France Versus The US
As you can see by the odds, the two favored teams are France and the US. The US women’s soccer team is the most dominant team in the league. They are currently ranked number one in the FIFA rankings. The US team is currently the reigning champion. They defeated Japan in the 2015 Women’s World Cup with a score of 5-2.
The US only had two major losses since the 2015 Women’s World Cup. The first was in the 2016 Summer Olympics when they lost to Sweden. Interestingly enough, Sweden is also a part of Group F and have +350 odds in winning the group stages. Their second loss was to France last January. This leaves the US with +300 odds of winning the Women’s World Cup.
France is currently fourth in the FIFA rankings but they could win the Women’s World Cup. This team has made it to the quarterfinals in major tournaments four times in a row. There are two other factors that could give the French team the boost they need to win.
First and foremost, the Women’s World cup is happening in France. The hometown advantage is a factor that should be considered when placing bets. There is also the fact that the men’s French team currently holds the World Cup. If the women’s team wins the Women’s World Cup, France will be the first country to hold both trophies at the same time.
With that in mind, France has +350 odds to win the Women’s World Cup. The US and French teams both have excellent odds and chances to win the tournament. The team with the third best odds to win is Germany with +550 odds. This proves how powerful the US and French teams are.
