Odds, picks & predictions

Sweden: +240
Draw: +195
USA: +125

Moneyline pick: Draw +195

The United States has hardly lived up to their No. 1 status this tournament, with draws in their last two matches against the Netherlands and Portugal. On the other hand, Sweden have met their high expectations with a perfect record in the group stage, scoring nine goals and conceding only one.

The upcoming match between the two teams is expected to be tough, with both sides focusing on defense and keeping the ball in front of them. As such, I’m predicting another draw for the United States. This means things would be decided in extra time or via penalty shootout. The draw, valued at +195 odds, could be a great pick.
