Cameroon vs New Zealand Expert World Cup Picks Against the Spread 6/20/2019
Women's World Cup
Thursday, June 20, 2019
Stade de la Mosson
Cameroon will head to Stade de la Mosson when they face New Zealand on Thursday, June 20, 2019 in a Women's World Cup matchup. The opening line for this game has Cameroon priced at +187 and New Zealand coming in at +121. The bet for a draw is +214.
On Thursday afternoon, Cameroon will be taking on New Zealand in the teams' final game of Group E play. Cameroon has yet to pick up any points at this year's World Cup, yet they still have a slim chance of making it to the knockout stages. New Zealand is also winless through two games, losing to Canada and the Netherlands by a combined score of 3-0. This should end up being a very close match, though New Zealand will be the slight favorites.
Cameroon just hasn't been able to get their offense going so far in this World Cup. They did play well defensively against Canada, giving up just one goal to a very potent attack, but in they struggled to maintain possession of the ball in that game and the one against the Netherlands. They will need to be a bit more proactive in this matchup versus New Zealand if they want any chance of coming away with all three points.

Key Players for Cameroon:
Gabrielle Onguene - The 30-year-old striker hasn't seen much of the ball in the first two games of group play, yet she was still able to find the back of the net in that game against the Netherlands. That goal gave her three World Cup goals in just six total appearances, so it's no surprise that she is looked at as the most likely scorer for this Cameroon side. There's a good chance that she will see even more of the ball against New Zealand and this could easily end up being a multi-goal performance for her.
Gaelle Enganamouit - Enganamouit was able to score three goals at the 2015 World Cup, so you know that she will be itching to get on the scoresheet now that she is finally not going up against a top defensive unit. The Malaga striker should line up by herself up front again, which should put her in a good position to get some chances if Cameroon can control possession in this game.
New Zealand deserves some credit for only giving up a total of three goals in this World Cup despite being outshot 39-9, but the truth is that they didn't give themselves much of a chance in those games against the Netherlands and Canada. Head coach Tom Sermanni will know that they have pretty much no chance to make it to the knockout stages, but he'll want to see his players work hard to earn spots on the team for future tournaments.
Key Players for New Zealand:
Rebekah Stott - New Zealand plays with a more defensive approach, so Stott will once again have to step up and play well on Thursday. The 26-year-old also plays an important role on New Zealand's corner kicks and you can be sure that she'll be looking to score again after putting one in the back of the net at the last World Cup.
Rosie White - It's pretty obvious that New Zealand thinks White is an important player as they continue to move her around in the formation to put her in positions to do damage. The forward has 24 goals in 100 career international appearances, but she's also one of the more creative players on the team.
