Celebrate the Ultimate Football Festival with Amazing World Cup 2022 OddsPublished November 17, 2022 by Florin P
The World Cup 2022 begins on Sunday and football fans have hundreds of betting markets to consider, competitive odds, and exclusive deals at top bookmakers.
World Cup 2022 is one of the most controversial championships in tournament history. Despite the numerous scandals that preceded and are likely to continue during the event, it provides excellent betting opportunities to football fans. 1xBet and bet365 sports are two of the bookmakers that dedicate ample coverage to the event, and they have already posted the odds for the group stage matches.
Qatar and Ecuador Play the Opening Match
Qatar has few chances to advance from the group stage but has high expectations from the opening match. Ecuador is one of the weaker opponents in the group but even so, the South Americans are credited with the first chance and odds of 7/5. Home pitch advantage will be necessary but not decisive, so we trust the visitors to cause the first upset for the home crowd and kickstart their campaigns with a victory.
England Takes on Iran in Early Thriller
There is a lot of tension surrounding the match between England and Iran, although the Europeans are the clear favorites. The two teams have never met before, and England is expected to pick up all three points and convert the odds of 7/20. 1xBet offers massive odds of 11/1 on the visitors to cause an upset, but we expect a low-scoring match, with a decent likelihood of drawer at odds of 4/1.
Senegal and the Netherlands Play Group A Derby
The most likely teams to advance from Group A are Senegal and Netherlands, who meet in the opening round. The Europeans are firing on all cylinders, so 1xBet justly credits them with the first chance and odds of 2/5. Their opponents are a team of extraordinary offensive potential, but they struggle defensively and have difficulty rebounding after conceding the first goal, hence the odds of 5/1.
USA Returns to the World Cup with Wales Clash
The United States are back at a major international football event, but they will likely make a deep run in the tournament. The Americans are fairly optimistic ahead of the match against Wales, which looks like a balanced encounter. Punters would get identical odds of 9/5 at bet365 sports on each team to win and a similar value for the draw, which was the most likely result in the last five games played by either team.
Poland and Mexico Lock Horns in Coin Flip Match
Argentina is expected to win Group C, which leaves Mexico and Poland to fight for second place. The two teams meet on Tuesday in the most anticipated match of the group, and they have identical chances of winning. This results in odds of 9/5 offered by bet365 sports on each squad to advance. We expect a low-scoring match and like the odds of 2/1 on the teams splitting points.
