FIFA World Cup Odds and Prediction:

Brazil is currently ranked as most likely to win the World Cup, and France is a close second
We believe that the Odds are overstated for Brazil given their generally poor performance against European teams in the last two world cups

The biggest sporting festival FIFA World Cup is back for its 22nd edition at the fag end of 2022 as teams across continents battle it out to bask in the highest glory. The 2018 World Cup held in Russia saw France lifting the prestigious trophy while Croatia finished second-best in a tightly contested game.

Coming into this World Cup, Brazil is the top-seeded side while Belgium and France make the top 3 as far as rankings are concerned. As we all are well aware that the rankings are just meant to be on paper, the other 29 sides are equally capable of pulling off the heist on 18th December 2022.

FIFA World Cup Prediction: Format and Seedings

The 2022 edition has 32 teams being divided into 8 groups each group having 4 teams respectively. The UEFA which is mostly consisting of European nations sends 13 teams to the big stage while the AFC has 6 teams in the reckoning for the championship.

Coming to the main draw for this tournament, it was pretty obvious that the top 7 teams would be part of the first pot apart from the hosting nation which is Qatar. The seedings and the fixtures were announced in April 2022 in Doha.

The defending champions French team has been given a moderate draw with Denmark and Tunisia in the same group but the focus is on Group E consisting of Spain, Germany, Japan, and New Zealand/Costa Rica which is a potential group of death in this edition. On the other hand, the runners-up Croatia have a tough nut to crack in Belgium but the challenges of Morocco and Canada don’t seem to be threatening.

On the other hand, the South American champions have a relatively easy draw whereas the English side is trying to break the jinx this time around with Wales, the US, and Iran in their group.

FIFA World Cup Odds and Prediction: Quick recap and format for 2022 edition

The 2018 season was a humdinger one with the tournament filled with thrillers and nail-biters. The defending champions Germany bowed out in the group stage carrying the jinx of reigning champions exiting early in the very next World Cup. The giant sides like France, Brazil and Spain raced to the round of 16 while black horses namely Denmark, Sweden and Russia caused a few upsets en route to the knockouts.

Focusing on the knockout games, the top quarter had France knocking out the Luis Suarez men while the South American giants were taken down comprehensively by Belgium. The bottom half of the draw saw Croatia scrape through in penalties against the hosts whereas England didn’t break any sweat against Sweden.

In the semis, an important brace in extra time by Mandzukic sent them to the finals while France overpowered Belgium in the battle of French fries. In the final, the French side was too strong for the Croatians as the young gun Kylian Mbappe sealed the deal by scoring the 4th goal for the side while Griezmann and Pogba were the other key contributors in the front line.
