2022 FIFA World Cup futures picks, groups, odds: Soccer expert reveals best bets, USMNT predictions for Qatar
The FIFA World Cup 2022 is just days away and the world’s top players have descended upon host country Qatar. But many of the all-time greats are likely making their last World Cup appearances including Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar. Ronaldo and Messi will be 41 and 39, respectively, by the time the 2026 World Cup rolls around, making it unlikely they’ll suit up. Meanwhile, Neymar is just 30 but has already said he doesn’t know if he’ll play in another World Cup after Qatar 2022. Others like Luka Modric, Luis Suarez and Robert Lewandowski are also on the back-ends of their careers, likely making the 2022 World Cup their swan songs.
Neymar’s Brazilian side is the +400 favorite, with Messi’s Argentina is the +550 second-favorite per Caesars Sportsbook. Other notables in the 2022 World Cup odds include France (+650), England (+750), USA (+10000) and Mexico (+10000).

Top 2022 FIFA World Cup predictions
Green is backing the USMNT to qualify from Group B at +100 odds at Caesars. In the same group with England, Wales and Iran, the U.S. roster stacks up nicely with the others in regards to the level of competition the players have faced. Thirteen members of the USMNT currently play club ball in one of the Big 5 European leagues which is as many as Wales and Iran have combined.
The strength of the U.S. team may be up front where it has a star in Christian Pulisic and quality depth both beside and behind him. 22-year-old Josh Sargent leads the EFL Championship with nine goals, while Haji Wright ranks second in the Turkish Super Lig in scoring. The top American scorer in MLS, Jesus Ferreira, should operate as a super sub and has tallied five international goals already in 2022.
While the USMNT missed out on the 2018 World Cup, they did make back-to-back Round of 16 appearances in the two previous tournaments. Meanwhile, Wales is making their first World Cup appearance in 64 years and Iran has never advanced to the knockout stage. The U.S. just needs to finish in the top two of the group to advance, and they have all the pieces in place to do so. See Green’s other 2022 World Cup picks at SportsLine.
