2022 World Cup Best Bets To Back Today
Argentina to beat France
After a shocking start to the World Cup, where they lost 2-1 to Saudi Arabia, Argentina have really kicked it into gear. Their path to the final has been much easier, on paper, than their opponents, but with Lionel Messi at the helm, it looks like he and his fans will get the fairytale ending to his World Cup career they so badly want.
Argentina vs France Over 2.5 Goals
These have been two of the most impressive attacking teams in the 2022 World Cup, scoring 13 goals each in six games. With so many creative players on display - like Messi, Alvarez Mbappe, Giroud, Griezmann to name just a few - over 2.5 goals looks like the way to play the final.
Croatia to tie Morocoo
The game nobody wants to play in - a World Cup third place playoff. Croatia come into this game having drawn four of their six games at this World Cup. When these two teams met in the group stage, they played out a fairly tame 0-0 draw. With such a low intensity game in store, this looks like it could be another.
Croatia vs Morocco Under 2.5 Goals
Morocco making it this far in a World Cup really is one of the stories of the tournament. A huge reason for their progress has been their defense. They made it through the group stage, last-16 and quarter final, conceding just one goal along the way. All but one of their games in the tournament had two or less goals, and this looks primed to be another.
2022 World Cup Prediction For Golden Boot
Harry Kane scored six at the previous World Cup as England reached the semifinals, and usually the top scorer comes from a national team that goes deep into the tournament. Therefore, Spain’s Ferran Torres is a great price at +5000 to win the Golden Boot in 2022.
Torres has been scoring for fun with Spain and Barcelona recently and is crucial to Luis Enrique’s offensive tactics. Kane at +700 is perhaps the more natural goalscorer but will England go as deep as Spain? There is also a credible justification for backing Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku (+2200) when making your World Cup predictions. The striker can run hot and cold, and Belgium’s Golden Generation might struggle to better its third-place finish from 2018. Lukaku has only made five club appearances for Inter Milan (on loan from Chelsea) due to a hamstring injury, but he's in Belgium's squad and is a proven goalscorer.

New World Cup Schedule For Qatar 2022
The World Cup typically takes place in June and July, when most major leagues are in their offseasons. But this year’s World Cup has been pushed to November/December due to concerns over high temperatures in the Qatari summer.
That decision meant many top leagues were forced to move fixtures to accommodate a mid-season break, and it remains to be seen how that will impact performance on the biggest stage.
The 2022 World Cup begins on Nov. 20 and concludes with the final in Lusail, Qatar, on Dec. 18. The tournament features 32 teams in eight groups of four.
