France, Brazil and France are the favourites to win the 2022 World Cup Qatar. This is despite the fact that Brazil was eliminated at Euro 2020. France’s national team was expected to continue its 2018 World Cup victory with continental success, but it was eliminated by Switzerland on penalties at the 16th stage.
DraftKings sportsbook says that Italy and Argentina, which won Copa America, and Euro 2020, respectively, are not among the top six favorite countries for World Cup glory next season.
Brazil, which has been defeated by Copa America finalists, joins France at +550 with DraftKings in order to win the 2022 World Cup. Spain and Germany are the next contenders with both countries available at +800 on the same site.
England (+850) was defeated by Italy in the Euro 2020 final on penalties. Belgium (+1000), Italy +1000 and Lionel Messi’s Argentina (++1100) are next.
France beat Croatia 4-2 in 2018 World Cup final. If they qualify Didier Deschamps’ side will attempt to be the first nation since 1962, Brazil, to defend their title. While Brazil lost 1-0 to Argentina in the Copa America final, most top sportsbooks believe Brazil has a great chance of winning next year. The Selecao, led by Neymar, is looking for a first World Cup final since 2002.
Spain, World Cup champions in 2010, reached the semifinals of Euro 2020 before being eliminated by eventual winners Italy via penalties. It has a young, talented midfielder in Pedri (18 years old), but there are still questions about its poor attack.
According to sports betting sites, Germany has the potential to rebound from its Euro 2020 loss to England in the last 16 matches. Germans are known for their success at major tournaments, but they have failed in the last two. They will be replacing Joachim Low, 2014 World Cup winner, with a new manager.
Roberto Mancini’s Italy has a remarkable 34-match unbeaten streak, just one shy of Spain and Brazil’s all-time record. Mancini has done an amazing job in turning around a team that did not even qualify for 2018 World Cup. The Italians will be motivated by their Euro 2020 win to continue to achieve success on the international stage.
