Watch The World Cup Live & Bet Online

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is fast approaching and we’re here to discuss all things betting for the event. Live betting sites already have odds available for every World Cup group game as well as futures, such as World Cup outright winner. Qatar will host the 2022 edition of the World Cup and it’s going to be a special occasion for a number of reasons.

Firstly, this is the first time that an Arab country will host the tournament and this should open up opportunities for other countries in the region for future Cups. It’s also going to be played in the months of November and December. Usually, the World Cup has taken place in the middle of the year. But mainly due to extremely hot & humid weather conditions in Qatar, playing the tournament at the end of the year was the best option.

The tournament and group stages begin on the 21st of November, 2022. The group stages will conclude on the 2nd of December and on the following day, the Round of 16 will start. On the 9th and 10th of December, the quarter-finals will be played between the last 8 countries. Then, the semi-finals will feature the top 4 nations on the 13th and 14th of December. The all-important final will be played on the 18th of December at Lusail Iconic Stadium. In Qatar, there will be a total of 8 stadiums; Lusail Iconic Stadium, Al Bayt Stadium, Stadium 974, Al Thumama Stadium, Khalifa International Stadium, Education City Stadium, Ahmad bin Ali Stadium and Al Janoub Stadium.

The 2022 World Cup will be the last tournament to feature 32 countries as this will be expanded to 48 teams in 2026. The expansion of the Cup will give opportunities to smaller nations to feature on the world stage and this can only benefit the game around the globe. With 16 extra nations coming into the Cup, the 32 countries playing in 2022 will know this is likely their best opportunity to make the final with a lot less competition.

At this stage, Brazil and France are the top favourites to claim World Cup glory in 2022. The Brazilians will be seeking to end their 20-year drought at the World Cup since they haven’t lifted the trophy since 2002. Meanwhile, France is the defending champion after defeating Croatia 4-2 in the 2018 World Cup. Winning back-to-back World Cups is fairly rare and as such, France will be the side every country wants to beat in 2022

The other top contenders include Argentina, England and Spain. The Argentinians will be looking to bounce back from 2018 after they were knocked out by France at the start of the Round of 16. It could also be Lionel Messi’s last Cup and they’ll want to send him off a winner. England was one of the more surprising teams in 2018 as they reached the semi-finals before losing in extra time against Croatia.

England doesn’t have a great record at the Cup as they haven’t won the tournament since 1966. But they should be very confident of ending the streak after a good performance in 2018. Meanwhile, Spain had a tough time in the 2018 Cup as they faced Russia in the Round of 16 and went down in a penalty shootout. So there’s going to be a lot of motivation for the Spaniards to bounce back in 2022.

With 32 countries battling for World Cup glory, there’s a massive amount of matches to watch live during the tournament. On any given day in the group stages, there can be up to four head-to-head matches. So there are plenty of opportunities for live betting and watching one of the best tournaments in sports.

In terms of how live betting works, betting odds are calculated on a real-time basis from advanced technology. While a match is unfolding, the odds will rapidly change based on what’s happening in the game. There are going to be updated odds for various different bet types such as totals, spread/handicap and head-to-head.

What is the benefit of live betting? Basically, the main benefit is that you’ll be getting fluctuating odds as the action unfolds. As a result, the odds are going to be a lot different compared to what was available pre-game and this is where punters can take advantage. Say for example, a team is down a few goals at half-time and you think they can mount a comeback, betting live will provide excellent odds for this to occur.

With the rising popularity of live betting, there are plenty of betting sites to choose from for punters. They will generally offer a simple live betting interface that’s easy to navigate and it will come with a large number of markets. Of course, this depends on the website that you’re using. Some websites will have more advanced features than others.

So it’s important to find a betting site that you feel comfortable since the interface can make or break your success. If you’re using an interface that’s slow to load, doesn’t have updated odds or is hard to navigate, betting live is going to be tough in this situation, especially with rapidly changing odds. The benefit of live betting is taking advantage of value odds and this is why choosing an interface that works for you is critical.

Before you start live betting on a World Cup match, it’s a good idea to perform some pre-game research and create a game plan based on how the match should unfold. Look through the betting markets before the game and find bets that you’re interested in. You can also use the pre-game betting markets to your advantage, such as the odds aren’t as good before the game but they could improve during the live action.

Along with live betting, live streaming is another popular betting feature offered by betting sites. In the industry, Bet365 and Unibet are your best choices when it comes to live streaming sports. They have a large range of live streaming sports available from popular to unique options. There’s going to be a wide range of Soccer matches from leagues around the world to watch live and bet at the same time

Streaming the World Cup is possible but it depends on your country and location. For example, Australia can only watch the Cup via SBS (Special Broadcasting Service) as they hold exclusive rights. While in the United States, the Cup can be streamed on the Fox Sports App or with a premium Peacock subscription. Television Stations Fox, FS1, Telemundo and Universo will broadcast the Cup for USA customers as well. Generally, bookmaker websites are unable to live stream the World Cup since television rights override them.

Before the Cup begins, it’s possible to bet on futures and this can provide plenty of value odds for punters. The most popular futures bet is World Cup winner. Obviously, this is a tough bet to pick a winner but with features like cash out, you can use this to your advantage as the tournament progresses. If you bet on an underdog country and they’re performing well in the tournament, you can choose to cash out your bet and take the money in case they get knocked out.

There’s also the opportunity to bet on the Golden Boot winner. It’s a good idea to focus on the top strikers from the favourite nations, such as Brazil, France and England. At this stage, English striker Harry Kane is one of the top favourites to score the most goals in the Cup. He did win this award in 2018 with 6 goals. The other strikers include Romelu Lukaku, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Another popular futures bet is focusing on the Group stages. This is where you can find a lot of value, especially in groups that aren’t totally obvious about who’s going to qualify. Group A is one example for the 2022 Cup. The Netherlands are the clear favourites to finish first in the group. But second place is up for grabs between Senegal, Ecuador and the tournament hosts Qatar. Group B is fairly similar as you have one of the tournament favourites England. But second place could go either way with Wales, USA and Iran.

Group C should be dominated by Argentina and a South American rivalry matchup between Mexico and Argentina will be one of the games to watch in the early stages. Group D features France and Denmark as the two favoured teams to advance to the next stage and it’s hard to disagree. In Group E, Spain and Germany will battle for the top position. It’s hard to see Group E finishing any different. Group F is highlighted by two countries that are coming off excellent performances in 2018 – Belgium and Croatia.

Group G features one of the tournament favourites in Brazil and they should have no problem finishing first. However, the second place should be an intriguing battle between Switerzland, Serbia and Cameroon. Lastly, Portugal and Uruguay feature in Group H. Both sides shouldn’t have much trouble finishing 1st and 2nd.
