How does the Women's Basketball World Cup work?
In order to successfully predict the 2022 Women's Basketball World Cup, you need to understand how it works. Rest assured, the organization of the competition is not complicated.
First, from 22 to 27 September, the 12 participating nations take part in a group stage. Divided into two groups of six teams, they must then finish in the top four of their group to see the knockout phase. In this first round, a win earns two points and a loss one point (0 points in case of a forfeit).
In a second phase, from 29 September to 1 October, the knockout stage takes place. The eight teams that qualified in the group stage meet first in the quarter-finals, which leads to the semi-finals and then the grand final. Note that there is also a third place match to decide the bronze medal. A classic format.

Our tips for betting on the Women's World Cup Basketball
There are a few things you need to remember when betting on the Women's World Cup Basketball. Our specialists will give you the most important tips. Use them for this 2022 edition, they should help you to place more reliable bets.
Look at the current form
The first tip is obvious: take into account the form of each team. To do this, look at the last results obtained, but also and especially the different main statistics (% of success in the shot, number of three-pointers scored, number of points conceded etc...). Also weigh the last results according to the opponents the team met, and you will get a good vision of the state of form of each team. For example, a recent win against the USA will be more significant than a win against Puerto Rico. This first tip is important, as many punters are regularly tricked into betting only on the prestige of a nation and its popularity. Don't make the same mistake.
Check the form of the top players
In addition to the collective form of the nations, you should also look at the form of the top players on the floor. As you probably know, individual performances count for a lot in a sport that is centered on statistics like basketball. If the best player of a selection remains for example on insipid performances, you should avoid predicting a win for her team. Your bet would be much less likely to be a winning one than if she had been in form.
Check for potential absentees
In addition to being out of shape, it is possible that a major player will be absent during a game of the 2022 Basketball World Cup. Whether through injury, suspension or even an administrative decision, it is not impossible that a star player will be unavailable for a match. Therefore, if a player who scores an average of 25 points for her team is absent for the game you want to bet on, avoid predicting the success of the team. A Team USA without A'Ja Wilson, for example, will not look the same as when she is on the floor. Never forget that.
Avoid games where there is little at stake
This fourth tip only applies to the last games of the group stage. If a nation is already assured of its place at the end of the initial phase, avoid predicting its success in the remaining games. The coach may decide to rotate his squad, reducing the quality of his team on the floor. Lack of motivation, drop in quality... beware of the trap for your bets! The same reasoning applies to nations already certain to be eliminated in the first round.
Check the value of the odds on offer
Last but not least, determine whether your prediction is worth turning into a bet with a bookmaker. By this, we mean above all evaluating the odds offered on sports betting sites. For example, you think that France has only a 30% chance of beating Australia, and the bookmaker offers odds of 1.80? Run away, the risk taking will not be worth the potential winnings of the bet. On the contrary, you think that the United States has a 90% chance of beating Puerto Rico and your bookmaker offers odds of 1.30? Take a chance. Don't forget that there is a formula to help you: (1 / odds) x 100. It gives you the bookmaker's estimate for a given scenario, and therefore the interest for you to bet according to your own feeling. Remember this.
Stats you need to know for your 2022 Women's Basketball World Cup predictions
