Aside from the fact that nobody ever seems to care about soccer, the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup has had some exciting matches, none more exciting than the United States’ dramatic quarterfinal win over Brazil on Sunday.
With the third place match between Sweden and France scheduled for 11:30 a.m., there’s still plenty of time to place a wager.

Here are the odds for the France vs. Sweden match:
The Over/Under is set at 2.5 goals.
If you are a fan of experience and like to look at previous matches against quality opponents, then you should probably pick Sweden at +140. Sweden has beat the United States twice in 2011, once in the World Cup. Although their loss against Japan was somewhat of a shock, Sweden should have been the favorite in this game.
Then again, France is full of youth and loves to shoot; they’ll fire away from anywhere on the pitch. They are confident in their abilities, and it shows. The only concern is their goal keeping, which has been shaky at times.
My Pick: Sweden +140 and Over 2.5 goals. This game should finish in the 3 to 5 goal range. In France’s last 19 games, the final combined score has been 3-plus 13 times, including three times in the 2011 World Cup.
