Teams in Group B - England Heavy Favourites, Wales and the USA to Fight It Out for Second
Group B features former world champions England, potential dark horses Wales, the always dangerous USA, and an unpredictable Iran side. So, which team will win Group B and which will qualify? Let's analyze the chances of each nation and see what you can expect from the group stage matches.
England - Captain Harry Kane to Lead the Three Lions to Glory
Looking at Group B odds, you see that World Cup bookmakers give this England squad the lowest winner odds. Moreover, when you look at other World Cup groups, such as Group D and Group G, where heavyweights France and Brazil play, you notice that England has the lowest World Cup group odds of all nations too; at least with many of the bookmakers. And it's easy to see why.
In captain Harry Kane, the Three Lions have a lethal striker and a favourite for the World Cup Top Scorer award. England also boasts a settled defensive line and a young midfield capable of beating anyone. They are the favourites for the top spot in Group B, and we can't see anyone usurping them.
Iran - Underdogs with a Potential to Surprise
I.R. Iran will make its sixth World Cup appearance in Qatar. However, don't expect any miracles from the Iranians, as they have only two wins in World Cup history. That doesn't mean they can't upset any of the other teams in Group B though.
Despite World Cup bookies tipping I.R. Iran for a fourth-place finish in Group B, players like Porto's Mehdi Taremi and Feyenoord's Alireza Jahanbakhsh can score against the best of teams. So, even though the Iranians will likely fail to reach the knockout stage, we think they will take some points that nations like the USA and Wales planned on.
USA - The Stars and Stripes Looking to Start Strong
Each US player will have to put in a shift in the first two games of the tournament if the US is to progress to the next stage. The first match of World Cup 2022 will be crucial for the Americans as they face Wales. The winner of that match will dramatically increase its chances of qualifying from Group B.
Another important fixture for the Stars and Stripes will be played at the Al Bayt stadium in Round 2, when the USA play against England - the bookies' favourites for the top spot in Group B. The Americans will look for inspiration in the 2010 World Cup when they were in the same group as England and drew 1-1. Christian Pulisic and Co will hope for a similar result.
Wales - World Cup 2022 Dark Horses
Gareth Bale will lead the Welsh in only their second World Cup appearance in history. The last World Cup Wales played in was back in 1958, so it is fair to say Wales fans have been waiting for quite some time to see their stars on the biggest stage in world football.
However, if Wales' matches in the World Cup qualifiers are anything to go by, the Welsh will be quite the force in this competition. They finished second in their group behind Belgium and beat two strong sides such as Austria and Ukraine in the playoffs. They come with good Group B odds and are an excellent value bet to qualify from this group.
WC Group B Winner Betting Odds
If you ask World Cup bookies, there's only one team to consider when it comes to winning Group B. That team is England. However, as you can see from our odds table, bookmakers don't write the USA and Wales completely off from fighting for the top spot.
