England vs Denmark Over/Under & Spread
Haiti handed England a much tougher test than expected in the opening round of games.
It took a penalty scored by Georgia Stanway to secure England’s win.
Worryingly, England has scored just once – from the penalty spot – in its last three matches.
Meanwhile, Denmark has kept clean sheets in its last four games while scoring five times.

Therefore, this may not be a high-scoring meeting.
The odds for there to be three goals or more stand at +120 (Ov 2.5). Meanwhile, the price for there to be fewer than three goals is -175.
There could be decent earnings if England finds the form which has them slated among the tournament favorites – and it busts its goal drought.
For a total of four goals or more, the price is +300 (Ov 3.5).
Among the spread offerings, England is priced at +130 to win by two goals or more (Spread -1.5).
Denmark is rated at +550 to win by at least one goal (Spread -0.5) in the England vs Denmark odds.
England vs Denmark Preview
England has become one of the most high-profile women’s national teams since its Euros victory in London last year.
It is ranked world number four by FIFA.
But it is struggling to bust out of a run of indifferent form – perhaps brought on by the weight of expectation.
It has lost only once in 33 matches under the command of Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman.
But the stumbling nature of its opening tournament win against Haiti was underlined by the fact that Georgia Stanway’s winning penalty was taken twice.
A big improvement will be needed this time out – and Wiegman is a demanding coach who can bring this recovery out of her players.
Meanwhile, Denmark is competing in its first women’s World Cup since 2007.
It is rated 13th best in the world by FIFA.
The opening win for the Danes against China was very tight – with substitute Amelie Vangsgaard’s headed winner coming in the 90th minute.
The team has won six of its last seven games and is highly rated defensively. So it is likely that this could be another tightly contested affair when considering the best England vs Denmark picks.
England vs Denmark Statistics

Rachel Daly to Score Odds
The versatile Aston Villa star Rachel Daly is the player most favored player to score in this tie at +140 – or +400 to score first or last in the England vs Denmark props.
However, she only came on as a 76th-minute substitute against Haiti and coach Wiegman usually likes to start with unchanged line-ups.
She has claimed a total of 13 goals for her country.
She scored 30 times in her 30 appearances for her club last season so Wiegman could be tempted to start her as she seeks to end her side’s goal famine.
Moreover, she has not scored for England since a 2-1 win against Italy last February.

The Arsenal forward has scored 11 times in 23 international outings. She scored 22 times for Manchester United last season before her move last month to Arsenal.
Denmark’s Pernille Harder is the player most favored to find the net for her team at +350 – or +750 to score first or last.
She has scored no fewer than 70 international goals in 142 appearances.
She left Chelsea for Bayern Munich this summer for a women’s world record fee of $440,000.

England vs Denmark Prediction
England is one of the strongest teams at the tournament and will be looking to make a statement this time out.
There is also the chance of potentially securing a place in the knockout stages after just two games.
So it is likely to claim a more comfortable win than it managed against Haiti despite Denmark’s strong defensive capabilities.
England vs Denmark Picks: England -1.5 (+130)
