Brazil and Spain enter the gold medal match as essentially co-favorites. Both sides were heavily picked to win the competition and clearly showed their dominance over the field in Tokyo. Brazil had a scare against Mexico in the semifinal, ultimately advancing 4-1 on penalty kicks. Spain knocked out host nation Japan in extra time 1-0 to reach the final. Here’s how to catch the men’s Olympic soccer gold medal match.

Tokyo Olympics 2021 Men’s Soccer finals, Saturday, August 7

Brazil vs. Spain

Time: 7:30 a.m. ET
TV channel: NBCSN
Live stream:
Moneyline: Brazil +175, Draw +200, Spain +190
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +155, Under -195)

Best Bet: Draw moneyline regular time (+200)

This match could go either way, but one thing is almost certain; both teams will not be wanting to make the first mistake. Spain has played two consecutive extra time matches in the knockout round. Brazil is coming off a penalty shootout. At +200, there’s great value in predicting these teams to see out regular time with no result.
