Posted by: Mike Davis
With international tournament kicking off next month, there’s no shortage of sportsbook players looking to bet on the World Cup. One of the more intriguing matchups of the tournament is the day two France vs. Australia matchup. Most soccer betting players might be eager to take France in this matchup and the 2 team teaser odds are predicting quite a lopsided finish. Take a look.
2018 World Cup – France vs. Australia – Friday, June 15th
When: 1:00 pm ET
Where: Kazan Arena, Kazan, Russia
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Bet on the World Cup Odds:
The Frenchmen enter this year’s World Cup with one of the best squads in international football. Specifically, Frances’ offense is good enough to start on any country’s squad. Notwithstanding that brimming talent, France is coming off a rather embarrassing loss at Euro 2016. What made it worse was the fact that tournament dismissal was on home soil. But by the looks of it, online sportsbooks are pegging France as one of this year’s favorites to win the tournament. That’s to be expected however, considering that their roster includes the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Kingsley Coman and Dimitri Payet.
Players to Watch: Kylian Mbappe (PSG), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), and Paul Pogba (Man United).
This year’s draw marks the 5th time in World Cup history that the Aussies have qualified for the tournament. The Aussies are coming off a disappointing group stage exit at Brazil 2014 and the 2018 World Cup odds are predicting another disappointing showing for the club. Tim Cahill will be making his return for the national squad. The old-timer is getting up there in age but will be looking to lend a helping hand. Despite the lopsided odds they’re facing in this matchup, the Aussies enter this year’s tournament with a good deal of talent. In fact, plenty of Australia’s men compete in the Premier League. All in all, this might be the squad to pull Australia out of the group stage for the first time since 2006.
Players to Watch: Mile Jedinak (Aston Villa), Tim Cahill (unattached), and Aaron Moody (Huddersfield).
