With this being one of the most competitive fields in the Women's World Cup in recent memory, those bettors who placed a wager on the US Women's National Team to win this year's tournament no longer need to sweat out their wagers.

That's because FanDuel Sportsbook has made the decision to pay out all USWNT online and mobile futures bets to win, prior to the team's match against France later today.

USA opened as +350 favorites to win the tournament, though FanDuel Sportsbook was offering boosted odds of +400 at various times over the first week of the tournament. Their chances to win have only increased, according to the odds, since the tournament began, as they remain the favorites at +140 heading into their quarterfinal match with host-country France.

France will likely be the USA's toughest test yet, as the French have consistently had the second-best odds of winning the tournament. But, if you bet on USA to win the 2019 Women's World Cup on FanDuel Sportsbook, you won't need to worry about the outcome of today's match.

And if you happened to bet on another country to win this year's Women's World Cup, don't you worry. If another team ends up winning the tournament, FanDuel Sportsbook will obviously pay out wagers on the eventual champion.

After the sportsbook paid out $400,000 worth of pending USWNT futures bets this morning, Team USA backers no longer need to worry about the financial implications of the quarterfinal match with France. They can now take the money and simply root their hearts out this afternoon.
