Women's World Cup odds, insider predictions 2019: Betting lines, expert picks for USA vs. Netherlands
The Soccerbot is up 2,000 percent and just locked in picks for Sunday's championship match.
After suffering a loss at the hands of Sweden in the 2016 Summer Olympics, the USWNT has been on a mission at the 2019 Women's World Cup to prove they're still the dominant team that won this tournament four years ago. On Sunday, they'll have a chance to win their fourth Women's World Cup at Stade de Lyon. However, a young and hungry Netherlands squad on a 12-match winning streak in major international tournaments stands in their way. Kickoff for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup final is scheduled for 11 a.m. ET. Team USA is a -275 favorite (risk $275 to win $100), with the Netherlands listed as the +765 (risk $100 to win $765) underdog in the latest USA vs. Netherlands odds. A draw in regulation pays out +385 and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5. It's an unfamiliar matchup for both sides with plenty on the line, so make sure to see the USA vs. Netherlands picks from European football expert David Sumpter before locking in your 2019 Women's World Cup predictions for Sunday's final.
Sumpter is an applied mathematician and author of "Soccermatics," a book that explains how math works inside the sport. Along with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.
The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In the three seasons since its inception, Soccerbot is up an incredible 2,000 percent on Premier League picks. That's right -- 2,000 percent.
The model is crushing its 2019 Women's World Cup picks, returning over $1,100 to anyone following it. The model correctly predicted the stunning Japan-Argentina draw (+825) -- a more than 8-1 long shot -- and its been red hot in the knockout stage, correctly calling the exact 2-1 score in the USA's dramatic victory against England, Sweden's shocking upset of Germany and the Netherlands' 2-0 win over Italy.
Now, the model has its sights set on USA vs. Netherlands. We can tell you it's leaning over, but its much stronger play is on the USA vs. Netherlands money line. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.
The model knows the United States has shown attacking versatility so far in the 2019 Women's World Cup bracket. Known for its depth and quality in the midfield, England made it difficult to play the ball cleanly through that part of the field. Team USA adapted quickly, playing balls over the top and using Alex Morgan's speed up the middle to get into the attacking third.
Morgan eventually scored her sixth goal of the 2019 World Cup on her 30th birthday on a beautifully played ball into the box from Lindsey Horan to give the United States a 2-1 lead the Americans hold for the rest of the game. The United States has outlasted quality sides from France and England in its last two matches despite losing the possession battle and letting the game come to them. If the Americans can get another early goal, they may choose to play similarly against a Dutch side that struggled to create opportunities in the final third against Sweden.
But that doesn't guarantee the Americans are the best value on the Team USA vs. Netherlands money line in the finals.
The model has also considered that, while the Netherlands has never made it this far in the World Cup, the Dutch still have plenty of big-game experience. They won the 2017 European Championship, knocking out Sweden, England and Denmark in that tournament.
And they've risen to the occasion thus far in the FIFA Women's World Cup 2019, knocking off 2011 champion Japan in the Round of 16 before taking down European powers Italy and Sweden to earn a berth in the finals. They've done all that without superstar forward Lieke Martens being in top form. She's battled a foot injury, but they're hopeful she'll be able to go 90-plus minutes on Sunday, potentially giving the offense a major boost.
So who wins the Women's World Cup 2019 final? And where does all the betting value lie? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Netherlands vs. USA money line you need to be all over Sunday, all from an expert who created a model that's returned a 2,000 percent profit on bookmakers' closing odds.
