Of the other European teams expected to perform, Spain has 2022 World Cup odds of +800-850, followed by Germany and the Netherlands (at around +1000), Belgium at +1200 and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal at +1400.
South America is also represented by Argentina, also largely pegged at +1000, though better World Cup betting odds are on offer at Cloudbet. After that, you have to go some way to find Uruguay at +5000, and then Mexico and Ecuador at around the +12500-15000 mark.
There will be a lot of interest in the USA this year, who start the competition at odds to win the World Cup 2022 of +10000. Their clash against England in the group stage is already one that has whet appetites as the hype ahead of November begins to build.
