The FIFA World Cup field has been determined, and the invitation list for this year’s event in Qatar has been finalized after three intercontinental playoffs. Even though the teams know who they will play and when they will play, there are many unknowns about how the first Winter World Cup will unfold.
The tournament begins on November 21 (three days before Thanksgiving in the United States), with four matches, the first of 12 days of four games per day. All of the games will be played in a tight circle of eight stadiums in and around Qatar’s capital, Doha, over the next month, making it the most crowded World Cup in history. The final will take place on December 18, just one week before Christmas.
If you bet, the upcoming competition will be just as exciting. Punters are looking not only for the latest odds, but also for FIFA world cup bonuses from 10CRIC. With that said, here are some things you should be aware of.
How many teams will compete in the 2022 FIFA World Cup?
There will be 32 competing teams. They were divided into eight groups of four in the draw, none of which appeared to be the traditional Group of Death. The top two finishers from each group advance to the round of 16. The World Cup is then a single-elimination event.
Qatar qualified as the host automatically, and 31 other teams joined after years of qualifying – and a few extra months due to the coronavirus. The top teams from Europe and South America are all represented, including England and Germany, Brazil and Argentina, France and Spain.
Canada has secured the right to compete. The tournament will also be kicked off by the United States and Mexico. Ukraine narrowly missed out on the trip. Russia has been told it is not welcome. To secure the remaining two spots, Costa Rica defeated New Zealand, the Oceania survivor, and Australia defeated Peru in a shootout in June.
Predictions for the FIFA World Cup 2022: Who are the favorites?
The top four betting favorites are Brazil, France, England, and Spain, followed by Argentina, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Brazil is the overwhelming favorite to win the 2022 World Cup and extend its tournament winning streak to five. They were placed in Group G, along with Serbia, Cameroon, and Switzerland. England is tied with France and Brazil in World Cup odds. England has a new wave of quality attackers rising through the ranks, so the Three Lions could compete in a number of tournaments in the future.
Can you outwit the odds?
Betting on the outright winner of the FIFA World Cup is a popular futures betting option, and odds are usually released shortly after the previous World Cup champion is crowned. These chances will shift based on how nations and players perform in the lead-up to the World Cup. Soccer odds will also be adjusted based on how certain countries are handled.
Futures odds are displayed in a list format, with each option and its odds sorted from best to worst winning chances. In most cases, a plus (+) symbol appears in front of a team’s future odds.
Consider France, which is at +500. If France wins the World Cup, you could win $500 on a $100 wager. As the World Cup approaches, or if one side has been particularly dominant, you may notice a country with a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds. If you bet on Brazil at -110, you would have to wager $110 to win $100 if Brazil won the World Cup.
