The final act of two major football competitions will unfold on Sunday evening. This is when the Copa America and Women’s World Cup Winners will be revealed at the end of some truly promising matches. Brazil and the United States are the favorites in these matches, but their opponents are guaranteed to give them a run for their money. Punters can bet on these two finals and leading bookmakers such as bet365 Sports and 888 Sport, as the odds are already available.
Brazil is the Overwhelming Favorite in the Last Act of Copa America
Brazil has encountered some problems during the group stage, but the team is back on form after a 2-0 victory over Argentina. Offensively sound and capable of defending against some of the best teams in the world, the Brazilians don’t have much to worry against Peru. Their opponents have played defensively throughout the tournament, with a notable exception being the recent victory over Chile in the semifinal.
888 Sport offers odds of 1/3 on Brazil to prevail in regulation time, and spectacular odds of 4/1 on the match to end undecided. Punters who are bold enough as to take a leap of faith with the underdogs will take advantage of odds of 10/1. The best part is that these odds are likely to rise as kickoff draws near, since most of the punters are expected to bet massively on the favorites.
The United States takes on the Netherlands in the Women’s World Cup Final
The United States was credited with the first chance at the beginning of the Women’s World Cup. They ride an impressive winning streak of 13 games and have outscored opponents during this successful run. What is a bit concerning ahead of this fixture is that the last three victories were all secured by the odd goal. The United States were also unable to keep a clean sheet in any of these games, which can be problematic against a high-scoring team such as the Netherlands.
These two teams have met on two occasions, both times in official tournaments and the United States prevailed. The score recorded in each of these games was 3-1, a not so unlikely outcome for this match, given the recent string of results. Risk-averse punters should stick to the safe alternative and bet on the US to prevail in regulation time, at odds of 9/20. The alternative would be to bet on the Netherlands at 7/1, or to mitigate the risks and settle for the double chance wager at 2/1 with bet365 Sports.
