Favourites for World Cup: World Cup Winner Odds
While the tournament is not quite upon us yet, you can still place bets at Betiton on a variety of World Cup markets. We offer our punters a wide variety of markets and odds, so no matter the type of World Cup bets that you want to place, we guarantee that we have got your backs.
So, no matter whether you are looking at the England World Cup odds or the odds on offer for the likes of Brazil or Argentina to go on and lift the title, you can be sure that there are many World Cup 2022 betting odds that you can make use of on this sportsbook of ours. Fans of Italy, the current European Champions, will have to put their money on another team to win since the Azzurri were surprisingly knocked out in the Play-Offs by North Macedonia. Therefore, you will not find any FIFA World Cup online betting markets and odds for Italy. Colombia, Egypt, Sweden, Chile, and Nigeria were some of the other top teams that failed to qualify for this prestigious competition.
However, despite their absence, there are plenty of other football World Cup betting options for all the teams that managed to qualify for this prestigious competition. If you are the type of football bettor that likes to do a spot of outright betting, then check out the table below that shows our World Cup 2022 winner odds.

N.B. These World Cup winner odds are correct at the time of writing.

What Are FIFA World Cup Betting Markets?
Before you start a WC betting journey you need to know what markets are. To put it simply, FIFA World Cup betting markets are the different betting options that we have made available on our sportsbook. These are what you will be choosing from whenever you do a spot of World Cup 2022 betting.
Markets can be for anything that happens during the course of the competition. For instance, you can find markets for the teams that you think will make it to the quarter-finals stage, the two finalists, or the top scorer in the tournament. Finally, you should know that next to our markets you can see the World Cup odds today for that particular market, so you can quickly figure out the type of profit that you can land should place a wager that goes on to win.
Most Popular World Cup Bets
When you bet on World Cup 2022, we have a wide variety of different betting markets and they each come with their own winning conditions. You are obviously free to have a look through the selection of the World Cup betting 2022 markets that we have available on our sportsbook, but below we are going to take a look at those that are most popular among our existing customers.
World Cup Match Betting
This market is sometimes called full-time result betting, win/draw/win betting, 1×2 betting, or match result betting. With such a market, your aim is straightforward – you just have to try and predict the team that will go on to win the match and, if you manage to guess correctly, you will earn a profit. However, there is the chance that a game ends in a draw, so do keep that in mind when making use of such a market.
For the Over/Under goals market, we will simply predict the number of goals that we think will be scored in a particular game, and then you simply need to bet on whether you think that the final number of goals scored in the game in question will be under or over that number. So, if you put your money on the Over 2.5 goal market for a game and there are three goals scored, you win your bet. If there are only two goals scored, then you will lose your bet.
Handicap betting is something that gives bettors better odds since they put a handicap on a stronger team, thus levelling the playing field somewhat. Sometimes, handicap betting is known as spread betting, so keep this in mind for future gambling sessions. When it comes to an Asian handicap, there is a handicap placed on both teams, which tips the scales in the favourite team’s favour, improving your odds. One thing to remember with Asian handicap betting is that draws are removed from the equation.
World Cup Winner Betting
Also known as “World Cup Outright betting“, this betting market is quite self-explanatory – you will be putting money on the country that you think will go on to win the World Cup. We offer a full range of World Cup online betting markets and odds on World Cup winner countries as you saw in a previous section of this guide.
World Cup Qualifiers Betting
As we said above, each team, apart from the host country, has to qualify for the World Cup by taking part in a series of regional qualifiers. These matches, although not technically part of the FIFA World Cup, can still provide a lot of entertainment, and top bookmakers, such as Betiton, offer their punters a variety of markets and odds for betting on these matches.
While it is obviously now too late to indulge in some World Cup qualifiers betting, it is still good for you to be aware of the fact that you have the option of placing bets on these matches. After all, the next World Cup qualifiers for the next edition of the FIFA World Cup will be upon us in what seems like no time, and you might want to do some football betting on the matches on offer.
We always offer a variety of top World Cup odds that you can use when the qualifying stages come around, so be sure to check back with us to see what we are offering our customers.
World Cup Group Betting
What we love about FIFA betting online is the fact that there are many different facets of the competition that you can put your money on. Not only is it possible for you to place bets on the overall winner, individual games, and qualifying matches, but you can also place bets on the individual groups themselves.
It might come as a shock to hear that there are many different World Cup group betting markets that you can make use of at Betiton. For instance, you can put your money on the team that you think will finish bottom of their group, the team that you think will finish top of their group, whether a team will qualify from their group and plenty more. Since the group stage of this prestigious footballing event is nearly upon us, you should not hesitate to check out the various betting options that we offer.
World Cup Specials Betting
These types of bets are also known as proposition bets, and they have become extremely popular in all facets of football betting nowadays. With specials, you are betting on outcomes that might or might not happen during a game. As a result, such events do not usually have an impact on the final outcome of the match.
For instance, a very popular football special bet is betting on the player that you think will score the game’s first goal. If your chosen player scores the game’s first goal, then you win – the final result does not matter nor does the number of goals that are scored altogether. Other World Cup specials betting markets that you will find at Betiton during the World Cup in Qatar include player to be booked, first team to score, whether there will be a goal in both halves, and the half that will have the most goals.
