Betting on 2022 World Cup Group C
It will be a hot winter in Qatar, and teams like Argentina, Mexico, Poland, and Saudi Arabia will make it even hotter. The rivalries in Group C promise to be quite fierce, and the 2022 World Cup Group C betting odds reflect that. Read on to learn more about each team’s prospects and find the best World Cup bookies for your Group C bet.
Teams in Group C - Latin American Rivalry Poland Could Benefit From
Argentina is one of the favourites to win it all, for all World Cup bookmakers, and it will be a huge surprise if La Albiceleste doesn’t win Group C. However, the fight for that second place that guarantees qualification will be quite intense. Both Poland and Mexico will do everything they can to secure progress to the next round - but which nation will succeed? Let’s look at all teams in Group C and analyze their chances.
Argentina - Lionel Messi to Go Out with a Bang
Chances are that this will be Lionel Messi’s last World Cup. So, the football maestro will probably take his game to the next level to go out in style. He already took the Argentinians to a Copa America glory last year, and because the World Cup is the bigger tournament of the two, we expect even more from him in Qatar.
Bookmakers seem to be thinking along the same lines. Bookies make Argentina the favourite to win Group C and have the Argentinians as one of the sides with the best chance to win the World Cup trophy. Players like Angel Di Maria, Paulo Dybala, and Lautaro Martinez offer tons of options for Messi in attack, making La Albiceleste one of the best teams at the 2022 World Cup. You won't make a mistake if you back them.
Mexico - El Tri Usually Qualify for the Knockout Stages, Can They Do It Again?
This will be Mexico’s 16th World Cup appearance. An interesting stat about El Tri is that they have qualified for all of the last seven World Cups and reached the knockout stage in each. So, backing them to join the Argentinians in the Round of 16 sounds like a good bet and bookies give you pretty decent betting odds too.
Poland - Can Lewy Earn the Poles Qualification?
The first name on the Polish team sheet is Robert Lewandowski. In addition to being one of the favourites for the World Cup Golden Boot award, the talismanic striker is also Poland’s best hope of reaching the knockout stages. If the Barcelona star wears his scoring boots in Qatar, the Biało-czerwoni (The White and Red) will have a great chance of reaching the Round of 16.
Saudi Arabia - Will the Green Falcons Soar or Plummet?
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be the sixth World Cup appearance for the Green Falcons. The Saudis were the surprise package of the 1994 tournament in the USA when they progressed to the knockout stage in their first World Cup appearance. However, since then, they have only picked up one win and two draws in the last four tournaments.
One thing the Saudis have got going for them, though, is that the World Cup is played in a climate they are used to. Sure, stadiums will be air-conditioned, and the World Cup is being played in winter. However, the advantage of being acclimated to Qatar’s extreme heat will serve the Saudis well. Will that be enough for them to qualify, though? We don’t think so.
WC Group C Winner Betting Odds
Bookies say that the safest Group C winner bet is Argentina. The Argentinians get the lowest betting odds to take the top spot. However, we advise caution when picking Group C’s winner, as both Poland and Mexico can mount a challenge. They get much higher odds than the Argentinians too.
