So far, the contestants in the brackets are set to two countries to win it all.
Brazil and Argentina were the two teams most often picked for the finals among the competing groups, with France and England rounding out the top four semi-final picks. The tournament’s co-favourites, Spain and Germany, were selected in fewer groups than the USA to reach the semifinals.
Brazil and Argentina are in over 25% of the finals groups with 28.2% and 27.7% respectively – much, much higher than the United States (10.7%) and France (7.1%).
Let’s dive into how the numbers break down, and take a look at some of our talent’s bracket picks below!
- Netherlands (Group A): 78.3%
- England (Group B): 72.1%
- Argentina (Group C): 84.0%
- France (Group D): 77.1%
- Germany (Group E): 58.6%
- Belgium (Group F): 69.2%
- Brazil (Group G): 95.9%
- Portugal (Group H): 67.0%
In our groups, Argentina and Brazil are not only the favorites for the final, they also have relatively weak groups. So it makes sense that for a large majority of bracket entries, these two teams would come out of their respective groups and win them outright.
The Netherlands also benefit from a low profile group that includes host country Qatar. Although the Dutch are not among the favorites to reach the final or even the semifinals, they are the second most popular choice to win their group with 78.3%. England and France complete the top five.
And don’t worry about the United States — the USMNT is the most common pick to finish second in Group B (58.4%) and advance to the knockout stages.
