It’s time for me to share my World Cup picks for August 7-8. Having scoured the odds for the greatest betting value out there, I’m confident that we can start the week as we mean to go on – by winning some bets! 

With high-profile European nations like England, France and Denmark headlining the Round of 16 games on Monday and Tuesday, we are set for lots of top-quality action. Plus, outsiders such as Morocco and Nigeria will be determined to upset the odds. 

I have already finalized my Women’s World Cup picks for Saturday and Sunday, so you can check those out if you wish. However, be sure to stick around for my World Cup picks and predictions for Monday and Tuesday.

England vs. Nigeria Prediction

Odds: England (-345); Draw (+390); Nigeria (+900) 

By their own high standards, the Lionesses made a slow start to the World Cup, registering narrow 1-0 wins against Haiti and Denmark. Last time out, however, England thrashed China 6-1, racking up 17 shots while enjoying 74% possession. 

Nigeria also enjoyed an unbeaten group-stage campaign, recording one win and two draws. The African side managed to defeat Australia 3-2, although they struggled during goalless draws with Canada and Ireland. 

Of course, the safe bet is the England win here, but I recommend exploring the goal markets for greater value. Since the reigning European champions put six past China last time out, I’m backing them to score over 1.5 goals on Monday. Best Bet: England Over 1.5 Goals (-184)

Australia vs. Denmark Prediction

Odds: Australia (-116); Draw (+232); Denmark (+317) 

The Aussies booked their place in the knockout phase with a hugely impressive 4-0 victory over Canada, finishing atop Group B as a result. The co-host also claimed a 1-0 win against Ireland on the opening day of the tournament, achieving the first of two clean sheets in the group stage. 

Over in Group D, Denmark experienced produced a mixed bag of results. In addition to the loss against England, the Danes edged past China and Haiti, scoring only three goals in as many group games. 

With the Sydney crowd behind them on Monday, the Matildas will be confident of overcoming Denmark. Plus, the return of star striker Sam Kerr – who has scored 63 goals in 121 games for her country – will give Australia an even bigger lift. 

Best Bet: Australia (-116) 

Colombia vs. Jamaica Prediction

Odds: Colombia (+100); Draw (+220); Jamaica (+280) 

It would not be unfair to say that Colombia and Jamaica are surprise inclusions in the Round of 16. Nevertheless, one of these nations will be in the quarterfinals, as they battle it out in Melbourne on Tuesday. 

The Colombians finished above Germany, South Korea and Morocco in Group H, taking six points from a possible nine. Meanwhile, the Reggae Girlz progressed from Group F alongside France, knocking out Brazil in the process. 

Colombia is the bookies’ favorite to advance to the quarterfinals, but the Jamaicans will fancy their chances of reaching the last eight. With that in mind, Tuesday’s showdown will likely be a close-fought battle between two spirited teams.

France vs. Morocco Prediction

Odds: France (-650); Draw (+650); Morocco (+1400) 

As the moneyline odds suggest, the clash between France and Morocco is the biggest mismatch on the August 7-8 schedule. France is the out-and-out favorite to progress, while Morocco is the clear underdog. 

However, the Moroccans have already upset the odds on more than one occasion this summer. Thanks to 1-0 wins against South Korea and Colombia, the Lionesses of Atlas finished second in Group H – two points clear of Germany. 

France, meanwhile, took four points from the first two matches before thrashing Panama 6-3 last time out. Kadidiatou Diani netted a hat-trick in the victory over Panama, and the striker will be hopeful of enhancing her tally against Morocco
