In the World Cup third-place match, Belgium defeated England, 2-0. Here’s a look at the betting results from Saturday.

Match #63: Belgium vs. England (Third Place Match)

Result: Belgium 2-0 England

Moneyline: Belgium +118
Spread: Belgium -0.5 (+118)
Total: Under 3 (-125)

Belgium took a very early lead on a Thomas Meunier goal and over bettors were feeling pretty good from the get-go. However, the pace really slowed down and England weren’t able to muster much the entire match. Eden Hazard put Belgium up, 2-0, late in the second half and that was it.

It was the lowest scoring third-place match since 1974 when Poland beat Brazil, 1-0.

There have now been 163 total goals during the World Cup. Before the tournament, the Over/Under was set at 159.5.

Entering the World Cup Final, here are the betting results throughout the tournament:

  • Favorites 34 wins (-2.07 units)
  • Underdogs 15 wins (+8.15 units)
  • Draws 14 (-11.10 units)
  • 29 Overs, 24 Unders, 10 Pushes
