Tokyo Olympics 2021 Women’s Soccer finals, Thursday, August 5

Sweden vs. Canada

Time: 10:00 p.m. ET
TV channel: USA
Live stream: NBCOlympics.com
Moneyline: Sweden -115, Draw +245, Canada +360
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +160, Under -200)

Best Bet: Sweden to win (-240)

Sweden might not have been the best team in the tournament, but was clearly a contender to medal after a 3-0 win over USWNT in the opening match. The Swedes have taken care of business in every game and there’s no reason to think they can’t win gold. Canada is coming off an emotional victory over the Americans but likely doesn’t have another performance like that in it for the final.
