Presentation of Eredivisie - Football
The Eredivisie is the Dutch top flight football league. Each season, the 18 top clubs in the country compete and the Dutch champion has been crowned since 1889. Considered a very good competition in Europe after the top 5, the Eredivisie sees its champion qualify for the Champions League group stage, and its runner-up get a ticket to the qualifiers. The third and fourth-placed clubs earn their places in the UEFA Europa Conference League, while the Cup winner earns a place in the Europa League. At the bottom of the table, the clubs finishing in the bottom two places are relegated to the Eerste Divisie, while the 16th-placed club plays a play-off round to avoid being relegaed. The stakes are so high that every season is a great opportunity to place bets on the Eredivisie. So get your bets in for 2022-2023!
Dutch Eredivisie Statistical Analysis
The Eredivisie has evolved over the last few years and is now considered as one of the best leagues in Europe. Not quite as good as leagues such as the English Premier League or La Liga, but one that produces exciting football. The recent success of Ajax and Feyenoord in European competitions has shown this to be the case. The Eredivisie has boosted the Netherlands to the 6th spot in the UEFA country coefficients, placing it above leagues such as the Portuguese Primeira Liga and the Scottish Premiership. With 402 goals scored from the 126 matches up until the World Cup break began in November, the Eredivsie’s average of 3.19 goals per match makes it one of the highest scoring of Europe’s top leagues – averaging more goals than higher-profile competitions such as the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1.
Goals are coming from everywhere, as currently 60% of the matches in the 2022/23 season up until the World Cup break had at least three goals in the game. A fact that may of course push you to try the "+2.5 goals" market, usually offered at nice odds on the best sports betting sites. Generally, they will more or less double your bet, so it would be a shame not to try. The "+3.5 goals" bet has been successful in 40% of the matches so far.
Another important statistic for a reliable Eredivisie prediction is the number of games that ended with a goal for each team. This season, the bet "Both teams score" has been a winner in 57% of the matches, which is an interesting ratio when you know the odds offered by the different sports betting sites. So don't forget to try your luck with Dutch football bets this year.
Secondly, you should also be aware that there are few surprises in the Dutch football league. The Eredivisie has a low amount of away wins with 36% last season. This has continued into the current season as only 34% of matches have resulted in away wins up until the World Cup break in November. Many of those are achieved by the top teams. 12 of the 18 clubs failed to win more than two away league games, with the top four alone accounting for 20 of the 43 total away wins so far as we approach the halfway point in the 2022/23 campaign.
Finally, if you like alternative predictions, note that the most common scoreline is still 1-0 (or 0-1) in the Eredivisie (16% of games this season, down from 19% of games last year), while 11% of matches so far in the 2022/23 season finish 1-1. The most prolific quarter of an hour is the last one (26.5% of goals scored this season, up from 20.5% of goals last season), and that there are many prolific scorers in the league (Five players with eight goals or more in 14 games so far this season). With this information, you are now ready for your predictions as we continue the Dutch top flight.
League positions upon the return of the season on January 6th
We look set to have a tight battle for the Eredivisie league crown this season as a number of teams find themselves in the hunt upon returning from the World Cup break. When the break began, current leaders Feyenoord held a slim three point lead ahead of Dutch giants Ajax and PSV who were deadlocked in second and third-place on 30 points each. Feyenoord will be hoping to regain their first league title since the 2016/17 season and put an end to current holders Ajax’s three year reign as league champions. AZ Alkmaar will also consider themselves possible contenders as the Cheeseheads sit in fourth-place with 29 points and still very much in the thick of things.
At the bottom of the table, Cambuur and Volendam have emerged as the early relegation favorites with both clubs losing 10 of their 14 matches so far in the 2022/23 season. Volendam’s six points puts them rock bottom of the table while Cambuur’s eight points has them trailing 16th-place Emmen by three and 15th-place Groningen by four points.
It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to see that Ajax are the current top-scoring team in the Eredivisie with 44 goals as de Godenzonen have finished as the league’s top scorers for the last five consecutive seasons. They look on pace to potentially eclipse the 98 goal mark that they scored last season as Ajax have averaged 3.14 goals scored per match so far this season, up from 2.88 in the 2021/22 season. Not far behind are PSV with 42 goals (currently averaging 3 goals per match), who look set for their highest scoring season in a number of years if they can continue at the same pace.
How to bet on Eredivisie matches?
Having analysed the numbers you need to know before betting on the Eredivisie football, let's now talk about the parameters you need to take into account in order to be successful in your Dutch football predictions. Firstly, it will be imperative to look at the form of the key players involved in the match you are betting on.
For example, if you want to bet on the Ajax-PSV match, and Daley Blind, Davy Klassen, Edson Alvarez and Dušan Tadić are absent, the odds on the 'N2' might be smarter to try than if all four stars had been on the pitch in Amsterdam. Same reasoning for other key players in the league, and even more so in games between two mid-table sides.
After that, it will be very important to understand what is really at stake in the match you are betting on. For example, a bet like "Over 2.5 goals" is less likely to be successful in a game at the bottom of the league than in a game between two top teams in the Eredivisie.
Finally, you should also compare the odds before making your Eredivisie prediction. As you know, every week many sports betting sites offer different odds for the same match. Whether you want to bet on Ajax, Alkmaar, PSV or Feyenoord, you will find variations in the odds that will directly influence your potential winnings.
For example, on a match like PSV-Feyenoord, bet365 may offer odds of 1.8 on a PSV win but Bwin only 1.75. This may not seem like a big deal at the time, but believe our sports betting specialists, by the end of the year the difference can be significant. So don't put this aside when thinking about your Eredivisie predictions.
How to bet on the Eredivisie league ranking?
As you can bet online on all Dutch football matches, you also have the opportunity to predict the Eredivisie ranking 2022-2023. For example, you can bet on the final winner of the Dutch championship, which teams will get their places in the European competitions or which teams will drop to the second division at the end of the season (Eerste Divisie).
In order to make such long-term predictions, there are of course a number of aspects to be taken into account, such as the real motivation of the clubs, the complete schedule of the Dutch league, or the analysis of each team in the country. A club that has good substitutes and promising players in its youth academy, for example, will be less likely to suffer from injuries or suspensions of its senior players. This can make the difference between two clubs of a similar level.

Three-time defending Dutch champions in 2018/2019, 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 (the 2019/2020 title was not awarded), the great Ajax Amsterdam should retain their crown at the end of this 2022/2023 Eredivisie season despite currently sitting second as the season returns from the World Cup break. In addition to being the league's highest scoring team, Ajax also boast the Eredivisie's best goal differential at +27. They will also see one of their main tital rivals significantly weakened as leading scorer and World Cup star Cody Gakpo will be making the switch from PSV to Liverpool at the end of the January transfer window.
