Betting on the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Australia

-

Few sporting events in the world garner the level of international attention as the FIFA World Cup and the 2022 edition in Qatar promises to be no different.

Australia, along with 31 other countries from across the globe have qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and with football’s biggest prize on offer on December 18th, it should be an incredible month of footballing action.

As ever, the gambling industry will be licking its lips at the prospect of the world’s best sides going head to head, and betting on the FIFA World Cup is one of the most popular markets across any sport. Choosing the best betting company in Australia to use to bet on the World Cup with is no easy task, with so many high-quality sportsbooks currently on the market.

The myriad of betting options available on the World Cup makes it the perfect competition for all levels of punter to look to keep their bankroll ticking over. With 64 matches taking place in a whistle-stop 28-day period, the first-ever winter World Cup looks to be one to remember and Australia will be hoping to spring a few surprises along the way.

Here is a rundown of how to bet on the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Australia:

Back the in-form teams and players

One of the unique aspects of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is its placement in the calendar, with it being the first ever World Cup to have been held in the middle of the traditional European footballing schedule. As a result, most of the biggest players and teams have been plying their trade for their domestic teams for a couple of months and they should be fighting fit on arrival in Qatar.

Ascertaining which players are in form can be hugely useful when betting within the Golden Boot or Golden Glove market, with players very likely to take confidence from their strong domestic performances and to be ready to perform for their countries. Similarly, any nation that has been in good nick in the warm-up games, should in theory be raring to go when the tournament starts, making backing the in-form teams and players an effective World Cup betting strategy.

Bet with the head, not the heart

The Socceroos will be hoping for an improved showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, having bombed out in the group stages at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. In a strange twist of fate, Australia will take on 2 of the same 3 sides in the group stages once again in Qatar – having been paired up with both France and Denmark. Tunisia complete the line-up in World Cup Group D and whilst the Socceroos will be outsiders to qualify, they will believe they can push the bigger sides all the way here.

Key to betting on any World Cup campaign is ignoring the sense of national pride and looking to bet rationally on every market available. Every country gets wrapped up in the euphoria of a World Cup and few sporting events have the ability to bring a nation together in the way a World Cup does. However, being objective when placing any bet is key to success, especially when a supported team is involved.

Get on board with the bookmaker offers

The World Cup is undoubtedly one of the biggest sporting events on the planet and the sense of anticipation and excitement for one tournament every 4 years is unrivalled. Whilst the narrative surrounding the 2022 World Cup in Qatar hasn’t always been a positive one, all sportsbooks in Australia will be looking to pump out plenty of promotional activity ahead of and during the FIFA World Cup.

You will find a full list of the best bookmakers and their offers at Match.Center Australia. Free bet credits and tokens, to both new and existing customers, are sure to be easy to get hold of when betting on the World Cup. In addition, a range of in-play betting promotions are also sure to be available, enabling all levels of punter to find something useful for them.

Shop around for the best odds

There are 64 matches that comprise the 2022 FIFA World Cup, each presenting punters with an opportunity to increase their bankroll. With so many matches to choose from and plenty of bookmakers out there, feeling overwhelmed by the amount of choice on the market can be a familiar feeling for some punters.

Shop around for the very best odds on the market. The likes of Bet 365, Ladbrokes, and TAB will all be vying for custom in the congested Australian sports betting marketplace, and doing prior research on the best football and in turn, World Cup betting odds and markets will enable players to get the most out of their betting experience.
