FIFA World Cup odds and predictions
FIFA World Cup odds, The Action Network’s Nick Hennion discusses his two finest futures bets for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Soccer bettors are three months away from the commencement of the 2022 FIFA World Cup odds in Qatar. Despite the fact that the domestic schedule is in full gear, there are several possibilities to participate in the current World Cup futures market.
Brazil (+500) is now the favorite to win in Qatar, followed by reigning champions France (+550) and European championship runner-up England (+700). Argentina (+700), Spain (+750), and Germany (+950) round out the present market’s single-digit values at FIFA World Cup odds.
But we’re not here to advise you on the best choices among the favorites. Rather, I’m here to reveal my two greatest picks from the lower odds. Let’s have a look at those options. All odds are provided by Fanduel Sportsbook and are current at the time of writing.
Denmark (+3200) is the best bet
The 2021 European Championship semifinalists are in the same group as France, although they have a very high ceiling at FIFA World Cup odds. Denmark finished third at the European Championships in terms of expected goals, with 1.55 expected goals per 90 minutes. Furthermore, among the teams that advanced to the quarterfinals, manager Kasper Hjulmand’s team ended with the third-best predicted goal difference per 90 minutes, according to fbref.com.
Denmark then completely dominated World Cup Qualifying, although against a very weak group. In ten qualifying games, Denmark went 9-1-0 (W-L-D) with a +27 goal difference at the FIFA World Cup odds. Denmark had a +13 goal differential in the remaining seven qualifying games after the Euros, compared to a +15 difference on significant scoring opportunities.
Furthermore, I believe Denmark has an excellent chance of winning this group, particularly after defeating France in France. Denmark won the major scoring chances fight 4-3 against a French squad that included all of Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe, and Antoine Griezmann.
Denmark could improve its underlying offensive numbers now that Christian Eriksen is fully recovered, while depending on defender Simon Kjaer and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to anchor the defense at the FIFA World Cup odds. Play the Danes at odds greater than 30/1.
Senegal (+10000) is the second best bet
Despite the fact that no African team has ever won the World Cup, this number is too amazing to pass up.
Senegal won the African Cup of Nations in January, led by Bayern Munich winger Sadio Mane, Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly, and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, with a +13 advantage in huge scoring opportunities in seven matches.
They are now in a (relatively) easy group in Qatar at the FIFA World Cup odds. The Netherlands should provide a test to Senegal manager Aliou Cisse’s team, but I doubt Senegal will be eliminated from the group stage at the hands of either Ecuador or hosts Qatar. In fact, I believe Senegal has a greater chance of winning this group than others, since their assault should be able to match the quality of the Netherlands.
Senegal would obviously have to win the group to have a chance of reaching the quarterfinals or beyond, since finishing second would (probably) get England in the round of 16.
But, at 100/1, I’m ready to take a chance on a club that’s filled with quality and has a goalie capable of leading the group into future stages if given the opportunity on FIFA World Cup odds betting.
