Lionesses tipped for exit – but nation are backing them

July 1st, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

Bookmakers do not think that England are going to make the World Cup finals – with USA firm favourites to beat them in the semi-finals, but the public are getting behind Phil Nevile’s side.

USA have been odds-on favourites from the start of the tournament and they have looked very strong on their way to the last four – which included beating hosts France in the last eight.

England stand in their way and despite the USA being odds-on for the win, Bookmakers are reporting huge amounts coming for the Lionesses – but they remain 16/5 to win on Tuesday in Lyon and are currently 4/1 to lift the trophy.

However, should England win – then they are favourites to take the title ahead of the Netherlands and Sweden who face each other in the other semi-final.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “England have a tough task on their hands, but this is almost like their final as if they do defeat the odds and win, then they are are firm favourites to go on and take the title.

“USA are a short price to win the game at 5/6, but Bookmakers are fearing England at 16/5 – this is the biggest women’s match in betting history and the vast majority is coming for Phil Neville’s side.

“Gareth Southgate’s men fell at the semi-final stage last summer, but the nation are hoping Lionesses can become England’s first senior world champions since 1966.”

Selected odds:

Semi-final 
England win 16/5 USA win 5/^

To lift World Cup
USA – 8/11
England – 4/1
Netherlands – 5/1
Sweden – 15/2
