Top 5 Favourites for the Women Ballon d’Or 2023

Here are the five favourites for the Women Ballon d’Or in 2023 according to the bookmakers…

Aitana Bonmati

Atop all power rankings for the 2023 Ballon d’Or Feminin, Aitana Bonmati is set to make it three straight wins for Barcelona players after Alexia Putellas went back-to-back.

Starring in Barca’s treble-winning side before leading Spain to improbable World Cup glory, Bonmati is the consensus best player in the world right now and looks a lock to top the voting. No player contributed to more goals in Barcelona’s Champions League run.

In an immensely decorated career, the 2022-23 season was Bonmati’s best from a personal and team perspective. It’s only right that is capped off with the Ballon d’Or Feminin.

Olga Carmona

Olga Carmona has had a spectacular 2023. First scoring a late winner against Sweden in the semi-final and then providing the only goal of the game in the final, Carmona starred as Spain lifted the World Cup.

At club level, Carmona also impressed, even if Real Madrid had a frustrating season, finishing second in the league and losing the Copa de la Reina final to Atletico. Carmona, though, still looks likely to finish in the top five of Ballon d’Or in her first year as a nominee.

Mary Earps

Goalkeepers tend to be forgotten about when it comes to Ballon d’Or voting. Mary Earps should be an exception this year after a brilliant season for club and country.

Earps won the Women’s Super League Golden Glove following an excellent campaign between the sticks for Manchester United, which saw them win their first ever FA Cup final and push Chelsea all the way in the league.

Hitting the headlines due to Nike’s decision not to sell England goalkeeping shirts before the World Cup, Earps again delivered when it mattered most for her country. She also became the first English woman to win the Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper Award.

Sam Kerr

A perennial Ballon d’Or Feminin contender and coming off consecutive third-place finishes, Sam Kerr is in the mix once again in 2022-23. Kerr delivered when it mattered most for Chelsea last season, scoring crucial goals in the FA Cup final and on the final day of the league campaign.

Unfortunately, a calf issue limited Kerr’s impact in a home World Cup. She still managed to contribute in the knockout rounds, however, scoring in the quarter-final shootout win and producing one of the greatest goals in World Cup history against England.

Asisat Oshoal

Five-time African Footballer of the Year Asisat Oshoala is priced at 33/1 to win the 2023 Ballon d’Or. Oshoala was part of Barcelona’s dominant treble-winning team, and made history at the World Cup, becoming the first Nigerian to score at three successive World Cups.

Named in the IFFHS CAF Women’s Team of the Decade in 2020, Oshoala is no stranger to individual honours. The Nigerian finished 16th in Ballon d’Or balloting last season and will hope she can slot in a few places higher in the 2023 edition.

Pros and Cons of betting the Women Ballon d’Or Winner

Betting on the Women Ballon d’Or winner shares the same pros and cons as many similar awards. There is value to be found if you place a wager a long way in advance, but you are then vulnerable to the player(s) you have backed picking up injuries or seeing their team underachieve.

Once the nominees are listed and the season is wrapped up, it can sometimes be hard to find value. There will often be one massive favourite in the odds, and it is very rare we see any kind of surprises when the results are announced in Paris.

Team success tends to dictate the winner of this award, which can make it a bit too predictable for bettors. On the other hand, wagering on a player part way through the season can reap major rewards if they are fully fit and you like their team’s chances of winning silverware.

FAQs Women Ballon D’or Winner Odds

Who won the Women Ballon d’Or last year?

Alexia Putellas was the Women’s Ballon d’Or winner in 2022. Putellas became the first player in the award’s history to top voting on multiple occasions, after winning the Ballon d’Or Feminin in 2021.

An ACL injury has ruled Putellas out of contention in 2023, but her Barcelona and Spain teammate Aitana Bonmati is currently the heavy betting favourite to win the award.

When will the Women Ballon d’Or 2023 be awarded?

The 2023 Women Ballon d’Or winner will be announced at Paris’ Théâtre du Châtelet on 30th October 2023. This is the second time in the history of the Ballon d’Or that the voting will be conducted based on a season rather than a calendar year.

Who became the first woman footballer to win the Ballon d’Or?

Norwegian striker Ada Hegerberg became the first Women Ballon d’Or winner in 2018. It is one of numerous individual accolades Hegerberg has accumulated, including being named UEFA Best Women’s Player in Europe in 2016, and making the IFFHS World’s Women’s Team of the Decade for 2011-2020.

Who is the youngest female Ballon d’Or winner?

Ada Hegerberg, winner of the first-ever female Ballon d’Or, is the youngest player to ever lift the trophy. Hegerberg was only 23 years old at the time and narrowly pipped Pernille Harder in the voting.
