France are seen as slight favourites to pick up third place in this year’s Women’s World Cup.
Football betting fans will find Les Bleues priced at 29/20 with bwin to beat Sweden in the third place play-off.
However, there is little between the sides as Thomas Dennerby’s Blagut are seen as an 8/5 bet to secure victory, while the draw is available at odds of 49/20.
Both teams come into the tie on the back of 3-1 defeats in the semi-final stage, but while France were seen by many as underdogs to beat Pia Sundhage’s experienced USA side, Sweden will feel a tinge of regret at not having overcome the challenge of Japan.
Before that defeat, Sweden had a 100 per cent record in the tournament, having secured victories over Colombia, North Korea, USA and Australia.
Meanwhile, France got off to a good start with wins over Nigeria and Canada, but then lost to hosts Germany and needed penalties to squeeze past Hope Powell’s England before being outthought, outfought and ultimately outplayed by USA.
With little to determine a difference between the two sides in the three-way betting market, punters could be tempted to chance their arm on a final score, with healthy returns offered on another 3-1 defeat for either team.
Sweden fans can back their team to win by that margin at 18/1, while les Bleues are priced at 16/1 to achieve the same feat.
As always, bwin has also made a host of goal bets available, with fans able to place a wager on an exact number of strikes to be produced during the 90 minutes.
Those expecting a bore draw can back no goals at 21/2, while those expecting a tight 1-0 win for either side can bet on exactly one goal at odds of 9/2.
Two goals to be scored is seen as an 11/4 bet, while three, four and five converted efforts can also be backed at odds of 31/10, 17/4 and 31/4 respectively.
While all eyes will be on the final between Japan and USA, these teams will be motivated to win to ensure they can return home with their heads held high.
