Ecuador vs France: French to Win
France has looked impressive so far in the World Cup scoring eight goals and only conceding two and they are atop Group E.
They are the betting favorite against Ecuador and can win the group with a win or draw.
Ecuador is tied with Switzerland with three points in group play and they really need a win with the Swiss being big betting favorites facing Honduras in their last group match.
Bovada has the French as the World Cup betting favorite posted at -118 and Ecuador posted at +240 and a draw line of +270.
Ecuador’s defense really has to worry about French striker Karim Benzema, who not only has three goals so far, but has two assists as well.
Two of the three goals Ecuador has scored in the World Cup have some off set pieces.
Ecuador MF Enner Valencia has scored three goals in the two group matches, which is surprising since he had no goals in South American qualifying. He is key in this match and his squad must pounce on counter-attack chances.
France has been solid all over the pitch in their first two matches, but their offense has been in form. Benzema, Mathieu Valbuena, and Oliver Giroud are three strikers that have been all around the box in the World Cup and Ecuador has a tall task keeping this trio from finding the back of the net.
With the Swiss favored facing Honduras Ecuador really needs three points with a win, but they will not get it. France will continue their impressive run with a win over Ecuador and they will win the group in the process.
