<p style="text-align:center"><strong>Sweden (2-0-0) vs. U.S.A (2-0-0)</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Thursday, June 20, 3:00 PM EST</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Stade Oceane – Le Havre, France TV Channel – Fox and Telemundo Streaming – fuboTV</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Odds: Sweden +1000, USA -400, Draw +475</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Free Soccer Pick: <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/womens-world-cup/sweden-vs-usa-3750233/odds/" target="_blank">UNDER 2.5 at +107</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Recommended Sportsbook: <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4512&amp;book=Bet365" target="_blank">Bet365</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center">[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3750233, "sportsbooksIds":[43,1096,999991,180,1602], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]</p><div>The much-anticipated group F showdown between <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/womens-world-cup/sweden-vs-usa-3750233/odds/" target="_blank">Sweden and USA</a> looms on the horizon, and by all accounts it should be a right thriller. Both teams go into the last lap of group play undefeated. Sweden opened their campaign with a 2-0 win over Chile and then took down Thailand 5-1. The Americans, meanwhile, <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/united-states-starts-title-defense-with-largest-win-in-a-womens-world-cup-match/90573/" target="_blank">thrashed Thailand 13-0</a> in their group opener before dealing Chile a 3-0 loss.</div><div><p>As it stands, the Americans are sat atop group F with a strong goal differential, which means they need only a draw to top the section. Sweden, on the other hand, needs a victory to win the section. Either way, both have secured a spot in the playoffs.</p><p>So it comes down to where each team stands for the knockout stages. There is still a lot to play for and every chance that this matchup could serve up a surprise.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Women’s World Cup 2019: USA’s Jill Ellis expects challenge from Sweden, but isn’t worried about past &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/QR8ExYoYbm\"&gt;https://t.co/QR8ExYoYbm&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/YO2V77qaZL\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/YO2V77qaZL&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— YoBuzz (@YoBuzz1) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/YoBuzz1/status/1141417138739142658?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;June 19, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</div><p>Indeed, the<a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/womens-world-cup/sweden-vs-usa-3750233/odds/" target="_blank"> money line odds for the USA team</a> are finally reasonable for those soccer betting enthusiasts looking to back the win. At -400 with <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4512&amp;book=Bet365" target="_blank">Bet365</a> that is the best value price thus far for the USWNT. On the flipside, Sweden’s +1000 bet doesn’t scream pipedream as the soccer odds for other opponents in previous matches.</p><p>Those looking to bet the win market might fancy hedging their bets with either a Sweden win or draw at +300 with bet365 or the double chance Sweden or USA to win at -600.</p><p>Sweden are ranked ninth in the world and have appeared at every instalment of the World Cup, not unlike the Americans. In head-to-heads with USA the Swedes own a 6-21-11 record in all competitions. In World Cup action, the Swedes are 1-1-3 against the Americans.</p><p>Given the calibre and quality of both teams this should be a much closer affair than either team has faced in this competition. It may very well be decided by a lone goal. <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/womens-world-cup/sweden-vs-usa-3750233/odds/" target="_blank">The UNDER 2.5 goals is priced at a tasty +107 with Bet365</a>.</p><p><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/players-talk/3549622-am-i-only-guy-rooting-against-american-women-world-cup-soccer.html" target="_blank">The Americans</a> haven’t conceded in the tournament yet. They are just one of three teams to boast such a record. The No bet for both teams to score is therefore favoured at -188 with Bet365.</p><p>Another angle for the aforementioned trend is to bet on the correct score. A scoreless draw is an attractive +1000 bet with Bet365, while a 1-0 score for USA is tipped at +500. Sweden to win 1-0 is priced at +2200 and a 1-1 draw is tipped at +1000. All very reasonable and value bets to consider for your soccer picks.</p><p>For our money, we’re betting the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/womens-world-cup/sweden-vs-usa-3750233/odds/" target="_blank">UNDER 2.5 at +107</a> and, perhaps, putting a small stake on the upset by Sweden. Yup, you heard it here. Sweden can defeat the Americans, who have yet to be truly tested in the competition.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;We are one day away from Sweden vs USA!
