.

Germany doesn’t have a top-30 player per ESPN’s latest rankings of the top women’s soccer athletes. France, on the otherhand, has 3 in the top 30, 1 at each level of position (forward, midfield and defense).

That striking level of talent is going to be on full display. France has had a remarkable 21 more shots on target than its opponent in the last 3 matches.

Germany had fewer shots on target and only 30% of possession against Spain which isn’t necessarily a positive. Put it all together, and France seem like the far better option here.

Over/Under (O/U)

LEAN OVER 2.5 (+125).

Germany has scored at least 2 goals in every game.

France has scored at least 1 and 2 or more in 2 of its last 4 matches. France also had 13 shots on target and 33 total shots in its quarterfinal match against a top-5 Netherlands team.

Both teams have shown enough potential offensively to assume they’ll be able to top this total.

2022 Women’s Euro semi: Sweden vs. England odds, picks and predictions

Analyzing Tuesday’s Sweden vs. England odds and lines, with 2022 Euro Women’s picks and predictions.

England welcomes Sweden to Bramall Lane in Sheffield Tuesday for a Women’s Euro 2020 semifinal. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET (ESPN2/ESPN+). Below, we preview the Sweden vs. England odds and lines, and make our best women’s soccer picks and predictions.

This is theoretically a home match for England, which is coming off a 2-1 quarterfinal win over Spain Wednesday. England won all three group-stage matches by a combined score of 14-0.

England did have some trouble in the quarterfinal though, getting outshot 17-9 and allowing Spain to control 58% of the possession. Nonetheless, England, which is ranked No. 8 in FIFA, advanced with the 1-goal victory over 7th-ranked Spain.

Now, England will face No. 2 Sweden (USA is No. 1). The Swedish haven’t had as easy of a ride to the final four. Sweden tied Netherland 1-1 in its group-stage opener before winning the next 3 matches by a combined 8-2 score, including Friday’s 1-0 quarterfinal victory over Belgium.

Sweden tallied 34 shots and 8 on target in the quarterfinal compared to Belgium’s 3 and 0. Despite being higher ranked, Sweden will be a strong underdog in this semifinal battle.

Prediction

Sweden 2, England 1

Money line (ML)

SWEDEN WIN OR TIE (-127).

The talent is going to be there for both teams, but the battle will really be between superstar Swedish D Magdalena Eriksson and English F Fran Kirby.

Kirby is England’s starting attacking midfield and has been excellent so far this tournament. On the other side, Sweden has taken on 3 top-20 teams and allowed just 6 shots on target.

While Spain was a difficult test for England, the Swedish draw with the Netherlands and then dominance over Belgium should make one confident they’ll have success against a strong English attack.

The Swedes beat England 2-1 back in the 2019 World Cup third-place play-off match, so they’ve been able to handle England in the past.

The value here is taking the road side at +300, but I’d suggest playing a safer SWEDEN WIN OR TIE (-127).

Over/Under (O/U)

LEAN OVER 2.5 (+120).

The last time these two met, the teams went Over 2.5 goals in the first 31 minutes. Now, this will likely be much different, but Sweden is coming off a match in which it played a top-20 side and put up 34 shots.

Similarly, with Kirby leading the way, England shouldn’t be shy of opportunity. The Lionesses topped 2.5 goals this in 2 of 3 group-stage matches and against Spain, a top-10 team, in the 2-1 quarterfinal win.

Expect a high-level match, one that is played with pace and has opportunity to get a shot on frame. With that in mind, for the value play, I like OVER 2.5 (+120).

USWNT vs. Mexico odds, picks and predictions

Analyzing Monday’s USA vs. Mexico odds and lines, with MLS picks and predictions.

The United States Women’s National Team (2-0) will take on the Mexican Women’s National Team (0-2) Monday. Kickoff from Estadio Universitario is set for 10 p.m. ET. Below, we preview the USA vs. Mexico odds and lines, and make our best MLS bets, picks and predictions.

This match will conclude the final round of Group A for the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.

Also in Group A were Haiti and Jamaica, both of which have won and lost a game. They will play for the second spot in the group as the USWNT’s goal differential makes it very improbably they drop even with a loss.

The USWNT have scored 8 goals and allowed none through 2 games. They beat Haiti 3-0 and then Jamaica 5-0 with both games played last week.

Mexico lost to Jamaica 1-0 and then to Haiti 3-0. Although Mexico has lost both times they still come in at No. 26 in the world, according to FIFA. They could put up a fight against the top-ranked USA.

USWNT vs. Mexico odds, lines, picks and predictions

  • Money line: USA -5000 (bet $5,000 to win $100) | Mexico +4000 (bet $100 to win $4,000) | Draw +1100
  • Over/Under: 4.5 (O: -115 | U: -125)

[tipico]

Prediction

USA 4, Mexico 0

Money line (ML)

PASS. There’s no value here.

Per Tipico, the most likely final score is 4-0 which is what I also would suggest. The USWNT offense hasn’t been good enough as of late to look into a 5-0 win which could fall under the -117 “other” tab.

Nonetheless, the value isn’t here to bet the total.

Over/Under (O/U)

BET UNDER 4.5 (-125).

The USWNT has played 9 games this season, and they have topped this total in 5 of them.

However, they’ve only given up 1 goal on the year, and that was against Uzbekistan on their lone shot of the match. Mexico gave up just 1 goal to Jamaica.

