- Brazil is the slight favorite over Spain with odds of (+170) for the gold medal soccer match happening on Saturday.
- Spain will be the minor underdogs with (+200) odds.
- Both countries are looking for their second Olympic gold medals in the event’s history for soccer.
TOKYO – As Brazil looks to secure its second straight Olympic gold medal in soccer, there is only one team left in their path in doing so. Spain, coming off of a semifinal loss at the Euros, will be looking to come out on top for this matchup that will get them the gold and send Brazil packing.
Gold Medal Match: Who Will Win?
Spain and Brazil were the two favorites for the Summer 2020 Olympics tournament before the games even began. Spain was the top choice at (+300) while Brazil was not far behind at (+325). It seems as if the regulated sportsbooks had it right as the two are now set to compete against each other for the gold medal at the finals.
While Spain was favored prior to the event, Brazil has picked up enough momentum to be labeled as the favorite in this match, albeit not by much.
Spain vs Brazil Odds
- Brazil +170
- Spain +200
- Draw +190
Spain came into the tournament with six players from the Euro team, an impressive number considering that players must be 23-years-old or younger.
If a group that young can make it to the semifinals in the Euros, there’s little to suggest that they wouldn’t be able to be the difference-makers at the Olympics while competing against athletes their age. The underdog might be the best bet to take in this match with that information in mind.
For those who want to take the possibility of a draw out of the picture, there are separate Olympic betting odds to do so.
Spain vs Brazil – No Draw Odds
- Brazil -120
- Spain EVEN
Betting The Total
It’s possible that some bettors may not be confident in either team but instead of the idea of what type of game it will be in terms of scoring. Considering that both teams have scored eight goals and allowed three through their five games, betting on the total could prove to be beneficial to any sports bettor looking for action.
Spain vs Brazil Total Odds
- Over 2.0 +105
- Under 2.0 -125
Spain scored more than one goal in just one game in the Olympics but has had three clean sheets as well. Brazil went scoreless in two of their five games but have put up three or more goals twice as well. The Brazilian defense also has three clean sheets.
Most signs point towards a low-scoring affair but betting the Under on a total of two goals seems risky. However, seven of the team’s combined ten games saw a total of two goals or fewer.
Possible Longshot Bets
Since the game is expected to be low scoring and due to the fact that four of their last ten games reached the end of extra time in a draw, betting on both sides to win in a shootout might be worth the investment.
Method Of Victory Odds
- Spain In Shootout +900
- Brazil In Shootout +900
Brazil and Spain were thought to be neck and neck before the Olympics and the odds show nothing has changed since. So why not take the teams to play each other as close as they can with the benefit of (+900) odds for each and a pretty great payout on this wager for those willing to take the risk. The game begins Saturday at 7:30 a.m. EST and can be viewed by the NBC Network.
