A place in the last 16 of the World Cup is on the line when these two European rivals meet and that should mean plenty of goals

Serbia and Switzerland will go at it on Friday, Dec. 2, to determine second-place in Group G. While there's a path for Cameroon to qualify, it's a longshot as they'd have to beat Brazil.

Serbia will need a win in this match after blowing a 3-1 lead in their 3-3 draw vs Cameroon. Switzerland just needs one point to advance.

This has the makings of an intriguing match. With that in mind, let's take a look at the best bets and props for this Group G fixture between Serbia and Switzerland.

Serbia vs Switzerland Current Odds

  • 3-Way Handicap: Serbia (+150) | Draw (+230) | Switzerland (+175)
  • Draw No Bet: Serbia (-130) | Switzerland (-105)
  • Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (-102) | Under 2.5 (-141)

Serbia vs Switzerland odds are current as of Wednesday, Nov. 30, from BetMGM Sportsbook unless otherwise noted.

Serbia come in as short favorites, which is partly because they need a win to advance, so they'll be pushing forward. Having said that, it gives us good value on Switzerland, who have been the better side.

The total is more expensive on the Under because Switzerland are one of the most organized sides in the tournament. Even consensus-favorite Brazil had trouble breaking them down in their 1-0 win.

Serbia vs Switzerland Prediction

Serbia 1-1 Switzerland

We can project Switzerland to come out in a defensive shell because they only need a draw out of this match. This is a strong defensive side that has conceded just over one expected goals in this tournament.

The issue here is that Serbia have some firepower up front, namely Aleksandar Mitrović. This is a team that has created over two expected goals so far, making it difficult to see Switzerland maintaining a clean sheet in this match. It wouldn't surprise me to see Serbia score first.

However, Switzerland is the more composed side here. We saw that with how they took care of business against Cameroon in a 1-0 win, whereas Serbia blew a 3-1 lead.

Look for this match to end in a draw, allowing Switzerland to advance to the knockout stage.

Serbia vs Switzerland Betting Tips

  • Serbia has 2.37 expected goals scored and 4.42 expected goals conceded.

WAGER: 1 Unit

We've spoken about Serbia's talent in the final-third, but we should also acknowledge how they've struggled defensively.

They've given up 4.42 expected goals throughout this tournament. This makes it likely that we'll see Switzerland find a way to score in this match.

I lean Switzerland to advance out of this group, but I'm not sure whether it will be with a win or a draw. I'll roll with Both Teams to Score due to Serbia's defensive shortcomings.
