UEFA Nations League 2022 odds: How to bet Croatia vs. France, pick

June 5

France and Croatia seek its first win in UEFA Nation's League play as the teams battle Monday in Split, Croatia.

The Group A1 match – a rematch of the 2018 World Cup final – kicks off at 2:45 p.m. ET at Stadion Poljud, and can be seen on FS1.

Should bettors back France to bounce back from the 2-1 loss to Denmark, or should they favor Croatia to regain form after a 3-0 loss to Austria?

Here's how to bet the Croatia-France match — moneyline, draw, over/ under total odds and a best bet from our expert.

The match will feature Croatia's Luka Modric (Real Madrid) and France's Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), who both play in Spain's La Liga. Modric won the Ballon d'Or ("Golden Ball") and Greizmann was third in voting in 2016.

At FOX Bet, France's World Cup odds are +550 (bet $10 to win $65.50 total), third-best. Croatia is at +5000 (bet $10 to win $510). France won the World Cup in 2018, with Croatia placing third.

France's Kylian Mbappe is the second betting favorite (+800 at Fox Bet, bet $10 to win $90 total) to be the top goalscorer at the World Cup — the Golden Boot.

France is 6-0-2 all-time against Croatia.

*odds as of 6/5/2022


What does FOX Sports soccer expert Doug McIntyre say about Monday's match? Let's jump into his best bet.

"It’s understandable why France (-111) is the heavy favorite here: Not only has Croatia never beaten Les Bleus in eight all-time meetings, they’ve lost three competitive matches in a row, including two in the 2020-21 Nations League following France’s win in the 2018 World Cup final," McIntyre said.

"Croatia isn’t going to break that streak on Monday. The aging side is coming off a 3-0 home loss to Austria. But that embarrassment will force Luka Modric & Co. to play like their hair is on fire Monday, and it’s not a stretch to think they’re both capable of and due for a draw (+210 ) in front of their own fans against a French side that dropped its opener (to Denmark) and will likely be without star forward Kylian Mbappe, who limped off the field against the Danes."

PICK: Draw +210 at FOX Bet (bet $10 to win $31 total)
