France vs. Australia Bet Builder Tips: 11/2 double makes appeal for France's World Cup opener
France take on Australia in the final fixture of Day 3 at the World Cup in Qatar. The game is live on the BBC and here at BettingOdds.com, we’ve put together our best Bet Builder tips.
France vs Australia Odds
Current World Cup holders France unsurprisingly come into this game against the Aussies as the odds-on favourites to collect three points; priced at just 1/4 with most bookmakers to do so. Didier Deschamps will be without Karim Benzema, Presnel Kimpembe and Christopher Nkunku who are all out injured and his side arrive at the tournament as the third favorites to repeat their success of 2018 at 8/1.
Australia managed to reach the World Cup finals after defeating Peru on penalties in a dramatic play-off. This will be the fifth consecutive tournament that Australia have appeared at, but they will be hoping they can perform better than the last three renewals, where they have failed to make it beyond the group stages.
France vs Australia Bet Builder Tips
The first of two selections we have picked out for our France against Australia Bet Builder tips is for Antonie Griezmann to get his name on the scoresheet anytime in the match.
No player of the France squad scored more goals than Griezmann in World Cup qualifying, bagging six in eight appearances. The Atletico Madrid man has only started seven league matches this term but has still managed five goals. A player who often raises his game for his country, Griezmann looks a better value prospect in the anytime scorer market than some of his counterparts.
We’ll also be including Kylian Mbappe to register an assist anytime in the match as part of this Bet Builder that is available with both Betfair and Paddy Power. No player contributed more assists than Mbappe in France’s qualifying campaign, with him providing one in five of his last nine starts for his country.
At club level, Mbappe has three assists in six Champions League appearances this season and has shown signs of becoming a more complete forward by having the most assists in Ligue 1 last season. This same Bet Builder double pays just 10/3 with bet365, so we’d certainly be recommending Betfair or Paddy Power with just north of 11/2 on show.
