Best Bets For This Weekend’s Olympic Soccer Matches

  • Brazil are -390 favorited over the Ivory Coast on Sunday.
  • Mexico is a minor betting favorite over Japan with +145 odds to win.
  • Spain has -340 odds to beat Australia for their second straight victory.

TOKYO – With 14 matches scheduled to take place this weekend, there are a couple of Olympic soccer bets that stand out a bit more than the rest.

Brazil vs Ivory Coast

Brazil is one of the favorites to win the gold medal on the men’s side so it may be unsurprising to find them as a favorite against the Ivory Coast.

However, some may argue that the Olympic betting odds should be even more in favor of the Brazilians.

Brazil vs Ivory Coast Moneyline Odds

Depending on the individual, -390 might be a little too expensive to justify betting on which is why the Over 2.5 goals may be the best bet of the match.

Brazil vs Ivory Coast Total Odds

In their first matches of the Olympics, the total of Brazil’s game was six and the total of the Ivory Coast’s was three. Given that Brazil has the ability to hit this mark itself, Olympic soccer bettors should feel confident in the Over in this spot.

Mexico vs Japan

Mexico has arguably the most impressive performance of any team in the opener of the Olympics with a 4-1 win over France.

Japan looked solid as they took a 1-0 win over South Africa, but not nearly as dominant as Mexico did. Mexico are minor favorites in the matchup that leaves value on both sides.

Mexico vs Japan Moneyline Odds

It’s never smart to base an entire mindset off of one performance, but Mexico looked good enough to tail until the streak ends. Mexico was likely undervalued to begin the event, and their big win in their last performance shows why.

Spain vs Australia

Spain is pegged as the favorite to win the gold medal, likely due to having six players from the Euro 2020 semifinals team joining the roster.

Despite drawing 0-0 against Egypt, this is still likely the best team in the tournament.

Spain vs Australia Moneyline Odds

There are other odds offered on sports betting sites such as Spain -1 at -105 odds or the Over 2.5 goals at -120 odds. While that could be enticing, the best bet for this Olympic soccer match may be to just lay the juice and take the Spaniards on the moneyline.
