FIFA Women's World Cup 2023

The FIFA Women's World Cup will officially kick off in July this year. We at cannot wait to cheer on the Kiwi side. Host nations, Australia and New Zealand will each facilitate an opening match on the 20th of July. This is a thrilling year for sports fans, as the Rugby World Cup is set to take place in September as well. What does the FIFA Women's World Cup have in store for you this year?

The first two matches you can expect to see is the New Zealand team up against Group A’s Norway, hosted at Eden Park. The Aussie squad then takes on Ireland later that day at Stadium Australia. What do the odds of The FIFA Women’s World Cup hold for you as a spectator?

The Top Ten Odds Of The Women's World Cup

As it stands, team USA is a favourite for top spot in the tournament. Here are the odds for the predicted top ten teams in the world cup, as reported on WSN:

Position Team Odds
1 USA +275
2 England +350
3 Spain +650
4 Germany +650
5 France +750
6 Sweden +1400
7 Australia +1400
8 Netherlands +1600
9 Canada +2500
10 Brazil +2500

We’re thrilled to see the Australian side in the top ten. But you never know how the tournament will play out. Just ask Japan after their surprise title win in 2011. So, whom will your money be on?

Betting Stats From FIFA World Cup 2022

According to TAB New Zealand, over 65,000 NZ locals wagered on the men's World Cup last year. As previously mentioned, USWNT (United States Women’s National Team) is the predicted number one. They will be going for their third consecutive world cup win. Odds makers throughout the world believe the US is in good standing to place your money on.

However, there is also a prediction that European teams, namely Spain, Germany and France, should not be underestimated. Experts at BetUS suspect these teams may surprise spectators in the matches to come.
