United States Women’s Soccer Betting Odds vs North Korea

Filed under: Other Sports Odds |

The Women’s United States soccer team definitely got out to a better start in their second game in the London Olympics than in the first. After a horrible start in which they got down 2-0 in the opener, the United States bounced back with a 4-2 win over France. But in the second game, against Colombia, the United States were in control throughout.

The result was a convincing 3-0 victory, though two of those goals did not come until the later portion of the second half, when the U.S proved to be too strong and too athletic for the Colombian team. But for the majority of the game, it was a 1-0 lead that the United States preserved. The U.S definitely missed on some chances, but all things considered, it was an impressive performance.

So the United States move to 2-0 in the 2012 London Olympics, as they look for a third-straight gold medal.

Next up on the schedule is North Korea, for which the United States have been set as heavy favorites.
