Group G Winner Odds
- Belgium 1.83
- England 2.20
- Tunisia 23.00
- Panama 67.00
I like Belgium to win this group. They have the firepower to light up weaker opponents such as Tunisia and Panama, which they proved by scoring 43 goals in 10 games in qualification. I expect them to have a goal differential cushion when they play England in the third game of the group stage. They will be the favourites to win the game against the English, but being able to secure first place with a draw as well, would give them terrific odds to finish atop the group.
England only scored 18 goals in 10 qualifying matches and I expect them to be happy with 1-0 or 2-0 wins over Tunisia and Panama, which likely won’t allow them to keep pace with Belgium in terms of goal differential.
If I’m right the odds for Belgium to win or draw England will be closer to 1.25 heading into that deciding game.
Play: Belgium 1.83 **These odds could change leading up to and throughout the tournament.
Other Group G Bets
I don’t just like Belgium to win Group G. I like Belgium to win the whole tournament. This golden generation of Belgium players is coming into their prime and they need to win this World Cup to fulfill their promise. The majority of key players on the team are in their mid-to-late twenty’s and playing some of best soccer of their careers. Belgium fell 1-0 to Argentina in the quarterfinals in 2014, and lost a tough match to Wales in the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 after entering that tournament as one of the favourites. It’s now time for Belgium to use this past experience to get over the hump and do damage on the international stage.
Players like De Bruyne, Hazard and Lukaku are elite players in their prime and they need to take advantage of their talent by stepping up for their country in this tournament.
