USA Faces Steep Odds to Win 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar on FanDuel Sportsbook
The United States men's soccer team has officially clinched their spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup after a successful qualifying window. Now team USA will set its sights on Qatar, where they'll play in Group B with England, Iran and a fourth opponent still to be determined.
American soccer fans are buzzing with excitement as the men's squad returns to the WC for the first time since 2014. Team USA is expected to face a tough test this winter, though, according to World Cup odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
US Odds to Win World Cup
The United States owns +11000 odds to win the World Cup after the initial group stage draw. That ties them with Mexico, Poland and Serbia for the 15th-best odds, placing them in the middle this 32-team field.
Fellow Group B member England has the third-best odds to win the 2022 World Cup at +650. Iran, meanwhile, checks in at +55000.
The fourth team in Group B will be determined this summer via a one-game playoff. Wales (+21000) has secured its spot in that match, and they will play either Scotland (+37000) or Ukraine (+37000) for the final spot in Group B.
Group B World Cup 2022
The odds to win Group B also project a difficult path for team USA to advance as well.
The United States is +700 to win Group B, placing them behind favorite England (-240), along with Wales (+550), Ukraine (+600) and Scotland (+600). Iran rounds out the group at +1300.
Still, with stars like Christian Pulisic, Tyler Adams and Weston McKinnie, USA is in great position to surprise the soccer world come November.
