Winners: BEL vs. GRC

Winners: BEL vs. GRC

More good fortune yesterday. We’re halfway through the week in Vegas and there has been some skill, but as always, the winning has to do with luck. Here’s to hoping for more of the same today.

Let’s move forward.

Today, Belgium visits Greece. This is a match-up between the top two teams in the standing of Group H. Belgium leads the group have won six and tied one – that one tie being against Greece in Belgium. Outside of that one game, Belgium has dominated its opponents. Belgium has scored 33 and only allowed two. Greece’s defense has been almost as stellar, having only allowed three in seven games. However, its offense hasn’t been nearly as effective. Greece has scored 10 goals in group play. Clearly, these two teams are the class of the group.

Here’s how we’ll bet it.

  • Pick 1: Belgium -165 (Bet $16.50 to win $10.06)
  • Pick 2: Draw +275 (Bet $7.50 to win $20.62)

Belgium knows attacking, but its stout at the back. We bet Greece a couple days ago and it struggled to create scoring chances against Estonia at home. In my opinion, if Estonia had more skilled players, it should have beaten Greece. It had the better chances to score. I think Belgium will play better than its last match against Greece, even if it still ties. It doesn’t matter to me. I just want them to get at least a point.

Fingers crossed.
