The "dark horses" of the competition, Belgium, face lowly ranked Algeria in the first Group H game of the World Cup. They're no longer darbk horses though, as the approach to this tournament has seen them backed more and more and they are too short to be classed as outsiders. Algeria are no pushovers though, so can Belgium get off to a start as strong as Columbia, Germany or Holland?
I expect them to win this game comfortably, and to be able to get 1.79 on -1.00 Asian Handicap is a great position. They are likely to keep a clean sheet with the strength they have at the back, and theyhave creativity and power up front to create plenty of chances. Being the opening game though, I'm sure they'd be happy with ANY win, providing they get all three points, so instead of going -1.25 or -1.5, -1.00 provides a bit of cover that means 3 points for Belgium means the worst #teamterry members can get is a push
