World Cup Betting Bet Types

Betting on the World Cup is as simple as NFL betting or NBA betting. If you’re new to sports betting odds, the main focus here are moneyline wagers, but you will also be able to try out other bet types when wagering on the latest World Cup odds. Here are the main bet types you’ll find at the best desktop and mobile sports betting sites:

  • Moneyline Bets โ€“ You bet on the outcome of a match. For soccer there are three options, either one team will win or there will be a tie after regulation time. Generally, the result after the regulation 90 minutes will determine the outcome of your bet, extra time does not normally count.
  • Spread Betting โ€“ Although normally more used in the NFL, you can find spread World Cup odds. You wager on the number of goals a team scores with a handicap, known as the ‘spread’.
  • Over/Under Betting โ€“ In this bet type, you wager on the total number of goals scored and whether that total is over or under a certain number.
  • Live Betting โ€“ Many sites will allow you to wager on World Cup odds while the game is in play. This allows you to bet on the go while following the action live!

US Road to the World Cup Final

US World Cup betting fans are excitedly following their team into the knockout stages after escaping from the so-called “Group of Death“.

Here are the latest odds, courtesy of BetOnline, and predictions for the USMNT at the World Cup 2022:

USA v Wales

November 21 @ 2pm EST

The US take on Gareth Bale’s Wales in the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan. The two sides last met in 2020 in a scoreless draw.

Although the bookies had backed the US to pick up the win, the final score was a 1-1 draw after a Gareth Bale penalty canceled out Timothy Weah’s opener.

USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Draw Wales ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ
+155 +210 +213

USA v England

November 25 @ 2pm EST

The USMNT’s biggest challenge will be former champions and the runners up of Euro 2020, England. Gareth Southgate’s England are +800 to win the whole tournament, so it’s little surprise that the bookies have the Three Lions as favorites to win in Al Khor.

While England was the favorite to win, the game ended in a scoreless draw.

USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Draw England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ
+475 +295 -155

USA v Iran

November 29 @ 2pm EST

Possibly the most controversial team in the tournament due to their domestic political situation, Iran recorded a surprise victory over the US at the 1998 World Cup. This is the final group game for the US and it is a must win. Anything less than a win will see Iran qualify while the United States will leave Qatar at the first hurdle.

The bookies had the US as favorites and the USMNT overcame Iran via a Christian Pulisic goal to advance to the round of 16.

USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Draw Iran ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท
-107 +257 +327

USA vs The Netherlands

December 3 @ 10am EST

The USA will meet the Netherlands in the first round of the knockout stages. The Dutch are probably the best team to never have won the World Cup, but this side is not nearly as strong as the Cruijff era of total football.

The bookies had the Dutch as favorites and, in truth, they showed their attacking prowess against the USMNT. The Netherlands knocked out the US after a 3-1 victory which set up a showdown of the Dutch against Lionel Messi and Argentina.

USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Draw Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ
+360 +240 -108

The United States at the FIFA World Cup

The United States has played at nine World Cups since the inaugural World Cup in 1930. In fact, the USMNT’s best performance ever was at the 1930 World Cup in Uruguay where they lost in the semi finals to Argentina.

Since 1930, the USMNT’s best performance was at the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. The US was knocked out in the quarter finals to eventual runners-up, Germany.

The US Women’s National Team has faired much better as they have won four World Cups โ€“ as many as every other nation combined!

FIFA World Cup History

Although FIFA organized the soccer competitions at several Olympics, the first World Cup was held in Uruguay in 1930. The hosts won the first FIFA World Cup and the event would go on to become one of the most watched sporting events in the world. World Cup betting fans would do well to pay attention to the history of the competition, as the most successful teams in history are predicted to do very well in Qatar.
