The United States comes into this Canadian Women’s World Cup as the early favorites in the gambling odds, and the German team is a close second in the pre cup ratings and power rankings this season. Aside from that there are plenty of other dark horse teams that could win it all.
The two teams with championship caliber are the USA and Germany, with the USA at +250 with two WC Titles in their trophy case. This USA team won the Women’s CONCACAF 2014 Championship allowing their opponents 0 goals while they scored some 21. The U.S. team has a solid roster with top defender C, Rampone and offensive leader A. Wambach who has 72 assists and 180 goals, while goal tender H. Solo in international games has a record of 77 shutouts to date.
Meanwhile German, the 2nd favorite at +400 is another team that has two trophies from the World Cup events, and is a team who has a great blend of talent on their roster. Their team strength comes from Ex-World Cup Player of 2014 N. Angerer their goal tender, along with C. Sasic with 57 international goals, and A. Mittag with 33 goals all who give the German team plenty of talent and firepower.
Then we have a couple of sleepers and a long shot in this Tournament. The Sleepers turn out to be host Canada and the Japanese teams. The Japan team is listed on the odds sheet at +900 going in to this 2015 WC, and a team were underdogs in the 2011 WC but won the title as the beat the favored United States team in the final. Since they won the WC in 2011 and last year the Women’s Asian Cup they come to Canada with a lot of confidence. This Japanese team has a great midfield led by H. Sawa who is in her 6th World Cup and has scored 82 goals.
But don’t overlook the host Canadians at +1400 as they have proven they can stay in the game, as the captured the Bronze in the Olympics in London in 2012 and won Gold at the Pan American games in 2011. Their star is C. Sinclair who in 222 caps has scored some 153 goals, and teams with some talented midfielders who assist her in K. Kyle, S. Schmidt, B. Baxter and D. Matheson. In their favor is their group draw that consists of New Zealand, China and the Netherlands, and not exactly world powerhouse teams.
