World Cup 2022 Outright Winner Betting Guide

The 2022 World Cup is just around the corner and we want to tell you our predictions ahead of the biggest tournament on the planet. Qatar plays host to the greatest teams on the planet, but who will we be backing?

Outright Betting

Brazil is currently the favourite to win the World Cup and make it a total of six trophies in their decorated history. Historically, Brazil is the greatest football side of all time and will now look to adopt their resurgence into world football after finishing outside the playoffs in every tournament since their last win in 2002.

But what makes them favourites? The current world number one’s are now under the leadership of Tite who has only lost five matches out of 76 games as they will look to become supreme once again on the world stage.

With plenty of world-class players such as Neymar, Fabinho and Vinicius Junior within their ranks as well as depth all over the pitch – there is no wonder they are tipped as favourites for the competition where odds of 4/1 can be found.

South American rivals Argentina is also close in the betting with odds of 6/1 as Lionel Messi will hope to achieve that final piece of the puzzle with probably his last major tournament in white and blue.

Argentina is at similar odds to France and England who will also offer a competitive fight for the World Cup.

Overall, we will be predicting that France win the World Cup this year which offers competitive odds and an excellent forward line with Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe. We will back them to win the final as they could look to meet our underdogs in the final…

Outright Underdogs

We will be tipping the Netherlands to make a good impact here under the leadership of Louis Van Gaal who takes charge for the third time in his management career. The three-times runners-up have struggled internationally in recent times, but that bad fortune could be coming to an end with an excellent record as of late.

The Dutch will undoubtedly be tough to beat and have a number of quality players with a good mix of prime and younger talent. Virgil Van Dijk will prove a huge asset at the back, as well Memphis Depay down the other end of the pitch.

You can get odds of up to 14/1 for the Netherlands to finally lift the World Cup trophy and this could be their best chance in years after not qualifying for Russia four years ago. The plan is ready and they are reset for the tournament in Qatar.

Dark Horse

Following a successful Euro 2020 campaign, Denmark will look to take all that form and good fortune into the Middle East. The Scandinavian side managed to reach the semi-finals in 2021 where they lost to England after Extra Time despite losing their hero Christian Eriksen in unfortunate circumstances earlier in the competition.

But Eriksen is back and will look to help lead The Red and Whites to another unforgettable campaign. With a strong defence and plenty of attacking force going forward, we could see Denmark reach the quarter-finals and maybe beyond for the first time since 1998. You can get odds of up to 30/1 for the Danes to win the World Cup, but a safer bet of them reaching the quarters is 2/1.

Top Goalscorer

Just like Euro 2020, Harry Kane is the favourite to finish with the Golden Boot at the end of the World Cup where he managed to win this in Russia – in 2018 as well as in Euro 2020. His fine goalscoring record is key for England as he will look to take The Three Lions one step further from the Euros final.

You can get odds of up to 9/1 for Kane to retain the golden boot where he managed to score six in Russia.

Most surprisingly, you won't reach down until about sixth on the options list until you see the Ballon d’Or winner – Karim Benzema. The 34-year-old has been getting better with age as he will look to lead the line for France in Qatar.

Odds of up to 15/1 can be found for the Real Madrid forward to take home the Golden Boot with 12/1 looking like the common number of most popular bookmakers.

Golden Ball

Luka Modric picked up the last Golden Ball victory in 2018 when Croatia reached the final as they lost to France. Historically, the Golden Ball winner isn’t necessarily an attacking player – they can play all over the pitch as per Modric, Zinedine Zidane in 2006 and Oliver Khan in 2002 – so we will be picking Kevin De Bruyne to bring this title home.

The Manchester City midfielder has often been talked about as one of the best midfielders in world football and will finally have the chance to replicate this name in Qatar. For years, De Bruyne has sat at the top of his game in the Premier League and is yet to win anything with his native side of Belgium.

Odds of 14/1 would be very favourable for the 31-year-old to come away with a trophy this year with early talks of a strong bid for World player of the year next year – a strong World Cup performance would only enhance these chances.

We would also like to mention Vinicius Junior under this category who is set to endure a strong tournament with Brazil. The Real Madrid winger has the world at his feet at the Santiago Bernabeu and is often described as one of the best players in the world for his age of 22.

20/1 odds can be found for Vinicius to end the tournament on a high note and with a favourable price – we think that this could have some fantastic value behind it.

Golden Glove

Essentially, the Golden Glove is the goalkeeper who manages the cleanest sheets of the competition – a special nod to their own structured defence and not necessarily their own performances.

Brazil's keeper Alisson is currently a strong favourite to pick up this award where odds of 4/1 can be viewed. He will be expected to have a strong tournament with a tough defence in front of him, with plenty of depth.

Emiliano Martinez could also be seen as a favourable option with odds of around 8/1 showing for the Argentinian.
