Eredivisie tips and predictions
The Dutch Eredivisie is full of teams that have caused some problems for some of the gladiators of Europe in their time. With the likes of Ajax, Feyenoord, and PSV all taking part in this league, there’s a lot of great football that goes on. And where there’s great football, there are great betting markets, as identified here:
Top Eredivisie Betting Tips – Round 17
- AZ vs Willem II: Halftime/Fulltime – AZ/AZ @1.80 | 4/5
- Zwolle vs Twente: Total Goals – Over 2.5 Goals @2.20 | 6/5
- Sparta Rotterdam vs Vitesse: Both Teams to Score – No @2.05 | 21/20
- Fortuna Sittard vs Utrecht: Match Result – Utrecht to Win @1.80 | 4/5
- Heracles vs Groningen: Match Result – Draw @3.55 | 51/20
Match: AZ vs Willem II
Prediction: Halftime/Fulltime – AZ/AZ
Tipped Odds: @1.80 | 4/5
Tip Reasoning: Willem II has the worst recent form in the whole Eredivisie, while their opponents are enjoying the fruits of their unbeaten labor recently with twenty-six points, so far.
Match: Zwolle vs Twente
Prediction: Total Goals – Over 2.5 Goals
Tipped Odds: @2.20 | 6/5
Tip Reasoning: 60% of the ten most recent matches for Twente ended with more than three goals scored. It's safe to say that we expect a high-scoring match because Zwolle's injuries are going to leave them open to attack.
Match: Sparta Rotterdam vs Vitesse
Prediction: Both Teams to Score – No
Tipped Odds: @2.05 | 21/20
Tip Reasoning: We have seen a lot of clean sheets between Vitesse and Sparta Rotterdam recently with 80% of the last ten games between them ending that way. Considering Vitesse's top defense and Sparta Rotterdam's poor attacking performance, so far we expect a clean sheet again.
Match: Fortuna Sittard vs Utrecht
Prediction: Match Result – Utrecht to Win
Tipped Odds: @1.80 | 4/5
Tip Reasoning: Fortuna Sittard only managed to win a match against Utrecht once in the last ten games played, and their position in the table isn't optimal compared to their opponents.
Match: Heracles vs Groningen
Prediction: Match Result – Draw
Tipped Odds: @3.55 | 51/20
Tip Reasoning: There have been a lot of draws recently involving both teams in Eredivisie. Also, there have been draws in the recent matches they played against each other.
Some of the odds listed above are subject to change since the games and/or markets will not take place for several days or weeks. With that said, just check in at the mentioned site for more accurate odds when it comes around to making your bets.
Dutch Eredivisie outright markets
Besides the weekly Eredivisie games that take place, you will also find many different outright markets for this particular league. Outright markets are different from your regular pre-match markets as they often won’t be settled until the very end of the season, and the odds can be pretty decent for such markets. Just check out some of the best right here.
To win the league
At the end of the day, somebody has to win the league, and this is one of the most popular Eredivisie outright markets. The beauty of this league is that your choices of likely winners are much less than other leagues in Europe. In fact, it’s often a two-horse race between Ajax and PSV, but we are inclined to go for Ajax based on their team and their recent performances.
To qualify for the Champs League
In the Eredivisie League, there are just 2 teams that can qualify for the Champions League. That means that you have a relatively decent shot at picking a winner here, especially since the league is so heavily dominated by two teams – PSV and Ajax. Of course, by picking these teams you won’t get a great return, but they are pretty likely to qualify.
To qualify for Europa League
Since the Eredivisie League is based in Europe, there are also several spots open for teams to qualify for the Europa League. As it happens, any team that finishes between 3rd and 8th will have a shot to qualify, with teams finishing 3rd and 4th qualifying automatically. For this market, the value lies in the teams that are more likely to have to playoff for their position in the Europa League. Such teams include the likes of FC Utrecht, FC Groningen, and FC Twente, all of which are good shouts for this market.
Eredivisie League – alternative markets
If you are betting on the Eredivisie League from the UK, you may not know all that much about the teams that are playing. This is why it is quite easy to just stick to the individual games and outright markets, however, that’s not always where the value lies. In fact, the value can often be hidden in the alternative markets, as shown here.
Result/both teams to score
The both teams to score market is a bit of a fan favourite with UK punters, but you can take things a step further with this one. To get the win here, not only do both teams have to score a goal, but you must also pick the team that will win the match. Of course, for this bet to come true you need at least 3 goals to be scored in the game, so it's best to pick out teams that are very attacking.
Now and then, the standard moneyline markets don’t offer a great return, especially when a strong team goes up against a weaker one. That’s where this market can be particularly useful, as you effectively put a handicap on the outcome of the game, either in favour of the stronger team or for the underdogs. These are indicated by positive and negative symbols next to the odds, and usually, handicap betting is all to do with the number of goals scored.
Eredivisie League – where to bet
This is a decent league to bet on in terms of the coverage from major betting sites, so you don’t need to worry too much about being able to find Eredivisie betting markets. However, you do need to concern yourself with where to find the most competitive odds, streaming services, mobile betting, and bonuses. These are the kinds of features you can expect to find at the betting sites mentioned here:
- Paddy Power
At most of these sites, it is quite common to find a selection of more than 50 markets for a standard Eredivisie game. To add to that, you can watch many of the games from either the desktop or mobile site, which is a great positive. Of course, all of these sites have the required betting license to make them legal too.
FAQs – betting on the Eredivisie League
Can I build my own bet for this league?
This is actually dependent on whether your selected betting site has a ‘bet builder’ tool, which many of the leading sites do have. If it isn’t available at your chosen site, you can always request a market through the relative support channels.
Can I cash-out my wagers?
Yes, although there is no guarantee that a cash-out offer will be made for any of your bets. In order for a cash-out to be offered, your bet has to be looking likely to result in a win, which is when the site will offer the chance at an early profit.
How long must I wait for my winnings?
Upon making a winning Eredivisie bet, your winnings will usually be added to your real money balance immediately.
