  • Team USA has advanced to finals of the 2019 Women's World Cup, which takes place on Sunday at 11 a.m. ET.
  • Despite injury concerns surrounding star Megan Rapinoe, USA remain a heavy favorite in Las Vegas.
  • Here are the current Women's World Cup odds following USA's win over England.

Team USA topped England, 2-1, in Tuesday’s Women’s World Cup seminfinals matchup to advance to Sunday’s championship game against the winner of tomorrow’s Netherlands-Sweden game.

Now the key question surrounds whether star Megan Rapinoe, who did not play against England due to injury, will be healthy enough for the Final.

After the game Rapinoe told reporters she was dealing with a minor hamstring injury but she is expecting to be fit for Sunday’s curtain-closer.

Despite the injury concerns, USA remains heavy favorites to capture the 2019 Women’s World Cup according to oddsmakers in Las Vegas.

The Westgate Superbook has USA at -600 to win the title, with Netherlands available at +800 and Sweden at +1000. At -600 the U.S. has an implied probability of approximately 85.5% to win the title.

Back on July 31, 2018, USA opened as +250 favorites to win the Women’s Cup and drifted as high as +350 before the start of the tournament.

As of June 6, 2019, Netherlands were available at +1400 while Sweden was listed at 28-1.

This is Team USA’s third consecutive appearance in the Women’s World Cup Final. The Yanks lost to Japan in the 2011 finale and then defeated the Japanese in 2015 for their third World Cup trophy (1991, 1999, 2015). Neither Sweden nor the Netherlands have won a Women’s World Cup but Sweden did make it to the 2003 World Cup Final against Germany.

The 2019 Women’s World Cup Final takes place at 11 a.m. ET on Sunday morning at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon, France.
