Who is favored to win AFC?

Let’s see which sides are the most likely to win the AFC Asian Cup 2023.

AFC Asian Cup Football Winner Odds and Predictions 2023/2024


The Blue Samurais are no doubt the biggest favorites. They are not only the most successful side but also have the most decorated squad. The Island nation reached the 2nd round of the Qatar World Cup. But in the process, they got the better of the Germans & the Spaniards, 2 former world champions. In the last 2019 Asian Cup, they reached the final but had to finish as the runners-up. This time the pre-tournament odds place them as the top favorites with a 3.40 odd. We suspect they have the highest chance of winning this tournament.

South Korea

They might haven’t won the tournament in the last 60-odd years and have just featured in the finals just once in 2015. But South Korea stands 2nd in the pre-tournament odds and is one of the hot favorites. The Heung Min Son-inspired Korea Republic has all the abilities in its tank to go all the way to clinch the title on this occasion. The last time they had to go home from the quarterfinals as Qatar knocked them out.


The Socceroos played back-to-back finals in 2011 and 2015 while clinching the 2015 edition. However, in the 2019 edition, they were shocked by the Emiratis in the quarterfinals. The Aussie football team reached the Round Of 16 in the Qatar World Cup finishing ahead of Denmark. They were beaten by a close margin by the champions of the tournament, Leo Messi’s Argentina. That shows how capable they actually are on a football ground. The odds put them in 3rd position before the start of the campaign. Our experts also put them among the top 5 contenders for the AFC Asian Cup 2023 title.


Here comes the host as well as the defending champions of the tournament. The Qatari football progressed a lot in recent years and they have just hosted the biggest show on earth. And now they will be on a mission to host the biggest football competition in Asia. But this time the challenge will be more as a participating side rather than being a host nation. Last time, they grabbed their first-ever AFC title but can they defend it this time? The pre-tournament odds put an odd of 9.00 beside their name making the nation the 6th-most favorite. But we think they should be among the top 5 favorites, to be honest.

Saudi Arabia

“Where is Messi!” The only nation whose supporters could claim such a bold statement about the GOAT in the last couple of years. Somehow, Argentina’s only defeat in the WC came against the Arabs. Although they eventually finished behind Poland, Saudi still managed to show a glimpse of their ability on their days. The team that could beat Argentina, why can’t they be the best team in Asia?! They of course can. Their winning chance odds read 8.00 and the Green Falcons will definitely be among the hot favorites for the AFC Asian Cup 2023.


Pre-tournament odds for Iran to win the AFC Asian Cup 2023 are the same as those of Australia (7.50). The 3 times winners haven’t reached a single final since their last-ever title in 1976. They will be keen to break almost 50 years’ trophy draught in this competition. It won’t be an easy challenge for the Iranians but you can count them among the favorites for the forthcoming tournament.

Who will win the AFC Championship 2023?

So, the real favorites for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup are the above-mentioned 6 sides. These 6 nations are the real contenders for the edition. If any other team wins apart from these 6 sides, then you can call it upset, perhaps. So, the possible winners of the AFC Asian Cup 2023 are among:

  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Australia
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Iran.

The teams that can really cause upsets to go all the way are:

  • United Arab Emirates
  • China PR
  • Uzbekistan
  • Iraq
  • Oman.
