2021 Olympic Odds: USA Women’s Soccer Looks To Rebound Against New Zealand
The USWNT didn’t get off to the start they were hoping for in their opening game of the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo. Not only did they lose their first game of the group stage, to Sweden, they were dominated, 3-0.
Sweden is a great team itself. They came into the Olympics with +1000 odds to win gold, the fourth shortest. But, the United States Women’s team, with superstars like Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan, has been the team to beat for quite some years and losing their opening game has some bettors and fans worried.
So, now the team turns its attention to New Zealand, a team they should beat easily. The USWNT plays New Zealand on Saturday, July 24, looking to rebound from their opening loss and the latest Olympic odds seem to think the US will make quick work of their opponent.
Women’s Olympic Soccer: United States vs. New Zealand Odds
The New Zealand women’s soccer team, like the United States, led off the tournament with a loss. However, it was a 2-1 loss to a team they are evenly matched with in Australia, not a blowout loss to a team they should have beaten like the USWNT.
Still, the United States is a heavy favorite in their upcoming game against New Zealand, despite being in last place in Group G thanks to a -3 goal differential. Goal scorers like Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Tobin Heath, Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle need to step up and score a lot of golas come Saturday if they’re going to erase that differential.