Against Haiti, they had 2 conceded on 2 penalties and then their opponents’ 3rd goal after Mexico had sustained a red card. Prior to these 2, Mexico had won all 4 matches of 2022. They still sit top 30 as well, not outside the top 50 like Jamaica and Haiti.

With the game in Mexico, the crowd should be raucous. Considering Mexico failed to score in both games, it’s doubtful their offense finds some legs against USWNT.

With that in mind, their ranking suggests they should pose a stronger defense than either of the USA’s other competitors. I’ll take the Under 4.5 (-125) as the game’s best bet.

USWNT vs. Colombia soccer odds, picks and predictions

Analyzing Tuesday’s USWNT vs. Colombia soccer odds and lines, with picks and predictions.

The United States Women’s National Team hosts Colombia at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. Tuesday’s kickoff is set for 10 p.m. ET (ESPN). Below, we preview the USWNT vs. Columbia odds and lines, and make our best soccer bets, picks and predictions.

This will continue the summer circuit of international friendlies for the USWNT. After crushing Uzbekistan 9-0 and 9-1 in a pair of matches, the USWNT defeated Colombia 3-0 in Colorado Saturday.

The friendlies will help Team USA get into form for the CONCACAF Women’s Championship final round, which commences with a match against Haiti July 4.

At least in their first match, Colombia posed a larger threat to the USWNT than many of its previous opponents, mainly on the defensive end. While the USWNT had 22 shots, they were limited to just 8 on target. Colombia had 27% of the possession and just 1 shot.

Colombia ranks 28th in the world, per FIFA women’s rankings (USA is No. 1). Coming into this 2-game match with the U.S., Colombia had drawn its last 4 international friendlies, 2 against Argentina and 2 against Venezuela.

USWNT vs. Colombia odds, lines, picks and predictions

  • Money line: USWNT -10000 (bet $10,000 to win $100) | Colombia +4000 (bet $100 to win $4000) | Draw +1200
  • Over/Under: 4.5 (O: -135 | U: -107)

[tipico]

Prediction

USA 4, Colombia 0

Money line (ML)

PASS.

Betting any favorite at -10000 produces little value.

Even $100 would result in a fraction of a dollar in return. Even the alternate line of USA -2 at -370 has no value. There are some correct score predictions that may be worth a long-shot gamble.

Considering the USWNT gave up 1 shot on Saturday and has given up just 1 goal total in all 6 of the 2022 matches, which was Uzbekistan’s only shot on target, I’d back its defense.

If you’re set on playing the USWNT, a final result of 4-0 (+420) would be worth a small wager.

Over/Under (O/U)

BET UNDER 4.5 (-107).

The USWNT might not have put up 6 or 7 goals on Saturday, but they were still dominant. That display should role over into their performance on Tuesday evening. They controlled the game, holding 73% of possession.

Colombia had just 1 shot on 0 shots on target. They had under half as many passes. I expect a similar showing. The USWNT had just 8 shots on target, scoring on 3.

The USA has played 2 of its 4 matches this year against FIFA top 30 teams under this total. The only 2 that reached it were a pair of 5-0 wins over New Zealand.

Considering how they played Saturday mixed with the fact that the USWNT should be giving more minutes to younger players and fewer to veterans like F Alex Morgan, I expect this battle to again go under.

Analyzing Saturday’s USWNT vs. Colombia odds and lines, with MLS picks and predictions.

The United States Women’s National Team hosts Colombia at DSG Park in Commerce City, Colo. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Below, we preview the USWNT vs. Columbia odds and lines, and make our best MLS bets, picks and predictions.

This will continue the summer circuit of international friendly for the USWNT. They crushed Uzbekistan, 9-0, scoring on an own goal in the 1st minute their last time on the pitch. They won 9-1 the match before.

This will help them get into form for the CONCACAF Women’s Championship final round, which commences with a match against Haiti July 4. They’ll take on Colombia at Rio Tinto Stadium Tuesday.

As for Colombia, they should pose a larger threat than Uzbekistan.

Colombia ranks 28th in the world, per FIFA women’s rankings (USA sits No. 1). Colombia has drawn their last 4 international friendlies, 2 against Argentina and 2 against Venezuela.

[tipico]

Prediction

USA 4, Colombia 0

Money line (ML)

PASS.

Betting any favorite at -20000 produces little value.

Even $100 would result in a fraction of a dollar in return. That said, even USA -2 at -800 has no value. There are some correct score predictions that may be worth a long-shot gamble.

Considering the USWNT has given up 1 goal in all 5 2022 matches, which was Uzbekistan’s only shot on target, I’d back their defense.

If you’re set on playing the USWNT, 4-0 (+430) would be worth a small wager.

Over/Under (O/U)

BET UNDER 5.5 (-115).

The USWNT has played in 5 games in 2022, and they’ve outscored their opponents 28-1.

However, they beat Uzbekistan 18-1 in their 2 most recent matches. The other 3 were a 0-0 draw with the Czech Republic and two 5-0 wins over New Zealand.

Colombia should look more like those than the women’s dominance over Uzbekistan. In Colombia’s 4 friendlies this year, they’ve scored 4 and allowed 4 with two 0-0 draws and two 2-2 draws as the results.

While the USWNT has elite scorers like F Alex Morgan and F Megan Rapinoe, they’ve also been trying to incorporate the next generation of women’s talent.

Combine what they’ve done against quality opponents with who should take the pitch, and the UNDER 5.5 (-115) is my favorite play in this battle.
