Two football powerhouses collide at 2 p.m. ET on Friday in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup when Brazil and Belgium meet up. Brazil is favored on the money line at +110, meaning a $100 bet would return $110. Belgium is going off at +260 (risk $100 to win $260), while a draw in regulation pays off at +240. The Over-Under for total goals scored in this 2018 World Cup fixture is 2.5. Brazil is 9-4 to win the entire tournament, while Belgium is listed at 11-2 World Cup odds to win it all.
Sportsbooks list Brazil as a -180 favorite (risk $180 to win $100) to advance, with Belgium at +150 (risk $100 to win $150). In three-way betting on regulation only, Brazil is +105, Belgium is +270 and the draw is +240. The over-under for total goals scored in this 2018 World Cup match is 2.5.
Before placing any bet, you need to see who European football expert David Sumpter is picking. Sumpter is an applied mathematician and author of Soccermatics, the book that explains how math works inside the sport. Along with other experienced analysts, Sumpter developed the powerful Soccerbot model.
The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In nearly three seasons since its inception, the Soccerbot is up an incredible 1,800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds.
The Soccerbot has been rolling through the 2018 World Cup knockout stage. It correctly predicted draws in regulation for Spain-Russia (+280), Croatia-Denmark (+225) and England-Colombia (+215) and was all over Brazil and Belgium winning in regulation. Earlier, the model nailed draws for Argentina-Iceland (+385) and Brazil-Switzerland (+360) and predicted Iran upsetting Morocco at +275, just to name a few of its big calls. Anyone who has followed it is way, way up.
Now, the Soccerbot has digested the film, crunched the numbers and broken down every single player on Brazil and Belgium. We can tell you the model is leaning under 2.5 goals, but its much stronger pick is on the money line, which it's only sharing over at SportsLine.
The model has taken into account that both teams are unbeaten in Russia 2018.
Brazil advanced through Group E with a 2-0-1 mark that featured wins over Serbia and Costa Rica and a tie against Switzerland. The Brazilians then knocked out Mexico in a 2-0 decision in the Round of 16 to advance to the quarterfinals.
They'll be without star midfielder Casemiro due to suspension on Saturday, however, and will have their toughest test yet against a powerful Belgium squad that survived a valiant upset bid by Japan in the Round of 16 to remain undefeated.
Led by powerful scorers such has Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, Belgium has tallied 12 goals thus far in the World Cup 2018. Belgium has not lost a competitive international match since manager Roberto Martinez took over in August 2016 and is eyeing its second World Cup semifinal berth.
So which hungry nation wins Friday? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong Brazil-Belgium money-line pick, all from a European football expert whose powerful model is up 1,800 percent in less than three years.
