If Morocco is a champion, the prizes will be millions

Morocco was one of the teams with the lowest chance of reaching the 2022 World Cup final. The African country had only a 0.29% probability, along with countries such as Japan, Canada, Cameroon, South Korea and Ghana – the implied odds were pointed out by the betting sites, according to the guesses made by supporters and fans.

But this Saturday, December 10, the Moroccans surprised yet another European team. The selection, which was ‘zebra’, achieved an impressive victory over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, making history by becoming the 1st African country to reach a semi-final of the Cup – in the round of 16 Morocco had already defeated the odds and eliminated Spain, on penalties.

Morocco – despite being considered the biggest ‘underdog’ of the tournament – managed to rank first in its group, overcoming teams like Croatia, and eliminating Belgium from the competition – one of the favorite teams for the title. Now, the African team will face France, who beat England in the quarterfinals.

Morocco’s chances of winning the 2022 World Cup

Online sportsbooks paid odds of up to 301 for those who bet on the Morocco selection. This means that those who bet BRL 100 on the Moroccan ‘zebra’ before the start of the tournament can earn up to 30,100% “profit” if that happens.

For those who don’t know what an odd is, here’s a little explanation: it’s a multiplier of the value that a bettor earns if his guess is right and, the closer it is to 1, the more likely a result is (and the further away, the more unlikely). Therefore, implicitly, they indicate the chances of an outcome happening.

For example: Brazil was the biggest favorite to win the competition and paid odds of only 4.50 – but was eliminated by Croatia, still in the quarterfinals. Following our country, there were: Argentina with 13.3% and France with 10.8%, according to the ‘odds’ of the sites Bet365, Betfair and Sportingbet.
