2019 FIFA Women's World Cup Favorites

USA - +250

Typically the favorite for the majority of FIFA World Cup tournaments, the United States national women’s soccer team has appeared in four of seven World Cup finals, winning three championships. Their only loss was a heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat to Japan.

Four years ago, the U.S. routed Japan 5-2 to take the 2015 World Cup in Canada. The Americans will once again serve as favorites to win their second consecutive title. 

France - +350

Host nations always receive a boost when competing in international football competitions, but the home team has earned only a single World Cup in seven tournaments – the U.S. team in 1999. 

This will be the best chance for the French women to make their first finals. France has qualified for two consecutive World Cups, finishing fourth in 2011 and 5th in 2015. Similar to the men’s team, France’s national program have recently developed some of the finest women’s talent on the globe.

Germany - +350

The German women’s national team hasn’t enjoyed the same level of success over the past decade, failing to make the finals in two consecutive competitions. You can never count this side out – they’re the only team to win consecutive World Cups, in 2003 and 2007. The Deutsch were also runner-ups in 1995.

You can never count this side out – they’re the only team to win consecutive World Cups, in 2003 and 2007.

Seems like the rest of the football world has caught up with the German women. After winning six consecutive UEFA Cup tournaments, the team was upset in the first knockout round by the Danes, who were eventually defeated by the Netherlands in the finals.

2019 World Cup Dark Horses

Japan - +800

Don’t be fooled by the +800 odds for Japan winning the 2019 World Cup. This team has consistently beaten the best sides on the globe for the past decade. Japan defeated Germany and the U.S. to win the 2011 World Cup, and won six in a row in 2015 to make their second consecutive finals, losing to the American team.

In order to progress far in the tournament, Japan must overcome the retirement of top players like Homare Sawa, Aya Miyama and Shinobu Ono. Nonetheless, with a decent group draw, this side will threaten the favorites.

Japan Women's World Cup 2019

Netherlands - +900

Another excellent dark horse candidate, the Netherlands may enter the tournament with confidence as winners of the 2017 UEFA Championship. Prior to this big victory, this nation didn’t feature a fully developed football program. In fact, the 2009 UEFA tournament was the first major competition for this crew.

Netherlands only World Cup appearance was a 13th place finish during the 2015 edition, and they’ve yet to qualify for 2019, but winning the Euro is enough to list them with the fifth best odds to win the World Cup. No team wants to meet the Netherlands in the group stage or early knock out rounds.

England - +1100

Unlike Netherlands, the English women have already qualified for France 2019, but they don’t feature the same level of proven talent of their orange rivals. In fact, England’s women have never earned a major international tournament win. However, this club earned third place in the 2015 World Cup and landed in the semis for the 2017 UEFA championship, so they shouldn’t be taken lightly.

FIFA Women's World Cup Longshots

Spain - +1400

The Spanish national team has never featured a finer collection of talent, easily qualifying for the 2019 World Cup. This club finished 20th in 2015 and landed in the quarter-finals for two consecutive UEFA competitions, but they’re expected to potentially break out with a best ever international finish in France.

Australia - +1400

Australia’s represented the AFC at the World Cup for six consecutive tournaments. The 2019 tournament will mark their seventh consecutive appearance, but this team has never finished better than sixth. You’re probably better off betting on Spain.

Brazil - +1600

Brazilian women have dominated Pan American and Copa America competitions, winning 11 of 13 tournaments they’ve appeared in. However, the Seleção haven’t had a breakthrough globally, with second place their best finish, during the 2007 tournament. This team doesn’t have the same level of talent as previous editions, giving them a slim chance of winning it all.

Sweden - +2000

Sweden followed up an excellent Silver Medal at the 2016 Olympics with a disappointing seventh place result at the UEFA 2017 tournament. The Swedish women’s football team tends to endure inconsistency, so they’re unlikely to match their 2nd place finish in 2003 and 3rd place result in 2011.

Canada - +3300

The aging of Canada’s best players, such as Christine Sinclair, greatly reduces the effectiveness of this side. They’ve yet to qualify for the 2019 World Cup.

Norway - +3300

After performing as one of the top women’s teams in the world, Norway has dropped off as an international contender as of late. Don’t expect a miracle run in France.

Switzerland - +4000

The Swiss women’s team has never travelled deep into a FIFA or UEFA event and has yet to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, making them an extreme long shot.
