Football betting fans will be spoilt for choice when checking out the markets that bwin has laid on for the Women’s World Cup final.
Punters will have the choice of no less than 101 different bets as USA face Japan in the showpiece finale after both coming through the semi-final stage with 3-1 wins.
USA are favourites to go on to lift the cup at 1/2, while underdogs Japan are priced at 7/5 to cause a major upset.
As for the match itself, The Yanks are again favourites to secure a victory, with bwin making Pia Sundhage’s side an 11/10 bet to win inside 90 minutes, while Japan are available at 11/5 and the draw can be backed at 12/5.
One of the major reasons for these odds is the fact that Japan have failed to beat USA in five attempts, meaning the Americans will go into the final full of confidence.
One thing is for certain, though, and that is that the game will see its fair share of goals.
Both sides are among the most prolific seen in the competition in front of goal, with USA averaging two goals per game and Japan hitting 1.8 goals every match.
As such, a number of punters could be persuaded to back a winning margin from one of the last five USA successes over Japan.
The last two matches between the two sides have finished 2-0 to The Yanks, and this scoreline is seen as a 23/4 shot to be the outcome in the final.
USA have also secured 2-1, 4-2 and 1-0 wins over their rivals and these results are available at 33/4, 50/1 and 13/2 respectively.
Punters using the free £25 bet bwin offers its new customers on the 4-2 win would be in line for a significant windfall.
If successful, this bet would net fans placing a £25 wager no less than £1,275.
Another tempting option could be for Japan to continue to shock followers of the competition with an unlikely cup win and Norio Sasaki’s side are priced at odds of 11/1 to secure a 2-1 win.
Both sides are able to call on top-notch goal scorers, with Japan looking to Homare Sawa, the cup’s top markswoman with four goals from five games, to fire them to glory.
USA’s main goal threat needs little introduction. Abbey Wambach is one of the most prolific forwards in world football and her three goals so far have taken her personal international tally to 121 in 161 games.
With goals looking likely, the better odds are available on one of the teams to win to nil. Japan are priced at 9/2 to achieve the feat, while odds of 23/10 say USA will win while keeping a clean sheet.
With so many bets available on the game, punters could be tempted to place a number of novelty wagers and perhaps the pick of the bunch is the 50/1 odds on Japan and the USA to receive red cards at the same time.
