United States vs. China Betting Odds

Spread Moneyline Total Goals

China

 +1, +1.5 (-115)  +675 OVER 2, 2.5 (+110)
United States  -1, -1.5 (-119)  -300 UNDER 2, 2.5 (-130)
Draw    +285

The United States takes on China tonight in the second quarterfinals match of the tournament. The winners will face off against either Germany or France in the semifinals.

The Americans tonight will be playing without Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holiday, two strong midfielders that must sit out because of suspensions due to yellow cards. United States manager Jill Ellis said her team could be flexible in this matchup based on their alignment. The Americans have never failed to reach the semifinals in an international tournament and even without two of their most solid players on the pitch tonight, they should be able to win.

China has looked solid in their four matches to date, but they have allowed three goals — two to New Zealand in the final match of group stages. It's probably going to take at least two tallies to knock out the Americans, if they can do it in regulation time. If the United States finds a way to post a goal early in this match, it could be a problem for China.

The Chinese have a very defensive-oriented team and that should help keep the score down. The Americans will win this match in regulation time, though. The United States defense, and goal keeper Hope Solo, are just playing too well.
