Australia in all likelihood need only a draw with Euro 2020 semi-finalists Denmark on Wednesday afternoon to reach the Round of 16. They won’t be fancied by the markets but let’s dive in and review the key prices and latest odds on this game…
The Socceroos emerged victorious from a bit of a damp squib on Saturday with Tunisia but their fans won’t care one jot as they have given themselves a real chance to reach the knockout stages. Mitchell Duke scored mid-way through the first half and despite logging 59% possession, their opponents never really looked like levelling up the game. The Aussies were well-beaten by France in their opening game but plenty of sides would be.
When it comes to their odds however, the traders and punters are not exactly singing ‘Advance Australia Fair’ from the top of their lungs. Graham Arnold’s side are 6/1 to win the game outright and 10/3 for the draw. It is Denmark who are the 1/2 betting favourites and their strong recent history is the reason why.
We’ve added plenty of new player prop bets that are available around 24-48 hours before kick-off including tackles, assists and Shots on Target. You can check out all our latest prices for this one via the Latest Australia vs Denmark Odds button below.
Denmark are currently ranked as the tenth best side in the world according to the latest addition of the FIFA Rankings. In the recent edition of the Nations League, they were able to beat current World Champions France both home and away although Les Blues got the better of them when the lights shone brightest here at the World Cup on Saturday afternoon. That 0-0 draw with Tunisia was a disappointing result and display. A performance of a similar ilk is likely not going to be enough, so expect them to up their game.
A bet I found in the PickYourPunt Bet Builder tool that I imagine is going to be an extremely popular leg is for Christian Eriksen to record an assist. The Manchester United man will be the classiest player on the pitch and he has the ability to spot a pass or cross a ball that creates guilt-edged opportunities for his teammates. At 4/1 I can foresee a few people clicking on that button.
The shortest prices in the anytime goalscorer market are unsurprisingly all Danes with Andreas Cornelius, Kasper Dolberg and Jonas Wind all priced up at 7/5. Jamie MacLaren is your top choice for the Aussies at 10/3 and it is 4/1 for Mitchell Duke to repeat his antics and double his tally for games at Qatar 2022.
BTTS is an Even money choice and for those that love playing the Over/Under 2.5 line then you’ll find both sides of this market are 5/6.
