The 2023 World Cup kicks off in just five weeks, the U.S. women’s national team is holding steady as the favorite to win a third consecutive title.

DraftKings Sportsbook has the USWNT at +275 to win, same as it had in April, while Fanduel Sportsbook gives them slightly better odds at +250.

In DraftKings’ odds, England comes next at +350, followed by Spain and Germany tied at +650. France follows at +750, and then comes tournament co-host Australia at +1200.

FanDuel offers a slight variation, with England at +360, followed by Spain (+650) with slightly better odds than Germany (+700). France (+1100) and Australia (+1200) round out the top six contenders.

The USWNT maintains its status as the betting favorite after holding onto its spot as world No. 1 in the latest FIFA world rankings. The United States hasn’t lost that place since 2017, despite a trio of losses at the end of last year.

Germany, Sweden, England and France round out the top five in the rankings. But No. 3 Sweden faces long odds to win the tournament, sitting at +1400 on DraftKings and +1800 on FanDuel.

A number of teams, including England, Germany and Spain, have released at least their provisional rosters for the tournament. The USWNT is expected to release its roster the week of June 19.

The USWNT next takes the pitch at 4 p.m. ET Sunday, July 9, in San Jose, California, for a World Cup send-off match against Wales. The World Cup is set to kick off in Australia and New Zealand on July 20 and will run through Aug. 20.
