World Cup Qualifiers Europe Saturday October 7th

Bosnia & Herzegovina vs. Belgium
Belgium are sitting 1st in the standings with 22 points earned in 8 round being 8 points clear at the top of Group H. They are unbeaten so far in their World Cup Qualifiers campaign and they will try to keep it that way also in the last two rounds of fixtures. Bosnia are sitting 2nd in the standings with 14 points but Greece are breathing down their necks in 3rd place being just one point behind them. If they want to secure the 2nd place and a playoff spot, Bosnia should win this match but it will be really tough to gain the three points against one of the biggest European teams Belgium. Belgium destroyed Bosnia in the reverse match winning 4-0 on their turf and they enter this match as favourites being priced at 2.55 with Bet365. Both teams have huge attacking firepower so we should expect a goal-fest. We should keep in mind that Belgium have a great defense conceding just three goals in 8 matches so far but given the fact that they are already qualified from the 1st place, they might leave gaps in their defense. The smart thing to do is to skip the winner market and bet on the goals market. Best pick for the match: Over 2.5 goals at 1.85 with Bet365.

Cyprus vs. Greece
The last three meetings between Greece and Cyprus have been won by Greece. Cyprus helped their neighbors Greece to continue their playoff spot battle by beating Bosnia last month in a 5 goals thriller game. Greece are winless in their last six fixtures including a friendly game against Belarus, but they still have chances to secure a 2nd place finish given the fact that their rivals Bosnia have to face Belgium on Saturday. Greece managed to win their last 4 head-to-heads against Cyprus including the reverse match from this qualifying campaign 2-0 with goals from Kostas Mitroglou and Petros Mandalos. Best pick for the match: Greece to win with -1 AH at 2.0 with Unibet.

Belarus vs. Netherlands
The Netherlands are sitting 3rd in Group A just three points behind 2nd place Sweden and if they will win their last two group stage fixtures they will finish 2nd and qualify for the playoffs. This match should go in one direction with the away team dominating the game from the start and returning home with the three points. Belarus are bottom of the group with 5 points earned so far having the worst attack in the group with just 4 goals scored in the process. The reverse match saw a comfortable 4-1 home win and we expect the Netherlands to easily cover the -1.5 AH. An easy win should give them a boost of confidence ahead of their clash against Sweden. Best pick for the match: The Netherlands to win with -1.5 AH (Asian Handicap) at 1.8 with Betfair.

Bulgaria vs. France
France are amongst the favourites to win the World Cup in Russia next year but they need to secure their top sport if they want to automatically qualify from Group A. This match is a must-win for the away side but they will have a very tough test on Saturday against a stubborn Bulgarian side. France were held to a goalless draw last round by Luxembourg with this result being one of the massive surprises in the football history. Bulgaria are a fortress when playing on their turf having won all their 4 home matches, beating Sweden and the Netherlands and scoring 10 goals in the process. We are not sure if France will cover the 1.5 AH but we expect them to bounce back and win this match. Best pick for the match: France to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.7 with Coral.
