The Super Bowl is famous for the insane betting scene around the NFL’s biggest game. American football can bet on everything from the color of the Gatorade bath to the coin toss to how long it takes to play the national anthem and much more.

While the World Cup final isn’t quite on that level, there are some exciting and fun options for bettors.

Many bookmakers have gone out of their way to add options, knowing the World Cup final will have the highest betting interest and volume of any match over the past year. Some have even come up with creative, fun ways to bet the match that are outside the scope of normal consideration.

As France and Argentina meet in a matchup of football’s biggest superstars, here’s a rundown of all the most interesting bets that seem really out there.

World Cup final alternative bets in USA

Not many of the U.S. sports books are doing anything terribly interesting for the World Cup, but a few have some interesting pre-crafted same-game parlays.

FanDuel has the most interesting selections to choose from. Their promoted parlays are mostly centered around attacking play in the match, so if you think the game will be a low-scoring, cagey affair then these won’t be for you. But if you want another reason to root for the best players to score, there are some fun plays.

The most valuable pick is probably each team to have 1+ shot on target in each half, as that seems a great value at nearly even money (-120).

World Cup final alternative bets in Canada

Sports Interaction in Canada has some of the most fascinating selections on the market for betting the 2022 World Cup final. The most fun options are on their World Cup Specials section, which includes some funny and intriguing options.

The funniest pick is easily the option to bet on whether the captain of the winning team will drop the World Cup trophy, which comes in at +3300 odds. All eyes on Lionel Messi or Hugo Lloris!

There’s also a few Lionel Messi-focused bets, including a “triple play” on Messi to score a goal, assist a goal and pick up a yellow card. We all know Messi’s talents, but will referee Szymon Marciniak have the guts to go to his pocket for the greatest player of all time?

Finally, you can bet on there being a pitch invader at the match. The bet is crafted to where a “yes” bet cashes if “anyone runs onto the pitch during play (excluding players & officials).” Seemingly, that would include coaches!
