FIFA World Cup 2022 Round 3 Predictions & Betting Tips

All odds are with BlueBet Visit BlueBet Now!

It is crunch time in the group stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with plenty still to play for, for a whole host of sides.

Remarkably, only Brazil, France and Portugal possess 100% winning records across all 8 groups – testament to just how open the tournament still is.

For the likes of Germany, Mexico, Serbia and Uruguay, the final game of the group presents an opportunity to silence a few doubters and reach the last 16 – despite not winning either of their opening two games.

Here are our picks for the second round of group stage fixtures at the 2022 World Cup:

FIFA World Cup 2022 Round 3 Predictions

Ecuador vs Senegal

Ecuador ($2.46)

Senegal ($3.3)

Draw ($3.25)

As predicted by many at the start of the tournament, Group A comes down to a straight hit between Ecuador and Senegal for qualification. Both sides have seen off tournament hosts Qatar but whilst Senegal were beaten by the Netherlands, Ecuador managed a draw against the Dutch. That point leaves Ecuador only needing a point in this one to secure qualification and that looks to be the most likely result.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.25) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

Qatar vs Netherlands

Qatar ($17.5)

Netherlands ($1.23)

Draw ($7)

Hosts Qatar have already bowed out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup but how they would love a giant killing here against the Netherlands. The Dutch haven’t been at their best so far in the competition, but they have a young and exciting squad, that is seemingly capable of producing big results. Qatar will be up for this one and should be backed to the hilt, but the Dutch need a point to guarantee qualification and they should pick up all three here.

Betting tip: Netherlands to win the match ($1.23) Bet @ BlueBet

Netherlands to win 3-0

England vs Wales

England ($1.5)

Wales ($8)

Draw ($4.4)

Two old foes meet on the biggest stage as England take on Wales in Group B. England sit on 4 points, knowing any sort of result here would see them through to the last 16, whilst Wales have just one point from their opening two games. Anything can happen in local derbies, but England should have too much quality to overcome Wales in this one.

Betting tip: England to win the match ($1.5) Bet @ BlueBet

England to win 3-1

Iran vs USA

Iran ($4)

USA ($2)

Draw ($3.45)

Iran take on USA in what could be a defining game in Group B. Both sides are still in the hunt to qualify for the last 16 and the result of this one will have a direct bearing on the competition for both teams here on in. Iran deservedly beat Wales last time out, with USA fighting hard to a deserved point against England and with both teams on a high, the draw could be the likely outcome in this one.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.45) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico

Saudi Arabia ($4.9)

Mexico ($1.7)

Draw ($4.4)

Saudi Arabia take on Mexico, with both sides needing points to have any chance of progressing to the last 16. Saudi Arabia beat Argentina in their opening game, securing a famous win but their loss to Poland has pegged them back somewhat. Mexico meanwhile are yet to win either of their opening two fixtures and they know anything less than a win here will see them heading home. That should spur Mexico into a winning performance here.

Betting tip: Mexico to win the match ($1.7) Bet @ BlueBet

Mexico to win 2-0

Argentina vs Poland

Argentina ($1.5)

Poland ($8)

Draw ($4.3)

Argentina take on Poland, with both sides in need of points for qualification. Argentina have won one and lost one of their opening two games and they will need a win here to be certain of progress to the last 16. Poland meanwhile have 4 points from 2 games and if they can keep Argentina out, then they will reach the knockout rounds. This should be a tight, tense encounter – with Argentina’s star quality likely to prove decisive.

Betting tip: Argentina to win the match ($1.5) Bet @ BlueBet

Argentina to win 2-1

Australia vs Denmark

Australia ($7.5)

Denmark ($1.5)

Draw ($4.4)

Denmark’s hopes of reaching the last 16 hinge on their game against Australia. The Danes have just one point from their opening two games, and they take on an Australia side that dug deep to beat Tunisia last time out. This should be an attritional but watchable encounter, with Denmark most likely to have too much when it matters, propelling them into the knockout stages.

Betting tip: Denmark to win the match ($1.5) Bet @ BlueBet

Denmark to win 2-0

France vs Tunisia

France ($1.52)

Tunisia ($8)

Draw ($4.3)

Defending champions France have a 100% record in the tournament so far and they can play a few fringe players against Tunisia, with qualification for the knockout stages assured. France dug deep to beat both Denmark and Australia, whilst Tunisia picked up a point against the Danes but came up short against Australia. Tunisia will be bang up for this one, but France should have too much quality in key areas.

