UPDATE: The following post was updated to reflect new odds going into the knockout rounds.
The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup takes place June 07 – July 07 in France.
Defending champs and top overall seed the USWNT are part of a 24-team field. They’ll face strong competition from perennial contenders Germany, France, and Japan, as well as surging England.
Chile, Jamaica, Scotland, and South Africa are made their World Cup debuts.
The knockout round stage of the World Cup begins Saturday, June 22nd. Here are updated odds and props for the tournament.
Women’s World Cup Title Odds
The only major movement or shift in odds is that the USWNT is now heavier favorites, going to around +175 on FanDuel Sportsbook NJ. And despite the easiest path to the finals thanks to a friendly bracket, Germany dropped for +350 to +600.
|USA +170||France +380||Germany +600|
|England +700|| |
Three other countries considered more as longshots than true contenders–but who could still make some noise–are Netherlands (+1100), Canada (+2300), and Brazil (+3600).
How to Bet the 2019 Women’s World Cup
As we always write, soccer can be fluky on a game-by-game basis. Once you get to the knockout rounds, anything can happen. Regardless, here are some things worth considering if you plan to bet the Women’s World Cup.
We’ll keep this simple. The US (+175) has looked like the best team. France (+380) though is the host nation and could upset the Americans in the quarters.
Germany (+600) has the easiest path. England (+700) has been our darkhorse since day 1.
The Group stage is done, but here’s a look at what we said before the tournament started.
|Group||Favorite to Advance||Value||Analysis|
|A||France -470||France -470||While Norway (+650) is a strong squad, France is the home country and looks impressive. They’ll win the group.|
|B||Germany -330||Germany -330||We could argue that Germany has a more forgiving group than host country France. Spain (+300) we simply can’t imagine besting the Germans.|
|C||Australia -125||Brazil +130||Yes, Australia is ranked 6th by FIFA and Brazil is 12th. The margin isn’t that great though. Brazil have the talent and creativity to win this group.|
|D||England -185||England -185||Japan at +160 can certainly win this group, but England is our darkhorse pick to win it all, so -185 to win the group is good value.|
|E||Netherlands -125||Canada +110||Netherlands and Canada are essentially co-favorites anyway. Canada has a squad that can make some noise, and a group win would surprise no one.|
|F||USA -430||USA -430||Sure, the US has had issues with Sweden (+340), but the top overall seed should dominate this group.|
