World Cup Betting Tips for Qatar 2022

Our World Cup betting tips will include a preview and bet builder for every match of the tournament, starting with the group stages before the last 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final, which takes place on Sunday 18th December 2022.

Nothing beats the World Cup for drama and after England went all the way to the final at Euro 2020, they will be hoping to go one better and lift the trophy in Qatar this winter. Standing in their way will be the likes of Brazil, France and Argentina but England’s conquerors in the Euro 2020 final, Italy, will not be involved after losing out in the European qualifying for Qatar 2022.

At the other end of the scale, we will need to pick out some tips and predictions for the World Cup minnows such as Costa Rica, Saudi Arabia and hosts Qatar.

 

World Cup Group Stage Predictions

As soon as our tipsters have looked through the group matches in detail, we will produce our famous World Cup group winners’ accumulator tip, picking a nation to win each of the eight groups in Qatar.

Some of the predictions should be easy to make (on paper at least) with Brazil expected to cruise through Group G at odds of 1/4 and England around 2/7 to win Group B which consists of Wales, Iran and USA.

Other groups will be harder to predict the winner of. Group E features Spain and Germany so these will be very tough to separate and Portugal have Uruguay to contend with in Group H.

World Cup 2022 Groups

  • Group A – Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal and Netherlands
  • Group B – England, IR Iran, USA and Wales
  • Group C – Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland
  • Group D – France, Australia, Denmark and Tunisia
  • Group E – Spain, Costa Rica, Germany and Japan
  • Group F – Belgium, Canada, Morocco and Croatia
  • Group G – Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon
  • Group H – Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay and Korea Republic

World Cup 2022 Odds

Brazil are the favourites to win the 2022 World Cup at odds of 5/1 with a few bookies including BetVictor and Paddy Power. Be sure to shop around if you want to bet on Brazil to win the World Cup because some bookies are only giving odds of 9/2.

France come next in the latest World Cup odds at odds of 6/1 and England are also 6/1 but you can get 7/1, which is the best odds for England to win the World Cup in Qatar. The 7/1 is available with William Hill, Coral and Betfred.

Argentina are 8/1 to win the tournament with Betfred (7/1 elsewhere) and Spain are the same price to win their second World Cup following their win in 2014, when they beat Argentina 1-0 in extra-time.

Germany are 10/1 and a resurgent Netherlands side 12/1. Portugal are next in the World Cup betting at 16/1 and Belgium are 18/1, which is an interesting price given they were one of the favourites to win the last World Cup and Euro 2020. Any side with Kevin De Bruyne in cannot be ignored when it comes to picking World Cup betting tips, that is for sure!

You will need to use the SBK sign-up bonus for the World Cup to get 18/1 as Belgium are as short as 11/1 with some other well known bookies.

It is hard to see anybody outside of these teams getting to the final (bookies will pay out each-way bets for first and second only) but the likes of 2018 finalists Croatia (66/1), Wales (239/1) and rank outsiders Costa Rica (1000/1) will all see a few bets placed on them for sure.
