We have a range of World Cup odds and picks available across every team, group and game of the tournament in Qatar. Here is how we think Brazil will fare at the World Cup, and which betting odds are currently standing out to us.
Although Brazil and the World Cup have a largely symbiotic relationship, it has one that has become rather strained during the past couple of decades and after losing 7-1 to Germany in the 2014 Semi-finals, it was a relationship that was perhaps broken forever.
However, time is a wonderful healer and with eight years now passed since that mauling at the Estadio Mineirao, many feel that a trip to Qatar, is one that will finally offer the nation sporting salvation.

Brazil To Win Outright – 5/2
Before the World Cup draw was made in April, Brazil were largely considered the frontrunners in the outright market. Fast forward to the start of that month and the five-time winners of the competition have only reinforced that sentiment.
A sentiment that comes not only because Group G has been largely favourable to them, but also because of a potential England versus France clash in the opposite half of the draw and if that does come to fruition, it will only make Brazil’s lives even easier.
That is not to say that Brazil can simply turn up to Qatar and steamroller each of their opposition, if only because the World Cup is never that easy. However, this is a side that certainly has the talent to allow them to do so.
Now it is all about the application of that talent and perhaps the issue in the past, was turning up thinking the tournament was already won. Remove that level of thinking and manager Tite and his players will have the best opportunity of Brazil winning the World Cup in 20 years.
Neymar Golden Boot – 22/1
If Brazil are to go all the way, then goals are going to need to be in regular supply and if the supply is going to come from one player in particular, it is likely to be their talisman Neymar. Which is why backing him in the Golden Boot market is certainly worth some consideration.
Because although Neymar is considered one of the world’s very best, he is still lacking that statement on the international stage and if he can earn a World Cup and Golden Boot double, his statement will be a rather loud one.

Brazil 2022 World Cup Squad
The defending champions are back, and this is the group of players chosen for the Brazil 2022 World Cup squad.
- Goalkeepers: Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Man City), Weverton (Palmeiras)
- Defenders: Dani Alves (Pumas), Danilo (Juventus), Alex Sandro (Juventus), Alex Telles (Seville), Bremer (Juventus), Eder Militao (Real Madrid), Marquinhos (PSG), Thiago Silva (Chelsea)
- Midfielders: Bruno Guimaraes (Newcastle), Casemiro (Manchester United), Everton Ribeiro (Flamengo), Fabinho (Liverpool), Fred (Manchester United), Lucas Paqueta (West Ham)
- Forwards: Antony (Manchester United), Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal), Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal), Neymar (PSG), Pedro (Flamengo), Raphinha (Barcelona), Richarlison (Tottenham), Rodrygo (Real Madrid), Vinicius Jr (Real Madrid)
When it comes to the best players in Brazil squad, it is arguably harder to list who is not considered a genuine world-class talent. Then again, we are only interested in the cream of the crop and that crop must surely begin with Neymar.
A player who won the lot with Barcelona and then nearly achieved the same with PSG and although Ligue 1 certainly has its detractors, it certainly allows Neymar to turn the league into something of a personal playground.
While for those who like their football with a Premier League flavour, two more attacking talents will be on hand to supply the goals and with both Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus both making moves to North London, a place in the starting eleven will depend on how they fare for their new employers.
Not to forget the other end of the playing field and with Tite having both Manchester City’s Ederson and Liverpool’s Alisson to call upon between the sticks, the manager may also have another tough decision to make before their opener against Serbia.
Brazil arrive at the World Cup on the back of seven wins in a row, with five of those coming alongside a clean sheet, and just two goals have been conceded. They’ve scored plenty too, 26 in those seven games, showing the type of flair we are used to seeing from a Brazilian national team.
The question mark comes with the opposition they’ve played though. Those seven wins have come against four teams who haven’t made the finals, and three that have. The three that have, are Japan, Ghana and Tunisia, you’d expect at least two of those to not make it past the group stage, so it’s not like Brazil have been beating top teams during this run.
Brazil World Cup History
Five time winners Brazil need no introduction at the World Cup. They’ve been at the finals 22 times, first won the trophy in 1958, and most recently in 2002. Wins in 1962, 1970 and 1994 came in the middle of those dates.
Most recently, Brazil were knocked out in the quarter finals of the 2018 tournament in Russia, and are expected by many to go better than that this time around.
Verdict: How Far Will Brazil Go At The 2022 World Cup?
To Win Outright – 9/2
Now it is a case of reinforcing the message above and although those reasons for Brazil’s win seemed rather solid, there is also another factor that has yet to be considered – the potentially punishing weather in Qatar.
Because although the European nations may find the uptick in heat a struggle, this will be light discomfort at best for Brazil and with this additional reason in the locker, it only strengthens the case for them to win outright in Qatar.
