2022 FIFA World Cup Odds to Win Group G

2022 FIFA World Cup Group G Betting Odds

The overall favorites to win the 2022 World Cup are five-time champions Brazil. The No. 1 ranked team by FIFA is usually the favorite in any international competition as the soccer-mad country of 200-million people has the most talent in the world. Brazil has made it out of the Group Stage of the World Cup in every tournament since 1966, but the Canarinho have not won this competition since 2002 and have crashed out in the quarterfinals in three of the last four World Cups.

There is a lot of familiarity in this group as Brazil, Switzerland, and Serbia were all in the same group at the 2018 World Cup. Brazil topped the group and Switzerland came in second, while Serbia was only able to defeat last-place Costa Rica.

Currently, the only team that is a bigger favorite to win its group than Brazil is England. Brazil has a somewhat tricky group as Switzerland and Serbia are both talented sides, but that should not stop the Brazilians from getting to the knockout rounds once more.

This is one of the most formidable attacks in the world as Neymar is on pace to finish his international career with well over 100 goals. Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus are both elite strikers in their prime, and Vinicius Junior started to show off his potential with Real Madrid last season. Roberto Firmino is a superb option too.

Ederson and Alisson are both world class goalkeepers, and Brazil has a solid back line led by Marquinhos and Thiago Silva. Eder Militao, Danilo, and Alex Sandro could all factor into the final roster, but don’t be surprised if 39-year-old Dani Alves doesn’t make the cut.

If there is a weakness on Brazil, it is in the midfield. Lucas Paqueta, Casemiro, Arthur, and Philippe Coutinho are all quality midfielders, but they aren’t the next level talents we have seen from Brazil over the years.

Switzerland has been competitive on the international stage over the last two decades, making it to the knockout rounds in three of the last four World Cups. The Swiss stunned France at the European Championships in penalties last year, and they are tough through the middle. However, they have not performed well in international play of late with a 1-1-4 record in their last four matches. They lost all three of their matches outside of Switzerland, and that doesn’t bode well for their chances.

Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri are the two leaders of the Swiss in the midfield, while Haris Seferovic is the main option at the top of the formation. Breel Embolo, Remo Freuler, and Denis Zakaria are all hoping to use this competition as a springboard for future success, and the back line should be solid. Fabian Schar and Ricardo Rodriguez have experience, and Manuel Akanji and Nico Elvedi are up and comers. Yann Sommer will be in net once again for the Red Crosses.

There is a lot to like about Serbia’s chances ahead of the World Cup. Serbia was unfortunate to lose to Switzerland four years ago, and The Eagles are probably better than they were at that time. Captain Dusan Tadic is a very good distributor in the middle of the field for Serbia, while Aleksandar Mitrovic is a much better No. 9 than many people believe.

Mitrovic and Luka Jovic can be a formidable tandem at the top of the formation, and the midfield can make things happen. The issue for Serbia is an untested defense that has scant experience playing together.

Cameroon hosted the African Cup of Nations last year and had to settle for a third-place finish after losing to Egypt in penalties. The Indomitable Lions have not made it out of the Group Stage of the World Cup since their run to the quarterfinals in 1990, and they were one of the worst teams in this competition in both 2010 and 2014.

Don’t expect much from Cameroon as there isn’t a lot of talent on this team. It’s tough to find a position where they hold an edge over another team in this group, so they will struggle to win a match.
