Sportsbooks tend to stay away from women's sports for reasons that remain unclear, though lines for women's college basketball and EuroLeague have been more visible this year than in year's past.
Maybe by 2023 there will be enough of an uproar for the Women's World Cup to be available to bet on in greater depth — and with much more of a runway.
