Uruguay Holland Betting – Dutch Masters Reach Final, Knock Out Plucky Uruguay

Posted by Todd Shale on 7/5/2010 2:33:13 PM

Online betting players have watched Holland underachieve at the World Cup for so long, but the Netherlands will get another chance to go for their first World Cup when they face Uruguay in the semifinals, and led by their flying midfielder, the Dutch will roll into the final.

  • What: World Cup Betting
  • When: Tuesday, July 6th, 2:30 PM ET
  • Where: Green Point Stadium, Cape Town
  • Key Stats: Each side has won one of their two meetings

The Storyline

Uruguay is coming off a wild 1-1 match against Ghana, winning 4-2 on penalties to reach the semifinals of the World Cup for the first time since 1954, and they’re aiming to add to their two wins in this tournament. The Dutch have yet to win the World Cup, but they’ve already got experience against South American teams, having put out Brazil 2-1 in the quarterfinals.

Who Has The Edge On Offense: Uruguay Holland Betting

Luis Suarez and Diego Forlan have been arguably the best strike duo in the competition so far, and Forlan was at the heart of most of Uruguay’s moves against Ghana. His free kick to knot the score at one was one of the goals of the tournament, but he may have a bigger load to carry in this match as Suarez is suspended for his late handball against Ghana. That means that Holland will be able to focus more on Forlan.

Wesley Sniejder is gaining steam as the best player in the tournament after his two-goal performance against Brazil, but he’s been at his best when Arjen Robben is healthy and on the win for the Oranje. Robben’s pace and trickery tore Brazil apart in the second half of their quarterfinal match, which created room for Sneijder to pull the strings in midfield. Robin van Persie, who has scored just once, will be fit after suffering an arm injury against the Brazilians.

Edge: Holland

Who Has The Edge In Defense: Uruguay Holland Betting

Uruguay will be aiming to get captain and midfielder Diego Lugano healthy from a knee injury for this match, along with defender Diego Godin, who missed the Ghana match. They didn’t look all that impressive defensively against Ghana, and they needed some luck as Asamoah Gyan missed his late penalty against Uruguay.

The Dutch looked like amateurs in the first 45 minutes against Brazil, and they failed to track any runs through the middle of the field. However, the second half was a different story and they frustrated the five-time champions for the rest of the match. They be missing midfielder Nigel De Jong for this match as he is suspended.

Edge: Draw

Notable Injuries – Uruguay Holland Betting

Lugano (knee) is the only major injury for Uruguay, while Suarez (suspension) is also out.

The Dutch should have a clean bill of health for this match, although Robben and Van Persie can get hurt at the drop of a dime.

Edge: Holland

Totals – Uruguay Holland Betting

The posted total is set at two, which is how many goals we think will be scored in total. However, we’d say it would go over the posted total because both teams like to play an attacking game, and when one team scores, one will have to chase the game, which leaves them exposed at the back.

Pick: Over 2

Uruguay Holland Betting Prediction & Outlook

Holland is a -165 favorite in this contest, while Uruguay comes in at +475, and a draw is rated at +260. These two have met just twice in their past, splitting the two meetings and scoring two goals apiece. Holland’s win over Brazil wasn’t really as big an upset as the media would have you believe: while Brazil was No.1, the Dutch are No.3 in FIFA rankings and haven’t lost in their last 24 matches. Forlan will do his best, but without Suarez in the lineup, he’s going to struggle to play set-up man as well as score. Holland has more weapons, and Sniejder will take advantage of Lugano, who will be less than 100% if he plays. Take the Oranje in your sports betting picks to make it the final two.

Bet World Cup: Holland -165
