2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Belgium (0-0-0) vs. Canada (0-0-0)
Date: Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2022
Time: 2 p.m. ET
Venue: Ahmed bin Ali Stadium — Al Rayyan, Qatar
The 2022 FIFA World Cup begins in less than a week. One of the first matches of the tournament takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 23 between Belgium and Canada.
Belgium would love to open the tournament with a victory after finishing third at the 2018 World Cup. On the other hand, Canada is hungrier than ever as they're set to make their first tournament appearance in 36 years.
Can Belgium pick up where they left off four years ago with a tournament-opening victory? Or will the Canadians' World Cup return be too much for their opponents to handle?

Belgium vs Canada Prediction & Pick
While Canada's World Cup return should be celebrated, they're in over their heads this time around. Not only Belgium is the current -125 favorite to win Group F (Canada sits last at +1100), but also owns the ninth-best odds (+1700) to win the entire tournament.
With World Cup experience and skills being on on the favorite's side, I'm backing Belgium to win.

Belgium vs Canada Best Bet
Again, Canada has too much to prove to be trusted in this matchup. A 36-year World Cup absence is no joke and now the Canadians have to go up against the team that placed third in 2018. Until Canada can consistently hang with the big dogs, this is Belgium's game to lose.
