2022 World Cup Betting Odds

If you’re betting on the 2022 World Cup, you’ll want to start by getting familiar with the best teams and players to watch out for. To help you get started, here’s a quick look at the top five betting favorites to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, based on their current odds at Bovada Sportsbook.

Brazil (+400)

As one of soccer’s global superpowers, Brazil is the top betting favorite heading into Qatar. Having won the World Cup on five separate occasions, no country has had more success on this global stage. While Brazil hasn’t won it all since 2002, they are in the midst of a 15-match unbeaten streak in the Group Stage and should be a safe bet to advance into the Round of 16. With a talented roster that includes big names like Neymar and Fabinho, it’s easy to see why Brazil has the best odds to win the 2022 World Cup.

Argentina (+500)

Expectations are high for Argentina following their Copa America success in 2021, ending the nation’s 28-year drought in major soccer competitions. This team may not be overloaded with star power but they do have one of the best soccer players of all-time; Lionel Messi. The 35-year-old Argentinian is at the tail-end of his career and you can bet he’d love to add a World Cup title to his already impressive resume. This will be the final World Cup appearance of Messi’s career and with his team boasting excellent depth throughout the lineup, this could Argentina’s year.

France (+700)

As the defending World Cup champions from 2018, all eyes will be on France as they seek to defend their crown in Qatar. No country has successfully defended their World Cup title since Brazil accomplished the feat in 1962, but those squads didn’t have Kylian Mbappe. The 23-year-old forward has become one of the best footballers in the world and provides France with explosive speed and excellent finishing on the pitch. With young players like Mbappe, Ousmane Dembélé and Eduardo Camavinga, there could be a whole new generation of World Cup champions in France.

England (+800)

It’s only been a year since England suffered heartbreak by penalty kicks in the Euro 2020 final, but this team has returned to the game’s greatest stage and is ready for redemption. The Three Lions should have no trouble navigating the Group Stage against USA, Iran and Wales, but things could get tricky from there on out. England will obviously rely on the goal-scoring of Harry Kane to keep their offense going but will need some of their younger players to step up if they want to make a deep run at this year’s World Cup.

Spain (+900)

Although they’ve struggled in international competition recently, Spain is still one of the best soccer nations in the world and offer excellent betting value to win the 2022 World Cup. The team has arguably one of the best midfields in the tournament with Koke, Rodri and Thiago, but will need to overcome some inexperience at the center back position if they want to capitalize on their +900 betting odds. Keep an eye on Ferran Torres, as the 21-year-old Spaniard is an exceptional talent offering tons of attacking threat.
