World Cup Betting Outrights

Outright bets are wagers you make on the overall results of a tournament. The most popular World Cup outright bet you can place is on which team will win the final and claim the FIFA World Cup trophy. It’s an exciting way to get behind a team that isn’t your country from before the games begin. You can place outright bets on favorites like Argentina, Brazil, or France, or you can take a chance on promising underdogs… such as England?

Other World Cup outright bets you can place with us include predicting the team that will reach the final, the winning continent, the Golden Boot and Golden Glove winners, and the Young Player of the Tournament. If you’re a football expert and you can call a winner before the tournament starts, outrights are the bet for you.

World Cup Betting Markets

Alongside our selection of World Cup outright bets, you’ll find all the World Cup betting markets you’d expect to see from a leader in sports betting at Grosvenor Sport.

Bet on the half-time and full-time results of matches, both teams to score, the total goals scored, total corners, total yellow cards, and more. Place each-way bets, double-chance bets, Asian Handicap bets, over/under bets, and accumulators.

Use our Bet Calculator to see the odds and payout of bets you’re planning. Also, refer to our guide on football betting terms to make sure you understand the range of bets we offer.

World Cup Betting Tips and Strategies

Football is a funny old game. It’s unpredictable and upsets happen frequently. After all, it’s one of the reasons why football is the most popular sport in the world. Who could forget Germany smashing host nation Brazil 7-1 in 2014, or Saudi Arabia beating eventual tournament winners Argentina 2-1 in Qatar 2022?

But although football can be unpredictable, there are tips you can follow and strategies you can use to help improve your chances of winning, such as:

Pay Attention to the Pundits

Listen to the experts when they make predictions on the outcome of matches, their World Cup favorites, and the players they fancy performing well at the tournament. This includes the odds offered by us. While the experts aren’t always right, they offer valuable insights that should inform your World Cup betting decisions.

Keep Your Eye on the Stats

Modern football offers a wealth of stats that you can easily access. Pay attention to the form and underlying statistics of teams and players before you place your bets with sites like Opta Sports. Look at key data points, like passing accuracy and key passes made for playmakers. Check out goals per shot on target and expected goals for strikers. Look into expected clean sheets for defenders and goalkeepers. Stats is another area where listening to the experts is vital, with plenty of experts offering their interpretations of the data.

Watch the Games

While statistics can give you a powerful insight into form and performance, you need to watch the teams and players you’re betting on. You need to understand more than just the raw numbers to develop an instinct for predicting outcomes and placing the right bets.

Understand the Bets You’re Placing

You need to fully understand every bet you’re making before you place your stake. While football betting can look complicated at first glance, we can help you get up to speed with our World Cup betting guide and our guide to football betting terms.

Stay Impartial

Although the World Cup embodies national spirit, passion, and emotion, it’s important to maintain a clear head when it comes to betting. Place bets based on logic rather than emotions to ensure you make informed choices and avoid placing bad bets.
