The Most Popular Picks from the $1 Million Dollar World Cup Challenge

Have you played the FOX Super 6 $1 Million Dollar World Cup Bracket Challenge still?

It’s a free competition where you choose which teams will advance to the knockout stage from each of the eight groups of the 2022 FIFA World Cup and then predict the winners of the knockout stage all the way to the final.

Entries are flying by, so don’t miss your chance to have fun and maybe even win $1 million!

Compete with our featured brackets including Alexi Lalas, Rob Stone, Landon Donovan, Carli Lloyd, Clint Dempsey, Stu Holden, Doug McIntyre and dozens more.

So far, the contestants in the pool are all in two countries to win it all.

Brazil and Argentina were the two teams most often picked to reach the final between the competing groups, with France and England completing the top four picks in the semi-finals. The other tournament favorites Spain and Germany were selected in fewer groups than the United States to reach the semifinals.

Brazil and Argentina are set to reach the finals in more than 25% of groups, coming in at 28.2 and 27.7% respectively, much, much higher than the United States (10.7%) and France (7.1%).

Let’s break down how the numbers break down and take a look at some of our talent picks below!

Group winners

  • Holland (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%

Argentina and Brazil are not only the favorites for the final in our groups, but also have relatively weak groups. So it makes sense that the majority of group entries have those two teams breaking out of their respective groups and winning them outright.

The Netherlands also benefits from an underappreciated group, which includes host country Qatar. Despite not being among the favorites to reach the final or even the semi-final, the Dutch are the second most common choice to win their group with 78.3%. England and France complete the top five.

And don’t worry about the USA – the USMNT is the most common pick to finish second in Group B (58.4%) and reach the knockout stage.

To pass to the round of 16

  • Brazil: 92.5%
  • Argentina: 79.2%
  • England: 66.7%
  • France: 64.9%
  • Portugal: 57.8%
  • United States: 45%

Brazil leads the way, the team that has selected the most to reach the round of 16, with an overwhelming percentage of groups in their favor.

Defending champions France surprisingly have less support than England to reach the knockout stages. England have only won the tournament once, in 1966.

The USMNT is also a popular team for the round of 16, with 45% of the contestants showing some affection to the young team.

Advance to the quarterfinals

  • Brazil: 68.9%
  • Argentina: 67.7%
  • France: 43.7%
  • Portugal: 26.1%
  • England: 25.2%
  • United States: 19.4%

To no one’s surprise, Brazil continues to lead the way, with holders France gaining popularity.

On the other hand, the group competitors are not very confident that England will reach the quarter-final stage. The Three lions move from the third most likely to reach the round of 16 to the fifth most likely to reach this stage.

Advance to the semifinals

  • Brazil: 39.9%
  • Argentina: 34%
  • France: 28.2%
  • England: 14.6%
  • United States: 13.6%

Items in parentheses are nothing if not consistent. Brazil and Argentina are still the top two teams backed to reach the final four. But there’s a surprise: the United States is right up there with England as a popular choice for the semi-finals.

In other words, contestants are rooting for the USMNT to go for a deep run.

Advance to the finals

  • Brazil: 28.2%
  • Argentina: 27.7%
  • United States: 10.7%
  • France: 7.1%
  • Germany: 6.1%

Brazil and Argentina continue to shine, but perhaps in a display of our country’s pride, the USMNT is the third most selected country to reach the 2022 World Cup Final.

All the magic kicks off on FOX starting Sunday, so be sure to fill in the brackets before it’s too late. You don’t want to miss your chance to win $1 million dollars!
