2022 World Cup Group Stages Best Bets & Props: Tuesday, November 22
Are you psyched about the 2022 World Cup and endless soccer each day for the next few weeks? We certainly are. If you are planning on watching the games and keeping track of all the action in Qatar, here are some picks for the four group stage matches scheduled for tomorrow: Tuesday, November 22.
Note (from FanDuel Sportsbook): No team will be playing at home during the World Cup in Qatar. For betting purposes, FanDuel explains that: “Home Team refers to the team listed first, Away Team refers to the second team listed.”
Game: Saudi Arabia at Argentina, -650 (5:00am EST)
Without a question, this should be an easy win for Argentina. They are one of the favorites to win the 2022 World Cup as a result of their outstanding corps of forwards and midfielders. In contrast, Saudi Arabia likely has one of the weakest rosters in this year’s competition. For this reason, it could be interesting to look at some other props. For instance, you could consider taking Argentina to win and for a certain amount of goals to be scored in the game. Taking into consideration the mismatch and the potential for Saudi Arabia to score a consolation goal, you can roll the dice on Argentina to win and for five or more goals to be scored in the contest for +430.
Bet: Argentina to win, and 5 or more total goals in the match (+430)
Game: Tunisia at Denmark, -185 (8:00am EST)
Denmark is certainly the stronger team in this matchup. Tunisia isn’t a joke but ultimately, Denmark has elite players from around the world spread at different positions throughout their roster. Christian Eriksen is the feature player on Denmark's’ 2022 World Cup Squad. Tunisia has virtually no players competing at a tough international level. This should be an easy first win for Denmark’s national team, and a safe bet for you regardless of if you are an avid sports bettor or simply trying to keep along with tomorrow’s action.
The Pick: Denmark, -185
Game: Poland at Mexico, +155 (11:00am EST)
Though both teams have solid rosters, the edge goes to the Polish national team. At forward, they have one of the most prolific goal scorers in the World over the last near-decade in Robert Lewandowski (Barcelona). The rest of Poland’s roster is sprinkled with players competing in the top European divisions. Mexico’s brightest players will be veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa (Club America), Andres Guardado (Real Betis), Edson Alvarez (Ajax), and Hirving Lozano (Napoli). This season, Lozano has produced three goals and three assists in 14 games for Napoli. While Mexico’s roster shows promise, Poland’s roster has much more depth. Neither team is the heavy favorite, but I'd put my money on the team with players who have more experience at a European club and international level. This is where Poland’s roster shines over Mexico’s.
The Pick: Poland, +155
Game: Australia at France, -390 (2:00pm EST)
Heading into their first World Cup game, the French national team has lost some key players. Both Paul Pogba (Juventus) and N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) were ruled out of the tournament more than a month ago as a result of their respective injuries. It was reported earlier this week that 2022 Ballon D’Or winner Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) suffered a hamstring injury practicing in Qatar which will keep him sidelined for the tournament. Heading into their first match of the group stage of the competition, France is missing three of its best players. Fortunately, they still have one of the most talented and deep rosters despite losing these crucial veteran players. In contrast, Australia is one of the weakest teams at the World Cup. Regardless of the hits the French national team has taken to their roster, “Les Bleus” should comfortably win this game by two or more goals.
Bet: France to win and 3 or 4 goals in the match, +160
