Netherlands Currently Listed at 1.50 To Defeat Costa Rica

Published on July 4th, 2014 3:35 pm EST


As mentioned previously on this site, the biggest mismatch of the 2014 World Cup Quarterfinals in the eyes of the bookmakers is the looming battle between the Netherlands and Costa Rica.

The Netherlands finished in second place at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and is looking to take it all the way this time. Costa Rica, on the other hand, is riding a wave of momentum that it first established with its surprise victory over Uruguay in the Group stage.

In short - Costa Rica's magical run is likely to end at the hands of the Netherlands, at least in the eyes of the bookmakers.


Here are the odds for Saturday's match between the Netherlands and Costa Rica:

Netherlands, 1.50
Draw, 4.00
Costa Rica, 7.00

So, according to these odds, a successful $100 wager on the Netherlands would return a profit of $50, while a successful $100 wager on Costa Rica would yield a total profit of $600.


The Netherlands have been fairly inconsistent over the course of the World Cup (barely beating Mexico in the Round of 16, squeaking past Australia, destroying Spain), while Costa Rica has consistently surpassed expectations.

In this World Cup that has been filled with surprises, will we get another one when the Netherlands and Costa Rica clash this weekend?
