France enters this match as heavy favorites on the moneyline and spread on FanDuel Sportsbook’s odds. This Tuesday clash also features a total of 2.5 goals, with the over favored at -134 odds.
It’s hard not to back the reigning champions here. France enters as the No. 4 team in FIFA’s world rankings and boasts a roster full of young phenoms and experienced veterans. Kylian Mbappé, Olivier Giroud, and Antoine Griezmann are just three of the many stars France has ready to go Tuesday.
These two teams faced off in 2018 and France came out on top by a score of 2-1. However, Australia was never truly in the match as its only shot on goal came via a penalty. Look for head coach Didier Deschamps to have his boys motivated as a win would put France in the driver’s seat in Group D.
