Australia vs Norway
Save for the 1-2 loss to France, Norway has been in excellent form. They beat South Korea 2-1 in their Matchday 3 game. In their Matchday 1 game, they dominated Nigeria 3-0. They’re slight underdogs against Australia, who lost 1-2 to Italy, beat Brazil 3-2, and then beat Jamaica 4-1.
Although both teams have played well, Norway gets the nod because of the better odds. The Norwegians could knock out Australia while the odds difference is too great. Going with the team that offers more value.

Nigeria vs Germany
Nigeria beat South Korea 2-0 and then only lost to France 0-1. Germany has looked much better during this tournament. After a couple of 1-0 victories over China and Spain, Germany dominated South Africa 4-0.
Nigeria plays solid defense, which makes this a difficult match to back Germany on the handicap. The odds are low, but Germany should win by at least a goal. Expect another great performance by the disciplined German squad.

Brazil vs France
France has looked great during the World Cup. They beat South Korea 4-0, Norway 2-1, and Nigeria 1-0. The French face a much more difficult task on Sunday versus a talented Brazilian team.
The Brazilians might be hitting their peak. After a hard fought 2-3 loss to Australia, they beat Italy 1-0 in their Matchday 3 game. Brazil can hang with France in this. The draw at +382 could be the value play.

Cameroon vs England
This is one of those soccer matches that makes it very difficult to find a solid wager. England has looked great, but Cameroon hasn’t looked as bad as the odds indicate. They beat New Zealand 2-1 and only lost by 2 to the Netherlands, 1-3.
The reason the Netherlands loss is important is because England is favored at -2 ½ -105 on the handicap. That requires England to win by at least 3 goals. The English haven’t scored 3 goals during the tournament yet. Cameroon on the handicap at +2 ¼, -126 is the play.

USA vs Spain
Everyone made a big deal about the United State’s 13-0 win over Thailand. That match is sort of meaningless because Thailand doesn’t have a great women’s soccer program. The more impressive victory was the 2-0 win against the Swedes. Sweden is a very good soccer team.
Spain has gotten better. They haven’t gotten good enough to hang with the United States. The odds are only USA -333. Great odds? No, but overlay odds. The U.S. should win by at least two, which means the handicap, USA -1 ¼, -119, makes the most sense.

Canada vs Sweden
Canada is favored in this match. It’s hard to understand exactly why. The Canadians struggled to beat Cameroon 1-0 and then could only beat New Zealand 2-0. Sweden has a real shot of upsetting Canada at decent odds on Monday. They’re the top underdog pick at the 2019 Women’s World Cup Round of 16.

China vs Italy
If China has proven anything, it’s that they’re not afraid to do what it takes to keep things close. They committed 19 fouls against Germany. They committed 12 versus South Africa, a match they won 1-0. They committed 14 versus Spain to force a 0-0 draw.
Italy is the better team, but China will frustrate the Italians to no end. There is an outside shot that China upsets Italy in regulation. However the draw offers a nice +212. That’s the way to go here.
2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Pick: Draw
Japan vs Netherlands
The Netherlands is only favored by -126 on the moneyline even though they have looked great in wins over New Zealand, Cameroon, and Canada. The reason? Japan has an excellent women’s soccer program.
Japan has drawn with Argentina, beaten Scotland 2-1, and lost 0-2 against England. Although it’s tempting to back the Japanese, it’s impossible to do so here. The Netherlands is much too consistent.
