Nobody has successfully defended the World Cup title since Brazil did it back in the 1960s, can France end that run? Will Europe continue to dominate and win its 5th straight tournament? How do the South American fare and how far can the United States go? Let’s analyze everything!

Our Pick for 2022 World Cup

With one of the most star-studded teams, there’s a reason Brazil is the number one contender with the oddsmakers to lift this year’s World Cup. Right now, they are the team to beat in international football with 7 wins in a row heading into Qatar. 20 years have passed since their last World Cup win and with the likes of Neymar, Vinicius Junior and Alisson at their disposal they have a really solid chance to change that this year. The dominance of European teams has to come to an end at some point and Brazil are more than capable of ending their streak.

Another South American team I like is Argentina at +700 odds. This could very well be Lionel Messi’s last dance, by the time the next World Cup rolls around he will be 39 years old. The Albiceleste are coming off a Copa America win in 2021 where they netted 12 goals in 7 matches while conceding only 3 and holding Brazil to a clean sheet in the Final. Starting the tournament against Saudi Arabia is also a good sign, as they can get off to a winning start against a lesser team. The talent on this team is immense so they shouldn’t have any difficulties beating either of Mexico or Poland in the remaining two games. After a disappointing campaign in Russia 4 years ago, it is time for the Argies to go deep at a major tournament once again.

Our Outsider Pick for 2022 World Cup

After a historic run in the 2018 World Cup played in Russia, Croatia is once again hailed as one of the dark horses to win by many pundits and for good reason. Their captain and leader Luka Modric is still producing at a high level both at Real Madrid as well as the national team. They just clinched a place in the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League and are currently on a 4-game win streak which includes 2 wins over Denmark and an away win at France. With young, talented and success hungry new players such as Šutalo, Gvardiol, Sosa, Livaković mixed in with the likes of experienced veterans like Modrić, Perišić, Brozović and Kovačić I feel like the Croats can once again go far. You can back them at +5000 to go all the way in Qatar.

What you need to know about World Cup Winner Picks

Teams are required to submit their final 23-26 squads by November 13th. Prior to that each nation has a provisional squad of 55 players. With league games being played on a condensed schedule around the globe, chances of injury are higher than usual as we prepare for this World Cup. The odds are unlikely to drastically change with 50 days left until kick-off, but a major injury could always have an impact. Odds are more likely to vary after the tournament starts, depending on how each team performs. If you feel confident about a certain team to win, there is no wrong time to place your bet.

What are the odds of the United States winning the World Cup?

A total of 14 teams are ahead of the United States according to the oddsmakers to win the World Cup and I’d say that is fairly reasonable considering the level of talent in their team. After missing out on the 2018 edition, a new young core led by Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams made sure they qualified this time around. They are located in Group B, alongside England, Iran and Wales, who I believe will be their main competitor to finish 2nd behind England. The thing that should worry the Americans is the fact that they have only 1 win in their previous 5 games played, so avoiding a loss against Wales in the opener will be key if they plan on advancing to the Round of 16. At +10000 they are one of the outsiders, but then again fairytales are always possible, so why not place a small wager on them?

What are the odds of Canada winning the World Cup?

Ranked only 20th at +15000 odds to win the World Cup, Canada is one of the outsiders at this year’s tournament and that is mainly because they are in a group together with one of the favorites Belgium, the runners-up from 2018 Croatia and one of the best teams from Africa Morocco. Advancing from the group will be a task in itself, as the Canadians don’t have much experience at this staving having only qualified for the first time since 1986. They are yet to score a goal at the World Cup, so let’s see them achieve that before we make any predictions on them advancing to the Round of 16. The first game in the group stage for Canada will be against Belgium on the 23rd of November.

What are the odds of Mexico winning the World Cup?

Similarly to Canada, Mexico ranks in the middle of the pack in terms of odds at +15000 to win it all. Together with Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Poland they make Group C and the oddsmakers have them ranked 3rd to win the group at +500 odds. Winning the opening group game against Poland would do wonders for them as in my opinion that will be their main opponent for 2nd place in the group, as I have Argentina advancing as group winners. Mexico has never beaten Argentina and with the likes of Lionel Messi still being in top form it will be difficult to do so here as well. Against their final opponent Saudi Arabia they should win as in 5 meetings so far they have 4 wins and 1 draw. In terms of form, Mexico has 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in their last 5 games in preparation for the World Cup. They will play two more friendlies before going to Qatar, against Iraq and Sweden. Their opening match at the World Cup is on November 22nd vs Poland.
