Odds, picks & predictions

Netherlands: -210
Draw: +360
Portugal: +550

Moneyline pick: Draw +360

Netherlands are the better overall unit and have more experience, but are going to be without top scorer Vivianne Miedema for this tournament. That leaves a big hole in the Dutch attack. Portugal are making their World Cup debut but did have some solid results in the lead-up to the tournament, including a draw against England and a close loss to Japan.

We’ve seen our fair share of surprising results already in this competition and while I don’t expect Portugal to win outright, I do expect them to present and strong challenge and come away with at least a point. For bettors who want more value, taking Portugal on the double chance comes in at +165 at DraftKings Sportsbook.
