Expectations for hexa have never been higher. Hope for the title of the Brazilian National Team is so alive that it is directly reflected in the world betting market. According to a survey by Betfair, one of the largest bookmakers in the world, 41% of bettors believe in Brazil’s title in 2022. The report also shows that Argentina and France appear right behind, with 17% and 11% of the bets for champion , respectively.

The Betfair survey analyzed the behavior of its bettors in Brazil and around the world, comparing the betting ratio during the Russian Cup in 2018 and the Qatar Cup in 2022.

For foreigners and Brazilians, Brazil is favorite in Qatar

The sixth Brazilian championship is already almost a consensus among Brazilian and foreign Betfair bettors. According to the report, 41% of bettors from around the world place Brazil as champion in 2022.

And all this optimism in seeing Neymar lift the dreamed cup is even greater when it comes to the domestic market. Betfair’s study revealed that 4 out of 5 Brazilians bet on Brazil as champion – 80% of Brazilian bettors.

The odds in the event of a Brazilian victory in the World Cup final is 4.5, that is, for every BRL 1 bet, the return will be BRL 4.50.

“Our specialists in sports analysis and probabilities consider a series of variables when calculating the odds and implied probabilities and the World Cup is no different. Brazil appears as a big favorite for the tournament in Qatar due to the quality of the current squad of stars, the campaign made in the World Cup qualifiers, the positive retrospect and the leadership in the FIFA world ranking, in addition to its tradition in World Cups being the greatest champion of all time. These are just some of the factors considered”, informed the bookmaker.

After 4 years, the Brazilian betting market solidifies

Discredited after the tough elimination in the 2014 World Cup, in 2018 the Brazilians saw the selection fall in the quarterfinals to Belgium. Since then, a lot has changed, including the gambler’s behavior. Betfair’s report analyzes data related to the Russian Cup and shows a misalignment in preferences for champions among Brazilian and foreign bettors.

Although the profiles believed in Brazil’s title in 2018, the world’s bettors placed Germany, France and Spain as the other favorites in this sequence. While in Brazil, bets were directed to Spain, Germany and Uruguay. That year, the big winner was the French team after a 4-2 victory against Croatia.
