Surprisingly, Denmark kicked off their World Cup action by getting a 1-0 win over Peru. The Danish were pegged as the World Cup betting favorites in that matchup and managed to get a win over their opponent all the while covering the spread. Now the team is ready to get another victory in a matchup where they are once again being favored by the odds. Accounting for their win over Peru, Denmark is now tied with France for the lead in the group. With that in mind, you can bank on Denmark going all out in this matchup in order to gain another 3 points. After this matchup Denmark will face the toughest team in the group so they definitely need to build up as big of a lead as possible.

Players to Watch: Christian Eriksen (Tottenham) and Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City).


The Aussies faced France in their World Cup opening matchup. And although they gave it their best, Australia came up short in the end 1-2. Now the Aussies have to get a win in this matchup or else kiss their World Cup chances down the drain. The odds aren’t giving them much of a shot, which likely has to do with Denmark’s brilliant defensive streak in their recent matches. Ultimately Australia might not have the offensive talent to get the win in this pairing.

Players to Watch: Mile Jedinak (Aston Villa), Tim Cahill (N/A), and Aaron Mooy (Huddersfield).
