Brazil vs Mexico Olympic Soccer Men’s Gold Medal Match Odds

Filed under: Other Sports Odds |

The Brazil men’s soccer team came into the 2012 Olympics as the odds-on favorite to win. But the matchup that everyone anticipated in the gold medal game with Spain will not happen. That’s because Spain, the reigning 2012 Euro Cup champions, did not even make it out of group play. But in the gold medal game on Saturday, Brazil will be challenged by Mexico.

But it’s Brazil who has been set as the big favorite in this match to achieve what oddsmakers had predicted in the start of the 2012 Olympics in London.

Olympic Soccer Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set Brazil as a -375 favorite on the line to win the gold medal. In the role of the underdog, Mexico comes in at +300. They are almost exact opposites on the line.

For the goal line in this match up, Brazil has been set as a one-goal favorite to defeat Mexico. To cover, they will need to win by at least two goals, with a one-goal win resulting in a push. To cover though, Brazil is not the favorite, paying out -105. Mexico is paying out at -125 to cover the line.

There has also been a moneyline installed for the game, for the winner straight up without a handicap. Though this line only has to deal with the 90 minutes plus stoppage time, with overtime not included. Here, Brazil is set as a -185 favorite to win the game in the 90 minutes and stoppage time, while Mexico is going off at +475.
