					The 2010 FIFA world cup is sure to be exciting as the tournament is for
the first time going to be held on the African soil. This excitement is not
only in the field and gallery but also in all betting sites as well. World
cup betting is sure to break all records as it is the most awaited
tournament in the world. The betters can choose from different varieties
of bets. Some of the most popular world cup betting includes the team
which is expected to win the tournament and the player who would win
the golden boot. There might be a whole lot of favorites for this year’s
world cup but if you take into consideration the recent performances then
Netherlands do have a great chance to win this year’s world cup. Let’s see
the reasons that make Netherlands a strong favorite for this year’s
tournament.
The Netherlands team is often referred to as Oranje based on the color
of their football jersey. This team is known for their Total football and
is currently ranked fourth in the FIFA world rankings. The team had
an impressive world cup qualification stage and this has increased the
expectation of the fans on the current team. Today, two out of three Dutch
people say that their team is sure to win this year’s World cup and they
give some reasons why they consider their team as the best.
    1. The Big Four
The Dutch football team is now known for their Big Four, Wesley Snejider,
Robin van Persie, Rafael van der Vaart and Arjen Robben. The chances for
Netherlands to win this year’s world cup highly depend on the
performance of these four players. No other team in the tournament has
four such technically gifted players and in their day they can individually
win the game for their team. The only question that remains to be
answered now is how the coach would be able to accommodate all these
four players in his team.
Robin Van Persie who plays for the English club Arsenal is the prominent
among these four. He has just returned from a serious ankle angry and
has been able to regain his form. Wesley Sneijder, who captioned Inter
Milan for their triple tournament victories in Europe, holds the key in the
midfield. He is a true playmaker and is considered one of those best
football players that Netherlands has ever produced.
Then there is Arjen Robben who plays for the German side Bayern Munich
and won the best player’s trophy in this year’s Bundesliga. He suffered
an injury during the team’s practice session but the latest reports from
the Netherland camp confirms that the player would be fit before their
opening match. Rafael van der Vaart is a promising striker and can find
goals from any position in the field. Just give these Big four players a
chance to showcase their stuff and it’s sure the team would return to their
country with the World Cup in their kitty.
   2. Manager Bert
Bert van Marwijk is the coach of the Netherlands team from the year
2008. Ever since he took charge of the Oranje, they have never lost a
game and even won all their world cup qualifying matches. Under his
guidance the team has been doing well and the fans expect that Bert
would be able to guide the team into World cup glory
   3. Never won a World Cup
The Netherlands team is one of those best teams in the Europe but they
don’t have much to claim when it comes to World Cup. Even in the 1970’s
when the then team was known for its Total football, Netherlands was not
able to win the cup. Now the players are really hungry and this is why
Netherlands is widely considered a good prospect for World cup betting.
