The Holland Euro 2020 betting shortened to 7/2 as they became favourites again to win the Tournament. As Holland has already won the sc called ‘Group of Death’ the cynics amongst us would suggest that Holland could do a lot worse than lose their final Group game against Romania. In doing so they would effectively eliminate the World Champions and the World Cup runners-up in one foul swoop. A defeat for Holland of course would ruin their unbeaten tag, but does that really matter?. However, while Holland have beaten both the 2020 World Cup finalists emphatically, the Romanians have managed to draw with both of them and it would be extremely unfortunate for the Romanians if they were to lose or draw against Holland and thus allow the winners of France and Italy to qualify. Such is the ‘Group of Death’ predicament.
Holland has already won the Group, no matter what happens elsewhere, and if we were Marco Van Basten we would rather see the Romanian’s remain in the Tournament rather than France or Italy. If he was thinking like us of course we would strongly advise you to back Romania against Holland and double the bet with backing Romania to qualify.

It is interesting to see the way the Bookmakers have priced up this match, unless we are reading it all wrong, most of them have Romania as odds on favourites at around 10/11, while you can back Holland to win at 5/2. Are the Bookmakers being as cynical as us?
After their fantastic show against the French, Holland were made Tournament favourites at 7/2, we think that is good value based on their two incredible wins so far.
Holland v Romania Odds
The Holland v Romania odds for this Holland Romania betting ‘Group of Death’, match may surprise a few people as they show that the Bookmakers deem if prudent to have Romania as odds on favourites to beat Holland. How can this be possible after Holland have beaten both Italy and France in such emphatic style and are current Tournament favourites? The answer is simple; the ‘Bookies’ believe that in strategic terms Holland would rather see the back of Italy and France, but that will not happen if they beat Romania and there is a positive result in the Italy and France match. As it stands currently, France has qualified as Group winners already after two wins out of two, giving them 6 points. Romania has two draws from two matches, giving them 2 points and France and Italy have 1 point each after their draws with Romania. On paper Holland should make it a hat trick of Group wins in this match against Romania and would win the Group with a maximum 9 points. If that happens, then Romania would finish with 2 points, leaving them extremely vulnerable because any winner in the France Italy match will hoist them above Romania with 4 points, giving them of course the all important 2nd qualifying place. Should Romania win against Holland, they will finish up with 5 points and this would render the France/Italy match academic as neither would be able to overhaul the Romanian’s.
So what is the best bet, should we follow the ‘bookies’ lead and back an unlikely win for Romania or should we back the evidence, that Holland have been far and away the best side in this Group and should blow the Romanians away with the same breathtaking style as they used against France and Italy?
