Senegal: No Sadio Mane

After saying they’ll do whatever it takes for Sadio Mane to be available, even witchcraft, Senegal’s medical staff already ruled him out due to a leg injury. A two-time African Player of the Year, Mane was set to participate in his second WC.

Of course, they’ll miss him, but we’re still talking about the African Cup champions and the team that eliminated Mohamed Salah and Egypt during the qualifiers. Their roster includes other stars such as Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, Idrissa Gueye, Boulaye Dia and Famara Diedhiou. In fact, Diedhiou finished as the team’s top scorer in the qualifiers with four goals. Mane scored three.

The Lions of Teranga only lost one of their last eight games in all competitions, making them a very tempting online gambling underdog, especially at +525. Most recently, they drew 1-1 to Iran.

Finally, this will be Senegal’s third WC. Overall, they’re 3-3-2. In 2002, they became only the second African team to reach the Quarterfinals. In 2018, they couldn’t make it out of the Group Stage.

Netherlands: Beyond Group A

Besides being the favorite to win Group A, Netherlands is among the betting online favorites to dethrone France in Qatar. The Flying Dutchmen are offering a +1200 price, meaning you could turn a $100 wager into a $1300 payout.

Do they really have a chance? Yes, they do. We’re talking about one of the most balanced teams in the tournament. Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs De Ligt are two of the best centre-backs in the world. Frenkie de Jong is one of the best midfielders in the world. Finally, Memphis Depay is eager to prove his worth. We all know he’s a great striker, but he hasn’t played much in Barcelona.

As if that wasn’t enough, Louis Van Gaal, one of the best head coaches in the WC, will be leading them. He led them to a 7-2-1 record in the qualifiers, with 33 goals for and eight against. Only England and Germany scored more goals than them with 39 and 36. I’m telling you; this is a new version of the Clockwork Orange.

Senegal vs Netherlands Picks & Prediction

  • Is it Worth betting on the Moneyline?

Totally. Senegal is offering a +525 price, which means you could win $525 per every $100 wagered on them. Let’s not forget that they already pulled off a huge upset in 2002, defeating France 1-0 in the first game of the tournament. Yes, we’re talking about a totally different team, but the mentality is the same.

As for the Flying Dutchmen, they’re offering a -170 price. Considering they’ve 15 straight games without losing, that’s a great, low-risk deal.

  • Is it Worth betting ATS?

Not really. Even with Sadio Mane out, Senegal (+1 -125) will put up a good fight, but not enough to pull off the upset. In other words, Netherlands (-1 +105) will suffer a bit to get a close victory.

  • Is it Worth betting on the Totals?

Yes, in fact, I would say this is the best option to include in your soccer picks. I’m talking about the over 2½ at +120. As mentioned before, Netherlands averaged 3.3 goals per game during the qualifiers. As for Senegal, the Lions of Teranga averaged 2 goals per game during the qualifiers. I’m telling you, go with the over.

Score Prediction: Netherlands 2, Senegal 1
