2022 World Cup: Morocco vs. France odds, picks and predictions

The 2nd seminfinal matchup of the 2022 World Cup has Morocco and France meeting Wednesday at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor at 2 p.m. ET (FOX/Telemundo). Below, we analyze Tipico Sportsbook’s lines around the Morocco vs. France odds, and make our best World Cup bets, picks and predictions.

Morocco pulled off a stunner Saturday in a 1-0 quarterfinal win against Portugal. The entire Iberia Peninsula isn’t a fan of the African nation, and Morocco also ousted neighbor Spain in the Round 16 on penalty kicks.

The Atlas Lions are easily the Cinderella of this World Cup, scoring just 5 goals while conceding only 1 goal in 5 matches. They are 24th in the FIFA world rankings.

France, the defending champions and No. 3 team in the world, showed England the door with a 2-1 win in the quarterfinal. Les Bleus has been much more prolific on offense, registering 11 goals, with at least 2 markers in 4 of the 5 matches.

Kylian Mbappe is vying for the Golden Boot as top scorer with 5 goals in 5 matches, and he has tacked on 2 assists. Teammate Olivier Giroud is right on Mbappe’s tail with 4 goals in 4 matches.

Argentina and Croatia play the 1st semifinal match on Tuesday.

Prediction

France 1, Morocco 0

Moneyline (ML)

Morocco has been doing a tremendous job in this tournament, especially defensively. But this isn’t a side which has shown an ability to score, and that’s not good against Les Bleus. The miracle run is coming to an end in the semifinal against the defending champs, and that’s nothing to be ashamed about.

While France (-190) is a little on the expensive side, a play in the Double section with FRANCE AND UNDER 2.5 GOALS (+185) for a chance to nearly double up is too hard to pass up.

In addition, FRANCE TO WIN WITH A CLEAN SHEET (+105) is also a solid play at plus-money.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 2.5 (-150) is a little on the pricey side, but if you like to play it safe, that’s the way to go.

If you like to roll the dice a little, and trust a 1-0 score for the final, play UNDER 1.5 (+190) for a chance to nearly double up.
