The FIFA World Cup is considered to be the biggest single sport international event in the world. There are approximately 190 to 200 national teams competing to qualify for this major football event.

There are leagues and nations from all over the world, from the top teams to the smaller teams, trying to take the next step to become the best team there is. This also means for bettors, there are a lot of opportunities to bet on and win big since there are always some matches going on.

We’ve written a guide on how to bet on World Cup Football matches and make the right choices, including some tips for active bettors. In case you are ready to place a bet on the World Cup matches, check out our special sports bonuses for new customers.

Selecting the match and the odds

The first step is to select Sports from the main menu and the correct match to bet on, and with this, there are a lot of ways and methods to choose from. It really depends on what you’re going for, what your favorite teams are, and which matches you like to watch. Either you opt-in for a high-risk odds match with odds of above 3.00, or you want to play it a bit safer with semi-risk odds of 1.50 to 2.50. Once you have decided on the match to bet on, you choose the odds and the bet amount on the betting slip and place the bet. If you are up to placing a bet on World Cup 2022, it is worthwhile to look through our World Cup betting overview to get more insight.

The best indicator at first is the odds that are quite close to each other. This means the sportsbook is saying this match is pretty much 50/50. The only edge you can have in this match would be to look into statistics about the teams and see the differences that can lead you to choose the right option.

What you would be trying to look for is matches where you can find statistics that prove the odds wrong, and in a lot of cases, this happens.

If you want to play it a bit safer and not take too many risks, the best option is to play it together with a combination bet. A combination bet is that you group together several different bets in return for higher odds in the betting slip. For low-odds match markets, you can easily just look at the offering and see matches with big differences. However, it’s recommended to take a quick look at statistics on those matches as well to be safe.


The third option is to use Live-betting, which is a preferred choice by many. This means you can place bets during the excitement of a live game, where the sportsbook iBet changes the odds depending on how the match goes. Learn more about World Cup live betting on our dedicated page.

Analyzing statistics

Statistics plays a major role in making a decision to bet either on an underdog or on a team that will most likely win. By looking at overall numbers for specific teams on different matches, and by comparing them, you can get a basic overview of what will most likely happen.

For Football, most bettors use Fastscore, Sofascore, or Livescore as their source of statistics. iBet also has its own statistics -pages and collected the news from the world of sport in our Blog section, so you don’t need to go far for your insight information. What market you want to bet on will basically be the indicator of what statistics you have to look at.
