France Favourite To Win

Published on May 26th, 2014 3:47 pm EST

There will be a number of international friendlies this week as teams gear up for the 2014 World Cup, which is set to begin in just a few weeks time.

Some of the matches that are scheduled for this week include Japan vs Cyprus, Scotland vs Nigeria and Mexico vs Israel.

Another one of the matches is France vs Norway, which we'll be profiling today.

France will be using this match as a tune-up, as they will be part of Group E in the World Cup. Norway, on the other hand, was unable to make it to the World Cup this year. France will be playing in a group that includes Switzerland, Ecuador and the Honduras - they should make it through the group (they are 1.20 favourites to do so), but Switzerland and Ecuador both pose the risk of an upset, which means that France will need to tread carefully if they want to advance through the group.

France would be smart to use their warm-up against Norway wisely - let's look at the odds for this contest:

France, 1.40
Draw, 4.33
Norway, 8.00

So, according to these odds, a successful €100 wager on France would yield a total profit of €40, while a successful €100 wager on Norway would yield a total return of €700.

France has some very good players on their team - here are the players who have the best odds of scoring in Tuesday's match:

Karim Benzema, 1.61
Olivier Giroud, 1.80
Loic Remy, 1.80
Alexandre Lacazette, 2.00
Antoine Griezmann, 2.00

Tarik Elyounoussi has the best odds of scoring for the Norwegians, as he is currently listed at 4.50 to score.

Finally, here are the over/under odds for Tuesday's match:

Under 2.5 Goals, 1.65
Over 2.5 Goals, 2.15
