FIFA World Cup Picks: Best Group G Games to Bet On 2022

Written by on October 25, 2022

World Cup favored Brazil plays in Group G. No doubt, Brazil should have no trouble winning the group. The other teams in the group: Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon, aren’t as good as Brazil. But although the South American chalk figures to roll through their opponents, the other 3 Group G participants should battle for second place. Check out the three Group G matches you should have on your FIFA World Cup Betting radar heading into the 2022 World Cup tournament.

2022 FIFA World Cup Group G Calendar: Rating Best Games to Bet On

2022 Qatar World Cup

  • When: Nov. 20 – Dec. 18

Group G

  • Brazil
  • Serbia
  • Switzerland
  • Cameroon 

Switzerland vs Cameroon 

  • When: Thursday, Nov. 24 at 5:00 am ET 
  • TV/Streaming: FS1 

Why should you bet this match?

Switzerland’s odds to win the World Cup are +8000. The Swiss have become one of the second tier longshots, after Uruguay and Croatia, to take the title.

At +8000, Switzerland’s odds are on par with Senegal’s. When it comes to this match, the Swiss have more talent than Cameroon.

Goalie Yann Sommer plays for Gladbach, defender Manuel Akanji throws down for Man City, and Denis Zakaria is a Chelsea midfielder. Captain Granit Xhaka is an Arsenal midfielder.

Based on rosters, the Swiss should take this match. But Cameroon has an advantage. The team from Africa should have no trouble handling the heat. 

Not only that, but even though Switzerland is loaded with UEFA League players, none of those players are forwards. If the Swiss do have trouble handling the heat, and finds it difficult to score, this could end up in a much different outcome than many believe.

Switzerland should be a vulnerable favorite. Since this is the first game for both teams, Cameroon could come out ahead. A draw is the more likely outcome. 

Switzerland vs Cameroon Pick: Draw  

Cameroon vs Serbia

  • When: Monday, Nov. 28 at 5:00 am ET 
  • TV/Streaming: FS1 

Why should you bet this match?

Cameroon versus Serbia should be one of the most intriguing matches at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. On paper, Serbia, who is a second tier underdog like Switzerland at +8000 odds, should beat Cameroon.

But Serbia, also like Switzerland, wills struggle in the Qatar heat. Not only that, but how much better, really, is Serbia’s roster compared to Cameroon’s?

Cameroon has had success in this tournament. The African nation made it all the way to the quarterfinals in 1990. The team didn’t qualify for 2018, but all that means is Cameroon will be looking to make amends this year. 

Going back to Cameroon’s roster, players like goalie Andre Onana, who plays for Inter Milan, and Pierre Kunde, who throws down for Olympiacos, will ensure Cameroon is competitive versus the Serbs.

But Serbia starts their World Cup quest versus Brazil. After the Brazilians put a beating onto Serbia, the Serbs will be fired up to make up a possible multiple goals deficit versus Cameroon. Serbia wins.   

Cameroon vs. Serbia Pick: Serbia 

Serbia vs Switzerland

  • When: Friday, Dec. 2 at 2:00 pm ET 
  • TV/Streaming: TBD

Why should you bet this match?

We know about Switzerland’s roster. Now it’s time to take a look at Serbia’s roster. One name on Serbia’s roster stands out, Dusan Vlahovic.

Vlahovic has developed into one of the top strikers in Europe. In 10 starts for Juventus, Vlahovic has 6 goals and an assist.

If Switzerland struggles to score, and their forward room implies the Swiss might, Serbia should take this match. If Serbia beat Switzerland, the prediction here is the Serbs finish second to Brazil in Group G and stamp their ticket to the Round of 16.

Serbia vs. Switzerland Pick: Serbia
