World Cup odds reflect which team is predicted to be the outright winner, which is a type of futures bet. For this reason, reading World Cup odds is very straightforward. In the American odds system, a futures bet is provided with a plus (+) sign in front. The odds show what a punter stands to win if they bet $100 (though it’s common to wager less than $100).
Let’s take a look at an example. For the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup betting odds, France is the +500 favorite to win the tournament. Those who wager $100 on the team would win $500, or $50 for a $10 bet. England, on the other hand, has odds of +2000 to win. A $100 bet on England would yield a $2,000 payout.
Betting on soccer World Cup odds is one of the most popular ways to bet on soccer and sports in general. Every four years, punters from around the globe wager on futures bets to predict who will be named the world champion. Given the event’s popularity, there are a near-endless variety of ways to bet on World Cup odds.
Let’s cover two of the most popular bets in the FIFA World Cup: prop bets and futures bets. Futures bets cover the outcome of an event that’s scheduled in the distant future (such as the World Cup), while prop bets cover any number of game-related outcomes aside from who wins.
In the case of World Cup odds, most futures bets are also prop bets, as they take place in the distant future. As the World Cup unfolds, odds will shorten as sportsbooks analyze teams as they compete. Competitive odds are harder to find as the World Cup leaves the group stage, which makes futures betting a popular choice for bettors.
With hundreds of bets available, it’s hard to narrow down options for soccer World Cup odds. With 2022 fast approaching, many punters have turned their eye to World Cup futures bets (more on this in the section below).
Others focus on daily bets that are offered after the tournament commences. Unlike futures bets, these World Cup betting odds are created with full knowledge of how a team is performing with respect to injuries, weather, and other live updates.
Daily bets cover a wide range of topics, from full-time results to total goals to first goal scorer. These are technically prop bets but, as they’re placed shortly before an event, aren’t considered a futures bet. Check in with OddsChecker's picks page to see which wagers are high in value and which picks are looking smart as the FIFA World Cup action unfolds.
As mentioned above, futures bets offer the largest margin of winnings for punters—if they can predict the right team, of course. Futures bets on World Cup odds are offered on a range of markets, from outright winner of the tournament to prop bets that cover which players will receive awards like the Golden Boot and the Golden Ball.
Popular futures bets on the FIFA World Cup include:
• Group stage winners
• Stage of elimination (when a team is sent home)
• Finalists (aka to reach final)
• Outright winner
• Top scorer (Golden Boot)
• Top player (Golden Ball)
• Exact margins of victory in a given match
• Which player will score first or last in a given match
The USA has World Cup odds of +10000 to win the event. This means a punter who wagers $100 on the team would win $10,000 should the US national team defy expectations and be named global champions. Keep in mind that many punters use a free bets offer to back major underdogs.
The USA must advance through qualifying matches facing North American, Central American, and Caribbean nations in FIFA’s CONCACAF conference. The US has advanced to the final round of qualifying matches, but will have to place in the top three of eight teams in CONCACAF to secure a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Qatar is hosting the 2022 World Cup. It will be the first time the nation has hosted a World Cup. Already, pundits are casting an eye toward the local climate as they prepare their World Cup betting odds. As one of the hottest countries to ever host the World Cup, it’s assumed that most teams will struggle to compete in the desert temperatures.
