World Cup 2022 Bids: The United States Odds Of Landing The Cup Are Slipping

Yesterday evening, the United States was the betting individual’s favorite to earn World Cup 2022 host duties after a presentation that included Bill Clinton, Morgan Freeman, and Landon Donovan. But by this morning, Qatar had become the favorite and Australia moved into a second-place tie.

The good news, for those of us who want the World Cup as opposed to those of us who are already upset about the Georgia Dome monster truck events the Cup would displace, is that either way the U.S. is one of three favorites. Japan and South Korea are listed at pointlessly long odds, 33/1 and 40/1 respectively. Only a total Japan or South Korea homer would take those bets.

The decision is scheduled to be announced at 11 a.m. The 2018 Cup will be awarded at 10 a.m., with England the frontrunner over Russia and Spain/Portugal and the Netherlands/Belgium bringing up the rear.
