Soccer in Canada has hit a rich vein in the last 12 months with the Canada Soccer Team showing their prowess in qualification to the World Cup. Stars like Alphonso Davies and the transfer rumoured Jonathan David, are expected to set the World Cup alight by the Canadian fans in Qatar 2022. Canada, perhaps since they have not reached the finals since 1986, could be considered underdogs. The spotlight is firmly on the Maple Leafs as they will take stage against some of the best teams in the world, but boy do they have a squad!

Canada World Cup 2022: Future Betting Odds and Analysis

Can Canada win the World Cup? I have to admit that, although I have fallen in love with the Canadian squad and have watched every game of qualification, Canada don’t have the strength in depth to compete with the likes of Brazil. However, at 151.00 at Betway, it could be a good cash-out option or hedge bet strategy to wager heavy on them for percent returns should they make it out of the group stages. I think the smartest wager should be in betting Canada to make it out of the group stages, which will be tough, but will offer good odds and is achievable for the side.

Canada World Cup 2022: Moneyline Odds and Analysis

With Belgium in the group, it will be two games against one of the favorites to win the World Cup. Honestly, the best Canadians should hope for is a draw in one of these games. Croatia and Morocco make up for the rest of the group and, if Canada are going to be successful, they will need at least two wins and a couple of draws to see out this group. Morocco has to be six points and any player wagering on Canada should bet the win in these games. An example of the underdog status against Belgium is the 1.25 the bookies are offering 6 months in advance for Belgium to beat Canada, against Canada’s 12.00

Canada World Cup 2022: Totals Odds and Analysis

Betting Canada on totals could be wise. This is a young team representing their country in the first World Cup since 1986! They will play without fear and will attack sides. I expect Canada to rack up good goalscoring form, especially with the likes of prolific striker, Jonathan David and the pace of Alphonso Davies. Over 2.5 in games against Croatia and Belgium would be a pretty decent bet.

Canada World Cup 2022: BTTS Odds and Analysis

Honestly, I think Canada will score in most games, I even think they will score against Belgium in the opening game. How they defend will be a learning curve for the young side and I doubt they will be able to keep out the creativity of Modric for Croatia and the power of Lukaku for Belgium. Canada will be a good bet for both teams to score at the tournament.

Canada World Cup 2022: Top Goalscorer Odds and Analysis

My underdog for the Top Goalscorer in the Canadian squad is Tajon Buchanan. I think that Tajon has managed good playing time this season after his move from the MLS to Club Brugge. The experience of the young man after a season away from the MLS will bring a different dynamic to his game. The way he floats into the box with late runs could be key in Canada’s success at the World Cup. Between Tajon and Jonathan David, the two will cause problems even without the infamous Alphonso Davies. I think with the organic attention on David and Davies, Buchanan’s floating style will see him ghost into goalscoring opportunities from the side.
