Belgium totally deserves to come in as the favorite for Wednesday’s clash, but Canada won’t be easy prey. The North Americans have a couple of speedsters in Jonathan David and Cyle Larin, who are enough for them to do some damage even if they have to rely on the counter-attack. As for Belgium, the Red Devils only scored two or more goals in one of their last seven matches in all competitions.

Three is Calling
If Belgium ends up winning 2-1, that means the exact total goals would be three goals, right? Guess what? Last week, Belgium faced Egypt in its last preparation match and lost 2-1 – three goals in total. Also last week, Canada faced Japan in another friendly match and won … 2-1 — three goals in total. Number three is calling. Maybe you should answer!
- Picks: Exact total goals – Three (+300) / Belgium by 1 (+250)
Next Man Up
Listen carefully: Romelu Lukaku is out of the game due to an injury. That being said, Michy Batshuayi is expected to take his place in the starting lineup. This season, Batshuayi has played 13 games for Fenerbahce, in which he has scored eight goals. Not bad. He’s offering a +140 price in the sportsbook to score at any time.
You know who else is a good option? Kevin De Bruyne. Yes, he’s best known for making one assist after another, but he’ll be the one in charge of penalties and free kicks. Plus, he’s offering a +200 price in the sportsbook, which means you could win $200 per every $100 wagered on him.
As for Canada, I like Jonathan David, who’s used to facing world-class players as he plays for Lille in Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League. Two seasons ago, he scored 13 goals in Ligue 1. Last season, he scored 19 goals in Ligue 1 and UCL. This season, he has scored nine goals in 15 Ligue 1 games.
- Picks: Any Time Scorer – Michy Batshuayi (+110), Kevin De Bruyne (+200) and Jonathan David (+300)
