The Best 2024 Olympic Games Soccer Predictions Are Here

If we’ve ever dropped a batch of expert football betting tips that we can truly call indispensable, it would have to be our 2024 Olympic Games soccer predictions. That’s simply because the Olympics occupies a curious niche in international soccer that creates a real headache for anyone trying to put together an accurate score prediction.

For those not clued into the dynamics that complicate our Olympic Games soccer predictions, there are two main conflicts of interest that go on. The first is between FIFA and the Olympics. The second is between individual clubs and their players’ home countries.

The first of these conflicts has seen FIFA impose an age limit on the players who can compete at the Olympic Games. FIFA’s reasoning is that it doesn’t want the Olympic Games to compete with the venerable World Cup and its prestigious place in world soccer. As such, for our 2024 Olympic Games soccer predictions, teams will be mainly composed of U24 players, with just 3 players over 24 allowed on each team.

As for the conflict between individual clubs and their players’ home countries, that comes down to player condition. Understandably, with the Olympic Games taking place just weeks ahead of the official 2024-25 season kick-off for major soccer leagues like the Premier League and La Liga, many clubs want to preserve their most valuable players. That means we won’t be seeing some of the bigger names like Kylian Mbappé or Lionel Messi representing France or Argentina at this year’s Olympic Games.

Taken together, these two major conflicts mean that making any halfway decent Olympic Games soccer predictions requires an intimate knowledge of the relative “nobodies” that will make up each country’s respective teams.

Fortunately, our expert sports analysts have poured over the data from each player and country for you to come up with the most accurate Olympic Games soccer predictions anywhere in the world.

And yes, as is always the case whenever we commit to covering a league or event, we’ll be providing full coverage of each and every game 100% free right here on CXSports. All you have to do is track down the prediction you’re looking for (you’ll find them all in chronological order above), read it, and then take one of three options.

Betting Options For the 2024 Olympic Games Football Predictions

As we just said above, once you’ve found the Olympic Games soccer prediction that you were looking for, you’ll have three options. Here they are in order of worst to best.

The first Olympic Games betting option is to simply sit the match out. But unless you’re reading all of our Olympic Games score predictions and cherry-picking the best, that would kind of defeat the purpose of coming here in the first place, wouldn’t it?

The second best option, of course, would simply be to head straight to your favorite sportsbook and place your bets straight away. There’s nothing wrong with this, and you’ve still got equally good odds of coming out a winner if you take this route.

But as we say around here, why win once if you can win twice? So here’s the third option — the option you should probably take before betting on our free Olympic Games predictions:

Olympic Games Football FAQ

Before we get into more details about how to use our Olympic Games soccer predictions, here’s a quick FAQ on the Olympic football tournament itself for anyone needing to get up to speed.

When was football first included in the Olympic Games?

Football was first included in the Olympic Games in 1900. It has featured at every Olympic Games except for the very first edition in 1896.

How is the Olympic football tournament different from the FIFA World Cup?

The Olympic Football Tournament has a couple of key differences when compared to the FIFA World Cup:

  • The men’s Olympic tournament has age restrictions — all but three players per team must be born on or after 1 January 2001.
  • The Olympic tournament includes just 16 teams compared to the World Cup’s 32.

How is the Olympic football tournament structured?

The Olympic Games football tournament is structured similarly to the World Cup and other popular international football tournaments like the Copa America and Olympic Games. That is, it starts with a group stage where the top two teams from each group will progress to the knockout rounds. After that, teams are eliminated in each successive round until we’re left with the final contenders.

Which teams are playing at the 2024 Olympic football tournament?

There are 16 sides representing their respective countries in the 2024 Olympic Games football tournament. Those teams and their respective groups for the group stage are as follows:

  • Group A: France, Guinea, New Zealand, USA
  • Group B: Argentina, Iraq, Morocco, Ukraine
  • Group C: Dominican Republic, Egypt, Spain, Uzbekistan
  • Group D: Israel, Japan, Mali, Paraguay

Where will the Olympic football tournament be held?

While the 2024 Olympic Games are based in Paris, there will be sporting events hosted all over France. The Olympic football tournament is no exception, with matches to take place at no less than seven different cities dotted all over the country. Those cities and the stadiums are:

  • Paris: Parc des Princes 
  • Bordeaux: Stade de Bordeaux
  • Nantes: Stade de la Beaujoire
  • Lyon: Stade de Lyon
  • Marseille: Stade de Marseille
  • Nice: Stade de Nice
  • Saint-Etienne: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard

Can professional footballers compete in the Olympics?

