We have reached the quarterfinals of the women’s soccer tournament at the 2012 Olympics, and the United States is sitting pretty. Team USA cruised through their Group play, going 3-0 in the process and setting them up nicely for a run at a third-straight gold medal.
The United States will take on New Zealand in the quarters on Friday, and are heavy favorites to advance on through to the semifinals.
2012 Olympics betting odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set the United States as -700 favorites on the moneyline. And when you look at the betting line for New Zealand, it’s easy to understand why they are big favorites. New Zealand has been set at +2000 on the payout. To put this into perspective, a $700 bet is needed to profit $100 for the Americans. For New Zealand, a $100 wager would profit $2000 should they pull the upset straight up.
The payout for a draw is set at +500.
There has also been a goal spread installed as well.
The United States are set as two-goal favorites over New Zealand on the goal line. To cover, the United States will need to win by at least three goals, with a one-goal victory, draw, or loss obviously giving the victory against the spread to New Zealand. The bet would be a push if the United States win by exactly two goal.
And even on this spread, the United States are favored to cover the line, meaning oddsmakers are definitely not expecting this game to be competitive. Team USA is going off at -160 on the amount wagered to cover, which is way closer than on the moneyline. New Zealand is just on the other side of the betting line, going off at +125 on the payout.
The over/under goal total for this game is set at three goals.
If the United States are to win then they would play the winner of the Great Britain and Canada match up in the semifinals.
