The 2022 FIFA World Cup begins in less than a week. One of the first matches of the tournament takes place on Thursday, Nov. 24 between Portugal and Ghana.

It's been a while since Portugal has had a deep run worth being proud of. The Portuguese haven't made it beyond the Round of 16 in any of the last three tournaments, leaving them hungry for a statement win. Meanwhile, Ghana will be determined to win their first World Cup game since 2010.

Can Portugal make easy work of their upcoming opponent? Or will Ghana shock the world by pulling off a major group stage upset?

Portugal vs Ghana Prediction & Pick

Ghana might be over their head in this matchup. Portugal is expected to be a force in this tournament, favored at -140 to win Group H (Ghana sits at +1100, No. 3) while also being tied for the seventh-best odds (+1500) to win the entire World Cup.

Again, Ghana hasn't even won a World Cup game in over a decade. Though the Portuguese haven't been perfect, they've at least made it beyond the group stage in three of the last four tournaments. With Portugal also boasting one of the best players in the world in Cristiano Ronaldo, it's easy to see who will win this one.

Final Score Prediction: Portugal: 2 | Ghana: 0

Don't expect a lot of goals in this match. For starters, Ghana has scored only three goals over their last four games, being shut out twice in that span. Meanwhile, Portugal has also been held off the scoresheet twice in their last three outings, showing that there might be some offensive concerns.

Erring on the side of caution, back the total going under 2.5 goals.
