World Cup Group Stage Odds & Best Bets: Belgium vs Morocco

(CTN News) – In the second matchup stage of Group F of the 2022 World Cup, Belgium will face Morocco at 8 a.m. Eastern Time. Taking place in Al Khor, Qatar, kickoff is scheduled for Al Thumama Stadium.

In their opener, Belgium beat an accomplished Canada side 1-0, while Morocco drew Croatia, a favorite to advance.

After missing the first World Cup match, injured star striker Romelu Lukaku (ankle) may be able to play in Belgium’s second match.

It may be difficult for Hakim Ziyech and company to advance past the group stage. However, they will at least hope to win their first World Cup game since 1998.

In spite of Belgium’s star power, Regragui’s young, but fiery national team will offer World Cup Group F bettors plenty of betting opportunities.

Here are the top World Cup predictions for Belgium vs Morocco.

Moroccans vs Belgians odds for 2022 World Cup

  • Three-way handicap: Belgium (+100), Draw (+225), Morocco (+310).

  • Belgian (-250) | Moroccan (+180) Draw No Bet

  • The over/under for goals is as follows: Over 2.5 (115) | Under 2.5 (165).

  • If both teams score, yes (+100) | If not, no (-135)

Bet MGM Sportsbook has Belgium vs Morocco odds as of Saturday, Nov. 26.

In theory, Morocco should have presented the Red Devils with a sneaky challenge. The ability of the team to test Belgium may depend on the availability of fullback Achraf Hakimi (left side) and right back Noussair Mazraoui (hip), both questionable as of Saturday night.

It is also expected that the odds on Over 2.5 and Both Teams to Score will immediately lose value if Lukaku plays. Before we get a clear read, I would place a bet on each.

Betting tips for Belgium vs Morocco 2022 World Cup

  • In the UEFA Nations League competition, Belgium has lost only two games in 2022 heading into the World Cup.

  • During the World Cup Qualifiers, Belgium won six of eight matches while averaging 3.13 goals per game.

  • During CAF qualifying, Morocco won 6-0, scoring 20 goals and allowing only one.

  • When other teams are adjusting to sweltering temperatures, Morocco’s subtropical climate should allow them at least to maintain competitiveness during the group stage.

Prediction for Belgium vs Morocco 2022 World Cup

The Belgians defeated Morocco 2-1

During an interview, Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said that he thought his team’s chances of winning the World Cup were in 2018. He also questioned Belgium’s age and chances against global competition.

As long as Lukaku is in the XI, the Red Devils should be able to defeat Morocco and qualify for the knockout stages.

A full-strength Belgian team is capable of competing with the most talented teams in the world. Morocco’s injury-riddled back line and weak points in midfield may prove too much for the No. 2-ranked FIFA team to overcome.

De Bruyne’s midfield leadership and world-class passing should help the Belgians. You can bet on the Manchester City dynamo logging at least one point.

Betting on Belgium vs Morocco 2022 World Cup

Combined with over 2.5 goals, Bet MGM’s curated One Game Parlay tool has uninspired (+138) odds. Therefore, I will wager on them separately.

Despite Lukach’s absence, Belgium’s firepower should shine through. The team has enough depth on attack to have someone eventually score one.

Morocco, who scored 20 goals in CAF qualifying action, should surprise bettors with similar gusto as Canada did against Belgium.
