World Cup 2022 preview and free bets: Brazil backed for victory, Kane favored for Golden Boot


There are now less than two weeks until the start of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, four and a half years after the last World Cup closed in Russia in 2018.

Gareth Southgate’s England side will face Iran in the second match of the tournament, which kicks off on November 20 with hosts Qatar taking on Ecuador in the tournament opener.

Qatar is hosting the first FIFA Winter World Cup in just under a month.
GETTY

France enter this winter’s competition as defending champions after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final in Russia in 2018.

England’s Southgate side that year sparked the nation’s dreams again, as the Three Lions reached their first World Cup semi-final since 1990, only to be beaten in extra time by the losing runners-up.

England captain Harry Kane won the Golden Boot in Russia, scoring six goals en route to a fourth-place finish, more than anyone else in the tournament.

Brazil have won the World Cup the most times, with their last victory in 2002 being the fifth time to claim the trophy, and bookies are backing them to make it six this year.

Betway have the South American nation best-priced at 9/2 to win their first World Cup in 20 years, with defending champions France seen as the next best cry, with BetVictor offering 13/2 for them to become merely the third nation to win back-to-back titles.

Argentina, England and Spain are then the next three in the chasing pack, with most bookmakers offering around 7/1 or 8/1 out of the three.

England will win the World Cup

10Bet is offering an exceptional 10/1 prize on England to win the tournament which you can claim here.

In slightly better news for England fans, Harry Kane is widely backed to finish the tournament as the top scorer and, in doing so, become the first person in history to win two World Cup Golden Boots.

BetVictor have the best odds of 8/1 for the England captain to qualify for the Golden Boots.

French attacking duo Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema are seen as Kane’s most likely competitors, the former 10/1 with Betway and the latter up to 14/1 with Sky Bet.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are likely to play in their final World Cups, and are rated 14/1 and 16/1 respectively to win the Golden Boot with Betway in their final World Cup.

All information correct at time of writing.
