So tiki-taka is dead, is it?  Vicente del Bosque and Spain will be starting the World Cup against the Netherlands on the 13th June ready to show that just because Barcelona have reached the end of their golden age, that doesn’t mean that the national team can’t use the tactics of relentless pressing combined with carousal passing to leave the opposition reeling.  In the latest outright World Cup betting odds Spain are 7/1 (Betfred) to win the whole thing and I think that people should be grabbing that with both hands.

So how about their opening game of the 2014 World Cup?  Many of the pre-tournament favourites sometimes start slowly, such as Spain themselves in 2010 vs Switzerland or Italy in all of them.  Could the Dutch spring a surprise?  I can’t see it, mainly because they’re not the type of team to dig in and grind out a result.  The weakest part of their team is the defence and so I cannot see them ‘parkeren van de bus’ against anyone.

The bonus for Spain is that they don’t just have a Plan A anymore, with players like Diego Costa and Alvaro Negredo emerging to add physicality to the team and opening up space for the artists.  I don’t see any top-class Dutch defenders who will be able to neutralise them and the rest of the Spanish threats.  Spain are 21/20 to collect three points here, and it should be a comfortable win.

The hope for the Dutch lies in their attackers.  Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie, and Jeremain Lens contributed 19 goals combined in qualifying and they will be a problem for any defence.  After all the talk of dressing room unrest over the years, the squad is younger and more relaxed under Louis Van Gaal, and after a poor EURO 2012, expectations are low which could ease any pre-match nerves. 

For my Spain vs Netherlands World Cup betting tips, I expect Spain to take control of the game early, and they could be in charge by half time.  In fact Spain to win by two goals can be had at 5/1 with Paddy Power and that makes up our first World Cup 2014 tip.

With the attacking quality of the Dutch surely they can take one goalscoring chance and a Spain win added to both teams scoring is at 17/4 with Coral and looks a good price for the next of our World Cup 2014 tips. If we are predicting a Spanish win by two goals and Holland scoring one in reply, then why not look at a correct score betting tip on Spain to triumph 3-1?  That’s at 20/1 with Coral and could be a very nice earner to kick off your World Cup betting.
