Women's World Cup: Friday DFS Breakdown

This article is part of our Daily Fantasy Soccer Cheat Sheet series.

Friday's three-game slate includes two massive favorites, with Italy coming in with -1000 odds to beat Jamaica (+2200 to win) and England -1115 to beat Argentina (+2400) on DraftKings Sportsbook.

And not only does Weir have a role on set pieces, her +310 odds to score on FanDuel Sportsbook are the best on the team; then again, those odds aren't that good (Little is +390).

On the Japan side, Emi Nakajima took three of their five corners, helping her to 6.00 fantasy points because of one shot, two crosses, two tackles won and three interceptions in 74 minutes. That level of production really didn't pay off her $8,100 salary on DraftKings, and because they are favorites again, she is $100 more. If anything, fantasy players should consider defender Risa Shimizu ($6,000 on DraftKings) after her well-rounded stat line of five crosses, six tackles won, two fouls drawn
