Who's going to win the Qatar 2022 World Cup?

BRAZIL

You can be forgiven for thinking Brazil's glory days are over having been knocked out in the quarter-finals in three of the last four FIFA World Cups. But the South Americans have been quietly mounting a comeback to their form of old, topping their Qatar 2022 qualifying group, winning 14 of their 17 games and drawing the rest.

Going back further, in their last 30 matches, Brazil has only lost once and kept an incredible 22 clean sheets. With a roster of players that includes Neymar, Fabinho, Thiago Silva and two of the world's best goalkeepers in Alisson and Ederson, it's hard to argue with the talent on display in the Brazilian national side.

ENGLAND

After the bitter disappointment of losing the Euro 2020 final against Italy, the Three Lions will have to pick themselves up and rise to the unwaveringly high expectations of a nation who haven't seen World Cup silverware since 1966.

The Three Lions have been drawn in Group B alongside USA, Iran and Wales, which will be a boost to their confidence in making a big push in Qatar 2022. With players like Harry Kane (favourite for the golden boot), Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish on the team sheet, they might just have the goods to finally bring it home!

FRANCE

The defending World Cup champions are the second-favourites behind Brazil to lift the trophy again. Les Bleus probably have the deepest squad of any side in the tournament and will take encouragement from their Nations League victory over Spain in 2021. With their star players like Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema in the form of their life, there's no reason not to expect France will be right in there again when things kick off in Qatar.

QATAR 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP - GROUP WINNER PREDICTIONS

There is no clear "group of death" in the 2022 Qatar World Cup which would seemingly make the winners slightly easier to predict in the tournament. Our prediction is that most groups will be won by the favourite aside from Group E and Group F, which we expect Germany and Croatia to win respectively. The bookmakers are expecting Spain (Group E) and Belgium (Group F) are expected to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup but we see some value in other teams winning their respective groups.

QATAR 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP - ROUND 1 PREDICTIONS

In Round 1 of the Group Stages at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, there are four matches in each group taking place between 21 and 28 November. There are a few teams like England and Argentina that we expect to dominate these opening fixtures and others we think might not quite live up to the hype.

betway qatar 2022 world cup group stage odds south africa

To get things started from a betting standpoint, we will take a multibet combining a few fixtures which include England (to beat Iran), Argentina (to beat Saudi Arabia), Brazil (to beat Serbia) and Croatia (to beat Canada) at odds of 3.92.
