2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Best Bets for Semifinal Games

The Women’s World Cup is down to its final four with two thrilling semifinal matchups scheduled this week.

Spain will take on Sweden in an all-European clash, while England will play the villain in its matchup against host nation Australia, which made it through to the semifinals by winning a penalty shootout against France.

These two games will determine the finalists in the 2023 Women’s World Cup bracket. Who is it going to be? Let’s make some picks and parlays for these matches as we take a look at both the Spain vs. Sweden and Australia vs. England matchups.

1st Goal: Spain -120, Sweden +150, No Goal +550

Double Chance: Spain or Tie -350 | Spain or Sweden -275 | Tie or Sweden -143

Spain vs Sweden Predictions and Picks

Spain continued to pepper the opposing goal at this year's World Cup tournament, taking 28 shots in its quarterfinal win over the Netherlands.

If the Spaniards were a little more efficient in front of the goal, they might have already scored 30-plus times in this World Cup tournament. Spain has demonstrated some of the World Cup’s most impressive build-up play and has the most technically gifted players at this competition. The Spanish women have been so impressive that they are now the Women’s World Cup betting favorite with what are currently the best odds to win the competition.

Against the Netherlands, Spain enjoyed 62 percent of the possession and was on the attack throughout the match. The Spanish players completed 75 percent of their passes compared to 58 percent by the Dutch. They were also able to consistently play a short-passing style of soccer amongst themselves to create openings and scoring chances.

Sweden’s approach is very different. The Swedes have relied mainly on set pieces and crosses into the box to emerge as winners so far at this tournament. Their victory over Japan was a statement game by the Swedes, and Spain will need to be wary of suffering the same fate as the Japanese.

Sweden center back Amanda Ilestedt is her team's leading scorer with four goals at the competition so far. The Swedes are extremely well-rehearsed and dangerous on set pieces, and Ilestedt has capitalized on her opportunities almost every time.

Unlike Spain, Sweden is happier to play a defensive game -- trying to keep things compact and deny scoring opportunities. Japan did a great job of that in its 4-0 group-stage win over Spain, but it was the only team that managed to keep the Spanish women from putting at least 20 shots on target.

Prior to the tournament, in our 2023 Women’s World Cup predictions, we listed Spain as one of the teams to watch. Despite their setback against Japan, the Spaniards have emerged as one of the competition’s most complete teams.

Spanish midfielder Teresa Abelleira has created 21 goal-scoring opportunities at this year’s Women’s World Cup -- nine more than any other player. Jennifer Hermoso and Aitana Bonmati have combined to create another 21. As a result, Spain has shown a relentless ability to take control of the game in the final 30 minutes.

On the eve of the semifinals, Spain is my favorite to go all the way. My Women’s World Cup prediction here backs that position, as I'll be taking Spain to win again in my all of my soccer parlays.

The Pick: Spain to win (+115)

Spain has three players with three goals apiece at this year’s tournament. Jennifer Hermoso, Aitana Bonmati and Alba Redondo have all found the net three times, and at least one of them seems to consistently find herself in dangerous positions on the edge of the box.

As one of the best players in the world, Bonmati had a ton of pressure on her entering the 2023 Women’s World cup. She has delivered for her country in the knockout rounds and furthered her case for this year’s Ballon d’Or Feminin after a superb season with Barcelona.

Sweden is solid on set pieces and at defending its own penalty area, which means Bonmati might be the difference by creating a chance from the edge of the box or flying forward as she has been doing at the competition so far.

If the Swedes take Spain’s strikers away and cover Jennifer Hermoso, Bonmati can hurt them from deeper range.

The Pick: Aitana Bonmati to score anytime (+450)

Australia vs England Odds

Moneyline: Australia +220 | Tie +210 | England +130
To Qualify: Australia +110, England -154
1st Goal: Australia +137, England -106, No Goal +500
Total Goals: Over 2.5 +150, Under 2.5 -211
Double Chance: Australia or Tie -175 | Australia or England -250 | Tie or England -300

Australia vs England Predictions and Picks

Australia qualified for its first Women’s World Cup semifinal after beating France. That win required a nail-biter of a penalty shootout in which both teams faced sudden death.

France took the first shot, so Australia had to step up and score to keep its dream alive. They managed to do it three times, with Katrina Gorry’s penalty barely scraping by after French goalkeeper Solene Durand got her hands on it.

Australian keeper Mackenzie Arnold then saved the ninth penalty from the French, which was canceled out because she came off her line too quickly, so she stood strong and saved it again the second time around. Australia then missed an opportunity to win the game for the second time in the shootout, forcing the teams to a 10th round of penalties.

Finally, Australia won, defying many Women’s World Cup betting predictions that expected the hosts to fall in the quarterfinals. The Aussies are now just one win away from making the final in their home nation. They will face an England team that’s had to deal with a few struggles of its own in this competition.

In the quarterfinals, England took on the Colombia team that stunned Germany in the group stage. Early on, the South Americans had all the best chances and they eventually took the lead.

England had to come from behind if it wanted to survive and advance. Fortunately for the English, Colombian keeper Catalina Perez blew an easy save that gave Lauren Hemp a tap-in goal during the dying moments of the first half.

Perez struggled again in the second half when she hesitated going after a through ball she could have easily grabbed, and Alessia Russo fired it past her to give England a 2-1 lead that stood up for the win.

England’s women haven’t been at their best in this tournament, but they’re still alive and now just might spoil the party for the Australian Matildas.

This one is very difficult to predict. These teams appear evenly matched at this point in the competition, but I must say I have been underwhelmed by England’s execution in more than one game. The English haven’t been as polished as in the past, and the talent level of some of the Australian players presents a real danger.

Australia will be boosted by the possibility of having Sam Kerr in the starting lineup, since the star of the show has been unable to assert herself in the competition so far. Kerr has been nursing an injury that limited her to substitute appearances in each of the last two games, but now she just might be ready to go when it matters the most.

I’m going to go with the hosts in my Women’s World Cup picks for this one. I expect talented players such as Mary Fowler and Sam Kerr to propel their country into the final, particularly given the chance to play for a championship in their own backyard.

The Pick: Australia to win (+220)

I was surprised by the low Australia-France score, but both teams created very clear chances. There were goal-line clearances and players throwing themselves in front of great chances before they penalty shootout, but was a low-scoring affair nonetheless.

This game is going to be compact. Both teams will try to reduce the opposing threat with patient possession. It feels like this one will be similar to the Australia-France game.

If you’re looking to boost your Women’s World Cup picks and parlays, consider this: England has allowed just two goals in the tournament so far, and Australia has only conceded three. All three of those came in a group-stage thriller against Nigeria. So far in the knockout rounds, the Australians haven’t conceded a single goal.

In addition to predicting a win for Australia, I’ll go with the under on total goals for the last of my semifinal round picks.

The Pick: Under 2.5 Goals in the Match (-211)

Best Women’s World Cup Semi Finals Parlay Picks (+588)

Looking at some other experts’ picks in comparison to my own, the consensus is that Australia offers great value at +220. Combine that with the Spanish to win, and you get a +588 parlay for the semifinals.

Leg-1 Picks: Spain to win (+115)

Leg-2 Picks: Australia to win (+220)
