Portugal vs. Switzerland Prediction, Odds & Prop Bets: 2022 World Cup

Last Updated: December 6, 2022
Get set for Tuesday’s Round of 16 clash with a big Switzerland vs. Portugal prediction, plus the latest odds and insights from our friends at FanDuel.

Give Portugal credit for putting distractions aside and powering their way to the Round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. For their exploits, they’ve been rewarded with a knockout round opener they’ll be fully expected to win.

But perhaps that’s exactly what Switzerland, who finished second behind Brazil in Group G play, are hoping for — an excuse to fly under the radar, declare themselves the “nobody believes in us” team, and deliver an end to Cristiano Ronaldo’s storied international career in upset fashion.

With that in mind, don’t expect either of these teams to ease their way into the action at Lusail Stadium; they’re getting right down to business.

Ahead of Tuesday’s matchup, let’s make a Portugal vs. Switzerland prediction and run through the latest odds and props courtesy of our friends at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Portugal vs. Switzerland Prediction & Best Bet

As Devon Platana writes at TheDuel:

This is actually the second time in 2022 that these countries are colliding. They previously met back at the UEFA Nations League in June, which ended with a surprising 1-0 victory for Switzerland. Having said that, Portugal had won three straight matches against the Swiss before that upset loss.

I expect Portugal to be motivated by that loss on Tuesday, upping the pressure early on against Switzerland. There’s also a legitimate chance that this could be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final World Cup match if the Portuguese lose, so it’s safe to say that his teammates will do everything they can to ensure victory.

With a chance to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in 16 years, look for Portugal to get the win.


BEST BET: Portugal moneyline (-115)
