Belgium Americans in particular will be seeking out bookies as their team is so far red hot in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.  For the US-based bookmakers, it is prudent to know where the largest concentration of Belgians live.  This is true of all nationalities during any World Cup tournament. 

  • Wisconsin: 57,808 (out of 5,363,675 = 1.08%)
  • Michigan: 53,135 (out of 9,938,444 = 0.53%)
  • Illinois: 34,208 (out of 12,419,293 = 0.28%)
  • California: 26,820
  • Minnesota: 15,627 (out of 4,919,479 = 0.32%)
  • Florida: 14,751
  • New York: 12,034
  • Indiana: 11,918
  • Texas: 10,595
  • Ohio: 9,651

Wisconsin has the United States's largest Belgian American settlement, located in portions of Brown, Kewaunee and Door counties adjacent to Green Bay.

Keep in mind that, when using a Pay Per Head provider, reports can be generated on specific player betting activity.  How many wagers are being placed on games or futures featuring the Belgian team. 

Another helpful tip: Know the common last names of those with Belgian ancestry.  A list of the top 100 appears below.  Keep in mind, it's not all-inclusive.
