The top two in Group H go head-to-head in Brussels on Saturday night and Belgium are expected to prove a cut above Greece in this crucial World Cup qualifier.
The Red Devils may have suffered a surprise quarter-final loss to Wales at Euro 2016 but they have recovered well and are scoring goals galore on the road to Russia 2018.
The first of our Belgium vs Greece betting tips is 19/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
A Look At Belgium’s Betting Odds
Belgium have an arsenal of attacking weapons to match any national team on the planet right now and a superb tally of 21 goals scored in four straight Group H victories backs up that view.
A 3-0 success in Cyprus got their campaign off to a flying start, Bosnia & Herzegovina were brushed aside 4-0, Gibraltar were handed a 6-0 thrashing and Estonia were on the wrong end of an 8-1 rout last time out.
Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has netted five times in those games, Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke hit a hat-trick versus Gibraltar, Chelsea star Eden Hazard has also been amongst the goals and Dries Mertens has transferred his hot form with Napoli to the international arena.
Greece will present a sterner test but Belgium are fancied at 29/10 to win by exactly two goals.
A Look At Greece’s Betting Odds
After a decent showing at the 2014 World Cup, Greece failed to qualify for Euro 2016 but hopes are high that they can make amends by booking a trip to Russia next year following an encouraging start to this campaign.
German coach Michael Skibbe steered his team to smooth victories against Gibraltar, Cyprus and Estonia before Greece showed great heart to snatch a share of the spoils at home to Bosnia & Herzegovina when Georgios Tzavelas equalised in the fifth minute of time added on.
That same team spirit which inspired outright glory at Euro 2004 appears to have returned and in Kostas Mitroglou they have a red-hot striker who has bagged 11 goals in his last 14 matches at club level for Benfica.
This may be too tough a test for Greece but 27/20 for both teams to score is a tempting price.
