How to bet on the World Cup: Qatar 2022 odds & tips

With Qatar 2022 under way, we’ve put together an easy-to-use guide on how to bet on the World Cup.

Bwin News will be covering all angles on the action from the Middle East, with World Cup 2022 odds available on everything from individual matches to outright winner betting.

For all the latest news, views and predictions, we’ll be providing punters with an in-depth service throughout the tournament.

Let’s take a look at some of the key areas for betting on the World Cup:

Betting on World Cup matches

We’ve already posted our previews for the opening round of group-stage games and will be regularly providing more matches as each group unfolds.

England face Iran in their first match, with USA vs Wales the other clash in Group B, while the early encounters conclude with Brazil vs Serbia.

Backing an underdog to prevail is always exciting and we’ve taken a look at past shocks and potential upsets this time around.

As well as betting on the win/draw/win match results, punters can chase bigger returns by predicting the correct score and seeking out value from other markets.

Half-time/full-time permutations, both teams to score, first or anytime goalscorers and over or under 2.5 goals will be popular World Cup bets.

We’ll also be posting daily football accumulator tips for those who prefer doubles, trebles and multiple bets.

Build Your Bet is another great option for increasing those World Cup odds if you are only watching one match!

World Cup 2022 winner odds

There can be no greater satisfaction than picking out the overall champion and we’ll be tracking the top 10 contenders in the World Cup outright winner odds.

Holders France are fancied by many to retain the trophy, while Brazil are bidding to extend their record tally of triumphs to six.

Argentina have been among the best-backed teams and those wanting to know where most of the money is going can check out our World Cup popular bets piece.

Few will dare write off four-time champions Germany, while Spain, Netherlands and 2018 runners-up Croatia should be buoyed by this year’s Nations League efforts.

As for the England to win the World Cup odds, we’ve taken a more detailed look at their prospects in our individual Three Lions preview.

If you want to hedge your bets, there are markets on which confederation will provide the winner, with UEFA ahead of South America here, plus whether we will see a new champion.

For those who prefer following individual players, the World Cup top goalscorer odds are always worth a look, with Harry Kane trying to become the first back-to-back Golden Boot winner.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the golden oldies towards the head of this market, but France flyer Kylian Mbappe gets the nod in our preview.

World Cup groups betting

Avoiding an early exit is always the first target for every team, from the favourites for outright glory to outsiders merely seeking to survive for as long as possible.

Surprise table toppers are rare, but anyone backing Costa Rica to finish above Uruguay, Italy and England in 2014 will have been handsomely rewarded.

We’ve picked out a 26/1-plus accumulator on all eight pools in Qatar!

Germany were shock basement dwellers four years ago and will be determined to get back on track this time, having reached at least the semi-finals in the four previous renewals.

Bwin has a number of betting markets on each pool, giving punters the chance to back teams to win or just qualify, as well as naming the first two in a straight forecast or any order.

You can even try to predict which group the overall winner will come from, with E featuring Germany and Spain the slight favourite here.

World Cup final betting

Bwin are already offering prices on each team to reach the final or qualify for the last four and that can be a nice safety net instead of going all in on the World Cup 2022 winner odds.

Those confident in their ability to work out how the knockout stages will unfold can even get involved in the name both finalists market.

World Cup betting promotions

To celebrate the greatest show on turf, bwin will be unveiling a whole range of special offers.
