Netherlands vs Mexico Betting Preview & Picks
Netherlands sort of shocked the world after they beat Spain in their opening group match with impressive 5 goals scored (5:1). Mexico, on the other hand, showed that they have some balls after team tied with Brazil (0:0) in group match and took second place in their group because of less goals scored. Considering what I just wrote, this should be one of the most interesting and entertaining games out there.
It wouldn’t be appropriate to say that this is the year of Oranje as of yet. To be fair, they did play in the world cup final in South Africa too, where they lost to Spain. Well, they definitely got revenge this year and the team looks quite good, especially after they beat Chile 2:0 to finish first in the group stage.
Many consider Netherlands to be the most balanced team, as they don’t have any superstars like Messi or Ronaldo, but a squad full of very solid players and well… Arjen Robben who looks great in this competition so far and has scored 3 goals for the ”Neds”. Striker Robin Van Persie has done the same and together they have brought the team to quarterfinals, where they now face a really solid team – Mexico.
It’s not a secret that Holland is considered as favorites in this matchup, simply due to the fact that their team is more balanced and squad filled with more experienced players from higher quality leagues. Sports betting experts offer odds of 2.10 (+110) for Netherlands to win this game.

It’s really hard to understand whether Mexico performed amazingly well in their group stage or did Brazil actually performed poorly. I’d say that the truth hides somewhere in the middle, but Mexico showed some solid soccer for sure.
They scored 4 goals in the group stage, but additional 2 taken away due to mistakes of referees in their game against Cameroon. In their last game, they left no options to Croatia that is a rather solid team.
It’s also quite interesting to look at statistics – Mexico and Netherlands have met 4 times in history of the World Cup and Mexico have never won. They do have 1 draw and 3 losses. Seeing how Netherlands played in their group matches, it will be really hard for Mexicans to turn this streak to an end.
Bookmakers also consider this team to be pretty big underdogs and value their chances at 3.80 (+280).

This game isn’t simply a quarterfinal, it’s much more than that due to a very unexpected pairing coming into quarterfinals in a form of CostaRica vs Greece matchup. Winner of this game will get to face winners of that one in quarterfinals. If Netherlands play their best in the next 2 games, they are favorites to reach semi-finals, where they will likely face either Argentina or Belgium.
I’m picking Netherlands to win this game at 2.10 (+110) at Bovada. This seems like a fairly good valuebet, seeing just how stable have Oranje been during this World Cup.
