Even though the United States Women's National Soccer Team was shaky in its 2-1 win over Spain in the Round of 16, the oddsmakers firmly believe that the Americans are still the team to beat in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.

USA (+140) remains the favorite to win the tournament, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, heading into a European-heavy quarterfinal round.

The next stop for Team USA is a Friday afternoon match with host-nation France, the team with the second-best odds (+370) to win this year's Women's World Cup. With a win over France, USA will make its record eighth straight World Cup semifinals appearance.

The other quarterfinal on Team USA's side of the bracket features England (+650) and Norway (+2600).

On the opposite side of the bracket, Germany (+470) takes on Sweden (+2700) and the Netherlands (+800) battles Italy (+2500) on Saturday.

With one of the two favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, getting eliminated on Friday afternoon, there's sure to be a shift in the odds once the final four teams secure their spots in the Women's World Cup semifinals.