Player of the Tournament Betting
There are plenty of awards that a player can get their hands on during the World Cup if they perform well, and this includes the likes of the Golden Ball, the Golden Boot and the Player of the Tournament.
By now, you should not be surprised to hear that you have the option of betting on the player that you think will go on to receive each award. Such betting markets are hard to call, so if you manage to, you can be certain that you will be landing yourself a lovely profit since the World Cup 2022 Young Player of the Tournament odds will always be high due to the difficulty level of getting such a bet correct.
Golden Boot Betting
The Golden Boot is a trophy that is given to the player that scores the most goals in a tournament, so when you are betting on this market at the 2022 World Cup, you are putting your money on the player that you believe will score the most goals over the course of the competition. At the current moment in time, Harry Kane is the favourite to top score – England fans will be hoping that this is the case.
There are plenty of really impressive strikers that take part in the World Cup, which means that this market is as exciting as any other market that you will come across when it comes to placing a FIFA World Cup bet. Also, because this is a competitive market thanks to the top footballers that will be fighting it out, you can be certain of finding quality odds on offer for this market right here at Betiton.
So, no matter whether you think this accolade will go to Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, Karim Benzema, or Kylian Mbappe, our sportsbook is chock full of quality Golden Boot odds that you can make use of to bet on some of the best football players in the world.
England World Cup Squad Betting
Other than putting your money on England to finally bring football home for the first time in more than five decades, you can bet on the national team of England in a number of other ways. In our range of England World Cup betting odds, you can place bets on the players that you think Gareth Southgate will call up to his squad, the number of points that you believe the Three Lions will get in their group, whether they will manage to qualify from their group, and so on.
These are not all of the options that you can find on this sportsbook of ours. If you would like a more comprehensive range of the England World Cup odds that we have available, then feel free to have a good look through our World Cup online betting markets.
World Cup Accumulator
In order to be in with a shot of landing a big win when football betting and FIFA World Cup betting, you should think about placing a World Cup accumulator. Accumulators, which are also known as accas or accys, are a type of mega bet since they are made up of a variety of multiple bets. In other words, an accumulator is a wager that gathers multiple wagers into one bet slip.
Accumulator betting has become pretty popular because punters can get a considerable return on a small stake since all of the odds are multiplied together. The more selections that you decide to add to your World Cup accumulator, the larger your potential winnings will be. However, the larger your potential winnings, the slimmer your chances of landing a win will be since all selections have to be right in order for you to win any type of accumulator. If you have a 10-fold acca and you get nine selections right, that one incorrect selection is going to cost you the bet.
How to Understand World Cup 2022 Odds
Understanding World Cup odds betting is vital since these numbers are pivotal when it comes to you deciding on which markets you would like to bet on. By looking at the odds, you can get a good indication as to the probability of an event happening, and how much profit you can make from a winning bet.
The odds on offer are calculated by the individual bookmakers that are offering them, and they are based on the strength of the teams according to how they have played in their previous games and whether they are going to be missing any key players due to injury, sickness, or suspension. With regard to 2022 FIFA World Cup odds, they can be presented in three main formats and we are going to explain each format now for you.
Fractional odds are really popular with Irish and British bookmakers, and they are usually written with a hyphen or a slash. Fractional odds of 7/1 would indicate that you will win €7 for every €1 that you bet and receive your euro back. Therefore, if you decided to stake €10 at odds of 7/1 and you win, you will receive a total payout of €80 – you will make a €70 profit and you will get your €10 stake back to boot.
Decimal odds, also known as European odds, are popular in Europe, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. These are slightly easier to understand and work with than fractional odds since you can spot both the favourites and the underdogs pretty quickly when you are looking at decimal odds. Those with the higher number are the underdogs, while those with the lower numbers are the favourites. Decimal odds indicate the amount that you win for every €1 bet, and the number represents your whole payout and not just the profit. So, if you bet €10 with odds of 7.00, you will get back €70 – a €60e profit and your stake.
As you can tell from the name, this format is popular in the United States. The odds for the favourites are indicated by a minus sign and they tell you the amount that you have to stake in order to win €100. The odds for the underdogs, on the other hand, are highlighted by the plus sign and they tell you how much you will end up winning for every €100 that you stake.

How Does the World Cup Work?
Before the World Cup itself and subsequent betting on it gets underway, there are a number of qualifying rounds that will decide the 32 national teams that will fight it out over the course of a month to win the title. Every region has their own set up for the qualifying rounds, with the qualifying process starting at different times too.
When the 32 places have been filled, eight groups of four teams are created via a random draw. This will be the last World Cup with 32 spots since the 2026 World Cup which is taking place in Canada, Mexico, and the United States will have 48 teams participating from the six confederations. Each group has a Round Robin format, where every team plays each other once.
The two top nations in each group qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament, which includes a Round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, a third-place playoff, and a final. Those of you who like to do some Champions League betting will be familiar with this format.
How Do the World Cup Qualifiers Work?
