2022 FIFA World Cup Odds Favor Brazil Over France, England

Whether you call it football or soccer, it’s an exciting time to be a fan of the sport. Qualifying matches for the 2022 FIFA World Cup are currently ongoing as the world’s countries are fighting for a prestigious spot in the tournament. The event will take place from November 12 to December 18 in Qatar.

Even though the World Cup is still over a year away from happening, that hasn’t stopped fans and experts from predicting who’ll win it all.

As it stands, Bovada is favoring Brazil to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup at +550 odds. No other country has had the level of success that the Brazilians have when it comes to competing for the World Cup. Brazil’s five tournament wins are a record, with its last victory coming in 2002. Nevertheless, all droughts have to come to an end at some point and the Brazilians seem ready to end it in 2022.

Brazil will also be riding some momentum from their latest Copa America performance. While they didn’t win the tournament, the Brazilians still placed second and will be looking to avenge that loss to Argentina in the finals. Considering how Neymar also hasn’t had that much of a taste at international success, winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup would certainly further his impact on the sport.

France World Cup Odds

France currently sits at +600 odds to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup — the second-best ranking. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, especially considering how the French just won the 2018 World Cup. Now, they’re in for a tough task as no country has won back-to-back World Cups since Brazil did it back in 1958 and 1962.

France hasn’t done much since its World Cup victory, which is why it’ll be up to head coach Didier Deschamps to motivate his team towards a successful defense. Nevertheless, Les Bleus are in a good position to defend their championship. They’re already 2-1-0 during the qualification round, so it looks like they haven’t lost too much of a step in the last couple of years. Nevertheless, only time will tell if it’s enough to win back-to-back FIFA World Cups.

England 2022 FIFA World Cup Odds

Speaking of droughts, it’s been 55 years since England won its last (and only) FIFA World Cup. Now, the Three Lions have +700 odds to snap that skid in 2022. The truth is that England could actually use the win following recent events. As everyone knows by now, the English hosted the postponed 2020 UEFA Euro Cup this year. Just when it seemed like England was going to win the tournament at home, Italy (+900) wound up winning 3-2 on penalties.

Nevertheless, England has a tough road ahead. The country’s best performance at the World Cup since its 1966 victory has been two fourth-place finishes in 1990 and 2018. Beyond that, England hasn’t seen any success as of late. In fact, the English don’t have any other international tournament wins other than their lone World Cup victory. Fortunately, their +700 odds indicate that something could change in Qatar next year.
