Moneyline pick: England +180
England will be looking to repeat last year’s huge Euro success after winning the final at Wembley in the dying moments of the match. Of course, the Lionesses had to go through Spain in that tournament to get to the final, coming back from a 1-0 deficit and beating La Roja with a late equalizer and a match winner in extra time.
Spain looked to be heading into extra time again in their semifinal match against Sweden, but a 90th-minute stunner from Olga Carmona gave them the edge and booked their first-ever spot in the World Cup final.
While lifting their first women’s World Cup trophy would be massive for both countries, only one winner can come out of the contest and I’m leaning toward England to make that happen. They’ve been exceptional throughout the tournament and have been running like a well-oiled machine. Spain have been playing some great soccer as well, but have relied on some late-game theatrics to see them through to the next round more than once. Back the Lionesses to secure the title on Sunday.
