World Cup 2022 outright winner odds, Qatar 2022

World Cup 2022 winner odds & power rankings

With almost all the qualifiers known and the group-stage draw done, we’re taking a look at the World Cup 2022 winner odds for Qatar.

Due to fears over heat problems, this year’s event will kick off on November 21 and the final will take place at Lusail Iconic Stadium on December 18.

That won’t affect the amount of interest in the greatest show on turf, though, and these are the leading contenders to lift the trophy:

1 BRAZIL @ 6.0

It is now 20 years since Brazil claimed their fifth outright triumph in Japan and South Korea, with fourth place their best effort since then, but the Selecao are again at the top of most pundits’ power rankings.

An excellent qualifying campaign has raised hopes of a return to the glory days, although the swashbuckling swagger of the old Samba Stars has been replaced by a more technical team ethos under Tite, so getting past Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in Group G should be okay.

Talismanic frontman Neymar is a throwback to the skill-based set-ups, though, and the form shown by Vinicius Junior with Real Madrid suggests the flying winger could be a sensation at this tournament.

2 ENGLAND @ 6.5

The Three Lions are still chasing that elusive second success to add to their 1966 triumph on home turf but they have been knocking on the door at major tournaments in recent years under Gareth Southgate.

England reached the semi-finals four years ago and were runners-up to Italy at last year’s European Championship, so the belief is there that they can compete at the highest level.

A well-drilled defence, great energy in midfield and some mercurial talents out wide up front all provide the platform for Harry Kane to keep banging in the goals.

3 FRANCE @ 6.0

The holders were outstanding at Russia 2018 and many of that squad are still around, so experience will be a crucial asset in what could prove challenging conditions.

Les Bleus will be concerned by the likes of Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann facing difficult periods at club level, while Olivier Giroud will be 36 when this event takes place.

However, Karim Benzema is coming off a career-best season and Kylian Mbappe is a genuine superstar, so progressing from a straightforward pool should provide few issues.

4 SPAIN @ 9.0

La Roja have put in a couple of disappointing efforts since being crowned champions in 2010, in between two European Championship triumphs.

However, they impressed in finishing third at the delayed Euro 2020 and Luis Enrique has reunited Spain’s technically talented squad.

Although possibly lacking star individuals, they invariably enjoy plenty of possession and that will be helpful if it is still humid in the winter months.

5 ARGENTINA @ 10.0

La Albiceleste lifted the trophy in 1978 and 1986 and have twice been runners-up since, most recently in 2014.

Success at last year’s Copa America competition and a professional approach to qualifying have given head coach Lionel Scaloni a fine preparation.

Lionel Messi would love to land the big one in order to confirm his place alongside Diego Maradona as an Argentina legend and nobody will be scared of facing Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia in Group C.

6 GERMANY @ 11.0

Joachim Low’s long reign as manager ended on a low note but the 2014 winners will be rejuvenated and eyeing a record-equalling fifth success under former Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick.

Securing nine wins out of 10 in qualifying showed Die Mannschaft mean business again and there will be the usual blend of pace, power and technical know-how in a well-balanced team.

Being drawn in the same pool as Spain makes things interesting, but Germany always command respect at major tournaments.

7 NETHERLANDS @ 12.0

Holland have been the bridesmaids on three occasions but never the bride and experienced head coach Louis van Gaal will hope to put that right at Qatar 2022.

On-field general Virgil van Dijk can pull together some promising young players and the Dutch showed they do not lack spirit when coming through a few tricky tests in qualifying.

8 BELGIUM @ 13.0

After sitting out two renewals, the Red Devils reached the quarter-finals in Brazil and then finished third in Russia, so they are definitely going in the right direction and look generously priced in the World Cup 2022 winner odds.

Some sceptics will suggest Belgium’s golden generation is past its best and there are quite a few now aged 30 or older, but Kevin De Bruyne for one looks as good as ever at club level.

Record goalscorer Romelu Lukaku often saves his best form for the international stage, so Croatia, Morocco and Canada had better watch out in Group F.

9 PORTUGAL @ 13.0

Can Cristiano Ronaldo still produce the old magic at 37 when facing the world’s best teams? Maybe he won’t have to!

Portugal’s supporting cast continues to go from strength to strength and the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Diogo Jota and Joao Felix will be at the peak of their powers.

10 DENMARK @ 26.0

After such a dramatic run to the European Championship semi-finals following Christian Eriksen’s near-tragic episode, Denmark will again carry lots of neutral support.

They certainly impressed in qualifying with nine wins out of 10 and only three goals conceded, so the Danes are most fancied outside of the perennial superpowers in the World Cup 2022 outright winner odds.
