FIFA World Cup 2022 Odds

There will be 32 teams competing in the 2022 World Cup football. Brazil, Germany, Argentina, and France are the favorites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Selecao are the only team in history to win the World Cup five times, and they now have +400 odds despite not having won since 2002.

Now is the moment to break that dry spell.

Neither Europe nor Brazil has hosted any of Brazil’s five prior championships. Fifty percent of the time is a winning percentage in that set.

And this is one of Brazil’s stronger squads, with many of the same players that won gold in the U-23 tournament at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Even though Neymar is the main attraction, ten players scored for Brazil in the World Cup qualification.

Argentina (+500) is the most recent South American squad to reach a World Cup final when they lost to Germany by a score of 1-0 in 2014.

They won the 2020 Copa America championship, beating Brazil 1-0.

At 35 years old, Lionel Messi won his first major championship with Argentina in Copa America. Now trying for his second goal in World Cup qualification, Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez has added a new dimension to this team.

France (+700) is the defending champion after sweeping through the knockout round in 2018, winning all four matches in regulation and defeating Croatia 4-2 in the final.

They had a +15 goal differential in qualification, helping them win their group by six points.

Paul Pogba and N’golo Kante, two studs in the middle of the field, are out with injuries, but Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann both had breakout years in 2018 and are still on the pitch.

The 2010 World Cup was La Furia Roja’s (Spain’s) only World Cup victory (+850).

However, a new generation of Spanish players shone brightly in their quarterfinal loss to eventual champion Italy at last year’s Euro 2020.

At just 21 years old, Ferran Torres scored four goals to lead his team to qualification. Because he has been used as a substitute more often than a starter for FC Barcelona this season, he may be more rested than some of the other tournament players.

The Three Lions of England (+850) saw their hopes of winning the 2020 European Championship dashed by Italy in a penalty shootout. Nonetheless, there is greater consistency in this group than in past ages.

After leading England to a fourth-place finish in the 2018 World Cup, Gareth Southgate manages his second World Cup. After scoring 12 goals in qualification, which tied for the most in Europe, Harry Kane is red hot for Tottenham Hotspur.

Germany (+1000) has won the World Cup four times, most recently in 2014. While England beat Germany 2-0 in the round of 16 at Euro 2020, Germany did not even make it out of their group at the 2018 World Cup.

The depth of the roster typical of German teams is present, and performance levels rose during the 2022 qualification. However, the team lacks a standout without Timo Werner, who was hurt while playing striker.
