What are Outright Odds?
Outright bets and odds are different from traditional wagers, where you are betting on a given match. When you place outright bets, you predict the winner of a tournament. For instance, if you are betting on the World Cup in Qatar, you can back either one of France, Brazil, or Spain to win the tournament in the outright winner market. As you can see, you are not betting on a particular game but on the winner of the entire tournament. If one of these teams gets to the World Cup final and wins the whole thing, you win too. Pretty cool, right?
However, to get that outright winning bet, you will have to wait longer. You will need to wait for the entire tournament to finish before finding out if you have a winning bet. That might seem like a drawback, but it's not. After all, you get to enjoy watching the entire tournament instead of just one match, and you do that with just one bet.
Also, if your team loses in one of the group games, you don't lose your wager. You can cheer for the outright winner you picked in the next match and hope your selected team goes all the way and wins the tournament.
Outright Betting in Football
Outright betting is available in most sports. However, if you want to experience outright betting in all its glory, bet on football. One of the great things about outright betting markets in football is the wide range of leagues, competitions, and tournaments available.
Another is the sheer number of outright betting markets on offer. Take the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, for instance. You can bet on the Top Scorer and Golden Ball outright markets. You can also place a wager on the team to win each group, the team that will finish bottom, bet on which teams will finish first and second in a group, and so on.
Another perk of betting on football outright markets is the enticing odds you get. This is particularly true when betting on football events such as the 2022 World Cup tournament. Because there are many candidates for the top spot, 32 in the case of the World Cup, you can get really good winner odds for your picks.
Lastly, outright markets are perfect if you have some free bets and bonus money in your account. You can use your free bet stakes to place some riskier bets and get excellent returns. For instance, if you back Costa Rica to finish in the Top 2 of Group E you might get long odds. In contrast, if you are a play-safe type of bettor, you can back Germany in the same market. Sure, you will get much lower World Cup odds, but you will benefit from a safer bet.

2022 World Cup Winner Odds
Betting on the 2022 World Cup outright winner market allows you to profit from some excellent odds while cheering on your favorite team. And it doesn't matter if your team is considered a front-runner or dark horse. They all come with odds we think are pretty good.
As our table below illustrates, even favorites like France, Argentina, Brazil, England, Germany, and Spain get decent odds of winning the World Cup, which are in the 5.00-11.00 range. World Cup history has shown that these are the countries that win the tournament the most often, so they are also your best option for your first bet in this market.
If you opt for some of the dark horses, on the other hand, the World Cup outright odds get even better. For instance, the Netherlands, Portugal, Denmark, Senegal, Switzerland, and the USA are all great examples of solid teams that could make a run at great odds.
If you go even lower down that table, the odds become super-enticing. Japan, South Korea, and Australia get massive odds you will never see when betting on regular markets.
