Australia v Holland Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

Well, most will be expecting the Dutch to consolidate their amazing performance in their opening Group B match. This will be their easiest match of the group and after hammering Spain 5-1, then Holland should be on cruise control here. They are on a three match winning streak now, and despite heading into the World Cup with relatively low expectations thanks to some below par-performances during friendlies, they landed just about the biggest blow that they could have done. While this will be the first World Cup encounter between the two sides, interestingly it Australia who hold the head to head lead over Holland from three matches, having won one and drawn two.

Robin Van Persie, after that miraculous header against spain, is running at 4/5 in the anytime goalscorer market and that looks to be value. That is 10 goals in his last nine appearances for Holland now, and there is great support from Arjen Robben too, who has seven goals in his last seven games for the Dutch. Robben is trading at even money in the anytime goalscorer market. With their goals against Spain, they became the first Dutchmen to score in three World Cups.

That is eleven games unbeaten now in the group stage of the World Cup and the Dutch have won eight of those. So you don’t see them losing this one, especially with confidence being high after what they did to Spain. Now it is a matter of not taking their eye off the ball. Holland/Holland in the Half Time/Full Time market is at 3/4, while you could even stretch it to a Holland to win to nil wager at even money. They are better options than the match outrights, so can the Dutch land their first win over the Socceroos?

Australia did alright against Chile in their opener. They showed a lot of fight and determination and Tim Cahill grabbed a goal for them to put pressure on the South Americans at 2-1. However, Chile went on to land a 3-1 victory. Former Everton man Tim Cahill has been involved in 56% of all Australia’s World Cup goals, ever. That’s pretty influential. The Australians have won just two of their last 11 World Cup matches (L6 D3) so they are big underdogs for this one. They have gone up against European nations six times at the World Cup and have won just one of them. They’d be delighted with a repeat of the 0-0 draw they earned the last time they met Holland in a friendly back in 2009.
