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. The opening match of the day is Japan (-137) v. Scotland (+410), one that doesn't figure to produce a ton of fantasy points, with the under 2.5 goals sitting at -143.
Kim Little and Caroline Weir split Scotland's two corners against England, and while Little isn't that cheap on DraftKings at $5,900, Weir is definitely interesting at $3,800 after scoring 7.25 fantasy points against a much better opponent in their opening match. Scotland may be underdogs, but they should be able to hang with Japan, who failed to score against Argentina despite the latter being one of the worst teams in the tournament. 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
