France 2022 World Cup BettingPosted on: October 16, 2022
France arrive in Qatar as the defending champions, having won the 2018 World Cup. Didier Deschamps side cruised through qualifying, topping their group with five wins and three draws from eight matches. The French now hope to become the first nation since Brazil in 1962 to defend their world title. Bet on France at the 2022 World Cup with BetVictor.
France World Cup Group D Odds
According to the World Cup Group D Odds, France are clear favourites to progress to the next round. Les Bleus are 1/12 to secure a top-two finish in a group which includes Denmark, Australia and Tunisia. They are also odds-on to win the group, with BetVictor offering a price of 2/5.
However, despite those odds, finishing top of this group may not be as easy as it looks. The Danes in particular pose a significant threat to France – they held them to a 0-0 draw at the 2018 World Cup and beat them 2-1 in the Nations League earlier in 2022.
France World Cup Winner Odds
Alongside England, France are 6/1 joint second favourites in the World Cup Outright Winner Betting. They have enjoyed lots of success recently, winning the 2018 World Cup and the 2020 Nations League. Les Bleus have a taste for silverware, and the odds suggest they could make it three trophies in four years.
A major reason for that price is the sheer number of quality players that Deschamps has at his disposal. Antoine Griezmann is one of those. The Atletico Madrid man was vital in qualifying, netting six goals and providing two assists in eight appearances. He also has plenty of World Cup pedigree, finishing second in the Golden Boot race in 2018. If he can perform well again, France have a chance of winning the World Cup again.
Kylian Mbappe World Cup Top Scorer Odds
Kylian Mbappe is among the most exciting footballers on the planet right now. So, it is no surprise to see the Paris Saint Germain star at the head of the World Cup Top Goal Scorer Betting market. Mbappe is an 8/1 joint-favourite to win the Golden Boot, and a look at his recent stats makes it easy to see why.
The 23-year-old has already scored over 25 goals for his country, including five during qualifying. Mbappe rose to the occasion at the 2018 World Cup with four strikes, including one in the final. Can he do it again?
Fellow Frenchman Karim Benzema is also one of the World Cup Top Scorer favourites with odds of 10/1.
