<1.40> <4.20> <5.65>

a very tough one to call. both sides have mediocre defences, good holding midfielders, brilliant attacks. russia have the speed and tactical genius of guus hiddink to count on, to try and somehow find a way past the netherlands into the semis. the dutch, however, are technically very gifted, and i am very tempted to go big on them, as i feel that euro 2008 is where they finally live up to their potential. i also see this match producing at least three goals, so go over.

- Eddy's prediction: $10 on holland @ 1.40 = $14.00
$5 on over 2.5 goals @ 1.80 = $9.00

As what Eddy said. Both teams are really similar and both love to counterattack with speed, so the Over bet could be very worthwhile. They have, however, 2 key differences between them that will determine the winner of this match - 1) The Dutch are technically more superior than the Russians, and 2) Eddy and I have money on Holland to win Euro 2008 at odds of 13. So, Holland will win this one, as I doubt that there will be 3 upsets in a row. Expect brilliant defensive striker Dirk Kuyt to turn up for this match and stop Yuri Zhirkov down the flanks and score 3 fluke headers.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Holland @ 1.40 = $14.00
$5 on Over 2.5 goals @ 1.80 = $9.00
