Best World Cup 2022 Prop Bets Today | November 25

World Cup Prop Bets

World Cup 2022 is now in full swing, with the second round of fixtures set to take place on Friday.

Qatar, Iran, and Senegal are under pressure to emerge victorious after losing their first games, while England and the Netherlands are looking to make it two wins from two.

Here are recommended prop bets - wagers which cover non-moneyline markets - for Friday’s action.

The odds for November 25 have been supplied by the DraftKings sportsbook, where you can get a $1000 deposit bonus after creating an account.

After a flat first-half display against the USA, Wales came on strong in the second 45 minutes and were ultimately good value for their point. It was no surprise that Gareth Bale was the man who scored their only goal, smashing a penalty into the top corner after he won the spot-kick himself.

Bale is by some distance his country’s all-time leading scorer. He notched all three of their goals in the European qualification play-offs and will once again be on set-pieces against an Iran team that struggled defensively in a 6-2 defeat by England on matchday one.

Bale was mostly quiet against the USA but he still managed to pop up with a goal when his team needed him most. Back the Los Angeles forward to find the back of the net again on Friday.

Qatar vs Senegal (Group A, 08:00 AM EST)

My Pick: Qatar Under 0.5 Goals (-105)

Qatar had one golden chance in their opening game against Ecuador, but Almoez Ali mistimed his header from close range. Perhaps things would have been different had that effort gone in on the stroke of half-time, but Qatar offered very little threat in the remainder of their 2-0 defeat.

That loss leaves the hosts under pressure heading into Friday’s clash with Senegal. Ali has scored 42 goals in 86 appearances for Qatar, but he was starved of service against Ecuador as nominal strike partner Akram Afif spent most of the match deep in midfield.

Senegal’s defense stood up well against the Netherlands until the closing stages when Louis van Gaal’s side scored twice. Qatar will not find it easy to break through their opponents’ backline.

Netherlands vs Ecuador (Group A, 11:00 AM EST)

My Pick: Both Teams to Score (-105)

Both these teams got off to winning starts on matchday one. The Netherlands were not overly convincing in their 2-0 defeat of Senegal, while Ecuador beat Qatar by the same scoreline without ever getting out of first gear. Whichever side emerges triumphant on Friday will almost certainly advance to the round of 16.

The Netherlands deserve to be favorites, despite a showing which was at times lackluster last time out. But Ecuador’s counter-attacking prowess could cause the Dutch a few problems. Ismaila Sarr certainly gave Matthijs de Ligt a tricky game last time out.

Louis van Gaal’s team will probably come out on top, but there is value to be had in tipping both teams to score in this Group A encounter.

England vs USA (Group B, 02:00 PM EST)

My Pick: England Over 1.5 Goals (-150)

At half-time of their game against Wales, the USA would have been extremely happy. Gregg Berhalter’s side were 1-0 up having outplayed Gareth Bale and co. in the first 45 minutes, and they looked set to mark their return to the World Cup with a win.

But Wales came on strong in the second half, and Bale’s penalty earned them a 1-1 draw. It was a disappointing result for the USA given how dominant they had been in the first half. Now Berhalter must gee up his players for what will be a difficult game against England.

Gareth Southgate’s side scored six times against Iran on Monday. The USA are unlikely to be as defensively porous as Team Melli were, but they will nevertheless struggle to keep the likes of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, and Bukayo Saka under wraps for 90 minutes.
