Not sure what’s up with our picks. From Tobin Heath to Valérie Gauvin
– if we pick you, VAR will taketh your goals away.
Here’s a quick look at some recommended daily fantasy plays for Monday. Head over to DraftKings to select your Women’s World Cup Daily Fantasy plays.
Women’s World Cup Monday 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 Monday are:
|12pm ET||Spain +800||Draw +390||USA -310|
|3pm ET||Sweden +230||Draw +190||Canada +140|
The US is certainly expected to win at -310 (FiveThirtyEight has them at 78%), but the +/- on 2.5 goals favors the under.
Sweden vs Canada should be a tight, low scoring game too. FiveThirtyEight gives Canada a slight edge there (58% win probability).
With neither game favored to go over 3 goals, you need to nail your g+a selections. So if you’re confident in Alex Morgan, whatever the price ($11,500!!!), you take her.
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: Tobin Heath, US ($8,000). We’re still putting our eggs in this basket. Heath was robbed of a goal by VAR in the US’ last match. She’s got the fourth best odds of any player to score the first goal of the game (+360, just behind Megan Rapinoe and non-starter Carly Lloyd). At $8,000, you’re saving $3,500 on Alex Morgan’s $11,500 price.
- FW: Christine Sinclair, Canada ($7,800). She’s the best odds to score the first goal in this game (+450) and is at a reasonable value.
- MID: Elin Rubensson, Sweden ($7,200). Averaging 16.6 FPP and gets you points in many ways. Not just relying on goals or assists.
- MID: Julie Ertz, US ($6,000). Going off a hunch here. She’s rested, getting the last game off for an injury precaution. It’s possible she ends up starting at CB instead of mid, but I can see this being a “force of nature” game with a set piece goal.
- DEF: Magelena Eriksson, Sweden ($4,100). Critical to find some low cost producers with these top heavy pricing options. Eriksson sat out against the US and is rested. She’s averaging double-digits points. Good value in a game where she’ll be busy.
- GK: Alyssa Naeher, US ($5,700): Don’t over-think this. You’ll get 10 points for the win. Sweden and Canada is flipping a coin. Naeher is the selection.
- Alex Morgan should be fine to start. If she’s a precautionary rest, Carli Lloyd ($7,500) is a must-start.
- Last time the US played Spain, Christen Press ($8,800) had a stunner. Does Jill Ellis give her a nod on Monday?
- Depending on how you form your line-up, Sam Mewis ($7,400) has had a solid World Cup. And we’re still on the Rose Lavelle ($7,100) train. She just looks technically better than anyone on the pitch.
- If you need a cheap utility player or a third team rep on your roster, Lucia Garcia ($4,600) of Spain has the second best odds on the team to score their first goal.
