2019 Women World Cup Odds, Predictions, and Best Bets
The Women’s World Cup starts on Friday afternoon as host country France takes on South Korea.
The six groups are as follows:
Group A: France, Nigeria, Norway, and South Korea
Group B: China, Germany, South Africa, and Spain
Group C: Australia, Brazil, Italy, and Jamaica
Group D: Argentina, England, Japan, and Scotland
Group E: Cameroon, Canada, Netherlands, and New Zealand
Group F: Chile, Sweden, Thailand, United States
The odds have defending champions the United States as the favorite at slightly better than 3-1 with the host country France having the second best odds.
The full list of odds to win the World Cup:
New Zealand 100-1
South Korea 100-1
South Africa 500-1
A long shot pick is Brazil at 25-1 led by Marta making her final World Cup appearance. The legendary player has never won the World Cup in what is likely her last chance.
My pick for being in the final is the defending champions the United States against England. My pick for best bet is England at 6-1 led by Chelsea’s Fran Kirby. Kirby is also my pick for winning the Golden Boot.
