Close One

Netherlands isn’t only the betting online favorite to win Group A, the Flying Dutchmen are also among the favorites to win the title. Nevertheless, they’ve had some trouble fulfilling that role in official tournaments. Most recently, they failed to win the European Championship. They started on the right foot by defeating Ukraine but suffered a bit more than expected and won only by one goal (3-2). I expect that to happen again on Monday, but 2-1, because Senegal is a much more physical team and one of the best when it comes to relying on the counterattack.

  • Picks: Netherlands by 1 (+250) / Both Teams to Score – Yes (+110)

Setting the Tone

Netherlands will suffer a bit more than expected, but the Flying Dutchmen won’t have to come from behind. They’ll score first, right before the 20-minute mark, just like they did in two of their last three games. First, they defeated Wales 3-2 in a game that they started winning thanks to Noa Lang, who scored in the 17th minute. Later, they defeated Poland 2-0; Cody Gakpo scored the opener in the 13th minute. In other words, we’re talking about a team that likes to take the reins right from the start.

  • Picks: Time of First Goal Brackets 11-20 Minutes (+450)

Next Man Up

The WC happens once every four years, so no team has time to cry over a player’s injury. In Senegal’s case, the Lions of Teranga cannot stay crying for Sadio Mane, who has already been ruled out due to a leg injury. The good news is that Famara Diedhiou is ready to step up, just like he did during the qualifiers. Believe it or not, Diedhiou scored more goals than Mane on the road to Qatar 2022; he scored four, while Bayern Munich’s striker scored three.

  • Picks: Anytime Goalscorer – Famara Diedhiou (+500)

By All Means

As mentioned before, I expect Netherlands to suffer a bit. They won’t get tired of attacking, but Senegal has one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Edouard Mendy, and one of the best center-backs in the world in Kalidou Koulibaly. The two of them will frustrate Netherlands’ plans more than once, which is why I believe we’re having more than eight corners in total.

  • Picks: 9-11 corners at +160
