World Cup 2022 Winner Prediction
- ARGENTINA (13/2)
While it might be Brazil who open this year’s World Cup tipped as a standout pick with the bookies, it is their bitter South American rivals ARGENTINA (13/2 with Paddy Power) who should be smelling the chance to make history this winter.
Making the trip to Qatar enjoying a 35-match unbeaten run, La Albiceleste will also be boosted by their recent success against the Selecao.
Lifting the Copa America title last year following a 1-0 win against Brazil, Scaloni’s high-flying squad are unbeaten in each of their previous three competitive showdowns against their title rivals.
With this year’s Middle Eastern adventure the last time that football fans will see Lionel Messi competing on the world stage, Argentina can be found at appealing odds to come out on top.
Placed in Group C alongside Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland, Argentina also have an attacking legend who will lead their charge during the festive period.
Desperate to hand seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi a maiden World Cup winners medal and the chance to put the cherry on top of his iconic career, Scaloni’s side travel to the Middle East riding a real wave of momentum.
World Cup 2022 Golden Boot Winner Prediction
- LIONEL MESSI (14/1)
While the likes of Mbappe, Kane, and Benzema might all find themselves tipped among the standout picks to claim this year’s World Cup Golden Boot, LIONEL MESSI (14/1 with 888Sport) appears to have a golden chance to further cement his case as the best player of all-time.
Finally picking up a piece of international silverware after claiming a maiden Copa America title last year, the 35-year-old has only continued to shine on the international stage over recent months.
With neutrals from across the globe all hoping that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner can sign off his iconic career by lifting the Jules Rimet Trophy come December, Messi opens Argentina’s World Cup adventure by enjoying quite the wave of momentum.
In fact, mustering 21 goals for club and country since opening the 2022/23 campaign, Messi has enjoyed a stellar international flurry over the past 12 months.
Including all five goals in Argentina’s 5-0 victory against Estonia back in June, Messi has remarkably bagged nine strikes in just his last three international appearances.
Astonishingly averaging a trio of goals in each of La Albiceleste’s three pre-tournament friendlies, the ex-Barca icon can be found at appealing odds in the race for this winter’s Golden Boot.
Bet £10 on Lionel Messi to be World Cup 2022 top goalscorer at 888Sport and you will get the best odds of 14/1 currently available.
World Cup Group H Winner Prediction
- URUGUAY (21/10)
Although it might be Portugal who find themselves tipped as a leading pick with the bookmakers to claim top spot in Group H this year, URUGUAY (21/10 with 888Sport) should be smelling the chance to spring an upset in Qatar. Despite only turning to new boss Diego Alonso 11 months ago, the South American icons have continued to shine under the 47-year-old and the mood in their camp should be at a high.
Coming past Portugal out in Russia four years ago as they clinched a 2-1 victory against the former European champions in the Round of 16, Uruguay should be confident of pulling off a repeat performance this winter.
While Portugal might have a string of European-based stars in their ranks, La Celeste aren’t short of their own stacked options across the pitch. Along with attacking depth that includes the likes of Darwin Nunez, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Uruguay will also have their midfield packed out by the duo of Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde and Tottenham’s Rodrigo Bentancur.
Still holding a real reputation for their pragmatic approach, Uruguay look like a good value World Cup betting tip to top Group H.
England Top Goalscorer Predictions World Cup 2022
- HARRY KANE (4/6)
- MARCUS RASHFORD (20/1)
It is not very often we would look at such a short price for a betting tip but it is simply difficult to look past HARRY KANE (4/6 with Paddy Power) to be England’s World Cup top scorer in Qatar. The Tottenham man won the World Cup Golden Boot four years ago and in a group including Iran, USA and Wales, you would expect Kane to net two or three goals here.
As an outsider bet for England top scorer, MARCUS RASHFORD (20/1 with Paddy Power) would be a speculative selection. He has hit some form for Manchester United at just the right time and Southgate is a fan of him. How many minutes he gets on the pitch will be crucial to this bet but if England have a disastrous tournament and crash out early, anybody with a couple of goals to their name could still win the England top scorer accolade.
World Cup Golden Ball Winner Tip
- LIONEL MESSI
The footballing legend could secure the fairytale end to his World Cup career by winning the tournament with Argentina but even if he doesn’t lift the trophy next month, he still has a good chance of winning the player of the tournament accolade if Argentina go deep into the tournament.
Messi is our World Cup top goalscorer tip for the competition and in what looks like a favourable group, Messi could bag himself a few goals and get off to a good start.
World Cup Golden Glove Betting Tip
- ALISSON (4/1)
Brazil are blessed with two of the world’s best goalkeepers but Alisson is their first choice and he is the prediction to the World Cup Golden Glove winner. Brazil will need their shot-stopper to be on top of his game because they do focus on attacking but they can afford to do so in a group containing Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. It isn’t unreasonable to expect two or more clean sheets from Alisson in the group stages and then he will need to be at his best as Brazil go deeper into the competition – something he is certainly capable of doing as he has proved time and time again with Liverpool.
Highest Scoring Team Betting Tip
- ARGENTINA (5/1)
The Argentina match against Saudi Arabia provides them with a realistic chance of scoring 5 or more goals in one game and in what looks like a favourable passage to the semi-finals, ARGENTINA could rack up the goals and land the accolade as the highest-scoring team at Qatar 2022.
England are unlikely to get close to the top of the table in this stat but the Iran match could set them up nicely and France are a bit of an unknown quantity with very patchy form. Belgium were the highest scoring team at the 2018 World Cup with 16 goals ahead of finalists France and Croatia on 14.
If Lionel Messi continues his PSG form into the tournament then he is also a good bet in our World Cup Golden Boot tips and he could fire his nation to not only the top scorers but to lift the trophy as a whole.
The 2022 World Cup is going to be a unique occasion because it is the first ever football World Cup played in winter – the tournament gets underway in Qatar in mid-November and we will be with you every step of the way with our match-by-match World Cup betting tips as well as predictions before the tournament starts for things like top goalscorer, group accumulators and who will win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar?
Read on to get all the latest World Cup betting help ahead of the big kick-off on Sunday 20th November when hosts Qatar play Ecuador.
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.

- Group A – Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal and Netherlands
- Group B – England, IR Iran, USA and Wales
- Group C – Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland

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.
