Aside from the players, coaches, supporters, and, well, the whole nation of Morocco, bettors who supported the squad are also rejoicing. Let’s take a look at Saturday’s shock from the standpoint of sports betting at the World Cup 2022 Odds. Morocco was +425 (play $10 to win $52.50 total) to defeat Portugal in the three-way betting market heading before the match.
While it is a great shock, the main news in sports betting is that Morocco was +25000 (play $10 to win $2,510 total) to win the World Cup 2022 Odds before the tournament began. According to Sports Odds History, those are the longest odds for a club to reach the semifinals in the last 40 years.
Those who gambled on Morocco before the competition began are two victories away from a very large Christmas bonus.
And it’s not too late to gamble on Morocco to win the World Cup 2022 Odds, which is currently +850 at OKBET Play (bet $10 to win $95 total).
“They’ve only surrendered one goal so far in the competition, and it was an own goal, so no other team has scored against the battling Moroccans,” FOX Bet sports trader Henrique Tartaro said. “It’s an incredible tale, and you can’t help but root for them.
“Their chances to win it all are as high as +900, making them the underdogs, but that will not deter them.”
Morocco coach Walid Regragui said that his team has more work to do in Qatar.
“Why shouldn’t we hope to win the World Cup?” According to Regragui. “You don’t go anywhere until you dream. It costs nothing to wish.”
Portugal was competing in its sixth World Cup in a row. Portugal finished fourth in 2006, their highest position for Seleço das Quinas (“The Selection of the Shields”).
After the defeat, the players seemed to be in disbelief.
“It seemed like something was quite strange,” remarked Portugal defender and captain Pepe. “The referee kept interrupting the game, so we couldn’t play in the second half on World Cup 2022 Odds.” “It’s a World Cup. It’s not easy to be here and then have someone like this referee come in and prevent us from playing.”
“However, what can we do now? We’re devastated. I believe we had a squad capable of winning it all, but we were unable to accomplish so. I’m furious because they didn’t let us play, and the referee didn’t let us play.”
