Wales World Cup Betting
With a tense play-off win over Ukraine now in the history books, it means that Wales are off to Qatar and with this being their first finals appearance in 64 years, they are not looking to simply make up the numbers in the Middle East.
Because although this Wales side will be considered more as outsiders than opposed to contenders, that does not mean that they can overlooked either and especially when it comes to snaring one of the two qualification slots out of Group B.
Two which will likely become one when you consider England’s participation in the same group and with the two nations previously meeting in the Euro 2016 group phase, Wales would love nothing more than to exact revenge for their last-minute defeat in Lens.

Wales 2022 World Cup Squad
Although it would be unfair to label Wales as a one-man team, there is no doubt that Gareth Bale holds the weight of the nation on his back and with a move to the MLS now announced, his aim will be to reach peak physical condition when the tournament gets underway.
Something that may not have been achieved in the war of attrition which is the EFL Championship and with the former Real Madrid forward opting for Los Angeles instead of Cardiff, the risk of injury before November will have been subsequently lessened.
However, it is not just Bale who will be on the plane to Qatar and although Aaron Ramsey had a forgettable spell in Glasgow recently, he is another player who can easily put any club issues to one side on behalf of Wales.
Add now veteran defender Ben Davies to the mix and the trio will certainly be the three generals that will help lead the likes of Neco Williams and Kieffer Moore into international battle at the end of the year.
Wales World Cup Odds
To Win Outright – 150/1
Although Wales will be confident of winning the 2022 World Cup, it is not a feeling that is currently shared by the bookmakers and with them pricing Robert Page’s men at odds of 150/1, it is a bet that may only be placed by those who live on the western side of the River Severn crossing.
Because with a whole host of international powerhouses also earning an invite to Qatar, this Welsh outfit are going to have an incredible amount of work to do and although they have shown their pedigree on the European stage, the World Cup is a whole different level.
A level that Wales are frankly not at and although they will give it everything in the minimum of three fixtures that they will contest at the end of the year, that may still not be enough in the grand scheme of things.
Wales World Cup Predictions
Wales to beat United States – 15/8
When it comes to the complexion of Group B, this is arguably going to be the most important fixture of all and if the formbook is adhered to, this will also define who joins England in the tournament’s Round of 16.
Which is why a win for Wales is going to be so important and with this acting as a de facto final of sorts, backing Gareth Bale and company to come out on top against the United States, offers a decent balance between risk and return.
Wales to beat United States and Both Teams To Score – 6/1
While to expand on the above bet in more detail, there is also a way to extract further value and for those who are in pursuit of goals, this could be the ideal encounter. Because although Wales have Gareth Bale in attack, their defence can be generous from time to time.
Not enough to cause too many issues, but enough to make things interesting at the same time and with United States not being shy in front of goal, backing at least one each but a Wales win in 90 minutes also comes highly recommended.
Verdict: How Far Will Wales Go At the 2022 World Cup?
Wales To Reach Quarter-Final – 6/1
Even though Wales ruling the roost in Qatar may be considered a step too far, making considerable progress is not outside the realm of possibility either and after reaching the last four of Euro 2016, it is going deep in the knockout phase which is of interest to us.
Because although the semi-finals is likely to allude them, the quarterfinals could be a genuine destination for this Welsh side and at odds of 11/2, backing an appearance in the last eight of the tournament is certainly worth your consideration.