Technically, there are no limitations on professional footballers taking part in the Olympic games aside from the FIFA age restrictions. With that said, many professional footballers won’t be present at the 2024 Olympics due to their professional commitments. For example, two of the sport’s biggest stars, Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi, won’t be at this year’s Olympic football tournament due to their respective teams wishing to keep them fresh and injury-free for the upcoming European soccer season.

Is FIFA involved in the Olympic football tournament?

Yes, FIFA is heavily involved in the Olympic football tournament, primarily to help ensure the tournament is aligned with international standards and regulations.

Which teams are the most successful in the Olympic football tournament?

Historically, the two best-performing teams in the Olympic football tournament are Great Britain and Hungary, with three wins each. They’re closely followed by Argentina, Brazil, the Soviet Union, and Uruguay with two wins each. Rumor has it that the Soviet Union won’t be taking a third win any time soon, but we could easily see Argentina, Brazil, or Uruguay join Great Britain and Hungary this year. Or maybe we’ll see a new team join the multiple winners list.

2024 Olympic Football Tournament Betting Tips

So you came here looking for all the best betting tips and 2024 Olympic Games football score predictions? Lucky for you, they’re all just a scroll or a click away.

For the full listing of every prediction we’ve got live, see the top of this page for the full listing. Or, check out our weekly betting tips roundup for a quick overview of everything happening this week delivered in a quick, bullet-pointed format that’ll get you up to speed in the blink of an eye.

As for those of you who want to go a bit deeper, whether that be optimizing your betting strategy or getting a better idea of what to look out for when calculating the odds of a match, we’ve got a quick guide here that will answer all your questions.

Olympic Football Tournament Betting Tip #1: Get to know the players

Because FIFA has its petty non-compete rules restricting the makeup of each team, you can’t rely on each country’s performance in the regular FIFA/UEFA/Concacaf/etc tournaments. Quite simply, these aren’t the same teams, despite sharing the same country name.

That means there’s only one good way to get ahead of the odds and get a good handle on how each Olympic Games football prediction will play out — get to know the players on each team.

Fortunately, most of the players competing at the 2024 Olympic football tournament are, for the most part, already professionals, even if they’re only competing in domestic tournaments for now. That means we’ve got a wealth of stats to draw on to help weigh up what the relative strengths of each team will be.

Of course, the players only make up one part of the team, and a thousand other factors all come together to influence how a match will play out. However, if you give a random group of amateurs the best coaches, tactics, and a superior strategy, they’ll still struggle to measure up compared to a rag-tag group of pros with zero coaches and no team spirit. That means getting to know the players is #1 in making your Olympic football predictions.

Olympic Games Soccer Predictions Tip #2: Get to know the teams

While we did just say above that you can’t depend on each team’s performance in other tournaments as a reliable indicator of their likely performance in the Olympics, it’s still a good idea to take a close look at it. While we can’t expect the exact same team to turn up come game time, many of the same people and structures will be supporting the team behind the scenes.

Naturally, you can expect a lot of this to spill over onto the field. Everything from training regimes to team spirit and the tactics they bring on game day will be influenced by the same people looking after the regular national team. And, as such, you can certainly expect more than a few similarities between the Olympics team and the regular national teams we see in regular FIFA, UEFA, and other international football tournaments.

Olympics Football Betting Tip #3: Optimize your betting strategy

While there’s nothing wrong with using our free 2024 Olympic Games soccer predictions to place a few simple bets, there’s so much more you can do besides placing a fixed dollar amount on a winner.

For example, if you’re looking to maximize your winnings, there are a thousand strategies you can use, from sizing your bets appropriately to leveraging alternative bet types depending on the expected outcome of a game and the odds on offer.

Soon, we’ll take a closer look at some of these strategies and Olympic Games bet types. But for now, it’s enough to know that there are a thousand ways to get even more from your betting dollar.

Olympic Games Football Betting Strategy Guide

Alright, so you wanna quit the amateur leagues and become an Olympic football tournament betting pro? 

The first step is obviously to load up our 2024 Olympic Games soccer predictions for every match you want to bet on. They’re free, accurate, and available for every single match in this year’s tournament, so just scroll up, check out the list, and you’ll be sure to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Now you have your free sports predictions in hand, the second step, which we’ll now cover briefly, is to level up your betting strategy. And the best way to do this is to first get acquainted with all the different bet types available to you.

