The Danes will begin their World Cup campaign with a matchup against Tunisia. Then, they will contend with the French for the top of the group. Denmark will be expected to pick up all three points from this contest.
Tunisia scored in every game they played in the 2018 World Cup but failed to qualify for the knockout stage with only one win in their three matches. However, they gave England a good test losing only 1-2 against the three lions but were blown out by Belgium.
These two nations had only faced each other once before, in 2002, when Denmark won 2-1 in an international friendly.
Let’s dive in on the odds for this matchup between Denmark and Tunisia.
Denmark vs Tunisia Odds

Denmark vs Tunisia odds are current as of 5:30 p.m. EST, on Nov. 21, at Caesars Sportsbook.
The oddsmakers have Denmark to win this match, but at -175, they feel it could be a close contest. However, Tunisia’s record at the previous World Cup leans the oddsmakers not to write off the African nation so quickly.

Denmark vs Tunisia Prediction
Denmark 1:0 Tunisia
A defensive battle is expected when these two nations meet in Qatar. Tunisia will try to steal a point from the contest and put them in an excellent position to qualify from the group. Denmark competed against both France and Australia in their group at the 2018 World Cup and finished second behind the French.
Denmark vs Tunisia Betting Tips
Denmark had a magical run during Euro 2020 before losing to England in the semifinals. They made it to the final four without their leader Christian Eriksen, who collapsed during their match against Finland in the group stage.
After his short stint with Brentford, Eriksen is healthy and fully recovered now and is playing at a high level with Manchester United. He will be the critical piece in the Danish midfield who will play the connecting the backline with the attack.
Denmark likes to play from the back and slowly break down the opposition’s attack. They are very disciplined on the backline and showed that during their latest UEFA Nations League match when they blanked France.
Andreas Christensen recently suffered an injury while playing for Barcelona in the Champions League. Still, his injury does not look severe enough for him to miss out on the World Cup. However, he would be a significant loss for Denmark if he is unfit to compete.
Tunisia is also a defensive-minded team and will play at a languid pace. Therefore, this could result in a low-scoring game, with the first goal resulting in the winning goal.
Denmark vs Tunisia Best Bets
Denmark Win and Under 2.5 Goals (+210) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
The Danes should win this match, but they will be tested. The creativity of Eriksen in the midfield will be crucial for Denmark to break through the Tunisian defense.
The pace of play will be slow as both teams like to play from the back and slowly build their attack, so I like taking the under 2.5 goals in this game paired with a Denmark win.
Denmark: Keep a Clean Sheet (-122) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
Tunisia has a good defense but a below-average attack. Denmark will play four in the back, and Kasper Schmeichel has been great in net for Denmark in international competitions. I like this bet better than Denmark to win to Nil just in case the match ends in a 0-0 draw.
