Group B winners Australia will meet Group D runners-up Denmark in the round of 16 with both teams hoping to make a deep run at the 2023 women’s World Cup. This is Denmark’s first appearance in the knockout stage since 1995, while Australia are making their fifth straight round of 16 match. Here are the opening odds for this contest courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Australia vs. Denmark moneyline odds (regular time)

Australia: -135
Draw: +245
Denmark: +360

Early pick: Australia -135

The return of Sam Kerr, who has had a few extra days to heal her calf injury, should be a huge boost for the home side. The Matildas have the backing of fans, especially as the lone co-host to still be alive after New Zealand’s elimination. Denmark hasn’t looked overly impressive in group play and Australia are rising in confidence. Take the home side to get the job done in regular time.

Australia vs. Denmark odds to advance

Australia: -235
Denmark: +175

Early pick: Australia -235

As mentioned above, the Matildas have the fan support and are getting significantly better with one of the top players in the world set to return. It’s hard to see them dropping this match.
