It’s difficult to predict how the competition will pan out in 2022. African football is on the rise, with an increasing number of countries producing excellent talent. Countries like Ghana, Morocco, and Senegal.
Algeria turned up in the final to take the AFCON Cup 2019, with players like Riyad Mahrez they could easily do it again. The Manchester City man will line up next to Slimani, Brahimi and Feghouli when they head to Cameroon. But, the bookies don’t fancy them this year. Unlike Eygpt, who have Liverpool superstar Mohammad Salah.

What are the Types of Africa Cup of Nations Betting Odds
Africa Nations Cup betting odds aren’t limited to futures markets – each of the 52 matches at AFCON 2022 can be bet on, and whenever you’re betting on individual soccer games there are stacks of different lines and markets for you to choose from.
The key thing to remember when betting on international soccer tournaments is that unlike the majority of North-American sports, moneyline bets have three outcomes. All matches including the knockout stage fixtures can finish as a draw after 90 mins in addition to a win or loss to your team.
The good news is that you will always get better moneyline odds on soccer bets, so as long as you’re aware that the draw is always a possibility, you’ll have the potential to receive a higher payout on all moneyline soccer wagers.
If you prefer a two-option outcome, all top sportsbooks will give you the chance to eliminate the draw by selecting the ‘draw no bet’ line, which results in a push (or refunded bet) in the event a draw occurs. In knockout matches, you can select the ‘odds to progress’ line to select the winner of the match including any possible extra-time or penalty shootout.
