Wednesday’s Women’s World Cup DFS slate is a mixed bag. On the one hand, this is our last split slate of the group stage. We have just one group playing Thursday and then we are on to the knockout round, where we will have one or two matches per slate. For Wednesday’s slate, you can play all four games on FanDuel or choose the early or late slate on DraftKings. For the Playbook, we have chosen the late slate. Both slates are compelling but Jamaica and Brazil in a loser-leaves-town match is just too compelling to ignore.


Women's World Cup DFS Soccer Lineup Picks August 2

Zecira MusovicSWEARG  1215.00
I was surprised to see she is so cheap on FanDuel. Sweden may not have much incentive to push for a win but I tend to think they can roll out of bed and keep a clean sheet against Argentina.
Rebecca SpencerJAMBRA390017.37722.25
I was going to play Kaylin Swart but considering they have played two of the eight games in which both teams scored, I don't trust either side in this matchup to keep a clean sheet. I don't really expect Jamaica to keep a clean sheet either, but Spencer has done it twice, with nine saves to show for it. Even if Jamaica loses, Spencer should have enough saves to return value.
Pauline Peyraud-MagninFRAPAN58007.28149.50
She may be overpriced for a full slate but if you're playing a split slate, just pay for your win and clean sheet and move along.
Chiara BeccariITARSA  159.40
You could argue this entire team is underpriced, especially on FanDuel. They should bounce back after their no-show against Sweden, and Beccari created two chances against Argentina, tied for the team lead.
Khadija ShawJAMBRA51003.98159.40
If she had played and scored against Panama, Shaw would likely be far more expensive. It is possible Brazil will be able to key on Shaw and shut her out, but I'm willing to take that bet. As much as I like Brazil going foward, I don't think their defense is inpenetrable.
Kadidiatou DianiFRAPAN980010.851917.20
Diani was much better against Brazil, finishing with four crosses, three chances created and an assist. Her teammates may have more goal upside but Diani is as safe as they come.
Ary BorgesBRAJAM860032.592153.30
I never thought I would say this about someone who scored a hat trick in the first week of the World Cup, but I think Borges is actually underpriced, especially on DraftKings. Borges led Brazil in goals, crosses, corner kicks and chances created against Panama. She was quiet against Frace but it is not as if she played terribly. I fully expect her to bounce back, especially on DraftKings.
Deneisha BlackwoodJAMBRA380010.491327.45
I wish she was a defender on DraftKings, but she is still a great value. She has double-digit fantasy points in both games. She is safer than Shaw on both sites, even if she doesn't have the same upside.
Kenza DaliFRAPAN78009.941616.70
Dali has seven crosses, two chances created and one shot on goal in both games. There is a good chance this is the game she finds the back of the net and even if she doesn't, her floor is quite high.
Wendy NatisPANFRA25002.81115.70
I'll pivot to Yomira Pinzon if I can afford to, but Natis had four clearances in both games, including three blocks and two tackles against Jamaica.
Adriana SachsARGSWE  9 
With Miriam Mayorga out, we get to play Sachs at a discount. Only five teams have allowed more clearances oer 90 minutes than Sweden, and only two have allowed more tackles + interceptions.
We can pivot to Antonia if we need to, but Tamires sent in eight crosses against Panama and I expect her to get forward quite a bit against Jamaica.
Selma BachaFRAPAN500019.981823.70
Bacha is the opposite of Deneisha Blackwood, as Bacha is a defender on DraftKings and a forward on FanDuel. She's playable on FanDuel but after her five crosses, two chances created and four shots against Brazil, she is a great play on DraftKings.
