Best Tip: Both teams to score

Westerlo may feel optimistic ahead of this fixture and, funnily enough, so might Mechelen. The bookmakers don't think there's much between them and neither do we – there's no clear winner in this clash. So our tip looks to the both teams to score market, where there's far more reason to be certain. The form stats, past head-to-head (H2H) records and bookmakers odds below are all pointing towards both sides scoring, and that's the bet we'd recommend you go with.
