FIFA Club World Cup

FIFA Club World Cup Betting

Founded in 2000, the FIFA Club World Cup is a tournament consisting of the six winners of confederation competitions. These six nations will be joined by the champions of the host nation. In 2022, the tournament will be held between February 3rd and February 12th in the United Arab Emirates, meaning that Al Jazira will join the six confederation cup winners. Bayern Munich are the current holders of the Club World Cup and will not have the chance to win back-to-back tournaments. It's been almost ten years since a non-European team won the tournament; however, favourites Chelsea lost their previous attempt to win the competition back in 2012.

None of the sides in this year's competition have previously won the FIFA Club World Cup despite 14 attempts between them. Rafael Benitez's Chelsea made the final back in 2012 but were defeated 1-0 by Corinthians. Thomas Tuchel will be looking to avoid history repeating itself this year.

AS Pirae were nominated by the OFC after the OFC Champions League was abandoned due to the coronavirus. Pirae have never won the Champions League previously but were dominant in the Haitian league, which has given them the opportunity to perform at this competition.

In regards to betting odds, you will typically find that the winners of the UEFA Champions League come into this competition as favourites due to the strength of the competition. This team has also won the competition on all but four occasions, with those four victories going to the South American representatives. The last time the UEFA Champions League winners failed to win this tournament was Chelsea's 2012 failure.

Betting on the FIFA Club World Cup

If you're looking to place a bet on the FIFA Club World Cup, then you'll probably want to avoid outright bets. The tournament favourites are Chelsea, who can be found at 2/15. The only other team you may wish to back outright would be Palmeiras, as the tournament is held in a hot climate, and the South American team are historically the only teams to win outside of Europe. Palmeiras are found with odds of 4/1. If you're looking to back an outsider, these are the teams and odds you can find.

Team Odds
Al Ahly 14/1
Al Hilal 20/1
Al Jazira 80/1
Chelsea 2/15
Monterrey 8/1
Palmeiras 4/1

If you're placing bets on football tournaments, we recommend placing bets per match rather than entire tournaments. This is due to the number of shocks that commonly occur in world football, games are a lot easier to win bets on than entire competitions, plus there is a higher scope to land a bonus if players bet per match rather than a full league or cup. This is why when it comes to FIFA Club World Cup betting, we recommend betting on each round individually.
