Belgium vs Costa Rica Predictions
It’s difficult to predict anything but a Belgium win here and so we need to find some attractive odds for a selection to make our Belgium vs Costa Rica predictions worthwhile. A HT/FT bet is an option but we’re going to get the better odds and go with Belgium to win both halves. It may be that Martinez picks some of his fringe players to start and these will be eager to impress ahead of their first World Cup fixture. This betting tip means they have to win both halves, so at half-time the match effectively goes back to 0-0. Costa Rica didn’t put up much of a fight against England and we’re predicting the same again tonight.
The best odds for Belgium to win both halves are 8/5 with Ladbrokes where new customers sign-up here and get a £50 free bet.
The next selection we’re going for tonight was mentioned in the betting preview and we’re banking on Martinez making some changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s game. The first goalscorer tip is going to Batshuayi to score first. He played the second half in the 3-0 win against Egypt last week and might replace Lukaku from the start in tonight’s game. The best odds for Batshuayi to score first against Costa Rica tonight are 9/2 with bet365 and that’s the second of our Belgium vs Costa Rice predictions.
