2022 FIFA World Cup Betting Odds

2022 FIFA World Cup Betting Odds

If you’re missing the World Cup right now, you aren’t alone. Millions of soccer fans are frustrated that the premier international event in sports has been pushed back to November because of the heat in Qatar. There won’t be any action until late in the fall, and the World Cup will have to contend with football, basketball, and hockey in the United States. That has some fans contemplating futures bets to get ahead of the game, and there is some value with the current soccer betting odds.

To no one’s surprise, five-time World Cup champions Brazil are the favorites to win the 2022 World Cup. Brazil has been among the top three favorites in every World Cup over the last three decades, as there is a tremendous amount of talent up and down this roster. They didn’t drop a single game in CONMEBOL qualifying, and their last loss came over a year ago when they fell to Argentina in the 2021 Copa America Finals.

Neymar is still in his prime, and he will be flanked by two superb forwards in Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus. Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino can provide depth and versatility, and Casemiro and Lucas Paqueta are solid in the midfield. Alisson is arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, and he has a lot of experience in front of him. The back line is the only potential weak link as Thiago Silva and Dani Alves are experienced but long in the tooth, and the only two truly elite defenders in their prime are Marquinhos and Eder Militao.

The reigning World Cup champions did not perform well in the Nations League in June. France was unable to beat Croatia (twice), Denmark and Austria in its four matches, but that has not dissuaded bettors from backing Les Bleus in a few months. Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, and Karim Benzema are the best trio of forwards in the world, and talisman Olivier Giroud can come off the bench.

France did not have do-it-all midfielder Paul Pogba available this summer, but he will be ready for the World Cup. Thomas Lemar will also make his return for the French in Qatar, bolstering a midfield that did not have experienced playmakers. N’Golo Kante and Adrien Rabiot are both defensive midfielders, but they had to try and flip the field. The back line is one of the best in the world with Raphael Varane, Benjamin Pavard, Presnel Kimpembe, and Lucas Hernandez. There is depth too, but there is not an experienced net minder behind Hugo Lloris.

The Three Lions are hoping to win the World Cup for the first time since 1966. England made it to the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup and the finals of the 2020 European Championships, as Gareth Southgate has taken this squad to new levels. This might be their best chance to win a major tournament too as most of their stars are in their prime.

Harry Kane leads this team and has already notched 50 goals in just 73 games. Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford are great forwards too, and there is depth at this position. The midfield is a little weak as Jordan Henderson is the only truly elite player here, but the back line has proven to be solid and deep.

The two countries with the most value to win the World Cup are Belgium and Croatia. Belgium is currently last among the favorites at 14-1, as their odds have dropped since a 4-1 loss in Brussels to the Netherlands back in early June. The Red Devils have since bounced back from that defeat even though most of their stars have not played in recent matches.

Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, and Eden Hazard can do a lot of damage, and they bested Brazil at the 2018 World Cup before losing to eventual champions France 1-0 in the semifinals.

Croatia is in the same group as Belgium, so it may seem puzzling to take two teams from the same group. However, Belgium and Croatia are a clear cut above Canada and Morocco and bettors are undervaluing them since they presumably have to face the two juggernauts in Group E. We saw Croatia finish runner-up to France at the last World Cup, and this team still has a lot of talent in the midfield and up top. They could certainly do damage once again and are a bargain at 52-1.
