Women’s World Cup Daily Fantasy Picks – June 19th – England and Japan Have the Stars, But Scotland May Produce the Points (UPDATE)

Posted By High Press 10 on June 19, 2019

UPDATE: 2:15PM ET — ENGLAND ROTATED HEAVIER THAN EXPECTED

Group C proved exciting on Tuesday as Italy, Australia, and Brazil all advanced to the knockout round of the 2019 Women’s World Cup.

While it didn’t require rocket science to figure this out, we did tab Sam Kerr as an undervalued play and must-start. She scored four.

Wednesday only has two games, with Group D’s top seed up for grabs as England faces Japan.

Head over to DraftKings for you Women’s World Cup Daily Fantasy  and try the WWC $10k Starting XI. It’s an $11 entry with a $3k payout to 1st.

Women’s World Cup Wednesday Games

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 Wednesday are:

3pm ETJapan +280Draw +210England +110
3pm ETScotland -175Draw +300Argentina+490

Both games are favored to go UNDER 2.5 goals. Scotland vs Argentina, from a betting perspective, is viewed as slightly more favorable to get to 3 goals.

The point is–don’t expect heavy offensive output and chose wisely.

Remember, it’s only 8 position spots, you have $50,000 to spend with a $6,250 average salary.

With that out of the way, consider the following advice when filling out your DraftKings roster: follow the betting markets lead. Both games have “first goal scorer” prop bets and with low goal output expected, we’ll lean heavily on that.

And finally, remember to double-check line-ups at 2pm ET for any player rotations / non-starters.

  • FW: Erin Cuthbert, Scotland ($5,400). Might be the best overall attacking value on the board Wednesday. She plays a full 90, fills up the box score, and leads Scotland in total fantasy points among field players this World Cup. In a game where Scotland is favored and expected to score, she might be your most bankable selection.
  • FW/MID: Beth Mead, England ($7,200). Select her in your FW spot. Using her as a forward at $7,200 provides flexibility to fill out your roster with higher priced midfield options.
  • MID: Saki Kumagai, Japan ($5,200). Playing out of position (she’s natural defender), Saki is one of the world’s best female footballers. Just a hunch this Lyonnais steps up against England.
  • DEF: Risa Shimizu, Japan ($5,500). Can fill up the box score when she’s on, especially servicing crosses.
  • GK: Lee Alexander, Scotland ($5,100). It’s tempting to go with Vanina Correa of Argentina ($4,300), but Alexander a safer bet to concede less goals and earn points for the win.
  • UTILITY: Claire Emslie, Scotland ($8,300). Make sure she starts, but if so, is another good stat filler for Scotland.

Notes:

  • If you manage your roster spend well enough to put Nikita Parris ($9,900) in, do it. But her output hasn’t justified her price to date.
  • With Parris out, give Toni Duggan ($7,700) a look. The Barcelona forward is productive.
  • If she starts (she likely will), Ellen White ($8,700) will generate shots. Just don’t expect a lot of touches or passes.
  • If you need a cheap defensive option, check if Moeka Minami ($4,000) gets the start. Will be deep on ball attempting a high volume of passes that may unlock a counter for an unexpected assist.
