Eredivisie Betting Tips
All information for your betting on the Eredivisie.
Presentation of Eredivisie
Eredivisie is the first division football championship in the Netherlands. Having seen many football legends like Johan Cruijff, Ruud Geels, Marco Van Basten, Romario, Dennis Bergkamp, Ronaldo, Edwin Van der Sar, Patrick Kluivert, Ruud Van Nistelrooy or more recently Klass-Jan Huntelaar and Luis Suarez, it is a fairly high level and is often the main pool of major European clubs in each transfer window. Holding 18 teams each season, it delivers the title for the Netherland champions, two places in the Champions League including a direct and two places in the Europa League. After the regular season, teams ranked fourth to seventh place also meet to get the second qualifying ticket to the Europa League.
The key stats of Eredivisie
Often neglected in football betting, the Eredivisie is yet one of the competitions on which to place a reliable prediction remains the easiest. Between the rains of goals and the draws that are rare, the odds are often easy to spot in pre-match. Why not enjoy it?
Avoid the draw
One of the markets to avoid on the Dutch football championship will undoubtedly be a draw. Last year, and it is a constant of these last seasons, less than one meeting out of four ended on a sharing of the points, where 44.5% of the duels hada victory at home, and 31.6% of outside. So turn instead to the pretty odds of the visiting teams in this competition.
Bet well on the Eredivisie
In addition to the low number of draws, the other statistic to take into account before Betting Eredivisie will be the dizzying number of goals, regardless of the meeting. In the previous season, for example, 2.88 projects were scored on average per meeting, one of the best ratios in Europe.
In the same spirit, a figure will be interesting for you bettors, that of the ratio of duels having concluded on +2.5 goals. In the last Dutch championship, 54.3% of the matches had validated the bet, and 34% had even ended on a +3.5 goals. Either one game out of three. So do not hesitate to take advantage of the beautiful odds offered by bookmakers.
A global trend that is also confirmed by two other datas, 71% of the oppositions had a goal of the visiting team last season, and 46% at least two goals of the team playing at home. More than ever, we will turn to Over 2.5 goals in our Eredivisie bets.
Last interesting stats, know finally that the scorers will not be underestimated, 15 men having exceeded the bar of 15 goals on the last two editions, and that the shocks between teams deliver rare surprises. Last year, in the six meetings between Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord Rotterdam, only one had seen the visiting team win. We therefore remain logical when forecasting the Dutch championship.
The forces involved for 2017-2018
After the Feyenoord Rotterdam became champions just last year, it's still the traditional PSV, Ajax and Rotterdam that are expected this season. AZ Alkmaar and Vitesse Arnhem will be the big underdogs.
Eindhoven for a 24th crown
Led by his trainer Philip Cocu, PSV Eindhoven's team left nothing to chance during the first half of the season. With men like Lozano, Locadia and Van Ginkel, the famous team from the south of the country has all the cards in their hands to regain their lost title last year in May.
Ajax, four years later?
The most successful club in the country with 33 trophies, Ajax Amsterdam seems to have lost the monopoly in recent seasons in the Netherlands. Unable to glean the title since the 2013-2014 season, the quadruple European champions will try to turn the tide this season with men like Onana, Schöne, Ziyech, Dolberg and Huntelaar in his squad.
Complicated for Feyenoord
The reigning Dutch champions, the Feyenoord Rotterdam players had a difficult first half of the season in Eredivisie. Between a catastrophic Champions League and incredible league challenges, Vilhena, Boëtius and other Berghuis were disappointed and far behind. Led by Giovanni Van Bronckhorst on the bench, the team of Rotterdam sees its title hopes far away.
