Qatar could be surpassed in this entire tournament. But you have to give them credit for controlling the ball 47% of the time against Ecuador but somehow not scoring a single shot. Senegal also had 47% possession but converted it into 4 shots on goal, 1 more than the Netherlands.

Senegal 1 Qatar 0
Money Line (ML)
There is certainly value (+460) in picking the host country to beat the other bottom team in Group A and they face a Senegalese team without an F sadio mane But despite some sparks against Ecuador, Qatar didn’t look like a team to fear.
Senegal have a strong defense and should take at least a point. While it’s a juicy line, Senegal have the tools to win and showed strength in their last game.
LEAN SENEGAL (-150).
So far both games in Group A have gone under 3 goals. Throughout the 2022 World Cup, the high-scoring games came from the tournament favorites, either in a loss or an upset.
Senegal also come into play with a talented defence Youssouf Sabaly and Kalidou Koulibalycurrently playing for Chelsea
These teams scored a total of 4 shots on goal. In total. I can’t imagine this being a high score game, but based on the line I would HAPPEN.
