The Chances Of Qatar In Their Group According To Bookmakers

As the world cup is drawing nearer, teams and fans are preparing; bookies are not also left out.

Platforms like


are declaring the odds depending on the chances of each country's progress. Amongst the 32 countries, one that has been in the spotlight like never before is the host, Qatar. For the first time in the history of the tournament, Qatar is hosting the world cup and all eyes are on them.

As much as many things are favoring them in their land, there are so many questions about their potential performance in the tournament. What are the chances of leaving the group stage? How about the knockout stage? Do they stand a chance at lifting the gold? We will give you your answers as you read on.

Qatar’s Chances In Their Group

The hosts are in group A which contains three other teams namely:

  • Ecuador

  • Netherlands

  • Senegal

Compared to these three teams, it is safe to say that the hosts are the group underdogs. They are set to face Ecuador in the kickoff fixture and as it stands, Qatar is the underdog in most bookies—which is not a surprise. After the kickoff fixture, they will face Senegal before the Netherlands. And in both games, they are also projected to be the underdogs.

In fact, in group A, Qatar has the highest odds for most likely to qualify for the knockout stages. If you are conversant with gambling, you will know that it implies that the hosts are rated as the team with the lowest probability of going to the next round.

Do They Stand A Chance Of Making the Knockout Stage

Amidst the underdog conversations, we should ask ourselves; is Qatar really worth being written off as fans and spectators? Do they really stand no chance as it seems on paper? We believe not so! Many people seem to undermine the power of hosting a competition.

Being the hosts automatically means they get the most support from fans and the media. And although not many people admit or know it, these little constituents also play a part in team performance. We believe everybody should be prepared to see the best Qatar ever because they have everything to fight for in this tournament.

Apart from the fact that they are hosting and playing in a prestigious quadrennial tournament directly in front of family and friends, the prize money is also bountiful. Whichever country is victorious stands a chance at winning over $400 million, so why won't they give it their all? And combined with the

technological prowess

of the country, we believe this one will stick to our memories.
