Moneyline pick: France -130
The French side looked like a well-oiled machine as they began their World Cup title defense on Tuesday, responding to an early Australia goal with four straight to secure the 4-1 win. Granted, they were very heavily favored to top Australia but they didn’t succumb to the upset unlike Argentina and Germany, who both lost their opening matches to lower-ranked nations.
Denmark were stunned by Tunisia as they were held to a scoreless draw in their opener, with the Tunisians even outshooting the Danes 13-11 overall. They’re hoping to bounce back and log a positive result, but it’ll be an uphill battle as the defending champs still look to be far and away the favorites to top Group D.
Back the French side to get all three points while Olivier Giroud looks to score one more goal and take over the number one spot on France’s all-time scoring list. After his brace against Australia, he sits tied with Thierry Henry at 51 international goals.
