We are back! We’ve got Morocco versus France, and if you had told me this was a matchup in the semifinals, I would’ve said you’re clinically insane. But here we are. Morocco is the only African team to ever make it to a World Cup semifinal, and the powerhouse that is France is looking to win back-to-back World Cups. Let’s give a pick for the game.
I will stay away from the spreads and Moneyline in this match. I believe this France team will dominate this Moroccan side, but I said that in literally all of Morocco’s matches. This Morocco team has this weird magic going on, and I don’t see enough value to bet on France. I lean over 2.5 goals at plus odds, especially if there is an early goal to open the match up, but ultimately I won’t be betting the total either.
Oh, baby, we are back to picking the squarest bets. Kylian Mbappe OVER 1.5 shots on goal at -120. Mbappe will terrorize this Moroccan defense and may not score, but I believe he will definitely get 2 shots on target. Morocco will sit back and try and counter; meanwhile, France will dominate possession, and Mbappe will get plenty of chances on goal. When France has played these lower-tier countries, Mbappe has been putting up an insane amount of shots. Against Australia, he had seven shots and one on target; against Denmark, he had six shots and four on target; and against Poland, he had five shots on three on target. I know he did not hit it against Australia, but if Mbappe shot seven times, if he shoots seven times today, I will GUARANTEE he gets at least two on target.
