Australia is fifth favourite to win the Women’s World Cup, but loyal punters are right behind the Matildas.
Online bookmaker Sportsbet has priced the Matildas at $10 and are easily the best supported, with four times the cash than any other nation. Australia was thumped 3-0 in their friendly against the Netherlands, who are $11.
France and the USA are equal favourites on $4.33 ahead of Germany ($6.00) and England ($7.00).
The Matildas are $1.67 to win their tournament opener against Group C rivals Italy ($5.00) on Sunday and $1.83 to top the group. Matilda’s striker Sam Kerr is $10 to be named player of the tournament.
“A loss in a friendly is no big deal for the Matilda’s, if anything it will knock out any complacency. Our girls have proven themselves to be a world class outfit. If luck can go our way the Matilda’s have a great chance to go very deep in the tournament,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s
