The Olympic women’s soccer tournament is nearing its end as there are only four teams left in the competition. The semifinal games will be played on August 2 with the gold medal match taking place on August 5. Here we’ll take a look at betting odds and info for each semifinal game.

Tokyo Olympics 2021 Women’s Soccer Monday, August 2 schedule

USA vs. Canada

Time: 4:00a.m. ET
TV channel: USA Network, Telemundo
Live stream: Fubo TV
Moneyline: USA -150, Tie +290, Canada +450
Total goals: 2.5 (Over -120, Under +100)

Australia vs. Sweden

Time: 7:00a.m. ET
TV channel: USA Network, Telemundo
Live stream: Fubo TV
Moneyline: Australia +450, Tie +310, Sweden -160
Total goals: 2.5 (Over -140, Under +110)

Best Bet: USA in regular time (-150)

While both Sweden and the USWNT are favored to win their respective games, the USA women have a long dominant history over the Canadian side. The teams have met 61 times in the past with the USWNT winning 51 matches. Seven matches ended in a draw and if you’re doing the math, that means Canada has only defeated the US women three times in history. This tournament really shouldn’t be any different as the USWNT will look to continue its dominance on the Olympic stage, winning four of the six tournaments that have been played since its inauguration in 1996. I think the safe bet here is USA to advance to the final in regular time over Canada.
