World Cup Betting Preview: Belgium v Algeria

Belgium are a top priced 4/11 with Paddy Power to win their opening game against Algeria today (5pm KO, Live on ITV1) and look worthy odds-on shots to do so.

Belgium are unbeaten in two previous internationals against Algeria, winning one and drawing one (both friendlies).

Algeria have also failed to score in their last five World Cup games, and I can’t see them doing so in this given that Belgium have one of the best goalkeepers in the tournament in Thibaut Courtois and solid defence headed by Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany.

That makes backing Belgium to win to nil look well worth a wager at a standout 13/10 with Betfred.

Romelu Lukaku spearheads the Belgium attack and makes plenty of appeal at the 4/1 on offer with Coral and Hills in the first goalscorer market given that he is as short as 5/2 elsewhere.

In the correct score market, I like the look of a 2-0 win for Belgium at odds of 13/2 with BetVictor.
