World Cup Betting Tips: Power-packed Belgium should better England in Group G

ShareClose Comments
With a wealth of attacking talent to pick from, Roberto Martinez looks good value to guide the Red Devils to top spot over the Three Lions in Russia

Belgium completed their World Cup preparations with a thumping 4-1 win over Costa Rica. With Romelu Lukaku looking in ominous form and a star-studded squad, it's no surprise to see the Red Devils as favourites for Group G.

dabblebet's latest World Cup odds see Roberto Martinez's men as 4/5 (1.80) shots to finish ahead of England (23/20), Tunisia (16/1) and Panama (40/1).

While England may feel they too have a good chance of topping the group, it's tough to see the Three Lions outscoring their European counterparts in the first two games against the supposedly weaker nations who look set to employ defensive tactics.

Belgium were the top scoring team in European qualifying, notching 43 goals in their 10 matches. While that tally is undoubtedly helped by two games against international newcomers Gibraltar, Martinez's side also racked up at least four goals on six occasions en route to Russia. That firepower together with a staunch defence should give them the upper hand.

With goal difference the primary deciding factor in the event of two teams finishing on the same number of points, we should see Belgium having the advantage of being able to qualify as winners with a draw in the meeting between the pair on matchday three.

As a result, there's plenty of appeal in the Belgium/England straight forecast at 11/10 (2.10) with dabblebet. This requires the teams to finish first and second in the exact order predicted and adds a bit more juice to the usual 4/5 (1.80) in the Group winner market.

Those looking for a longer price should consider the Belgium/England/Tunisia straight tricast which is available at 13/5 (3.60) with the same firm. Much like the example mentioned above, this offers punters the opportunity to predict the exact finishing order of teams.

Tunisia, while unlikely to trouble the front two in the market, do look to be much better placed than Panama who they'll face in their closing Group G encounter.
