France vs USA predictions & best bets, Women’s World Cup preview
THE USA will face France in the sternest test of its FIFA Women’s World Cup credentials, with this quarter-final clash, to be played at Parc des Princess on Friday, promising to be a classic.
Team USA has been installed a 2.37 favourite to topple the home team, while France is considered a 3.20 outsider. The draw is paying 3.25.
We think before making any betting predictions about France vs USA at this tournament, you need to understand the dominance of the US team.
Last time the USA lost was in 2017, when Australia toppled it 1-0. Since this upset the USA has gone on a 36 – 1 – 5 run which made it a firm favourite to win this tournament.
The USA also has an imperious record against France, with the all-time record sitting at 17-3-3, but recent history may give the home team some hope, having beaten an under-strength USA team on January 19 this year, in a friendly.

If France win it will be the first time in seven World Cups that the Americans have not made the semi-finals of the Women’s World Cup. Giving the French belief is their 31-1-3 record at home, built since 2016, with their only loss coming against the no.2-ranked team in the world, Germany.
Team USA will also be celebrating coach Jill Ellis’s record-breaking match, with the respected mentor guiding her team for the 125th time, breaking April Heinrich’s mark.

Best bets: USA vs France
Ahead of each Women’s World Cup quarter-final we will give our best bets and betting predictions. Here are our two best ahead of the USA vs France clash.
Correct score betting: USA to win 3-1
Remarkably, in WWC history, Team USA has beaten its quarter-finals opponents 21-4 cumulatively, which suggests they know how to win in the knockout stage. France and the USA have been two of the higher-scoring teams this tournament, but we think the USA bats a little bit deeper through the midfield, which should see it get more chances. If the 2.37 for the win is not long enough odds for you, Team USA to win 3-1 is paying 21.00.
Time of first USA score
Team USA has remarkably scored in the first 20 minutes of four of its World Cup matches, which has us convinced we’re on a winner here. We are predicting Team USA to break the deadlock in the opening half. Team USA to score in the first half is paying 2.10, while if you’re feeling even more brave, you can back America to score in the first 10 minutes, which is paying 4.60.
Alex Morgan to score anytime
The USA forward has been scintillating at the France World Cup in limited minutes on the pitch. We expect this to change significantly in the finals, with the record breaker set to start in this one. Morgan is paying a lucrative 3.25 to score at any time in this fixture.
France v USA prediction
We just can’t bet against the USA in this one, despite the home pitch advantage of France. We predict Alex Morgan to have a day out and the USA to win 3-1.
