Betting Tips

We think that Netherlands can put the game away without it having a risk of going into extra time or a shootout. With players like Sneijder, Robben and van Persie, it is going to be difficult to keep these guys off of the scoresheet. That said we have seen Mexico play a great defensive game against Brazil so that tells us a few things that this game will probably be under 2.5 goals and that Mexico would be more inclined to play very defensively against one of the strongest attacking teams in the tournament so far to shut them down where they can give themselves a coin toss chance at a golden goal or perhaps take things to the shootout. The bet we are the most comfortable with is the under 2.5 goals with odds of 7/10 while is not the best payout, these 2 teams have defense written all over it. Well at least that is what we expect Mexico to do is weather the storm. If the Dutch can score early then this game might turn into a goalfest as Mexico would have to open up their offense.

Prop Bets Netherlands vs Mexico

Prop bets are certainly more interesting to bet on than just who will win or if there will be a draw. If you think you can pick the exact score then you got some interesting odds to choose from:
  • 2-1 Netherlands win 8/1 odds
  • 2-0 Netherlands win 17/2 odds
  • 1-1 draw 5/1 odds
For goal scorer odds, wait until the starting lineups are announced. So far these odds are:
  • Robin van Persie goal 6/5 odds
  • Arjen Robben goal 7/4 odds
  • Oribe Peralta goal 9/4 odds
  • Javier Hernandez goal 11/4 odds
Dos Santos for Mexico hasn't played well or scored much and we expect Peralta and Hernandez to continue to start so maybe keep in mind some of these players might be more time in the first half. Hard to imagine van Persie not being able to score.
