Football Betting Tips for Belgian First Division A Season 2022/23

The top teams in the league tend to be Club Brugge and Anderlecht, while the sides that we feel will struggle are Beerschot and Leuven. All four teams tend to feature quite prominently in our First Division A betting tips, with their fortunes at the top and bottom of the table tending to prove very popular in our Belgian football betting tips.

When it comes to top scorers, you will generally be looking at a player that scores around 20 goals. Genk’s striker Paul Onuachu bucked this trend last season by smashing in 33 goals, but those behind him scored around 20 goals apiece.

Interestingly, Club Brugge finished top of the regular season with just 26 goals conceded. Antwerp were second having shipped a sizable 48 goals. The disparity between the sides in what they score and concede is quite large, with a large number of goals scored across the season. Perhaps wagering on both teams scoring in their matches is the way to go, while many will like the match winner and over/under market when it comes to their betting tips.

Previous Season Recap

The 2020/21 season of the Belgian First Division saw Club Brugge romp to victory, with the competition in this league something that can help to ensure that First Division A predictions provide a lot of value, especially if you are betting on the outright winner in your Belgian First Division A betting tips.

Club Brugge only dropped points on six occasions across the season, with four draws and six losses coming alongside 24 wins, the most in the league by a long way. Indeed, the 16 points they picked up saw them secure top spot with time to spare, and it marked Club Brugge as the side to beat for the following season, with Club Brugge then topping the Championship round despite only winning one game.

Away from the top, Royal Excel Mouscron (31 points), Waasland-Beveren (31) and Cercle Brugge (36) were the sides that struggled most, with the sides only amassing 26 wins between them in 102 games.

Royal Excel Mouscron were relegated at the end of the regular season, with Waasland-Beveren also relegated through the relegation play-off, with Seraing winning 6-3 on aggregate in their two-legged relegation playoff.

This season, the Belgian First Division A predictions will likely be split when it comes to both the sides at the top and the bottom. Indeed, the fortunes of the teams at the top means things are always exceptionally tight, with a number of sides proving a good bet in your Belgian First Division A betting tips, while the relegation scrap will also see a very tense fight to the end.

Notable transfers

Unfortunately for Club Brugge and many that enjoy backing Belgian First Division A predictions, Odilon Kossounou left the club to join Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. A fee of around £21 is good business for Club Brugge, but they will now have to rebuild following the loss of the talented 21-year-old Ivory Coast star.

One player that has really excited fans is Ivory Coast star Christian Kouame. The forward has been able to net nine goals in his 20 appearances for Anderlecht after originally struggling with Fiorentina. However, the attacking-star looks to be flourishing in Belgium, with many Belgian First Division A predictions and Belgian First Division A betting tips backing him to score frequently.

Which Teams are Favourites to Win Belgian First Division A 2022/23

As with any competition, there are always the favourites to win, with the outright winner betting market usually very popular with both new and experienced bettors, meaning that First Division A predictions are the first stop for many punters. This market provides novice bettors with a very simple proposition – back the team that you think will win the league. For more experienced bettors, there is the chance to back teams at long odds, especially if you feel that the conventional favourites aren’t actually going to come good this time around or you have found Belgian First Division A predictions that have backed an underdog

Club Brugge

Club Brugge may not be the most decorated team in Belgian First Division A history, but they have been outstanding in recent years as they continue to close the gap between themselves and the top team, Anderlecht. After defending their title across the 2019/20 and 2020/21 season, Club Brugge look like the choice in most Belgian First Division A predictions when it comes to winning the title again, with few truly giving their competition much of a chance of stopping them from making it three triumphs in a row.

Fans of the side will be looking forward to seeing new signings Stanley Nsoki, Noa Lang and Eduard Sobol in action, with Brugge’s attack and defence boasting some able reinforcements.


Anderlecht are the old school big boys of Belgium’s top league, with the side boasting a massive 34 titles across their history, meaning that they have historically been the favourite team to bet on in all Belgian First Division A predictions. No other side has come close to them when it comes to their triumphs, with Club Brugge currently boasting half (17 titles) the victories Anderlecht have.

However, the last time they won the title was back in the 2016/17 season, and they have had to watch the opposition dominate since then.

Big transfers for the current season come in the form of Kristoffer Olsson, Benito Raman and Sergio Gomez, with the trio looking to add a little more bite to an Anderlecht side that have been all bark of late.


Over the last 20 years or so, Genk have established themselves as something of a force in the league, but this usually only occurs when all of the pieces of the puzzle come together. Indeed, all the pieces did come together when they won their title in the 2018/19 season, seeing the side win their first title since the 2010/11 season. However, going up against powerhouse teams and favourites like Club Brugge and Anderlecht, Genk knows that they need a near perfect season if they are to really challenge the two stalwarts of the Belgian first league and crown themselves as the league winners.


With three runners-up medals to their names, Gent are a side that comes in as real underdogs when it comes to winning the league title. A solitary win in the 2014/15 season comprises their only triumph to date, but Gent have always seemed to be on the cusp of toppling the so-called big boys, which they could do if everything goes right for them.

Odds of the Gent squad winning the league will usually be fairly long in comparison to Club Brugge and Anderlecht’s odds, but, if you can pull a rabbit out of the hat when it comes choosing the winner of the Belgian league, your bet will likely bring a sizeable reward.

Which Teams are in Danger of Relegation?

At the time of writing, Beerschot (16 points), RFC Seraing (23 points) and Zulte Waregem (29 points) make up the bottom three. The gap between each of the three, along with the fact that there are only four games left in the regular season, mean that Zulte Waregem will feel safe due to their six-point lead over RFC Seraing in the relegation playoff spot.

Seraing meanwhile have a seven-point lead over Beerschot at the bottom, and this means they are very likely to have to battle for their lives in Belgium’s top league in the relegation playoffs.

This means that Beerschot are the side most likely to get automatically relegated. This comes after a super campaign in which Beerschot finished in ninth in the 2020/21 season and is a huge disappointment for the side.

While Beerschot can technically still escape automatic relegation, it seems very unlikely now, with most if not all Belgian First Division A betting tips backing Beerschot to go down.

First Division A players to keep an eye on this season

There are a number of very impressive players that will take to the field for the sides across the season and will feature prominently in many Belgian First Division A betting tips. Our tipsters like the look of Paul Onuachu after his supreme 33 goals in the 2020/21 season for Genk. He is our pick to be the top scorer across the season then. However, there has been considerable interest from teams outside of Belgium for the star forward, and it will be interesting to see whether or not Genk have the resolve to hold onto their striker.

We also like the look of former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. The ‘keeper comes with an exceptional amount of experience and will be looking to lead Club Brugge forward. One that many will back for the golden glove, Mignolet may have a mistake or two in him, but he is also very capable of moments of brilliance between the sticks.
