Belgium v Panama Betting Tips
Belgium rattled off a total of 43 goals in World Cup 2018 qualifying and that is devastating scoring power to bring to the table at the 2018 World Cup. It is why they are pegged as one of the strong dark horses. This should be such an easy game for them and they will likely use it as an opportunity to boost their goal difference in the group. This is likely to be such a lopsided game that it is hard to judge options in the correct score market. So we are going to skip past that in our Belgium v Panama betting tips and go straight to over 3.5 goals at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 14th, 2018 at 5:54 p.m.) as we think that this is going to be that easy for Belgians. Either way whatever the final scoreline in this, it is likely that Belgium will collect a clean sheet.
You are looking 4/7 odds at bet365 on Belgium to win to nil* (Betting Odds were taken on June 14th, 2018 at 5:54 p.m.). With Romelu Lukaku prowling around up front he is likely to bully the Panama defence pretty badly and he makes a great 13/5 odds option in the bet365 first goalscorer market. There is a high potential of both Belgium and England winning their opening matches in the group before they showdown in the final round of matches. So the Belgians will want to run up a comfortable goal difference ahead of that game because it could afford them the chance to rest players against the Three Lions. Belgium are a team in form as they have won eight of their last 10 games since the end of August 2017, drawing the other two. They have conceded just the one goal in their last five games and on top of that, they have scored at least three goals in three of their last four fixtures.
Belgium have pummelled the likes of Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica and Egypt recently and so it is hard to see how Panama are going to withstand the onslaught that the Europeans are going to launch at them. Panama got through their World Cup qualification group by the skin of their teeth and they did it with a negative goal difference as well. Panama have scored just one goal in their last five fixtures which included a heavy 6-0 loss against Switzerland back at the end of March. Panama have lost four of their last seven games, winning just the one. They are not likely to get on the scoresheet in this one and it is even harder to imagine that their defence is going to keep the Belgians at bay for very long in the fixture and therefore a Belgium/Belgium halftime/full-time option is 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 14th, 2018 at 5:54 p.m.) which makes for a solid option in our Belgium v Panama betting tips.
