Euro 2012 Betting Tips: Who Will Win Netherlands vs. Denmark Match?

Soccer Betting Tips for Euro 2012: Uneasy Defenses Lead To Five Goal Affair: The “Group of Death” in Group B is set to be contest starting on Saturday afternoon, and here at TSS, we are taking a look at the Euro 2012 odds and lines for this match and making our Netherlands vs. Denmark match picks and predictions for what could be quite the entertaining fixture.

The one thing that we know we are going to see is a heck of a lot of offense. The Danes are surprisingly ranked No. 9 in the FIFA World Rankings right now, and a lot of it is because they just keep finding ways to put the ball in the back of the net. Though there isn’t a player on the team that has scored a goal in Euro 2012 competition, there are plenty of goals and caps to go around in the front five or six. Dennis Rommedahl, if he gets the call, will be playing in his 117th match for his country. Nicklas Bendter of Arsenal is just 24, and he is sure to get the start as one of the real offensive threats for this Danish team. Also keep an eye for Christian Poulsen off the bench, as well as Christian Eriksen and Lasse Schone of Ajax Amsterdam, all of which could play a big time part of an upset if Denmark is to pull it off.

Of course, we can’t count out anything that the Dutch have the ability to do. Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie, Wesley Sneijder, Dirk Kuyt, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Rafael van der Vaart… They all have the ability to put the ball in the back of the net, and they are all going to be playing big time roles in what should be a good offensive effort against a suspect Danish club with a brand new net minder taking the reins as a full-time starter in a major tournament for the first time in his career. This is going to be quite the interesting challenge to say the least for Stephan Andersen, who clearly has his work cut out for him after taking over for Thomas Sorensen, who has basically been replaced on the squad after some suspect outings over the course of the end of the qualifying efforts and friendlies leading into Euro 2012.

Where we become concerned about the Dutch though, is in their back four. They just don’t have these players that are going to be stalwarts in defense, and the truth of the matter is that we don’t think all that much about Maarten Stekelenburg as the last line in defense. The AS Roma net minder just hasn’t been all that great in his career in these big time spots, and he is certainly not the same type of goalie that Edwin van der Sar was back in the day for this team. Needless to say, the offense might really have to step it up, which isn’t something that we are overly worried about. It might take a lot of two and three goal efforts to get this team out of the Group of Death and into the Euro 2012 knockout rounds, though.

Netherlands vs. Denmark Match Preview & Analysis: In the end, we really don’t think that either of these teams are going to be kept off of the scoreboard in this match. Though we know that the opening matches of these tournaments tend to be a bit more defensive in nature, we really like what both offenses are bringing to the table, and we have a lot of questions about both of the defenses. In the end, we do think that there is just going to be far too much pressure coming from the Dutch offense for Andersen to deal with, and he might ultimately conceded two or three times. In the end though, we think that Denmark is a slightly underrated team, and we tend to forget that this is a team that is ranked in the Top 10 in the FIFA World Rankings right now. The Danes won’t go quietly. We definitely think that there are at least four, maybe even five goals that are going to be split in some way, shape, or form on Saturday night.
