Host nation France get a serious test Sunday at the 2019 Women’s World Cup. As we noted in our Women’s World Cup bracket, they have the toughest draw of any top seeded team, playing FIFA’s 10th ranked team, Brazil.
England has a much more favorable match-up against Cameroon.
This is a tough selection day–very top heavy.
Here’s a quick look at some recommended daily fantasy plays for Sunday. Head over to DraftKings to select your Women’s World Cup Daily Fantasy plays.
Women’s World Cup Sunday Games
As we’ve been doing, before getting to recommended selections, we’ll review lines for each game. Seeing what oddsmakers think when it comes to not just the game itself, but props on total goals or goal scorers, help in creating your lineup.
For a refresher, read up on how to bet soccer. The home team is listed first. The “-” means that team is favored.
The two games to choose from on Saturday are:
|11:30am ET||England -750||Draw +700||Cameroon +1700|
|3pm ET||France -300||Draw +410||Brazil +700|
England is a heavy favorite as they should be. Their game against Cameroon is -174 to go over 2.5 goals. All of those goals should be scored by England. Load up on the Lionesses.
While France is favored and should be–this will be a competitive game. It’s -134 to go over 2.5 goals. Brazil is 100% capable of finding the net here. While your roster should almost entirely be England and France, it’s worth exploring a strong Brazil option to satisfy contest requirements that you have players from three teams.
Our WWC DFS Picks for June 23rd
Remember, it’s only 8 position spots, you have $50,000 to spend with a $6,250 average salary.
Double-check line-ups an hour before game time for any player rotations / non-starters.
- FW: Valérie Gauvin, France ($8,600). Ellen White ($11,400) and Eugenie Le Sommer ($10,900) are the most expensive forward options and one of them should be in your line-up. For the other forward spot, Gauvin is +440 (second best for France) to score the game’s first goal. For the price, that’s good value.
- MID: Gabrielle Onguéné, Cameroon ($4,000). While it’s tough to recommend anyone from Cameroon, this is worth exploring if you’re in need a low cost option to complete your line-up. She’s consistently produced double-digit points regardless of the competition.
- DEF: Tamires, Brazil ($4,000). If you’re not feeling adventerous enough to select Onguéné, then you need at least one Brazilian in your line-up. Tamires likely won’t get you double-digit points, but she’ll be active. If you need a few extra hundred dollars, Santos ($3,700) is another possibly play from Brazil.
- DEF: Wendie Renard, France ($4,800). Despite being second in FFP (15.7) among all defenders, she’s still priced under $5,000. A must play at that price.
- GK: Sarah Bouhaddi, France ($5,700): You have to select Souhaddi or England’s gk since they’ll get you 10 points for the win. Bouhaddi will likely see more save opportunities and is $200 cheaper.
- If France’s Viviane Asseyi ($4,600) starts, she’s worth a look in your midfield spot. Very productive and well-rounded performance against Nigeria.
Same for Georgia Stanway ($6,000) of England. Her minutes have increased each game this World Cup. If she starts, she’ll be productive.
- Ok with Stanway not in the starting XI, if you’re desperate for cheap England filler, Keira Walsh ($4,200) could be your play. She hasn’t produced much of anything–but she does tally consistently high attempted passes. Maybe one finds its way to a cheap assist? 🤷♀️
