Soccer World Cup Betting Options

Now that you know a little more about what the 2022 World Cup odds look like, the next thing to do is decide on how you’re going to wager when placing online and mobile bets:

  • Corners

Taking the appropriate Soccer World Cup odds into account, you could opt to make a Corner wager. This requires that you predict how many corners will be taken or which teams will take them.

  • Double Chance

A very popular FIFA World Cup betting option, Double Chance wagers make it more likely that you’ll collect a payout from a single event. In soccer games, you use it to cover two of the three possible outcomes of a match in a single bet.

According to the latest FIFA World Cup odds, you could choose to back Brazil to win or draw. Or you could take a long shot and decide to back Uruguay to win or draw. And the third option would cover either team winning.

  • Money Line

The Money Line wager asks you to put your knowledge of the most up to date 2022 World Cup odds to work and decide which team or player you think will win a match.

  • Number of Goals

This bet is exactly what its name implies. You need to correctly wager on how many goals will be scored by a certain team, player, or within a preset amount of time. As you can imagine, knowing Soccer World Cup odds plays a huge role in how successful this bet ends up being, just like when you bet on horse racing.

  • Player or Team to Score First

Another wager that carries its description in its name. This Soccer World Cup betting option is a particularly popular one for NZ bettors.

These are just a few of the most popular soccer betting types available to players in New Zealand today.

Controversy Around the 2022 World Cup

Qatar beat the USA to host the World Cup by 14 votes to eight. The country’s questionable human rights record, searing temperatures, and strict Islamic laws raised immediate concerns about the decision, however.

As things currently stand, Paris, France will not broadcast matches on big screens in public, following a similar move made by Bordeaux, Lille, Marseille, and Strasbourg. This is despite Les Bleus going in as the defending champion!

Issues aside, however, it looks likely to be a choice year for Kiwi FIFA World Cup betting with an excellent range of quality sportsbooks making this possible.
