Bets and odds for the FIFA World Cup 2022

For the first time in history the FIFA World Cup will be held in winter - from 21 November to 17 December 2022. Such a decision was taken by the FIFA leadership due to the climatic peculiarities of Qatar. In summer, the temperature in this country reaches 55 degrees. Playing soccer in such conditions is almost impossible. Bookmakers even before the end of the qualifying rounds have opened a line on the World Cup - bettors have long-term bets on the winner of the tournament. Most bookmakers prefer the national teams of Brazil, England and France, offering odds of less than 10.0 on their victory.

Participants of the World Cup

On April 1, the draw for the final stage of the World Cup was held in Doha. The 32 national teams were divided into eight groups. The last three places have not yet been determined, so in some quartets, instead of the fourth team, the opponents who will play each other for a ticket to Qatar are listed.

Group A: Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, Netherlands

Senegal Senegal
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0
Netherlands Netherlands
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

Objectively the weakest quartet, since Qatar was (by default) in it as the host country. As of April 2022, this national team was 48th in the FIFA ranking, it would have been in the last basket. However, the regulations put it in the first basket. Something extraordinary would have to happen for Holland not to finish first in the group by a wide margin. Senegal and Ecuador are likely to fight for the second spot. Qatar seems to be the clear outsider; the squad is made up entirely of home-grown players.

Group B: England, U.S., Iran, winner of joint 1

The fourth team in this quartet has not yet been determined. The Scotland-Ukraine match has been postponed until the summer, due to the geopolitical situation. The winner of this pair will face Wales, who beat Austria (2-1) in the semifinals of the tie. The clear favorite, of course, is England. It seems that even if Gareth Southgate releases reserve lineup in each match of the group round, his wards will take the first place without any problems. Bookmakers believe England as one of the main favorites for the World Cup. On its victory in the tournament offered odds in the region of 7.0 - 8.5. For the second ticket the other three teams have roughly equal chances. Everything will depend on the shape the leaders of their opponents will be in by the start of the mundial.

Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland

Mexico Mexico

Poland Poland

One of the most even groups. "On paper, Argentina seems stronger than its opponents. However, it does not look as formidable now as it did a few years ago. The main problem is Messi's age. Since moving to PSG, Lionel does not show the Games that fans expect from him. Therefore, there will certainly be no easy walk for the Argentines. Mexico and Poland are at least as good as they are right now. The Saudis shouldn't be a points provider either, having won the AFC selection group with strong teams from Japan and Australia.

Group D: France, Denmark, Tunisia, winner of joint 2

The UAE, Australia, and Peru are contenders for the last spot in Group D. Regardless of who wins the tie, the quartet looks extremely predictable. The reigning world champions should have no problem taking first place. Bookmakers' shops regard the French as the main favorites of the World Cup, offering odds of 6.5 - 7.0 for their victory. Second place should go to Denmark, the Scandinavians are a head stronger than Tunisia and representatives of CONMEBOL and AFC.

Group E: Spain, Germany, Japan, Costa Rica/New Zealand
Team Spain Germany Japan Costa Rica Games Victory Nobody's Defeats Goals Points
Spain Spain
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

Japan Japan
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0
Costa Rica Costa Rica/New Zealand
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

The only intrigue of this group: who will take first place - Germany or Spain. The players of the remaining national teams can buy their tickets home in advance at the end of the group stage. The difference in class in this quartet is extremely high. Only a face-to-face encounter between the two favorites can arouse the interest of a neutral spectator.

Group F: Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia
Team Belgium Canada Morocco Croatia Games Victory Nobody's Defeats Goals Points
Belgium Belgium
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

Morocco Morocco
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0
Croatia Croatia
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

Another predictable group in which the European teams look clear favorites and are 99% likely to make the playoffs. This is confirmed by the bookmakers' betting odds - Belgium and Croatia are offered very low odds to make the playoffs. Canada and Morocco can bet on defense and look for chances on the counterattack. However, it is unlikely to help them in matches against the favorites.

Group G: Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon
Team Brazil Serbia Switzerland Cameroon Games Victory Nobody's Defeats Goals Points
Brazil Brazil

Switzerland Switzerland
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0
Cameroon Cameroon
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

The ball-handlers should have no problem getting out of the group, even if they have to resort to rotation. Brazil has looked strong over the past few years and is considered the top favorite for the 2022 World Cup, according to all bookmakers. It should be a tough fight for second place. All three opponents are about the same level and have their own stars in the squad.

Group H: Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea
Team Portugal Ghana Uruguay South Korea Games Victory Nobody's Defeats Goals Points
Portugal Portugal
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0
Ghana Ghana

Uruguay Uruguay
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0
South Korea South Korea
-:- -:- -:- -:- 0 0 0 0 -:- 0

"On paper, Portugal and Uruguay should take the top two spots. However, Korea's side should be able to put up a good fight. Son Heung-min has had another brilliant season, tying with Harry Kane for the APL goal+pass record. The Tottenham forward is capable of single-handedly deciding the outcome of a match. Therefore, Korea should not be discounted.

Features of the World Cup for betting

When planning to bet on the World Cup, it is necessary to take into account the peculiarities of this tournament. Let's analyze the main points:

  • The high level of the game. There are no weak teams in the final part of the World Cup, it involves the best players in the world. Therefore, ridiculous mistakes or unexpected results are extremely rare. Statistically, in the first rounds the performance is very high, because the teams are not yet under the pressure of the tournament rankings. That is why bets on total more and both scores are good. Some bookmakers offer combined bets, such as TB + OZ.
  • Teams are always motivated. The format of the tournament excludes "passing" matches, as is the case at the end of the regular championships. There are only three rounds in the group stage, and even victories in the first two games do not guarantee first place. It also works in the opposite direction - the national team, with one point after two rounds can take the second place in case of victory in the final round (in certain circumstances). The Argentinians did the same at the 2018 World Cup - after two matches they were in last place with one point, the victory over Nigeria in the final round ensured them a ticket to the 1/8 finals.
  • In-depth coverage. Bookmakers for tournaments of this level offer an increased number of markets. Bettors have thousands of bets available, from offside totals to individual player statistics. With the increase of the spread, the limits increase. On top matches it is possible to bet up to several million rubles.
  • All the players will be in optimal shape. The World Cup will be held in winter, which is the height of the season in most countries. Therefore, before you bet on the World Cup, you should consider the form and results of the players at club level. When the Mundial was held in the summer, players would get a vacation, followed by a long training camp. In 2022, the pause will be much shorter.
