World Cup Betting Preview: Spain v Netherlands

The 2010 finalists square off in the big World Cup game of the day (8pm KO, Live on BBC1), and Spain looks worth siding with at the 20/23 on offer with BetVictor to emerge victorious.

The pair have a perfectly even head-to-head record with four wins apiece and one draw, though Spain won the only previous World Cup clash 1-0 in the 2010 final.

However, as far as other stats are concerned ,Spain have the more solid look.

Vicente Del Bosque has only lost one of his 25 World Cup games as Spain head-coach, including qualifiers (W22 D2), and his side have won their last six World Cup games.

They have also kept a clean sheet in the last four of those, and that makes them look worth a small wager to win to nil at the 7/4 on offer with BetVictor.

David Villa is Spain’s top scorer at World Cup Finals with eight, and has been directly involved in seven of his country’s last nine goals in the tournament (6 goals, 1 assist).

That makes him look decent value at the 13/2 on offer with Paddy Power to net the opener, and he can also be backed at a tasty looking 5/2 with BetVictor and Hills to net anytime.
