France enter their final Group D game knowing qualification for the last 16 of the World Cup is already guaranteed. Here’s how to bet the Tunisia vs. France match on the moneyline, spread, and Over/Under total odds.
Tunisia vs France Betting Lines
Tunisia: No firepower
With just one point earned and no goals scored in two games, Tunisia must win this clash to stay alive in the tournament and will get second place if the match between Australia and Denmark ends in a draw. If ever there was a time for a nation to rise to the occasion, it is Wednesday. Tunisia have displayed some excellent grit on defense but attacking firepower is what they need to show against France if they want to qualify.
They must beat France but that task just seems far too difficult, even if Didier Deschamps does rotate his squad. There is intensity on this side and one that breaks very quickly on the counter-attack, but the final touch is poor and we don’t expect that to change on Wednesday. Tunisia have been one of the most defensive-minded teams at the World Cup. They play with five at the back and two defensive midfielders in an effort to suffocate their opponents.
Tunisia has never advanced to the knockout stage in five previous attempts and they have a mountain to climb here so we won’t include them in our soccer picks and parlays. Coach Jalel Kadri is unlikely to completely switch around his lineup as playing a more attacking game could leave Tunisia vulnerable.

France: Already Qualified
Kylian Mbappe scored twice against Denmark on Saturday to ensure that France was the first team to qualify for the round of 16. With three goals scored, Mbappe is leading the top scorers’ chart and will be eager to add to his tally against Tunisia.
No national team has won back-to-back World Cups since Brazil did it 70 years ago, but France definitely has the squad to achieve this feat. Despite their lack of good performances this year and injury issues, they have one of the strongest squads in the tournament.
Even though France enters this game as the most likely winner of the group since only a miracle can move them from the top, we still expect them to enter the game with the intention to win. If you’re betting online, you should trust them. France can play at their own pace and pick opportunities to hit their opposition on the break.

Tunisia vs France Picks & Prediction
- Worth Betting on the Moneyline?
France enter this clash as heavy favorites priced at -190 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while Tunisia are priced at +625. So far, France have silenced all of the doubters and managed to win their first two matches. We all knew that France has great squad depth and no matter their injury issues, they have a great chance to go all the way and lift the trophy. The quality difference between the two teams is huge and we expect France to win, but there’s no value in taking them on the moneyline.
- Worth Betting Against the Spread?
France should easily cover the -1 spread at -115. It’s possible that France will find it difficult to break Tunisia down, but the African team is forced to attack from the first minute of the game because this is a must-win for them. It’s interesting to see if Mbappe will play or not, so you should check the official lineup before placing your bet.
- Worth Betting the Totals?
The goal line is set at 2½ with the under being priced at -120. Tunisia failed to find the back of the net in two games and they will definitely struggle against France’s rock-solid defense. We don’t see them scoring and we don’t see France netting more than two goals on their own, so we’re backing the under.
SCORE PREDICTION: France 2, Tunisia 0
