Qatar 2022 World Cup (Group C Preview) Betting Tips & Predictions

Venues: Qatar Stadiums at Ras Abu Aboud, Al Rayyan, and Lusail
Dates: 22nd – 30th November 2022

Qatar 2022 Group C Betting Odds

There is no disagreement with the odds when it comes to the favorite in Group C. Argentina is priced at 1.36 (4/11) to finish in the first position, and a measly 1.06 (1/16) to book a place in the final 16. The odds of Argentinian bookies are even smaller as the whole nation waits for Messi to lift the trophy.

Mexico is valued at 5.50 (9/2) to secure the top spot and 1.83 (5/6) to make it to the next round. Poland has very similar odds to Mexico. The Red and Whites are pegged at 1.83 (5/6) to qualify for the knockout stages and 5.50 (9/2) to finish as group winners. Saudi Arabia is the least experienced team in this group. The Green Men from KSA are pegged at a huge 26.00 (25/1) to top the group and 7.00 (6/1) to progress.

Argentina National Football Team

Argentina Key Players in Qatar 2022 WC


Argentina is in top form ahead of the World Cup. La Albiceleste won the Copa America last year, defeating Brazil to end their 28-year trophy drought. As South American champions, they qualified for the Finalissima Cup, defeating Italy in the final. Argentina has participated in 17 World Cup tournaments, winning the trophy twice in 1978 and 1986.

Argentina was unbeaten throughout their World Cup qualifying campaign. They had 11 wins and six draws from 17 games. With no losses this year, Argentina is ranked third in the FIFA World rankings, only behind Brazil and Belgium. Lionel Scaloni’s team has already beaten the top teams this year and are a squad to be avoided by opponents in this tournament.

Mexico National Football Team

Gerardo Martinez guided Mexico to its 17th World Cup tournament, finishing second in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers. Despite appearing in many editions of the World Cup, the Mexican National team is yet to clinch the most prized trophy, with their best finish being a quarterfinals appearance in the 1986 World Cup.

Mexico moved down to 13th on the FIFA World rankings after a drop in performances this year. The Tricolor is still expected to provide good competition for Argentina and Poland, so it makes sense to bet on Mexico. Brazil knocked out Mexico in the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup, and Gerardo Martinez would be looking to take the Tricolor past the Group stage.

Poland National Football Team

Poland Key Players in Qatar 2022 WC

Poland makes its second consecutive World Cup appearance in November. The Eagles suffered a Group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup and haven’t made it to the Knockout stages since the 1986 World Cup. Poland had their best World Cup finish in the 1974 and 1982 World Cups, claiming the third spot on both occasions.

Apart from Argentina, Poland should do well against the other teams and have a better chance of making it to the next round in Qatar. Poland has participated in nine World Cup tournaments, with their first appearance in 1938. The Eagles have a very competitive squad, with Robert Lewandowski leading the team in Qatar and attracting Polish bettors to believe in the White and Reds.

Past Performances on Big Events

  • UEFA Nations League 2022, Group Stage exit
  • European Championship 2021, Group Stage exit
  • FIFA World Cup 2018, Group Stage exit

Saudi Arabia National Football Team

KSA Key Players in Qatar 2022

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the weakest team in Group C. The Green Men would be participating in their sixth World Cup. They easily qualified for the World Cup, finishing top of the Asian World Cup Qualifiers. Saudi Arabia has been in great form in continental competitions, but bigger teams like Argentina and Poland would test them.

Considering the quality of teams in this group, Hervé Renard’s team would be happy to match their best World Cup finish — a Last 16 exit against Sweden in the 1994 World Cup. KSA banks on homegrown talents, and they don’t have many players with European experience in their squad. There are very few people that would bet on Saudi Arabia to progress.

Past Performances on Big Events

  • Arab Cup 2021, Group Stage exit
  • Gulf Cup 2019, Runners-up
  • FIFA World Cup 2018, Group Stage exit

Group C Betting Tips and Predictions

Group Winners – Argentina @ 1.36 (4/11)

Since Argentina ended their trophy drought, they have been unstoppable. La Abiceleste achieved a historic one-nil win over Brazil at the Maracana stadium. They went on to win the Finalissma trophy against Italy in a convincing 3-0 win. Argentina is the top-ranked team in this group, and with Lionel Messi in fine form, the Copa America Champions should breeze past the Group stage as winners. If you are looking to place a group winner bet on Qatar World Cup 2022, Argentina is one of the best options.

Straight Forecast – 1st Argentina/2nd Poland @ 2.75 (7/4)

Poland might edge out México and Saudi Arabia with the quality in their squad. Robert Lewandowski is in very good form with years of consistency, and his partnership with Piotr Zieliński might be what takes Poland to the last 16. Argentina is expected to finish top of the group, and a bet on Poland to finish behind the South American Champions is a great option in Group C games.

Argentina Exact Points in the Group Stage – 9 Points @ 3.20 (11/5)

Argentina is unbeaten this year and has beaten teams stronger than their opponents in this group. Lionel Scaloni’s side is very compact at the back and isn’t shy in front of the net. The game against Saudi Arabia should be a walk in the park. Argentina has enough firepower to get the job done against Mexico and Poland. A bet on Argentina to finish the group with a perfect record is a very good option.

Additional Prediction: Poland vs Mexico to Be Decisive

The battle for second place is a tricky one in this group. Either Poland or Mexico is expected to finish behind Argentina. Both teams are expected to get similar results against Argentina and Saudi Arabia, and the fight for second place is might boil down to this clash. The winner of this tie is likely to finish behind Argentina, barring any Surprises from the KSA. Of course, Mexico’s betting sites believe in their guys, with a slight Poland advantage in Europe in terms of odds.
