Group A Predictions: New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Switzerland

Group A presents an interesting mix of teams, with Norway leading the pack as the favorites at (-333) with BetMGM sportsbook. With a history steeped in success, including a World Cup win in 1995, Norway enters the tournament with high expectations. Their squad, boasting players like Ada Hegerberg and rising star Anna Jøsendal, provides a blend of experience and youthful energy that could prove decisive in the group stages.

Switzerland, making their second World Cup appearance, will be keen to make an impact. Their squad, led by Lia Wälti, Ramona Bachmann and Ana-Maria Crnogorcevic, has shown promise in recent matches and could pose a challenge. The team will miss Riola Xhemaili, which surprisingly didn't not find her place among the travelers to the World Cup due to lack of fitness, and Iman Beney who tore her cruciate ligament. The Swiss are currently at (+450) to advance from the group, a testament to their potential.

New Zealand and the Philippines, while considered underdogs, should not be underestimated. New Zealand's CJ Bott and Philippines' Sarina Bolden have the ability to turn a game on its head. Their odds stand at (+500) and (+25000) respectively.

Group C Predictions: Costa Rica, Japan, Spain, Zambia

Group C sees Spain as the clear favorite. With their technical ability and strategic gameplay, Spain is a force to be reckoned with. Their odds of topping the group stand at (-340) at FanDuel sportsbook, reflecting their dominance, despite the recent upsets in team structure with 15 players walking away from the national team as a sign of protest against team head coach Jorgi Vilda. Still, the La Roja, have managed to regroup and will travel as the No. 6 ranked team in the World and very promising form.

Group D sees England as the clear favorite to win the group at (-4000) with Caesars Sportsbook. With a strong lineup led by Keira Walsh and a history of solid performances, the 2022 Euro winners are certainly a team to watch. Although the team will miss Beth Mead and some other key players, England should see a deep run into the tournament and cause some upsets along the way. 

Denmark, with their blend of experienced and young talent, is a team that can't be overlooked. The Danes are back among the elite for the first time since 2007 and will be led by Pernille Harder, making her World Cup debut, the Danes are known for their tactical play and team spirit.

Group E: Netherlands, Portugal, USA, Vietnam

Group E sees the USA as the overwhelming favorite at (-350) with the bet365 sportsbook. With a world-class squad and a winning history, the USWNT is expected to go all the way. Although she announced her retirement, Megan Rapinoe, the icon of the sport, will play at the tournament chasing her 3rd World Cup trophy. The USWNT will also be led by two of the biggest stars, Alex Morgan and Lindsey Horan, but could expect a fierce battle on their road to their 3rd consecutive World Cup title. 

The Netherlands, the 2019 runners-up, is a team that can't be overlooked. Although the star of the team is the injured Vivianne Miedema, the Oranje will have great leadership in the likes of Jill Roord who scored a solid 21 international goals. The Dutch are known for their attacking play and team spirit led by the charismatic Andries Jonker. Their odds of advancing from the group stand at (+250) at bet365.

Portugal at (+5000) and Vietnam at (+50000) to win Group E, stand very slim chances of making any upsets against the Netherlands and USWNT in Group E.

Group G: Argentina, Italy, South Africa, Sweden

Group G sees Sweden as the favorite at (-556). With a balanced team and tactical acumen, Sweden is a team to watch. The Swedes have been among the top teams, reaching the semis at World and Euro Cups over the past decade, but are yet to lift the World Cup trophy. Stina Blackstenius, Fridolina Rolfo, and Anna Sandberg could lead the Swedish national team past the group stage and deep into the later stages, if not all the way!

Italy, with its disciplined and tactical gameplay, is a team that can't be overlooked. Led by Legendary striker Cristiana Girelli, the Italians are known for their strategic play and team spirit, despite their thrashing during last summer’s Euros. Their odds of advancing from the group stand at (-455) with BetMGM sportsbook, indicating a strong chance of progression.

Argentina and South Africa present a longshot bet and are somewhat of a dark horse. Argentina (+350) will try to advance from the group stage for the first time in their 4th World Cup event, while South Africa has been dealing with some boycotting internally and it will be a true miracle to see them advance at (+800).

Group H: Colombia, Germany, Morocco, South Korea

Germany is the top favorite to top Group H (-1000) and one of the main favorites to win it all (+750) at FanDuel sportsbook. The 2022 Euro Cup runners-up qualified for the World Cup with a perfect record, winning all 9 qualifiers. Sara Däbritz, Lea Schüller, and captain Alexandra Popp will lead the charge and hope to take their team deep into the competition.

South Korea will most likely depend on the outcome of their clash with Columbia to know their faith in advancing to the next stage. This will be their 4th appearance at the event and it will be seen if the experienced lineup led by Cho So-hyun (35), Ji So-yun (32), and Lee Geum-min (29) can perform miracles. If you would like to lay a bet on South Korea to advance, the FanDuel sportsbook is offering solid
