With the tournament underway, all eyes are on Qatar for the FIFA World Cup 2022. The hosts lost the tournament opener to Ecuador 2-0, but there’s so much more football to be played.
The odds to win the World Cup 2022 listed below are correct at the time of writing, but visit the individual sportsbook for the latest numbers.
World Cup Odds – Brazil, Argentina, France
With the tournament now underway, outright World Cup Winners Odds have tighten in substantially on some of the more favored names – as is common in many futures markets.
Brazil remain the bookies’ unanimous favorite, though current odds have fallen to around +250-350 from +450-500 a few months ago. In the early running, England, perhaps surprisingly, sat second-favorite around +600 (7/1), but are now fourth- or fifth-favorite at around +900.
Messi’s Argentina have filled the second spot, with outright winners odds much shorter than they were before. From around +1000 they’ve tightened right in to a range of +295 – +500 mark. If you fancy backing the Albicelestes, there’s some value to be had out there.
Defending champions France remain third-favorite, widely, but the odds have lengthened a little and are now around +750-800, from +650 or so a few months ago (7.5/1).
