The World Cup in Qatar in 2022 will be the biggest sporting event of that year, when for the final time the 32-team version of the tournament will be played for the first time in an Arab country. The World Cup will be held from November - December in 2022 and it will most likely be the last time Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will partake in the event as players.
Eight state of the art venues are under construction and will be finalized for the start of the competition, and even during the pandemic the objective by FIFA is to have all 32 teams qualified for the competition by the middle of next year.
Every four years the World Cup attracts new fans to the game of soccer, but it also attracts bettors who look to win big during the competition. Still, DraftKings has already placed a list of nations so bettors can make future wagers on who will lift the cup when the dust settles come December 2022. Here are the top 5 nations the oddsmakers at DraftKings believe have the best chance at winning the tournament and their chances.
The current World Cup champions begin their quest for a third title when UEFA World Cup qualifying begins on March 24. France has been drawn in a very accessible group and should qualify with no issues. Kylian Mbappé should be the 2022’s tournament’s breakout star as France continues to have a very competitive team.
South America has not won a World Cup since 2002 when Ronaldo led Brazil to their fifth title. Neymar will look to lead his national team back to the top of the soccer World come Qatar 2022. Brazil is coasting through South American qualifiers and will book their place in the tournament sooner rather than later.
Germany is always a favorite to lift the World Cup, despite a dreadful 2018 tournament which saw them ousted in the first round. Germany has the talent but they will be going through a coaching change after the Euro’s so this may not be the German’s cup.
Spain is in an accessible qualification group, with a new mix of young players and veterans the Red Fury will look to have a better 2022 cup. Still, they might be too high up on this list, this is not the Spain of 2010 and it looks like they are still going through a generational change on their national team.
The dark horse for the next World Cup, with a very talented side and a silky style of play Gareth Southgate’s team might finally get over the hump and get the English their second crown. If you like dark horses, then England is your team.
