Who will Win the World Cup? [Predictions and Odds]


The world cup is just around the corner, and everyone is wondering who will win the World Cup?

Before making our World Cup predictions, we looked at a number of factors, including team chemistry, player form, and recent performances.

So please read on to find out who we think will win the World cup.

Who are the Favourites to Win the World Cup?

6. England

England’s odds to win the World Cup: 8/1 (9.0)

England Group:

Is it coming home this time? 

Unfortunately, No. 

Since the EURO final, the Three Lions have been on a different level than they were during that tournament. 

The fact that they were relegated from the Nations League and a side such as Hungary was able to beat them at home 0-4 shows that Southgate will have a lot to improve if they want to be title contenders.

I expect England to have no trouble getting to the next stage, as they are in a pretty “easy” group. They start with Iran, then the USA and they close the group stage with Wales.

However, England does have the quality to go all the way, but the fact that Southgate called up some players that don’t get enough game time at their clubs will ultimately cost England.

Harry Kane is the best striker in the UK, and it is no surprise that he is the favourite to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup.

5. Spain

Spain’s odds to win the World Cup: 8/1 (9.0)

Spain’s group:

My fifth favourite to win the World Cup is Spain. Luis Enrique has called up some young players for Qatar, but the fact that for many players, this will be their first World Cup can backfire easily.

However, they do have an excellent squad, including some of the best young players in the world, such as Pedri, Gavi, Danny Olmo and Neco Williams.

They find themselves in a tough group and must be at a top level to top the group ahead of Germany.

Their first game is against Costa Rica, then against Germany, and they finish the group stage against Japan.

4. France

France’s odds to win the World Cup: 7/1 (8.0)

France’s group:

The current World Cup champions are consistently among the favourites, as they have one of the best squads in this tournament.

I’ve put France in fourth place because of the recent injuries and the fact that they will have a completely new midfield compared to the last World Cup.

I think that the injuries of Kante and Pogba will reflect on Deschamps’s side, as the likes of Camavinga, Tchouaméni and Guendouzi still can’t fill the shoes of these superstars in midfield.

Mbappe will be looking to continue his fine form in his second World Cup. In his World Cup debut, he scored a goal and was the youngest World Cup goalscorer in that tournament.

3. Portugal

Portugal’s odds to win the World Cup: 14/11 (15.0)

Portugal’s group:

The former EURO champions have one of the best teams at the tournament this year. From quality centrebacks to having one of the fiercest attacks with Ronaldo, Rafael Leao and Joao Felix. 

Finally, once you add midfielders such as Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva, you’ve got a side that can go all the way.

I fully expect Portugal to completely control their group, as teams such as Ghana, South Korea, and Uruguay should not be a problem.

This will be Cristiano’s fifth and final World Cup, meaning that if he scores, he will be the first player in history to score in five different World Cups.

It just goes to show that Ronaldo and records go hand in hand.

2. Argentina

Argentina’s odds to win the World Cup: 11/2 (6.50)

Argentina’s group:

Is this the “Last Dance” for Lionel Messi?

Well, I think it is, and some of the best bookies in the UK also feel the same.

Like Ronaldo, this will also be the last World Cup for the other player not from this planet, Lionel Messi.

The fact that Argentina is unbeaten in 36 games shows you what kind of form the Albicelestes have been in the last 2-3 years.

Messi won his first international trophy last year when Argentina was the best team at the Copa America.

In the last World Cup, Argentina was one of the biggest upsets at the tournament, but this year they have a big chance of lifting the most expensive trophy in the world.

1. Brazil

Brazil’s odds to win the World Cup: 7/2 (4.50)

Brazil’s group:

My favourites for this year’s World Cup are definitely The Seleção or Brazil.

They have so much quality in every line, from goalkeepers to defenders to forwards.

They have the best goalkeepers at the WC, Ederson and Alisson between the sticks, Millitao in defence, and the best forwards at the World Cup in Vini Jr. and Neymar Jr.

They should have no problem topping their group, and they will be a team everyone wants to avoid.

Who are the Dark Horses at the World Cup?

Denmark’s odds to win the World Cup: 28/1 (29.0)

I think that Denmark can go pretty far in this tournament. They do have individual qualities in players like Eriksen and Kjaer, but their strongest side is their team chemistry.

In the last EURO, they showed that they are a side that can go against anyone, as they were knocked out by England in the semi-finals with a diving penalty by Sterling.

Serbia’s odds to win the World Cup: 80/1 (81.0)

I know that many people don’t see Serbia as an actual threat in this World Cup, but in my opinion, they can cause some trouble.

The way they qualified for this World Cup shows you the quality of this team, as they needed a win against Portugal away to top their group, and they did it by scoring an injury-time winner.

Serbia has some of the biggest ballers in the world right now in Tadic and Milinkovic-Savic, and add Mitrovic and Vlahovic upfront; you know that opposition defenders will be scared.

Conclusion: Who Will Win the World Cup?

Brazil and Argentina are my favourites for this tournament, and I think that the World Cup trophy will finally return to South America.

However, I love a story where the underdogs go all the way, so I will support Denmark and Serbia in this World Cup.
