2019 Women’s World Cup Betting Odds Preview and Tips

Twenty-four teams from all over the planet will compete in the 2019 Women’s World Cup, with France hosting this prestigious football tournament and it’s the hosts who are among the favourites to triumph.

The France Women’s football team will draw confidence from their male counterparts winning the 2018 World Cup and Les Bleus are the 7/2 co-favourites with bet365 to land the spoils.

Corinne Diacre’s team look set to go far in the competition, although their best achievement in a World Cup so far is fourth place in 2011, with France having won eight of their previous nine matches.

United States Looking for Fourth Women’s World Cup Win

The United States of America has a rich history when it comes to women’s football, with the USWNT having won three Women’s World Cups and they’re 7/2 co-favourites to land a fourth title in France over the next few weeks.

The US was pretty much the first country to embrace women’s football and create a professional league, with that continuing to pay dividends and they’ve had a succession of victories leading into the 2019 Women’s World Cup.

The USA team have been full of goals, banging five past New Zealand and there was also a 6-0 thrashing of Belgium, with Jill Ellis’ side looking strong in all departments and also set to go deep in the tournament.

Can Phil Neville Steer England to World Cup Success?

England are trading at 6/1 and they’re no longer regarded as an outsider when it comes to international football, with the FA having set the Lionesses on the path to potential glory thanks to putting an excellent structure in place.

Four years ago in Canada, the English team managed to finish in third place after reaching the semi-finals of the competition before narrowly losing to Japan, with the latter than being beaten 5-2 in the final by the United States.

Phil Neville was a somewhat controversial appointment by the FA, although there have been some promising recent signs in 2019, such as the 2-2 draw with the United States team in March, while that was followed by a 3-0 victory against Japan.

Neville said: “When we qualified for the World Cup, somebody texted me saying ‘Now your biggest job is to handle the expectation, don’t get carried away’, and all that rubbish. I was like, ‘We ain’t walking backwards now, we’re charging forwards’, and that’s why we’ve been really brave and bold in everything we’ve done. Even today, we’ve not been shy from day one of telling everybody what our ambitions are.

“[This is] what we’ve always wanted: the big occasion, the full house, Nice, Scotland, millions watching back home on the BBC. You speak to senior players, they will say, ‘This is what we dreamt about when we went to those park pitches, when we had no balls, when we had no coaches, we wanted to get to this stage in women’s football’. Now we’re here we can’t be fearful of it, we’ve just got to charge forward. That’s my philosophy and the philosophy of the team.”

Germany can’t be ignored and they’re priced at 11/2 in the betting, with the Germans having won the Women’s World Cup in 2003 and 2007, with the team having been recently unbeaten in several matches.

There will be six groups at the World Cup, with the top two from each section going through to the knockout stage along with the four best-performing teams that wind up in third place.
