Who are the favourites to win the World Cup 2022?
Brazil head Paddy Power’s World Cup 2022 Winner betting market but the Selecao have not won the tournament since 2002 when the likes of Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Cafu were strutting their stuff.
The World Cup has not been successfully defended since 1962 so France will have to defy recent history if they are to retain the trophy but they are second in our early betting.
England reached the World Cup semi-finals in 2018 and were runners-up at Euro 2020 so the Three Lions are fancied to be in the mix to go one better, according to our odds. A disastrous set of Nations League results in June including that 4-0 defeat to Hungary has seen their price drift, however.
