2022 FIFA World Cup Group H Betting

Two of the smallest nations to have won major international tournaments are the favorites to win Group H at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Portugal claimed the 2016 European Championship, while Uruguay has won the World Cup two times. South Korea and Ghana are seen as the odd teams out, but both countries have recently surprised to at least make it to the final eight.

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will begin on Monday, November 21 and run through the final on Sunday, December 18. All the action can be seen on FOX or FS1.

World Cup Group H Betting Odds and Preview

This could very well be the last time we see Cristiano Ronaldo at the World Cup. Ronaldo turned 37 in February, and he has lost a step or two. Still, he has been the greatest striker of his generation with 115 goals in 186 games with Portugal. When Portugal won the 2016 Euros, it was due to a stalwart defense that allowed just five goals in seven games. That back line will need to be solid again, as youngsters Joao Felix, Goncalo Guedes, Diogo Jota, and Andre Silva have not been as good as hoped in their bid to replace Ronaldo.

Uruguay is in a strange place. The golden generation has come and gone, but a lot of those old players are still starters on the national team. Goalkeeper Fernando Muslera has 131 caps and will be 36 in June, captain Diego Godin has 157 caps and is 36, fellow defender Martin Caceres has 112 caps and is 35, and all-time great forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani have 132 and 130 caps and are both 35. There isn’t a lot of young talent on the roster, so we could see Uruguay really fall apart in Qatar if the older players have lost too much of a step.

The Tigers of Asia are making their 10th straight appearance at the World Cup. South Korea has had a tough time making it out of the Group Stage with just two trips to the knockout rounds, but they made it all the way to the semifinals in 2002 and beat Germany at the last World Cup to keep the Germans from making the knockout rounds. None of their goals came within 90 minutes at the last World Cup, so the goal for Son Heung-min and others is to strike sooner this time.

Ghana has made it to the knockout rounds in two of the three World Cups that it has qualified for to date. The Black Stars made the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup by knocking off the United States, but the stars from that team are gone. Jordan Ayew, Andre Ayew, and Thomas Partey are two of the big names on this roster, but there are some real questions in the back line coming into the 2022 World Cup.
