2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Match Day 2 Odds & Predictions
- When: June 7 – July 7
- Where: France
Wednesday, June 12
Nigeria vs South Korea
- 2019 Women’s World Cup Odds: Nigeria +244 / South Korea +102
This should be an interesting match because both teams failed big time in their first Women’s World Cup matches. Nigeria lost 0-3 to Norway. One of the reasons for the major loss was because Nigeria only possessed the ball 43% of the time. They did take 9 shots. Unfortunately, only one of them was on goal.
South Korea had a terribly tough time versus home team France last Friday in the 2019 Women’s World Cup kick off game. The South Koreans fell 0-4 to France. The South Koreans possessed the ball only 40% of the time. They took only 4 shots with only 1 of those shots being on goal.
Although South Korea looked terrible, no doubt, they played the higher quality squad on the first matchday. South Korea should handle Nigeria in this. They’ll beat the Nigerians by at least 1 goal.
Soccer Betting Pick: South Korea
Norway vs France
- 2019 Women’s World Cup Odds: Norway +806 / France -333
France dominated South Korea in their first match of the Women’s World Cup. The French scored 4 goals and yielded 0. They totally controlled the match with 60% possession compared to South Korea’s 40%.
The French are an aggressive team. They took 13 corner kicks and 21 shots. Of those 21 shots, 8 were on goal. Frances aggressiveness could hurt them against Norway. If the Norwegians play defense and try to counter, they could get a goal on France. Norway might pull out a draw in regulation. The odds are +392 on the draw. That’s the best play here.
Soccer Betting Pick: Draw
Spain vs Germany
- 2019 Women’s World Cup Odds: Spain +303 / Germany -119
Although Germany beat China 1-0, it wasn’t a fun afternoon. The Chinese belted Germany with 19 fouls. By contrast, the Germans only fouled the Chinese 7 times. Germany controlled possession 62% of the time. They still only managed to beat China by a goal because of all the fouls.
Spain played incredibly well in the 3-1 victory over South Africa. The Spanish controlled possession 72% of the time. They shot the ball 25 times. 12 of those shots were on goal. The Spanish dominated in every way imaginable.
Germany isn’t a lock here. In fact, Spain deserves a long look to upset the Germans. The Spanish are offering much better odds than they should, making them an attractive overlay pick.
Soccer Betting Pick: Spain
