2022 World Cup: Bet on Ecuador
It’s here, fútbol fans.
The Cup arriveth.
That may be Arabic or Greek to me but to thee, I do know this is a glorious time of year for you and me.
Snap to it and get awake because the World Cup brings out the universe’s best, every four years — except politicians.
But forget about those clowns, gobblers, and stuffing for a moment. Those belt-loosening naps are coming soon but not on World Cup-watch time. It’s a thing. Ask bar and pub owners across this country, never mind elsewhere.
Ahem, set aside your differences and pass the pie and let’s get down to enjoying this global affair while we still can, huh?
Soccer is fun and the fans are the most gorgeously delirious group of humanity you’ll ever witness.
Here at OddsSeeker.com, we’ve got you covered on ways to wager on the World Cup, starting here: World Cup Betting Favorites: Golden Boot, Golden Glove, and Golden Ball Picks and here on USA versus Wales in Group B, Match 1.
Ecuador (+100) to Qualify from Group A; +500 to Win Group
The Netherlands are heavy favorites to win this group and the Oranje do indeed look rock-solid with several veterans.
Ecuador, on the other hand, is full of youngsters. The squad opens the 2022 World Cup against host-country Qatar – so you never know there. Eye roll. Let’s see how this match is called.
If Ecuador gets past that gantlet, then the Dutchmen await.
José Cifuentes, Piero Hincapié, and Gonzalo Plata are a divine trio (excuse me La Tri) so I’m betting that they keep it close, possibly a draw or a flat-out 1-0 win.
After that, it would be Senegal, whose star Sadio Mané was just ruled out of the entire Cup after undergoing leg surgery.
Stat-wise, La Tri scored 1.5 goals per match (second only to Argentina) in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying. Ecuador’s defense is stout, too, as the squad allowed just 19 goals (with a stifling 4-2-3-1 set) during their run to Qatar.
The biggest question is experience and how much will that matter in this World Cup.
Ecuador has a talented youthful exuberant roster, but will that be enough to get past the more experienced squads of the Netherlands and Senegal?
I think they’re at least advancing, which is why I love the +100 there and if you’re feeling foot-loose and free-kickin’-fancy-free take the +500 to conquer the group.
And sincerely, the same to all of (mostly) the countries and people involved.
I guess this is when beliefs need to be bygones (OK but just for a bit) and let’s just see, once again, which country is best heading into 2023.
Hey, it could be that the pesky United States (+13000 – yeah, you read that right, 130-to-1) that wins it all.
