The World Cup is just around the corner, and this year’s edition is set to be the biggest yet. There is an estimated 5 billion people across the globe expected to tune in to the competition. Fans and bettors alike all want to know one thing: Which country has the best 2022 World Cup odds.
Action Network has compared and ranked each team in the tournament based on their odds of winning. Read on to discover the tournament favorites in each group.
Tournament hosts Qatar are making their World Cup debut in 2022. While the nation doesn’t necessarily have a long soccer history, fans will be buoyed by the team's recent success in the Asian Cup. With 2022 World Cup odds of +30000 to win the World Cup, though, Qatari supporters will need to keep their expectations realistic.
The Netherlands (+1200) are the favorites out of Group A to win the tournament at +1200 odds. The team is led by towering center back Virgil Van Dijk. Senegal, led by striker Sadio Mane, hope to be the first African nation to taste the ultimate World Cup glory at +8000 odds to win.
Group B features one of the tournament favorites in England. The 1966 World Cup winners have the third best odds to win it all at +700 odds. Harry Kane and Co. have had recent struggles, but the team is still expected to come out on top in Group B.
The United States and Wales also feature in Group B. Both teams have +13000 odds of winning the World Cup. Stars like Christian Pulisic for the USA, and Gareth Bale for Wales, will have to will their teams to glory.
Finally, Iran are the long shots in Group B, with the long odds of +50000.
Tied for the third best overall odds to win, Argentina are the cream of the crop in Group C at +700 odds. Lionel Messi features in what is likely his last ever World Cup, and is hungry to bring home this elusive trophy.
However, current Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski will be doing all he can to spoil the party for former Catalan icon Messi. His Poland team have given odds of +13000 to win the tournament. A tough Mexican team will not be a pushover in the group either, also with +13000 odds.
The defending World Cup champions, France, are the stars of Group D. Les Bleus are among the tournament favorites at +600 odds to repeat as winners. France boasts a star-studded team that includes Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, PSG icon Kylian Mbappe, and the ever-reliable captain Hugo Lloris.
France are joined in Group D by Euro 2020 semi-finalists Denmark, with +2800 odds to win it all. The Danes will lean on their talisman, Christian Eriksen, in their uphill climb for World Cup glory.
You’d be forgiven for feeling that group E was already a foregone conclusion, with Spain (+800) and Germany (+1000) lightyears ahead of fellow competitors Japan (+25000) and Costa Rica (+80000).
In fact, the two European nations each rank among the six most likely to win the tournament. This gives increased importance to their matchup on November 27th. Spain will go into the game as slight favorites, but a German team led by a glittering forward line will be more than up for the challenge.
Belgium have been hotly tipped to win most major tournaments for the last decade. The team features a surplus of top-class talent that includes the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, and Thibaut Courtois. Their odds for this year’s World Cup, however, are less favorable. In fact, with odds of +1400, the Red Devils are outsiders for the tournament.
Meanwhile, Luka Modric’s Croatia have odds of +5000, ahead of Canada (+20000) and Morocco (+25000).
With the lowest combined odds of any of the eight World Cup groups, we can consider Group G the "Group of Death". Tournament favorites Brazil (+450) come up against Switzerland (+8000), Serbia (+10000), and Cameroon (+25000).
While the group’s three outsiders may not eventually prove to be the sternest opposition for an experienced Brazil team with the likes of Neymar, Alisson, and Thiago Silva, their route to a sixth World Cup will be far from straightforward.
With a plethora of world class attacking talent on display, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Son Heung-Min, and Luis Suarez, many fans will expect Group H to be a goal-fest. In terms of overall predictions, though, Portugal (+1200) lead the way. The Euro 2016 winner is also ranked as the eighth most likely team to win the entire tournament.
Closely behind, Uruguay will be going for their third World Cup title, while South Korea (+25000) will be aiming to get out of the group stage for just the second time since hosting the tournament in 2002.
