This guide covers the most popular soccer world cup betting markets in anticipation for the Qatar 2022 edition. With 64 matches to bet on now is the perfect time to get acquainted with these bet types.

1×2 bet

This type of bet is also referred to as a three-way line and a match bet. This is the most straightforward bet available in which you pick the result of a match.

Bettors only familiar with American sports such as NFL, NBA, and MLB will be used to 2 options on the moneyline. However, soccer includes the third option of a draw.

The 1×2 bet refers to the home team (team 1), a draw represented by the “x”, and the away team (team 2). These bets are settled after full time, meaning at the conclusion of 90 minutes of play plus any added injury time or stoppage time. That’s all there is in the group stage but be careful in the knockout rounds; this market does not include extra time and penalty shootouts which often occur after the group stage.

Draw-no-bet

Draw-no-bet is effectively a 2-way moneyline that excludes the option to bet on a draw which means you have to pick one of the teams to win the match. If you place a draw no-bet wager and the score ends in a draw, the wager is pushed (refunded) and the original stake is returned. The wager is essentially canceled if there’s a draw, which explains the name “draw-no-bet.”

As there are only 2 outcomes for his type of wager, both the favorite and the underdog’s prices will be shorter than the 1×2 market as insurance is built into the wager. However, the draw-no-bet odds will be better than the double chance market.  

Double chance

A double chance bet allows you to place a bet on 2 of the 3 possible outcomes from a 1×2 bet. A bettor would typically bet on one of these combinations:

  • Home team (team 1) or draw.
  • Away team (team 2) or draw.
  • Home team (team 1) or away team (team 2).

If either of your selections win you will be paid out. This bet stacks the probability in your favor and the odds are significantly lower than the 1×2 or draw-no-bet wagers. This market is ideal for bettors who want to reduce risk while still turning a profit, albeit a small one. This is a particularly popular bet during the World Cup as many of the top pot teams are quite evenly matched.

Asian handicap

This type of bet is also referred to as a spread bet. Asian handicaps remove the possibility of a draw and only offer 2 betting options: home or away. But each team features a weighted “handicap” that gives the favorite a handicap and the underdog an advantage. This is an ideal bet for lower pot teams facing pot 1 or 2 teams that have a perceived advantage due to their rankings.

Asian handicaps can include whole numbers, halves, or quarters with the sportsbook giving each team a plus + (underdog) or minus – (favorite) figure to denote their handicap.

Whole number handicaps

Example:
Favorite – 2
Underdog + 2

If you bet on the favorite they need to win by more than their handicap for your bet to be a winner. Their handicap is 2 goals so if they win by 1 goal then your bet loses, if they win by 2 goals your bet is a push and if they win by 3 goals or more your bet is a winner.

Half number handicaps

Example:
Favorite – 0.5
Underdog + 0.5

If you bet on the favorite they will need to win to overcome the handicap. If the game is a draw or the underdog wins then your bet loses.

Half numbers are the most popular handicaps because they remove the possibility of a draw.

Quarter and three-quarter handicaps

Example:
Favorite – 0.25
Underdog + 0.25

The above example can also be written as

Favorite 0.0/-0.5
Underdog 0.0/+0.5

In a quarter handicap bet half of your stake is places on the nearest whole number and half your bet is placed on the nearest half number. So if you bet the favorite in the example above you actually have 2 bets on:

Favorite – 0
Favorite – 0.5

Each bet is resulted separately which means you can win or lose with half you stake and have the other half returned in a push.

It’s important to note that it’s different than the whole and half number handicaps – there is a possibility of having a part of your stake refunded.

Total goals

This betting market is also referred to as Asian totals. Sportsbooks set a projected total number of goals that need to be scored by both teams in a match and you’ll then be able to predict whether the total goals at full time are Over or Under that total.

Once again it’s important to note that sportsbooks markets are considered for full time only unless otherwise stated. The results from extra time or penalty shootouts are not used to calculate a winning or losing bet. Historically World Cup matches have ended with low scores with the majority of matches not exceeding 3 total goals.

Bet builder

Bet builders allow you to build a customized same game multiplier. These bets are effectively an accumulator of outcomes from a single match rather than several matches. These accumulators offer long odds as the chances of correctly predicting each individual market are difficult. However, a knowledgeable bettor wanting to turn a large profit from a relatively small stake has the opportunity to test their betting prowess. The accumulator can include several markets that include the likes of the number of yellow cards, the number of corners, goal scorers, player props, and more.

You can find the bet builder feature at Sportsbet (review, Dutch, Netherlandic bettors are geo-blocked).

Outright

An outright bet is a wager on the overall winner of a tournament in this case the 2022 World Cup. Outright bets are fun to place before the tournament has beggan and then flow that team through out. Although you get better value and more control by simply betting on that team to win individual matches.

The current favorite in the outright market is Brazil (6.6) followed by France (6.9) and England (8.0).

Group-stage winners and to qualify from group

These bets allow you to predict the winner of each group, or to bet on a team to advance to the knockout stages by finishing in the top 2 of their group.

There are 8 groups of 4 teams with all teams playing each other once, resulting in 6 matches per group. Wins count for 3 points, draws count for 1 point and if two teams finish with the same amount of points then the team that scored more goals is ranked higher.

A bit like outrights these bets can be fun but generally you will get better value and more control by betting on individual matches that will determine the group winners and qualifiers.

Golden Boot

Golden boot betting lets you predict the top scoring player of the tournament. There are 2 things to consider here: How many goals per game will the best strikers score and how many games will they get to play, which is determined by how far their nation advances.

For example if Ronaldo scores 1 goal per game and Portugal make it to the quarter finals then he will score 5 goals.

If Neymar only scores 0.85 goals per game but Brazil make it to the final then he will score 6 goals and beat Ronaldo for the golden boot!

Note that the pointless and annoying 3rd place playoff game does count for all tournament total bets.
