Spain has won this tournament twice out of the 9 times this competition has been held. The 2 times they topped as champions were back-to-back in 2000 and 2004. Ever since they have gotten close to winning severally but are yet to go all the way. Given their records, it explains they would be rated the second favorite to win the tournament.
Russia is considered the third favorite to win the Futsal World Cup. Russia has relatively not had an impressive run in its 6 World Cup appearances. However, it switched things up in the last World Cup, where it fought until it secured the runner-up position after losing to Argentina in the final. With such an impressive performance in the previous World Cup, it is explainable why it would be rated highly to win this time around.

Here, we will be giving you 2021 Futsal World Cup betting tips and predictions. These will come in handy if you are considering placing a bet on the Futsal World Cup 2021. Here are our top 3 favourites to win the tournament this season:
Brazil has proven time and time again that they are top contenders as far as the final Futsal World Cup is concerned. Since the FIFA Futsal World Cup’s inception, Brazil has either ended as a winner or runner-up. So far, their worst year was in 2016 where they didn’t even make it to the top 4. This new season, we are looking at the old Brazil to make a comeback and show these other teams how it is done.
Spain is the second-highest all-time winner of the FIFA Futsal World Cup, and it is no coincidence they are even rated as second favorites by bookies to win. Despite not coming tops in the last World Cup, they won the 2016 European Championship, their 7th triumph). The Spain National Futsal Team is a force, and we expect them to bring the heat in this coming World Cup.
The Argentina National Team are the defending champions of the World Cup, and there is every possibility they will run on that high to come top in this coming World Cup.
