The USWNT will make their debut as heavy favorites against Vietnam in the FIFA Women’s World Cup this Friday. And at least one person is convinced that it will be an easy victory for the Rojiblancos and Azules.

A bettor at DraftKings Sportsbook placed a large bet of $70,000 (-20,000) that the USWNT will defeat Vietnam. In the likely event that the USWNT makes it happen by winning, that bettor will pocket $350, which isn’t even a full percentage of the wager’s profit (0.5 percent).

The USWNT opened as heavy favorites to win this match, and the team is also the favorite to win the entire Women’s World Cup. If the USWNT wins it all, the team would be making history by winning three World Cups in a row.

If this bettor lost, it would be considered one of the biggest upsets in betting history. The United States is betting heavily on sportsbooks, so this high roller will not be the only one losing money.

Can Vietnam surprise and finally rain down on the parade of $70,000 gamblers?

Our FOX sports betting expert Chris “The Bear” Fallica had this to say about the favorites:

“The USWNT has never failed to reach the World Cup semifinals, which should be the case again this year,” Fallica stated. “Anything short of another semi-final appearance would be both a surprise and disappointment for the favourites.”

Who knows what the $70,000 bettor will do with his likely winnings from Friday’s bet. If they wanted to, they would at least have enough extra money to buy a USWNT jersey.
