2022 FIFA Word Cup Odds
November 21st, to December 18th, 2022
The FIFA World Cup is one of the most popular events in the entire world – bigger than even some of the popular North American professional league championships. Why is that? Football or Soccer is an extremely popular sport around the world, it’s the biggest worldwide sport, even though we, in America would argue that American football is the biggest sport.
Many countries have soccer programs and leagues, making it into the worldwide phenomenon that it is. The FIFA World Cup is the ultimate stage for soccer, and each event draws gigantic crowds of spectators and fans.
The international tournament is highly anticipated as it only occurs every four years, contesting the top teams in the world with hopes of winning the World Cup Odds. The first occurrence of the tournament was in 1930, which means we have seen 21 editions of the tournament. The 22nd edition will occur in 2022 – how fitting!
Not only will the tournament be exciting for fans, but sports bettors will be keeping a close eye on the tournament in the next year. We will see plenty of FIFA World Cup betting odds sprouting up and there will be plenty of speculation leading up to the event.
Scheduled to take place in Qatar, the first time the World Cup Odds has been held in an Arab country, and the first time the tournament will be moved to a later date in the year, due to Qatar’s scorching heat in the summertime. The FIFA World Cup will take place from November 21st to December 18th, 2022. The temperatures will be more tolerable later in the year, the players would have been at risk having it in July.
The tournament format will begin with a qualification round, where all FIFA member associations are eligible to qualify. Qatar is the only team with an automatic berth into the tournament, as they are the hosts. This will also be Qatar’s first appearance at the World Cup.
The first round of the tournament will feature Groups A through H playing in a round robin style of tournament, and then will move on to a knockout-style bracket. If you’re familiar with March Madness, the knockout stage will be similar. It will start with a Round of 16, then Quarter-finals, Semi-finals and the Final, where we will find out who will win the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The final is scheduled to occur on December 18, 2022.
The tournament format includes a qualification phase, a knockout phase, round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final will be played on December 18, 2022. The tournament has
The FIFA World Cup is the ultimate soccer tournament worldwide, and the winners receive the recognition for a whole four years until the next champion is crowned. Due to the prestige of the tournament, ourselves and many other sportsbooks offer plenty of Sports betting opportunities and FIFA World Cup odds on each match throughout the month-long event.
The tournament will definitely have a different feel to it as it’s being played later, in a shorter time frame, in a very warm climate, as it’s the first time the tournament has been played in an Arab country. The customs in Qatar are very different from what most players, staff and affiliates are used to, and there has been some concern by interest groups and media. For instance, alcohol is a banned substance in Qatar – and we all have seen the rowdy crowds at the previous FIFA World Cup Betting Events.
We believe a main issue American sports bettors will face is that the tournament is happening on the other side of the world, and the game times will be at less than optimal hours for betting. Qatar’s time zone is UTC+3, which means its over seven hours ahead of the East Coast (New York), and game times will occur at 1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 10pm UTC+3, which will mean all the games will be played between 6am and 3pm (EST), and between 3am and noon in Las Vegas.
We recommend heading over to our 2022 FIFA World Cup Odds guide to learn more about betting on the World Cup, and how you can make some money by betting on elite soccer.
If you’re new to betting on the FIFA World Cup, you can read along as we outline the most popular FIFA World Cup betting options ahead of the event in 2022.
If you’re familiar with betting on soccer in general, you will know that soccer has three-way moneylines opposed to regular moneyline bets. However, due to the tournament needing a winner for advancement purposes, no games at the FIFA World Cup end in a draw, so that will not be an option on the oddsboard during the World Cup.
Regular moneyline betting is much more simple and a 50% chance of being right is much better than a 33.3% chance. You are picking either Team 1 or Team 2 to win the game outright. You don’t need to worry about how many points are scored or any other factor in the game – just pick the winner.
When looking at the matchup, you will see the two options – both teams that are playing the game, and one team will be favored and one will be considered an underdog. You will need to decide if you think that an underdog will win, or if the favored team will predictably claim victory.
Let’s look at an example of a moneyline wager that could occur at the FIFA World Cup:
France is favored to win this match, and Uruguay is considered the underdog, but not a huge underdog, there’s a good chance that they could win the match.
