Who will advance to the gold medal match in women’s soccer? The semifinals are set for early Monday morning in the United States. Here’s what you need to know and a look at the betting odds for gold ahead of the semis. All odds are via BetMGM.

Gold medal odds

United States (+105)

Sweden (+175)

Canada (+600)

Australia (+700)

United States vs. Canada

4 a.m. ET

United States (-145)

Canada (+375)

Regulation tie (+260)

Over/under: 2.5 goals

The United States snuck out of the quarterfinals in penalty kicks against the Netherlands while Canada won a 4-3 thriller against Great Britain. There’s not much to gain from the last two times these teams have met in the Olympics; the last game between the two was in 2012 when the U.S. won 4-3. The USWNT has had the better of Canada in the over 60 games they’ve played against each other, but the Canadians will be a formidable opponent.

Match pick: United States -145

Prop bet we like: United States to lead at half and win (+170)

Australia vs. Sweden

7 a.m. ET

Australia (+375)

Sweden (-155)

Regulation Tie (+275)

Over/under: 2.5 goals

Both Australia and Sweden were in the same group as the United States — it’s clear that Group G was the strongest of the bunch on the women’s side. The Swedes beat Australia 4-2 on July 24 and that’s why they’re significant favorites here. While the U.S. may be the betting favorite for the gold medal, Sweden’s probably the actual favorite given its 3-0 win over the U.S. in the first group stage round.

Match pick: Sweden -155

Prop bet we like: Both teams won’t score (+100)