Betting tip: France to win the match ($1.52) Bet @ BlueBet

France to win 2-0

Costa Rica vs Germany

Costa Rica ($27)

Germany ($1.11)

Draw ($11)

Costa Rica take on Germany, still buoyant following their incredible win over Japan last time out. Costa Rica continue to relish their furore into World Cup football and how they would love to derail Germany in this one. It looks unlikely though, with Germany improving upon their defeat to Japan to pick up a draw with Spain and with qualification still in sight, Germany could have the bit between their teeth here – as they chase a big win.

Betting tip: Germany to win the match ($1.11) Bet @ BlueBet

Germany to win 4-0

Spain vs Japan

Spain ($1.44)

Japan ($8.6)

Draw ($4.8)

Spain take on Japan in what should be a highly entertaining encounter in Group E. Spain thumped Costa Rica in their opener before drawing with Germany and they know a single point here would guarantee qualification. Japan meanwhile backed up their great win over Germany with a poor defeat to Costa Rica and they now need a win here to reach the last 16. This should be a belter, with Spain most likely to get the job done and reach the last 16.

Betting tip: Spain to win the match ($1.44) Bet @ BlueBet

Spain to win 3-1

Belgium vs Croatia

Belgium ($2.7)

Croatia ($2.75)

Draw ($3.45)

Two European heavyweights face off, with plenty at stake in Group F. Belgium have three points on the board, after beating Canada but losing to Morocco, whilst Croatia have a point more after also seeing off Canada but drawing with Morocco. There is plenty on the line here for both sides, with a draw looking the most likely result – which may not be enough for Belgium.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.45) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

Canada vs Morocco

Canada ($3.65)

Morocco ($2.2)

Draw ($3.5)

Canada will be looking to spoil the party for Morocco, as the two meet in the final Group F fixture. Canada are out of the competition, following two defeats and they will be looking to restore some pride in this one. Morocco meanwhile beat Belgium and drew with Croatia, and they put their unbeaten record on the line here. This should be a good watch, with Morocco most likely to get the win they need to reach the last 16.

Betting tip: Morocco to win the match ($2.2) Bet @ BlueBet

Morocco to win 2-1

Serbia vs Switzerland

Serbia ($2.6)

Switzerland ($2.94)

Draw ($3.45)

Serbia take on Switzerland, with both sides needing wins to be assured of a place in the last 16. Serbia have just one point to their name from their opening two games and only a win will see them have any chance of qualification. Switzerland meanwhile have three points and beating Serbia will guarantee them a spot in the last 16, whilst a draw may be enough too. There is plenty at stake here, making the draw the most plausible outcome.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.45) Bet @ BlueBet

1-1 Draw

Brazil vs Cameroon

Brazil ($1.28)

Cameroon ($12.5)

Draw ($6.25)

Brazil have booked their place in the last 16 and they will be looking to keep the momentum going against Cameroon. Brazil have a 100% record and they will be looking towards the knockout stages already in terms of squad selection here. Cameroon meanwhile are still in with an outside shot of reaching the last 16 and they will be eager to put in a good showing here. This will be closer than the odds suggest but Brazil should prevail here.

Betting tip: Brazil to win the match ($1.28) Bet @ BlueBet

Brazil to win 3-1

Ghana vs Uruguay

Ghana ($5.5)

Uruguay ($1.75)

Draw ($3.9)

Ghana take on Uruguay with both sides in need of points to assure themselves of a passage to the last 16. Gahan have 3 points on the board following their win over South Korea and another win here would see them through to the knockout rounds. Uruguay meanwhile have just one point to their name and only a win and a positive result for Portugal, would see them into the last 16 too. This should be tight, with no love lost and the draw could be on the cards here.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.9) Bet @ BlueBet

0-0 Draw

Portugal vs South Korea

Portugal ($1.66)

South Korea ($5.25)

Draw ($4.33)

Portugal have assured their spot in the last 16 and they will be looking to keep their side fresh against South Korea. Two wins from two games have seen Portugal through to the knockout stages in Group H. South Korea meanwhile have just one point on the board from two games played and they know it is now or never if they are to reach the last 16. South Korea will be up for this, but Portugal should get the job done.

Betting tip: Portugal to win the match ($1.66) Bet @ BlueBet

Portugal to win 2-1