In this situation, you could place a $165 wager on France to to win the match, and that would return $100 in winnings. An easy way to look at it is the negative number represents what you need to bet to win $100.
If you placed a $100 wager on Uruguay to win, that would return $105 in winnings. A positive number represents what you would win on a $100 wager.
Spreads in soccer aren’t the same as most other sporting events odds, mainly because soccer doesn’t track points, they track goals. The spreads in soccer are called goalline bets – and at FIFA World Cup Odds tournaments, the spreads are actually quite low due to the competitiveness of the nations participating.
FIFA World Cup odds usually are only a few points, as games are low scoring. If you have a goalline spread of -1.5/+1.5, the negative number represents the favored team that needs to win by 2 or more goals, and the positive number represents the underdog team, which will need to win the game, or lose by less than a point.
Let’s look at the World Cup odds using same teams as above.
If you bet on France, they will have to win by two or more points. If you bet on Uruguay they can either win the game by any amount, or lose by less than a point.
Betting the totals on FIFA World Cup odds is simple and easy – much like any other sport. Your job is to determine if the total number of goals scored in a game will be more or less than the posted line.
In soccer, since there aren’t too many goals being scored, they will post the lines as quarters or half points. A 2.5 total is common, or 2.25 could be an option you may see on a FIFA World Cup odds board.
If a total for a game at the World Cup was set at 3.5, let’s say you feel really good about the under. If the final score is 2-1, you would win your bet. If the final score is 4-3, you would lose your bet.
Before the tournament starts, you will find FIFA World Cup futures, which can be released months or even years in advance as the tournament only occurs every four years. The odds are released as soon as we know which teams are participating – once they complete qualifiers.
Futures allow you to pick the winner of the tournament in advance, and it could lead to a huge payout. The teams will be listed based on their likelihood of winning the World Cup, and if you pick a winner, you could likely be looking at a huge payout.
It’s common for different teams to perform well in the next tournament, as we see such different rosters each time the FIFA World Cup comes around. There has only been two back to back winners of the tournament, so we don’t usually put all of our money on the previous year’s winner, unless it’s a very similarly strong team.
The FIFA World Cup is one of the most exciting sporting events worldwide, due to soccer/football being such a globally renowned sport, and the fact that it only occurs every four years. Regular betting options are exciting, but FIFA World Cup prop bets make the month-long event even more exhilarating.
If you aren’t very familiar with soccer betting, proposition bets can be a great choice if you just want to bet on some unique instances that will occur. More often than not, prop bets require you to simply make a guess – they can be entirely random and require no knowledge of soccer or sports as a whole.
If you’re looking at FIFA World Cup odds, you can find plenty of different prop options, including player props and team props, which involve outcomes that would involve a specific player or team. You can also find random, unique occurrences that depend on which teams are playing, which players are playing, or if a wacky or bizarre instance will happen in a particular game.
FIFA World Cup betting can be a fun way to make the games more exciting this November/December. But first, let’s look at the popular World Cup prop bets, and you can determine if they’re right for you.
We don’t want you to come across the World Cup prop bets and be intimidated by how many there are. There are some different options, but we will outline the most popular ones you’ll find at the tournament.
When looking at soccer props, you can find plenty of bets that will resemble moneyline wagers. It’s just an easy way to look at props and makes them easily understandable. They will mostly be displayed in a yes or no question format, or a this or that format. Let’s figure out how these World Cup prop bets work:
You can also find player matchups formatted exactly like the normal moneyline wagers that will put two comparable players from any teams up against each other in a match up.
Your job is to decide which player will outperform the other. Usually players of similar skills are put up against each other just to make things a little trickier to predict.
Team props are instances that might occur during a game that reflect how a team performs. Team props are a bit easier to bet over player props, as you can predict how a team might perform as a whole.
Let’s look at a few team prop options:
There are also World Cup prop bets that will be active through a period of time, sometimes a week, and sometimes it could last the whole tournament. These types of props will usually be based on a team’s performance in the tournament, or something that might occur at some point while the tournament is going on.
You will be able to bet on a team to place first in their group, make the quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final round. These options will be formatted in a yes or no answer format, and you will pick the answer you believe will happen.
