Some punters might be surprised by the France v Denmark World Cup betting odds, with Les Bleus trading at a reasonable degree of odds-on. This suggests that the French are more than 50% likely to claim a victory on Saturday, although there are reasons to tread carefully when it comes to having a bet on a side who don’t necessarily need to win this clash.

Didier Deschamps’ side enjoyed a handsome win over Australia, with a 4-1 victory not only giving them three points and also a solid goal difference. A draw would be a respectable outcome ahead of a clash against Tunisia in the final game and France will be wary of the fact that the Danes beat the team home and away in the Nations League.

Perhaps we’re dealing with something different here. The Nations League games were shoehorned in the domestic season and it’s clear that France have the better attacking quality, especially with Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele providing the pace and skill to trouble any opposition.

However, perhaps the draw could be worth backing here and something low-scoring could be on the cards. A 0-0 and 1-1 scoreline are potential outcomes, especially as Denmark’s opening clash ended goalless against the Tunisians. This is a match that the Scandinavian side can ill-afford to lose and it’s borne out by the odds.
