Tipster’s Angel

Both the teams are in great touch and have been playing good football lately in the Nations League. By considering the head to head record, Wales have an edge over Belgium. But when we look at the current team and the players’ form, Belgium are way more superior that Wales in all aspects.

Tip: Belgium -1.25 @ 1.72

They have also covered the spread of -1.25 in the last five qualifier matches that they played last season. With the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens, Kevin De Bruyne, Belgium can pose a good attacking threat. So, it is more likely that Belgium will cover the spread of -1.25 at 1.72 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.

Tip: Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.72
