England and USA are favourites to make it to the last four
At odds of 26 and only losing to Italy at 29 as the main underdogs to win the tournament, Norway seem somewhat unlikely to down England in the opening match of the quarter-finals this Thursday, 27 June at 12 p.m. in Le Havre. Oddssharkputs The Lionesses, who had a convincing 3-0 round of 16 win over Cameroon, at 2.00 stakes to prevail, whereas the Scandinavians are at 3.55 to go through.
Next up, let’s look at what couldbe the early final: USA vs France. This match, to be played on Friday at noon at Paris’s Parc des Princes Stadium, looks like a very close one. After all, on one side we have hosts France, who in addition to playing in front of their fans are displaying some world-class football.
However, opponents USA look like the toughest squad to beat so far. Morgan, Rapinoe and co are priced at 2.25 to go on to the semis, while Henry’s Les Bleues, who defeated Brazil 2-1 in a tight round of 16 battle, come in at 3.20 to take it. Or perhaps you think it could be a draw? If you decide to bet US$10 on this result at 3.10 odds, you could make US$31.
Sweden seek revenge against Germany in last quarter-final match
Saturday, 29 June kicks off with the interesting Italy x Netherlands clash in Valenciennes at 6 a.m. Le Azzurre’s performance has been surprising, since it’s their first World Cup after a long 20-year absence, and they have managed to reach the quarter-finals after defeating China 2-0 in the round of 16.
However, if it depends on betters’ opinions, they will not advancefurther as the Netherlands are the favourites to come through at 2.05 as opposed to Italy’s 3.45 chances. Meanwhile, a draw is set at 3.20.
Wrapping up the day’s matches as well as the quarter-finals of the tournament, Germany clash against Sweden in Rennes at 9:30 a.m. The Germans have been playing solidly, as Nigeria witnessed first-hand in their 3-0 defeat in the round of 16, and have yet to concede a goal.
This puts them at 1.68 in contrast to Sweden’s 4.85 odds of winning the fixture. Nevertheless, the Scandinavian side will do whatever it takes to get their revenge after Germany sent them home twice – in 2003 and 2015.
USA ahead to claim their fourth World Cup
Now let’s talk about the teams most likely to go all the way and lift the trophy on Sunday, July 7 in Lyon. No surprises here: USA lead the stakes at 2.50. The side looked nearly undefeatable in the first round. However, the Americans weren’t so convincing in their 2-1 round of 16 defeat of Spain last Monday. Still, odds favour the reigning champs and No.1 ranked team in the world.
Can France, playing at home and boasting talents like Henry and Renard stop them, and go on to win their first cup? They stand at 5.00 chances to do so, according to Oddsshark. Les Bleues are closely followed by the Germans at 5.50, who have been looking solid and at two titles, are always a force to be reckoned with.
Next up come England at 8.0, who have been upping their game in recent years and hold a third place finish in 2015 to prove this, edging past the Netherlands, priced at 9.0. Scandanavian squads Sweden and Norway come next at 19 and 26, respectively, whereas the true underdogs to take the cup seem to be Italy, all the way out at 29.
