Most Popular Bet to Win World Cup at SI Sportsbook

*Odds accurate as of June 29, 2022*


France comes in looking to repeat as World Cup Champions for the first time since Brazil did it in 1958 and 1962. Only 2 teams have ever been able to repeat as champion, and aside from Brazil, Italy achieved a repeat in 1934 and 1938. France winning the World Cup in 2022 will not be easy, but they might have the most talented team in the field.

Mbappe is undeniably a top 5 player and will be the fastest player seen on the pitches in Qatar. They have one of the best mid fields as well with the Kante and Pavard. Deschamps has much of the same team that won in 2018, but since the World Cup win, France has greatly underachieved. They were beat by Switzerland at Euro 2020, which was held just last summer due to international pandemic.

One of the most notable absences is going to be 22 year old defender Ibrahima Konate. Konate plays at Liverpool which uses a four-man defense, and France boss Deschamps utilizes a 3-man defense. The defenders chosen for this World Cup all play in 3-man defenses. Even as the 2018 Champions, France comes in as the third lowest odd at +600 at SI Sportsbook. France at +600 is plenty valuable.


In 2018 they largely found success behind Luka Modric. Now at age 36 he will be making what is most likely his last World Cup appearance. Croatia heads into Qatar a part of Group F which includes Belgium, Canada and Morocco. With Belgium the likely favorites in the group, Croatia comes in at +275 to win.  Even without winning the group Croatia will have a strong chance to make it to the knockout round.

In order to advance, Croatia will need everything they can get from Modric who won 2018 World Cup Golden Ball. For Croatia to repeat the success found in 2018, they will need major contributions from Mateo Kovacic, Andrej Kramaric, and Marcelo Brozovic, but they come in as +5,000 to win it all. At that price they might just be worth a play over at SI Sportsbook.

United States

After missing the tournament in 2018, the United States found a way to qualify in 2022.  The United States are currently +10000 to win the tournament.  Their World Cup odds are justified due to the group they landed in.  Group B will feature England who was the Euro 2020 runner-up, along with Wales and Iran. All four teams are in the top 21 according to FIFA rankings.

The United States are in a very different state than it was in 2018.  Behind players like Pulisic, Weah, McKennie, Sargent, Reyna, and Steffen among others, the United States might have a chance to make noise.  The group favorite is obviously going to be England, but the United States have a good shot at getting through to the round of 16. One the elimination rounds arrive, a lot of different things can happen, but at +10000 its not half bad value.
