Expert Betting Tips
I believe that Genk will finally earn a win here after a number of unbeaten runs without a victory. Additionally, while the away team has been a joke all season, I do not think they have a chance at all here, which is why a bet on the home team to win with Westerlo not finding the back of the net is a good option.
