Betting on the Eredivisie league is always enjoyable because it is such a competitive league. Almost all teams have an equal chance to win against each other, but Ajax and PSV are on another level these days. The majority of teams attempt to strengthen their defence and play an attacking football system — almost always in the classic Dutch 4-3-3 pattern, which translates into a lot of goals and fascinating games.
Football bets are available on all European football leagues on our online betting platform.
Masses of attacking talent to discover
The main attraction of Dutch football is thanks to the mass of talent that still remains undiscovered. Most Eredivisie clubs have excellent youth academies and a good method of screening for future big players, so even the minor clubs have players well above the level of small clubs from other countries. A good recent example is Groningen, who have spawned players the likes of Suarez and Van Dijk.
Each team in The Eredivisie has a better offence than defence, so prepare yourself for an abundance of goals, a ton of chances, and high spirits. The teams have several young midfielders and versatile forwards who put on impressive performances. The preferred bets in the Dutch league are matches with more than 2.5 goals or games where both teams score.
Betting on Dutch football
Internationally, the Netherlands is widely known as one of the best footballing nations. Ajax's and PSV's recent runs in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League aside prove that Dutch teams continue to achieve success in Europe. Make bets on the Champions League with bwin.
In terms of predictions on future league winners since the start of the decade, only three clubs, the Dutch “big three” Ajax, Feyenoord, and PSV Eindhoven, are in the picture. Betting on any one of these three (when they are not playing each other, of course) who wins and scores the most goals is definitely a good recommendation for punters.

Eerste Divisie and KNVB beker
The promotion and relegation system in the Eerste Divisie is complex. The first two placed teams are guaranteed a place in the Eredivisie, but the rest of the teams are divided into two pools: the ones with the best averages qualify for the semi-finals, while the others must go through the Round 1 matches. The winner of Round 1 will land a semi-final place against the 16th team in the Eredivisie.
The Dutch Cup is called the KNVB Beker. Place your sports bets on the Dutch Cup and take your chances on the winner landing a second domestic trophy in the same season.