So here’s a quick look at the different bet types you should find at most sportsbooks.

  • Olympic Games 2024 Moneyline Bets: When you think about betting on a sports game between two teams, moneyline bets are usually the default for your everyday bettor. Quite simply, a moneyline bet is where you drop a chunk of change on the likely winner. If that team wins, you win.
  • Olympic Games 2024 Point Spread Bets: Olympic Games point spread bets are, in many ways, not that different from a moneyline bet. The main difference is that the underdog team will receive a “handicap” by which the favorite must win. If the favorite fails to make the winning goal margin, then for the purposes of a point spread bet, they would lose.
  • Olympic Games 2024 Over/Under Bets: While our Olympic Games 2024 football predictions are usually about picking the winners, we also give accurate score predictions with each. That makes over/under bets a great way to mix things up — all you have to do is bet on whether a certain number of goals will be scored in the game.
  • Olympic Games 2024 Double Chance Bets: A double chance bet is more or less exactly what’s written on the tin. That is, you get to pick two possible outcomes for a game, doubling your chances of winning.
  • Olympic Games 2024 Prop Bets: Prop bets on the Olympic Games 2024 are a fun way to take a break from the ordinary bet types. With a prop bet, you get to bet on different events in a game, like the first team to score in a match.

This is just a quick overview, so if you’re still a little confused, fear not. We’ll soon go into detail about each bet type and the different strategies you can use to maximize your winnings from our 2024 Olympic Games soccer predictions.

Olympic Games 2024 Moneyline Bets

For the most part, when you’re betting on our 2024 Olympic Games soccer predictions, a regular moneyline bet is all you need to get the most out of your betting dollar. As you already know, the only thing you need to do here is pick the winner (which we’ve already done for you) and wait for the outcome of the game. If your chosen team wins, you win.

With that said, as simple as the moneyline bet is, it does come with some weird odds calculations to complicate matters. Even if we simplify things down to one odds system (there are multiple systems in use around the world), things aren’t always as clear as they should be.

Of course, that doesn’t mean the odds are that complicated to work out. So let’s take a look at the American odds system as an example to show just how easy it can be.

Understanding Olympic Games 2024 Moneyline Odds 

Generally speaking, when you look at the odds for a game, you’ll find there’s a favorite and an underdog. Sometimes this will result in a massive difference in odds, but some more closely contested matches might end up with some tight odds.

Obviously, the more a team is the favorite to win, the less you stand to win if you back that team with a moneyline bet. But just how much you stand to win is a question that comes down to the specific Olympic Games football odds on offer when you place your bet.

Here’s how to calculate those odds and your eventual payout with the American odds system.

Example Olympic Games 2024 Moneyline Bet

Imagine you want to bet on a France vs Guinea game. When you log on to your favorite bookmaker (or check the odds with our Bet Now links), your bookmaker offering -125 for France, and +175 for Guinea. In this case, France is the favorite according to the odds, and Guinea is the clear underdog.

When it comes to calculating your payout, you will need to do the following.

  • If you bet on France, you’ll get odds of -125. In practice, that means you need to bet $125 to win $100. With that said, you don’t have to bet in lots of $125 — all bet amounts are fair game, and you simply use the ratio between bet size and payout to work out your winnings. For example, if you bet $80 on France and they win, your winnings will total $64, giving you a total payout of $164.
  • If, on the other hand, you backed Guinea at +175 to win, your payout calculation will work in reverse. That is, you’ll win $175 for every $100 you bet on Italy. And, once again, you’re not obliged to bet $100 at a time. As above, you simply take the fraction of $175 over $100 and multiply by the dollars you bet. For example, if you bet $80 on Guinea, you’ll win a total of $1.75 for every dollar you bet, giving you a win of $140 and a total payout of $240.
When to Place 2024 Olympic Football Tournament Moneyline Bets

In most cases, our Olympic Games 2024 predictions will point to a clear winner. This is the perfect time to use a moneyline bet to lock in a quick win.

Of course, while it’s hard to go wrong with an Olympic football moneyline bet, there are some good reasons to think twice before going this route.

For example, if our Olympic Games score predictions give equal odds to two outcomes in a game (e.g., a win for one side or a draw have equal odds), then you might be better with a double chance bet. Alternatively, if there’s a clear favorite and the odds at your favorite sportsbook won’t leave you with a big winning margin, then maybe a points spread bet might be the better option.

We’ll take a look at both of these (and more) now.

