Europe’s Group H proposed yet another great game for this Sunday. While Belgium’s game in Estonia is just a question about the number of goals we will see, we can choose to watch a derby for second place in the group : Greece vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina. The two teams are in direct competition for the playoff spot, and play the first episode of their clash in Greece.

FT Result: Greece 2.80 or 9/5 Draw 3.20 or 11/5 Bosnia & H. 2.80 or 9/5

Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.00 or 1/1 No 1.75 or 3/4
The home team is also a favorite of bookies and critics alike for this game. 8-1 goal difference, 9 points out of 9 in their first three games, and an overall good game is the arguments that most people use to characterize this Greek team.
It is worth mentioning that they’ve won these points against the weaker 3 teams of the group (Estonia, Cyprus, and Gibraltar) and that Bosnia and Belgium will prove to be highly different challenges, but the situation is looking good for the Greeks, both points-wise and morale-wise.
On the other hand, the ex-Yugoslavian team won their games against weaker opponents and suffered a heavy defeat in Belgium, 0-4.
Their main weapon in this group is the quality of their forwards, especially Edin Dzeko, who is the current top goalscorer in the Serie A.
An away win in Greece could transform them into favorites for second place, even with chances of finishing first, while a defeat could shatter their hopes of playing at yet another World Cup final tournament.
Greece vs Bosnia & Herzegovina Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we’re looking to take advantage of the fact that the game will be extremely tight.
Greece +1 is the safe bet of the day since we don’t believe the Greeks will lose, let alone concede many goals.
Under 2,5 or 3,5 goals (depending on your risk appetite) are also good ideas, while a “both teams to score” bet is great for those looking for higher odds. Goalscorer? Dzeko.
