FIFA Qatar World Cup Odds: All You Need To Know

The FIFA 2022 Qatar World Cup occupies the attention of the world. With the draw for the group stage completed, we are closer to the World Cup kick-off. Only two teams are pending to be decided in the playoff games New Zealand vs. Costa Rica and the AFC Fourth Round Winner vs. Peru.

Due to the summer heat of the Persian Gulf country, FIFA decided to move the World Cup tournament to take action from November 21 to December 18, 2022. For this reason, the calendars of the various domestic leagues around the world will be affected next season to accommodate the World Cup. 

The stage is ready, and everyone wants to take advantage of the best World Cup odds at BetPhoenix Sportsbook. So register now  and enjoy the best World Cup props and bonuses.

How to Bet on the World Cup?

Because the World Cup draws 517 million viewers, with more than 1.1 billion people tuning in over its 90 minutes, it is a massive sporting event worldwide. So what better way to improve your viewing experience than having some money on the line, right?

World Cup odds can be very exciting once you get into the swing of things. So even though they seem tricky at first, they are pretty easy if you learn the World Cup betting basics.

There are plenty of World Cup odds available. Rather than simply having the chance to bet on a game's outcome, many props and micro bets are available. For example, you can bet on which team or player will be the first to score, the total number of goals in a game, etc.

This section will explain how to bet on the World Cup, how World Cup odds work, place bets, and read World Cup betting odds.

Moneyline Bets

The most basic option which you choose the winning team to win outright, or in some cases, a draw. Moneyline bets pay more when you bet the underdog to win and pay less if you bet on the favorite. 

World Cup 2-Way Moneyline

2-Way Moneyline is the most popular among punters. The simplicity is the biggest pro of this betting type where the bettor picks a winner. The Draw option is not available in a 2-way money line betting. You have to pick a winner. If the game does finish tied, the ticket is a push, and the bet is refunded.

World Cup 3-Way Moneyline

3-Way Moneyline, often written as 1×2, you are given three final game outcomes to bet on the game. You pick and bet on the home team to win, the away team to win, or you can bet on a draw.

World Cup Point Spreads (Handicap Odds)

Bookmakers handicap the favorite and underdog by a specific number of goals they need to win or lose the game. For example, if a side is given a 2.5-goal handicap and wins by a score of 2:0, you will lose the bet.

World Cup Totals, Over/Under Totals

This type of bet is generally called totals or over/under betting. You are not required to bet on the winner but on the match's outcome. You're betting over or under on how many total combined goals both teams will score. Usually, the total lines include a complete number plus half a goal. This ensures that the total amount is more than or less than the number shown on the line. 

Half-time/Full-Time Bet

In a Half Time/Full-Time bet, you are betting on more than one outcome needed for it to be a winner. You can pick the home team to win the game but the away team to win the half or vice versa, but the selection order must be precise to win the bet. 

Teams to Score

You can predict whether the home, away, or both teams score with this option. If you don't believe that any team will score, you can make such a wager.

Correct Score

The correct score bet type is self-explanatory: you need to predict the game's correct score.

Goal Scorer

With this option, you will be able to pick the player who is most likely to score a goal in the game. The odds will vary depending on the players' position. The odds of an attacker scoring a goal will be higher than the odds of a defender, but you can take risks by choosing a player who doesn't often score and cash big.

How to Read World Cup Betting Odds

Now that we covered the different World Cup betting types let's show you how to read the odds and payouts.

The odds are important to know because they show you:

  • The possibility of each outcome.

  • The amount you could win by how much you risk.

No matter the type of bet you want to make, you will see odds in front of each betting option. The most common odds style in the US is called American Odds, but sometimes you'll see fractional and decimal odds. 

American Odds in Soccer

The odds are posted as numbers preceded by a plus (+) or (-) and will start from 100 upwards into the thousands.

The following are the most significant aspects of American soccer odds to be aware of:

Plus sign indicates the underdog (less favorite team), and the figure shows how much money you will earn for every $100 you risk.

The Minus sign indicates the favorite (team more likely to win), and the figure shows how much you must risk winning $100.

Take a look at a 3-way money line bet on a game between Brazil and USA to show you how it works:

  • USA +325

  • Brazil -130

  • Draw +250

In this 3-way moneyline bet scenario, you can bet on either a team to win, lose, or draw.

The odds posted beside each sign represent the payouts for a winning bet when risking $100 or the amount needed to win $100. In this case, Brazil is the favorite because of the minus (-) in front of the 130. These odds tell us that for every $100 we want to win, we need to risk $130.

On the other hand, a $100 bet on the USA would pay $325, and a $100 bet on a draw would pay $250 because of the plus (+) in front of the odds.

Please Note: American odds use $100 base units. You are not required to wager $100. You can bet any amount you want, and the odds will tell you how much you'll win.

The World Cup is a tournament where the regular suspects typically dominate. As a result, when reading World Cup odds, you'll see a lot of the same names as the favorites. Brazil, Argentina, France, Spain, and Germany have a history of performing well at the world's most prestigious sporting event.

Now that you know how to bet on the World Cup, you must be eager to learn how the tournament works.

How does the FIFA Qatar World Cup 2022 work?

Group Stage

Thirty-two (32) teams will participate in the group stage (although we will have to wait for the playoffs in June to meet them all), and the tournament will last almost a month. The 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup will kick off on Monday, November 21, with Qatar's host team playing in the opening match at the 60,000 capacity Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, and the final game will be played at the 80,000-seater Lusail Iconic Stadium on Sunday, December 18, 2022.

The 32 teams competing were randomly drawn into eight groups of four teams. Each team will play a round-robin against the other three teams in the group. A team receives three points if it wins. If it loses, it receives 0 points, while a tie earns each team 1 point. This means there are many matches to bet on in the World Cup.

Qatar 2022 World Cup Group Stage

Knockout Stage

The group winners and runners-ups in each group will move to the knockout round of 16 and face each other in the following format: 

Winner Group A vs. Runner-up Group B

Winner Group C vs. Runner-up Group D

Winner Group E vs. Runner-up Group F

Winner Group G vs. Runner-up Group H

Winner Group B vs. Runner-up Group A

Winner Group D vs. Runner-up Group C

Winner Group F vs. Runner-up Group E

Winner Group H vs. Runner-up Group G

The draw is weighted so that no more than two European teams may be placed in the same group, and no more than one team from each of the other represented confederations can be placed in each of the other groups. 

If two (or more) teams finish the group Round with the same points, the following tiebreaker scenarios are considered:

  • Goal differential between the two teams (goals scored - goals allowed) in all of the group matches.

  • Most goals scored in all group matches.

If the tie persists after the tiebreakers, the situation becomes more specific:

  1. Total points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned.

  2. Goal Difference between teams concerned.

  3. Most goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned.

  4. The total points have deductions based on Yellow and Red cards as follows:

    1. First Yellow Card will result in 1 point deduction.

    2. Second Yellow Card (Indirect Red): will result in 3 points deduction.

    3. Direct Red Card will result in 4 points deduction.

    4. A Yellow Card and Direct Red will result in 5 points deduction.

If there are still tied after all of that, then a random draw decides the team that advances.

The tournament will continue through the knockout stages (Round of 16, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Final) before a champion is crowned. A third-place playoff match will be held at the Khalifa International Stadium in Al Rayyan on Saturday, December 17.
