The 2022 FIFA World Cup field is set after Wales, Australia and Costa Rica cemented their place in Qatar. France will enter the World Cup 2022 as the defending champions, and they'll face Australia, Denmark and Tunisia in Group D. However, Les Blues has struggled in recent weeks, going winless in their last four fixtures, which includes a 2-1 defeat against Denmark in the UEFA Nations League.
Will France repeat as champions, or should you back another favorite like Brazil, England or Spain? The 2022 FIFA World Cup is set to get underway from Qatar on Monday, November 21. According to the latest 2022 World Cup odds from Caesars Sportsbook, France is going off at +550 to lift the trophy.

Top 2022 FIFA World Cup predictions
Green is fading Brazil, who are the favorites to win in Qatar at +450 from Caesars. Brazil is in terrific form ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Brazilians have won each of their last five games in dominant fashion. In fact, Brazil has scored four or more goals in four of its last five fixtures, while posting a clean sheet four times during that span.
In addition, Brazil finished top of CONMEBOL qualifying, going 17 games unbeaten in the campaign. However, the Seleção haven't lifted the trophy since the 2002 tournament in Japan, and Green doesn't believe Tite's squad has what it takes to beat the world's best teams. Plus, Brazil was unable to win the Copa America on home soil last summer, losing 1-0 to Argentina 1-0 in Rio de Janeiro.
"Brazil has not won the World Cup since 2002, and it crashed out in the quarter finals in 2018," Green told SportsLine. "[Brazil] may find France, England or Spain too strong in the latter stages of this tournament."
How to make 2022 World Cup picks
Green has locked in his best bets to win the 2022 World Cup, along with the top picks to win each group. He's also high on two dark horse teams that are listed higher than 60-1 who have a chance to shock the world and win it all. You can only see them here.
