How to Choose the Best Betting Sites for The World Cup

The highly anticipated 2022 FIFA World Cup is just around the corner and the excitement is slowly building up.

We have an unusual World Cup in 2022, with that winter slot in the calendar meaning the top domestic leagues around the world must take a break. It all kicks off on the 20th of November 2022, with the World Cup Final taking place at the Lusail Stadium on Sunday 18th of November 2022.

We have an unusual World Cup in 2022, with that winter slot in the calendar meaning the top domestic leagues around the world must take a break. It all kicks off on the 20th of November 2022, with the World Cup Final taking place at the Lusail Stadium on Sunday 18th of November 2022.

Needless to say, with the event so firmly on the horizon, the excitement is now beginning to reach a fever pitch.

For fans and punters all around the world, there is simply nothing to match a whole month of intense football action, fiercely contested matches, the greatest players on the planet, and hopefully a whole load of goals.

Just about the only thing that can make the 2022 FIFA World Cup more exciting, is a bet or two on the unfolding action. With so much interest from the punting public, betting operators of all sizes will be pulling out all the stops to ensure they stand out from the crowd. But how to choose between them?

When selecting a betting operator, there are several key features to look for. Amongst the most important in our opinion are:

  • Excellent Promotions and Offers - Look out for those bookmakers who provide a great value new customer offer, in addition to exiting on-going promotions.
  • Good Banking Options - Most operators will offer debit card and PayPal options as a minimum, but always ensure a bookmaker supports your banking method of choice before signing up.
  • Customer Support - You are unlikely to run into any problems with a respected bookmaker, but it is still handy to know that a telephone, email, or live chat facility is available should you have any queries.
  • Solid App - Not an absolute must, as many sites do function well in a mobile browser. Nevertheless, a slick app, granting the ability to bet on the go with ease, always counts as a big plus in our book.
  • Reputation and Stature - The first thing we need to understand is that World Cup is a huge opportunity for bookmakers – both for the big ones and small ones. Both for good ones and bad ones as well. That’s why we’re here – to help you identify a betting site you can trust your hard-earned money with and never worry about getting scammed.
  • Range of Betting Options -The online betting universe is constantly expanded and new players are being continuously added to the overall offering. They are not necessarily bad but our warm advice is to go with operators which boast a well-established reputation in the industry.
    The best way to check a betting site is to ask your friends about it as their recommendation and reference could prove to be a key in your decision making. A site everyone’s talking about in the most positive light is sure to be a good option to go by, so keep your eyes (and ears) open.
  • High-Value Odds - Even if range of betting markets will offer an inconclusive decision simply because you cannot decide between the variety of options before you, a good way to definitely make the cut is to compare odds.
    Have a look around, explore. Don’t be shy.
    Do some window-shopping, betting sites love it and will encourage you to do it by leaving their complete offering – markets and odds – open for public and available without having to log in to your account.
  • Bonuses and Promotions - As soon as the World Cup groups have been determined, a good number of betting operators has already compiled a list of different bonuses, promotions and competitions related to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
    A good number of bookmakers have put a special focus on attracting new customers exactly during this exciting period before – and subsequently during – the tournament itself and you would be surprised by the sheer volume of promotions available to you.
    It is, of course, important to do some shopping around and determine – all in accordance to a site’s overall reputation and trustworthiness – whether promotions and bonuses on offer will add desired value to your World Cup betting.

In addition to the above features, it is of course also important that an online bookmaker provides a wide range of betting opportunities. Next, we take a look at the types of markets you should expect to find for the world’s biggest football tournament - from the traditional betting options to those wagers which fall into the special bets category.

    World Cup Betting Markets

    As such a huge event with unparalleled levels of interest, bookmakers will endeavour to provide as many different betting markets as possible in order to capture the imagination of the betting public. Despite an increasingly extensive list of innovative betting options, it still tends to be the traditional markets which attract the most business – markets which have been with us for decades now but have lost none of their lustre with the modern sports betting fan. When selecting a World Cup Bookmaker, your choice should, at the very least, offer odds on all of the following.

    • Outright Winner - Plain and simple – a bet on who will win the tournament. Will it be the tournament’s most successful side Brazil? A European giant such as France or Germany? Or will you let the heart rule the head and side with the Three Lions?
    • Top Goalscorer - Another staple of football betting in all types of competition, this is a bet on who will score the most goals in the tournament. Will it be a striker from one of the sides fancied to lift the trophy? Or perhaps an outsider will go goal crazy in the group stages and prove tough to catch.
    • To Reach the Final - Not sure a team will win the tournament, but feel confident that they will win their half of the draw. Why not place a bet on the nation to make the final? The odds will be shorter, but this bet does remove the need to overcome the most difficult hurdle of all i.e. the World Cup Final itself. Related markets include a bet on a particular side to make it as far as the Quarter Final, or Semi Final Stage of the competition.
    • Group Winners - The tournament begins with the sides being divided into eight group stages, with all groups featuring a mixture of strongly fancied nations and relative outsiders. Many punters like to place accumulators on nations to win various groups, or perhaps side with a less heralded country to cause a shock at rewarding odds. In addition to the Group Winner market, bettors are also able to wager on a side to qualify from the section, with that bet paying out whether the nation finishes first or second in the group. Or perhaps you are confident about which two sides will qualify from a particular group – in which case a Group Straight Forecast bet may be the way to go.
    • Match Odds - Then of course we have the matches themselves, of which there are a whopping 64 spread over the 28 days. Expect all of the usual match betting odds markets to be available, including to win the game, first/last/anytime scorer, correct score, both teams to score and plenty more besides. At many betting sites the list of available markets runs into the 100s!

    In addition to the Winner market which stands as the most popular betting option for the forthcoming World Cup, punters are able to select from a multitude of long-term betting options for the FIFA World Cup 2022.

    • Group Winners
    • Top Goalscorer
    • Winner/Top Goalscorer Double
    • Name the Finalist
    • To Reach Final
    • To Reach Quarterfinal
    • Top Team Across Regions

    World Cup Specials

    Whilst the traditional betting options continue to be the most popular types of bets at the FIFA World Cup, they are far from being the only markets on offer. Look a little deeper, and you will find a wide range of odds available on all manner of eventualities, both for the individual games, and the tournament as a whole.

    In the modern football betting world, if it is possible for an event to happen during a match, you will most likely be able to place a bet on it - from the number of throw-ins, total corners, players to be booked, and plenty more besides. When weighing up your World Cup betting options, we recommend examining the range of special bets on offer, including the following:

    • Tournament Winner/Top Scorer Double - Due to the related contingency betting rule, it is not possible to place a normal double on the tournament winner and top goal scorer. However, many betting operators will provide a list of special prices on almost all combinations of teams and players. Fancy England to lift the trophy and Harry Kane to finish as the tournament’s top scorer? This could be the market for you.
    • Scorecast - Possibly the most popular type of special bet in the football betting world. A Scorecast requires you to predict both the first goal scorer in the game and the correct score at full-time. Far from a straightforward task but, call it correctly, and you will likely be celebrating a winner at very rewarding odds.
    • Match Stats Specials - Rather than betting on a particular match outcome, you may wish to consider the selection of match stats markets. From total numbers of goals, corners, throw-ins, bookings, shots on target, tackles and more, the list goes on and on.
    • Bet Builder - One of the most recent additions to the list of options available to the modern punter, is that of the bet builder. Also known as build-a-bet, these wagers are just about the most versatile bets on the market. Simply select the events that you predict will happen during the game from the list of possible options, and the build a bet feature will provide the odds.