There are six different regions which the 32 teams can qualify from, but every region does not have the same number of spots at the World Cup available. The six different regions are:
- Europe – UEFA
- Asia – AFC
- Africa – CAF
- Oceania – OFC
- North America – CONCACAF
- South America – CONMEBOL
Europe has some of the best national teams and domestic leagues, so it is granted a total of 13 spots at the World Cup. What about the other regions? Well, Africa has 5 spots, Asia and South America have 4 spots, North America has 3 spots, while the region of Oceania does not have a spot.
For a team from the Oceania region to qualify for this event, they have to win a play-off match. Then there is the host country, which always has the honour of qualifying automatically. Qatar are hosting the 2022 edition of this competition, so they did not need to bother themselves with any qualifiers.
In the next sections of this guide, we are going to look at the various regional bodies that govern in each region and we will also take a closer look at the qualifying procedure that happens in each of the different regions.
World Cup Qualifiers Europe – UEFA
In the European region, there are 55 UEFA nations in total, and all of them get to play in the qualifiers. The qualifiers for this region are divided into two stages as follows:
First Round (Groups): The qualifying teams are divided into ten groups made up of five or six teams. These teams then play each other twice – once at home and once away – and the team that picks up the most points and finishes at the top of the table automatically qualifies for the World Cup.
Second Round (Play-Offs): The ten runners-up and the two best UEFA Nations League teams are then put into three play-off paths that are made up of two semi-final games and a final. The three winners also qualify for the World Cup.
World Cup Qualifiers Africa – CAF
The CAF regulate the African region, and the CAF World Cup qualifiers are split up into three rounds as follows:
First Round: 28 nations, those ranked between 27- 54 in the FIFA World Rankings, are drawn against another team to play home and away. There are 14 matches, and the winners of each match move on to the following stage.
Second Round: 40 nations, those ranked between 1-26 and the 14 winners from the previous round, are put into 10 groups consisting of four teams. Each team plays against the other teams in their group twice, once at home and once away, and the ten winners from each group go through to the final stage.
Third Round: The 10 winners from the Second Round are paired in two-legged games based on each team’s FIFA rankings. The five winners from these matches qualify for the World Cup.
World Cup Qualifiers Asia – AFC
Above we informed you that the region of Asia has four spots available, but they actually have 4.5, and you will soon see why this is the case by reading on.
First Round: Twelve teams, those ranked between 35-46, play home and away matches against one other team, with the six winners moving on to the next round.
Second Round: 40 teams, those ranked between 1-34 and the six winners from the First Round, are split into eight groups of five. The teams in each group play each other twice, and the top team from each group and the four top runners-up advance to the next stage.
Third Round: The 12 victors from the last round are divided into two groups of six teams. Each team plays the other teams twice, and the best two teams from these two groups qualify for the World Cup.
Fourth Round: The two 3rd best teams play in a single game, with the winner qualifying for the Inter-Confederate Play-offs. These are two play-offs that are played between four teams from AFC, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and OFC.
South America World Cup Qualifiers – CONMEBOL
The South American region is also given 4.5 spots, and this region, in our view, has the easiest qualification process. The qualifiers for the CONMEBOL region are played out as follows:
All ten teams are put in one big group, where they play each other twice, once at home and once away. The four teams that finish top of the table qualify for the World Cup, while the fifth team plays in the aforementioned Inter-Confederation play-offs.
World Cup Qualifiers CONCACAF – North, Central American & the Caribbean
Likewise, national teams that fall under the CONCACAF body, those teams from Central America, North America, and the Caribbean, are given 3.5 spots at the event. The qualifiers for this region are split into three rounds as follows:
First Round: 30 nations, those ranked from 6-35 are split into six groups of five. Every team plays the other teams in their group home and away, and the top team at the end of all the matches goes through to the next round.
Second Round: These six winners play in a predetermined home and away match, with the three winners going through to the next stage.
Third Round: 8 nations, the three winners from the Second Round and the top five teams according to the rankings, play against each other both home and away. The top three teams automatically qualify for the World Cup, while the team that comes in fourth place has to try and qualify via the Inter-Confederate Play-offs.
Oceania World Cup Qualifiers – OFC
The Oceania region really does get the short end of the stick since they only receive 0.5 spots. While they usually have a three-round qualifying format, because of the pandemic, they had to use a different format for the FIFA World Cup 2022 OFC Qualifiers, which you can find out more about below:
Since many of the national teams withdrew before playing, eight nations were drawn into two groups of four, with each team playing every team in their group once. The two teams that finished at the top of their tables advanced to a single-leg knockout, with the winner qualifying for the Inter-Confederate Play-Offs.
The usual format for this region is as follows:
First Round: The four lowest-ranked teams play each other in a round-robin format, with the winning nation advancing to the next stage.
Second Round: Eight teams, the winner from the First Round and the other OFC national teams, are split into two groups of four. The top three teams from these two groups will go through to the next stage.
Third Round: The six winners are then put into two groups of three, and they play each other both home and away. The two winning teams from both groups then play a two-legged match, with the winner qualifying for the Inter-Confederate Play-Offs.
