Netherlands vs France: best bet
- Pick: France to win and over 1.5 total goals
- Odds: +170
The Netherlands were took over by France 4-0 in their Euro opener back in March. In that gameplay the Dutch were without Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, and Cody Gakpo who are all also injured for this game as well.Ronald Koeman has improved the side, but these injuries are too much to overcome against one of the world’s best teams, especially without an option at goalkeeper.
Taking France to win 2.5 goals at +240 is enticing, but Didier Deschamps seldom values defensive solidity over an overwhelming attacking presence, and despite the lopsided scoreline last time out, it’s not enough of a boost in return to take the added risk.
Netherlands vs France prop bet
- Pick: Kylian Mbappe anytime goal scorer
- Odds: +135
Kylian Mbappe opened the year in white hot form, with 8 goals in his first 5 matches with PSG after returning from his brief standoff. It’s gone a bit quiet, without a goal in his last 4 including poor shooting performances against Stade Rennes and Clermont Foot, but we also know what Mbappe is capable of.
His 2 goal, one assist masterpiece against the Dutch back in March will have him chew at the bit for a chance to attacking this depleted Netherlands back line and get back to his scoring form.With the exceptional service provided by France’s best players like Antoine Griezmann,Theo Hernandez, Aurelien Tchouameni, Ousmane Dembele, and other world class players, plus Mbappe’s own electricity on the ball,France appear to be good value for a victory.
