29views

The Eredivisie ranks as the eighth-best league in Europe. Therefore, the Dutch top-flight offers punters plenty of opportunities to find value throughout the season.

The League has over time produced some of the biggest names in world football including Johan Cruyff, Arjen Robben, Ronaldo Delima, Luis Suarez, to mention a few.

Similarly, Ajax is regarded as one of the best football clubs in Europe and with a very rich history. De Joden (The Jews) are also known for their fantastic youth set up which has supplied many European top clubs with world-class talents. In the 2018/19 season, the club went on a remarkable run in the UEFA Champions League, reaching as far as the semi-finals.

Ajax was in first place last season but could not be awarded the title as the season was declared void. However, the Netherlands giants are in pole position to win this season’s title. They lead PSV by 11 points with 7 matches to the end of the league season.

27 matches have been played in the Dutch league this season. Hence, some well-analysed bet options could help punters cash out big in the Eredivisie market.

Over 2.5 Goals In Matches Involving VVV Venlo

VVV currently sit in 16th position on the league table with 22 points.

The Yellow Black Army as they are popularly known has the worst defensive record in the Dutch top-flight this season. They have conceded a whopping 73 goals in 28 matches played- an average of 1.25 goals per game.

VVV Venlo has a terrible defensive record in the Eredivisie

The Venlo-based club began the season on a very good note. However, things turned for the worse this year when they lost seven games on the bounce leading to the sack of coach Hans De Koning.

New manager, Jos Luhukay has also lost his first two matches in charge of the club.

This season, 22 out of 28 matches involving VVV have ended with over 2.5 goals scored.

Punters interested in the Eredivisie market can take advantage of this fantastic bet option.

Goal/Goal (G/G/) In Matches Involving AZ Alkmaar

AZ is having an excellent season by all standards. The Cheeseheads are joint-second with PSV on the table could yet qualify for the Champions League qualification round next season.

The team from Zaanstreek has one of the most productive academies in Holland. At least six of the team’s regular line up are graduates from the academy.

Pascal Jansen’s young side was joint-top with Ajax last season until the league’s cancellation.

AZ Alkmaar’s expressive style of play leaves them vulnerable at the back

Jansen favours a more expansive style of play which makes them a high scoring team. However, this leaves them particularly vulnerable at the back.

The former league champions have recorded a tally of 20 goal/goal matches in this campaign.

Betting on both teams to score in matches involving AZ is one that holds great rewards for punters.

Ajax To Win First Half

This option is a must-have for punters with eyes for the Dutch league market.

Ajax is arguably the biggest team in the Netherlands based on its history and pedigree. They have continued to live up to the billing season after season.

De Godenzonen (sons of the Gods) stand heads and shoulders above every other club in the Eredivisie. They lead the chart offensively as the highest-scoring team and defensively as the least conceding side.

Ajax loves to close out games in the first half

The Amsterdam based club is famously known for promoting players from within. However, they have also got a good blend of experienced players to give the required balance.

Erik Ten Hag’s men go at every game full throttle from the start. Hence, they look to close out matches in the first half.

Ajax has won the first half of 17 out of 27 league games played this season.

Over 1.5 Goals In Matches Involving PSV

PSV Eindhoven is traditionally regarded as one of the “big three” in the western country.

Last season, the Boeren (Peasants) underperformed by their standards under former manager, Mark Van Bommel. However, Roger  Schimdt has been able to figure out his winning team as well as carve out an identity.

The nine-time league champions play with aggression with a high focus on intensive press. This style of play forces opposing defenders to turn over possession in delicate areas.

English-Nigerian forward, Noni Madueke is having an excellent season at the club with 7 goals.

PSV loves to score

96 per cent of league matches involving PSG have ended with at least two goals. Therefore, this option looks sure to deliver great returns to punters.

Cards Bet For Vitesse

Vitesse is one of the more stable clubs in Holland. They have made great strides this season. They currently sit in fourth position, just three points adrift of PSV and AZ Alkmaar in ‘second’ position.

The Vitas under Thomas Letsch play with three central defenders and combine a high press with a mid-block. They also defend by man-marking the opponent- this accounts for most of the yellow cards earned.

Vitesse is the most undisciplined team in the Eredivisie

In this campaign, Letsch’s men have accumulated 51 yellow cards- an average of 1.82 per game.

Smart punters can stake on over 3.5 yellow cards in matches involving Vitesse
