World Cup: Preliminary Betting Tips

Posted on by SoccerPunter

The FIFA World Cup is held every four years, with the 22nd edition coming up in 2022. In a fantastic four-week showdown, the 32 national teams belonging to the FIFA member association will compete to win the title of world champions.

The World Cup will occur between November 21st and December 18th, 2022, and be hosted in Qatar. For the first time, the World Cup will be held in an Arab country.

Whether you are an avid football fan or new to watching and supporting the sport, it’s vital to have betting strategies in place if you are wanting to bet on soccer. We’ve put together these tips to prepare you for the coming competition and help you get your World Cup betting game on point.


Though the World Cup is set for 2022, the qualifiers began in March 2021. As things stand, the current bookmakers’ favourites to win the World Cup are five-time World Cup holders Brazil, with France and Britain next in line in the betting. Close contenders to mention for this spot are Spain, Germany, Argentina, England, Portugal, the Netherlands and Italy.

Factors to consider when choosing your teams

No betting strategy is foolproof, and doing your homework into the teams playing is essential. Here are some things to note:


It is important to note that average scores in the World Cup are high, averaging around 2.94 goals in the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup. This number is driven high due to face-offs between the top countries and their lesser-skilled counterparts. It is hard to gauge precisely what these scores will be when betting though, and when the games are more evenly matched, the scores are too. For this reason, it is better to focus on the evenly matched top team games when betting on both teams to score.

Team Form

It is essential to factor in the form of the team when considering your World Cup bets. If a team is consistently struggling to get results, chances are they are not a great option to back when placing your wager.

Home or Away

A key factor of the kind of play you’ll see is whether the game is at home or away. Many teams fail to produce results on away pitches, and some perform less favourably at home. It is critical to investigate which teams function better in which kind of setting so that you can plan your betting strategy.


Take a look at the lineup for the games ahead. If a solid key player is going to be absent from a game, this could affect the whole teams’ performance and needs to be factored into your betting strategy.

Find the best odds

Once you have selected your teams to support, find the bookmaker with the best odds to net you the highest possible odds and return on your wager.


Football is a fast-paced, high stakes sport with plenty of scope for bettors to launch a successful betting campaign. If you do your homework and base your wagers on sound information and investigation, you will be well on your way to a winning World Cup betting strategy.
