Belgium And England Favourites In Group G As Panama Tipped For Nil Points

All eyes will be on England and Belgium in Group G of the World Cup as they come up against relative minnows Tunisia and Panama. It would take some effort from the supposed 'big guns' to not qualify and we look at where the value lies in the Group G betting odds...

Group G Betting Odds

It is Belgium who are 5/6 favourites to win the group and former Everton manager Roberto Martinez is charged with trying to get the best out of this 'Golden Generation' of players. Much is expected of a team that reached the last-eight of the World Cup four years ago and that failure was blamed on their manager at the time, Marc Wilmots. There can be no such excuses in Russia.

The Belgians enjoy a kind start to the tournament as they will expect to have six points on the board before they meet England in their final group game.

England are 6/5 to win the group and Gareth Southgate's men have been quietly raising expectations with some decent showings in recent times. However, the Three Lions often melt in the pressure cooker environment of major tournaments, winning just one game during their past two appearances at World Cup finals in 2010 and 2014, and their skinny odds make little appeal.

Neither Belgium nor England fill us with confidence at the prices and Tunisia will be waiting to take advantage of any slip ups from the group's 'big two'. The Tunisians are appearing at World Cup finals for the first time since 2006 and they have no great pedigree to call upon as they have never gone beyond the group stage before, winning just one game in their four appearances at finals.

However, prior to their friendly match with Spain, Tunisia were unbeaten in nine internationals since Nahib Maaloul returned as head coach in April 2017 and they are not a team to be underestimated. Tunisia are 5/1 to qualify with Paddy Power and they will be awaiting another 'Peak England' performance...

Panama are the group's minnows as they gear up for their World Cup debut and they are 4/6 to finish bottom. They have been in dreadful form going into this tournament, failing to score in four of their last five internationals, including a 6-0 defeat at the hands of the usually reserved Switzerland in March, and they qualified for these finals thanks to the ineptitude of USA.

Panama's away record during World Cup qualification was woeful - won two, drew two, lost four, including a return of four goals scored - and that was despite taking on footballing luminaries like Haiti, USA, Honduras and Trinidad and Tobago. The 2/1 for Panama to finish Group G with 0 points (Ladbrokes) looks too good to ignore.
