FOX Sports gambling expert Chris “The Bear” Fallica is going against the favorites for his 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Golden Boot winner predictions.
Sweden’s Fridolina Rolfö Offers Longshot Value
Rolfö is one of Fallica’s longshot picks to outperform expectations. She brings big game experience from her UEFA Champions League winning goal for Barcelona. Rolfö was also tied as Sweden’s leading scorer in World Cup qualifying. With more chances against weaker group stage opponents, she could tally goals if Sweden makes a deep tournament run.
France’s Eugenie Le Sommer Seeks Historic Finish
At age 34, some question if Le Sommer can still compete. But with 84 career international goals, the French veteran is poised to cement her legacy as France’s greatest ever scorer. Her technical quality and scoring instincts remain sharp, especially with younger stars like Katoto and Diani commanding attention.
England’s Alessia Russo Building on Euros Breakout
After her audacious backheel goal at Euro 2022, Russo gained fame and confidence for England. While veterans like Ellen White get focus, the 23-year-old Russo should receive scoring chances. Her aggressive mentality suits the World Cup stage and could produce more fireworks.
Betting on Longshots Offers Big Payout Potential
Fallica’s longshot picks have opportunities for large payouts if they can recapture top form in Australia. By identifying players primed to outperform expectations, Fallica sees value betting on experience and scoring pedigree rather than just the favorites.
Rolfö, Le Sommer and Russo all offer intriguing upside if given the chance to shine. Their odds indicate betting on them represents a calculated risk, but the potential rewards make them wise picks by Fallica’s estimation.
