Canada vs Sweden prediction, 2019 Women’s World Cup betting previews

Canada vs Sweden betting predictions - 2019 Women's World Cup

Canada will enter its women’s World Cup round of 16 clash against Sweden as favourite at Parc des Princes in Paris.

The knockout clash will be played on Monday afternoon, Canadian time, with Canada priced at +155 to record a victory, while Sweden’s odds are at +215.

Odds-makers have priced the draw at +190, with Canada and Sweden fighting out a 0-0 draw earlier this year.

We feel as though the time is now for Canada, with one of the most experienced squads in the tournament, including star striker Christine Sinclair and 12 players with more than 50 international games on their resume.

Here are our Canada vs Sweden predictions and best bets for this match, due to kick off at 3pm ET.

Best bets: Canada vs Sweden

Here are our two best bets for the Canada vs Sweden Women’s World Cup match.

Christine Sinclair to score first goal

We can see it now, the champion Canadian scoring nice and early at the age of 36, in what is likely to be her final World Cup campaign. Sinclair sits only two goals behind Abby Wambach on the all-time international goals list and has scored already at this tournament. Most online sportsbooks are pricing her at around $5.50 for the first goal.

Over/Under 2.5 goals

We are predicting this one to be a defensive slog, with not many goals scored as evidenced by the 0-0 draw earlier this year. While under 2.5 goals is only paying 1.50, which seems a little slim, we think this could be a great leg for your parlays.

Canada v Sweden prediction

We think Canada will be too hard to score against in this one, with their defence giving up just three goals so far in 12 matches in 2019, and just two (both came in the loss to European champion Netherlands) at the World Cup. In fact Canada had given up just two shots at goal in their previous two matches before this result.

If you are looking for something with a little bit more value, bet on Canada to win 1-0, while the match finishing in a draw and going to penalties is also a real possibility.

When placing your Sweden-Canada women’s football World Cup bets, keep in mind the Swedes thrashed them 3-1 as recently as 2018.
