Fresh from their weekend victory in Germany, a reshuffled England side return to action against the Netherlands this evening.
Fuelled by the punting predilections of their swathes of over-optimistic supporters, the Three Lions’ odds to record consecutive non-competitive wins have been trimmed all the way into 3/4.
However, despite the general consensus, it’s the Dutch who the profit-hunters should be concerned with.
A steady sum of money can be spun just by backing the visitors at 15/4, but if you’re in the market for some serious cash, get on a 3-2 Netherlands win at 50/1.

In this article, the news.bwin tipping taskforce underlined the dangers of backing England to prevail in the immediate aftermath of a famous victory. It’s an affliction the Netherlands have exploited to their gain in the past, overcoming the Three Lions in the match that directly followed their last conquest of a world champion.
It was 3-2 to the away team the last time Roy Hodgson’s troops took the field, as it was on the previous occasion the Oranje played at Wembley, a fixture that took place in the final mid-season international break of the campaign ahead of a European Championships.
Similarly, each of the previous three matches to involve the underdogs ended with the spoils going to the away team via the scoreline we’re rooting for here. Five goals were distributed in identical fashion in three of the Netherlands’ last five friendlies, while a fourth in this sequence ended 3-4.
It’s rare there’s such a volume of statistical support in favour of a relatively seldom-seen correct score punt coming in, rendering a 3-2 win for the Netherlands well worthy of a quid or two.