Placing Point Spread Bets With Our Free 2024 Olympic Games Soccer Tips and Picks

After a moneyline bet, the next most logical bet type is what’s known as a points spread bet. Here, your sportsbook will handicap the underdog team by a given goal margin, or “point spread”. If the underdog can keep their losing margin to within the point spread, then they will have won for the purposes of the bet

This makes our Olympic Games 2024 predictions a perfect match for this bet type, even if your patriotic duty meant you really wanted to bet on our predicted loser.

How Olympic Games 2024 Point Spread Bets Work

To show how a point spread bet works, let’s use an example match: Argentina vs Morocco. Obviously, Argentina should be the hot favorite to win. But the real question might be, can they win by more than two goals?

If you think they can and will manage a multiple-point win over Morocco, then a point spread bet could be an excellent way to go. Alternatively, if you think Morocco will hold Argentina to a single goal point spread, then a points spread bet could also be a good option. The only thing that changes is which team you back.

When to Use Olympic Games 2024 Point Spread Bets

Quite often our Olympic Games 2024 predictions do more than just call out a clear winner — they’ll also predict a considerable goal margin for the winner. This is the perfect time to jump at the chance for a compatible point spread bet.

On the other hand, if we call a tight game with a single goal making the difference, then keep your eyes out for point spread bets where you can back the “losing” side. For example, if we predict a 3-2 score for a France vs Morocco game and your sportsbook’s offering a 2-point spread, backing Morocco could pay out handsomely.

Over/Under Bets Using Our Olympic Games 2024 Score Predictions

As all of our Olympic Games soccer score predictions give you the expected goal total for each and every match, an over/under bet can be a good way to get a quick win without having to back any particular side.

That’s because these bets are based on nothing more than the combined goal tally for a given game — it doesn’t matter who scored or when. All that matters is that both teams made a combined score that was over or under a particular threshold.

How Over/Under Bets Work

Usually, over/under bets at a sportsbook are based on a target number around which you can either bet “over” or “under”.

For example, let’s say we predict an Egypt vs Span game will end 4-1. That would mean a total of 5 goals will be scored in this match.

Now let’s say you head to your sportsbook and you see an over/under bet with a goal target of 4.5 — since 5 goals is more than 4.5, you would place an “over” bet. If, however, you saw a goal target of 5.5, you would place an “under” bet since the expected 5 goals in the match is less than 5.5.

Olympic Games 2024 Double Chance Bets

Quite often you might see our Olympic Games football predictions give an equal chance to two of the three possible outcomes for a game (team 1 wins, team 2 wins, and draw). If you see this, another great bet option is to place a “double chance” bet.

Here’s how it works.

How Olympic Games 2024 Double Chance Bets Work

2024 Olympic football tournament double chance bets work a lot like regular moneyline bets. The only thing that changes is that instead of picking a single outcome (i.e., a single winner), you pick two possible outcomes.

To demonstrate how this works, let’s imagine we get to the final rounds and there’s a France vs Argentina match. You can then go to your sportsbook and, for example, bet on “France to win or draw”. That way, your bet will win so long as Argentina doesn’t, even if the match is drawn.

When to Place Double Chance Bets With Our Olympic Games Predictions

Using our 2024 Olympic football tournament predictions, the best time to place a double chance bet is anytime our expert analysts give equal odds for more than one outcome for a game. Just be aware that your payout if the favorite wins will generally be lower than it would have been if you’d just placed a straight-up moneyline bet, so maybe save this one for truly “too close to call” games.

Olympic Games 2024 Prop Bets

If you’re looking to bring a little more spice into your Olympic Games betting, prop bets are a great way to break out of the “winners and losers” rut and bet on some alternative things instead.

For example, you could potentially bet on who will score the first goal in a game. Or who will get the first yellow card. Or how many corners there will be in a game. Or whether the game will remain goalless before halftime. Or… you get the point. There are a thousand and one things you can bet on — the only real limit is the imagination of your sportsbook and its willingness to offer a market for it.

Winning With 2024 Olympic Football Tournament Prop Bets

As we tend toward giving accurate football score predictions more than anything else, our 2024 Olympic Games soccer betting tips aren’t usually the best match for prop bets. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some occasions when our predictions line up with a prop betting opportunity..

For example, let’s say we predict a Span vs Uzbekistan game will end in a 3-0 scoreline, and your sportsbook is offering a market for which team will score first. Obviously, if Uzbekistan isn’t expected to score while Spain is expected to kick three goals, you’d be making a solid bet if you backed Spain to score first.
