The final round of group stage matches begin Monday, which means we need to take stock of what's at stake. China and Spain will battle for second place in Group B, with the winner likely securing second place, though Spain need just a draw to get there because of goal differential. Germany lead the Group with six points after two matches, and a draw against South Africa, who cannot finish in the top two, will see them finish first. While they just need a draw, Germany are the biggest favorite on the four-game slate at -1250 on DraftKings Sportsbook, with the oddsmakers expecting goals to be scored, as the over 3.5 is -118 versus -110 for the under. Spain and China figure to play the closest match, with the former a -112 favorite to win (the latter is +390). Given how important the match points are, oddsmakers are expecting that one to be very tight, with the under 2.5 goals sitting at -177 versus +135 for the over.
France are the second-biggest favorite on the day, sitting at -770, and they only need a draw against Nigeria to win Group A. Meanwhile, Nigeria could finish second with a draw and a Norway loss, though Norway is a -225 favorite against South Korea (+510 to win), and they probably only need a draw to finish second because Nigeria is certainly unlikely to beat France.
