Remember the total football, all attack, plenty of goals Netherlands? They are gone. Now they put Mark van Bommel and Nigel de Jong in the center of the midfield and do, well, the kinds of things that the two have made a reputation for. Meanwhile, Denmark brings Christian Eriksen, who you are obligated to love if you love football. It's a rule.
Lines: Netherlands, -1 (+115). Denmark, +1 (-135).
Odds: Netherlands, -165. Denmark, +425. Draw, +270
Over/Under: Over 2.5, +100. Under 2.5, -120.
It's tough to come up with a scenario in which the team with Robin van Persie and Klass-Jan Huntelaar don't win out. Also, the two tough-tackling Netherlands midfielders are actually a good tactic against Eriksen, and when Eriksen is slowed, Denmark slows. This one should go the way of the Netherlands, so throw money on them at -1, paying out +115. They will win, and even if it is by a goal, you get your money back, while the +115 is appetizing.
The high 2.5 over/under is tempting. To win on a two-goal game is something you should almost always jump at, and this is no different. Unless Dennis Rommedahl can turn back the clock and provide some support for Eriksen, the Danish playmaker will be isolated and Nicklas Bendtner won't see much of the ball. That allows the Netherlands' goal, maybe two to keep the under a good bet.
