Following three consecutive wins with clean sheets and nine goals netted in all competitions, Japan returns to action this Monday versus this tournament’s second betting favorite to win it all, Spain. However, the 2011 World Cup champions and 2015 finalists will be confident in claiming Group C’s top spot after maintaining such a positive form thus far.
Like their final group stage opponents, Nadeshiko Japan has already qualified with a 5 and 2 nil victory over Zambia and Costa Rica, respectively. Defensive attributes have been noteworthy as they’ve additionally kept two consecutive clean sheets in their World Cup 2023 meetings.
It will be Japan’s fourth consecutive trip to the WC knockout stage; they’re an experienced nation regarding success at this competition but will undoubtedly need to be in top shape to overcome the Spaniards.
La Roja is the sixth-ranked squad in the FIFA world rankings and the second favorite to win it all, behind the USWNT. They’ve won 3 of their previous 4 games in all competitions and have already netted eight goals at the 2023 World Cup after defeating Costa Rica and Zambia without much struggle.
Spain’s squad is brimming with talent, including Alexia Putellas, a two-time Ballon d’Or winner, and Alba Redondo and Jennifer Hermoso, who scored two goals a piece.
Women’s World Cup Group C Prediction, Odds, & Trends
The Women’s World Cup betting odds naturally favor La Roja, which isn’t surprising when considering their current position (second favorite) to lift the World Cup.
With that said, these squads aren’t likely to field their strongest starting XIs, as qualification is already guaranteed, and key players will be rested. In conjunction with two impressive defenses that have allowed no goals, under 2.5 goals at -154 is a reasonable price to get behind.
Score Prediction: Japan 1 – Spain 1
- Japan has kept a clean sheet three consecutive times in all competitions.
- Spain has kept a clean sheet in two consecutive games.
- Under 2.5 goals has landed in 3 of Japan’s previous 5 games in all competitions.
Soccer Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (-154) at Bet365

A 1-0 victory over Haiti was followed by a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Denmark, but it’s a solid back four that’s kept China’s hopes alive, as they’ll be looking to throw a spanner in the works for England’s finest this Tuesday morning.
China won’t have an easy outing, and when we look at the bigger picture, they conceded 12 goals combined against the Netherlands and Zambia prior to their World Cup outings.
Lauren James emphatically assisted England to another conservative 2023 World Cup group stage victory on Matchday 2, marking the team’s second consecutive 1-0 victory.
There was much speculation regarding England’s ability heading into this year’s competition, as the squad is riddled with injuries and several players from the European Championship-winning side have since retired. However, they’ve proved the doubters wrong so far, and although the scorelines have been tight, they sit atop Group D with back-to-back clean sheets.
However, the fight for qualification isn’t over yet. As both China and Denmark have three points. The Lionesses must draw or win to secure a position in the knockout stages – as Denmark is expected to defeat Haiti. If China beats England, the British unit will be eliminated.
Women’s World Cup Group D Prediction, Odds, & Trends
The current odds favor The Lionesses, and rightfully so. Whenever China faces a top-ranked side, they’re often dominated, and we expect England to secure another three points.
The moneyline odds on England aren’t great, but as tight margins continue to trend, backing England to win with under 2.5 goals provides some incredible value.
China and England have seen under 2.5 goals in all four of their 2023 World Cup meetings so far, and there’s a high probability that a tense encounter with qualification on the line will provide yet another scoreline with only one goal netted.
Score Prediction: China 0 – England 1
- Under 2.5 goals has landed in every World Cup Group D fixture so far.
- England has seen under 2.5 goals in four consecutive games in all competitions.
Soccer Pick: England Win + Under 2.5 (+200) at Bet365
