Sparta Rotterdam - RKC Waalwijk betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 21:00 on 23/12/2021 played @ Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel refereed by Edwin van de Graaf

The online bookies marked Sparta Rotterdam as the favourites, which makes a lot of sense. Still, we wouldn’t put RKC Waalwijk winning beyond them – not to mention that draws are a strong possibility in relatively balanced games.

RKC Waalwijk appear severely unprepared for a clash with Sparta Rotterdam, to the point of being considered hard underdogs. We would consider even a draw a success, so the long 4.60 odds for an away win bit seem fitting.

Sparta Rotterdam’s previous away game at Vitesse ended as a 2:2 draw – which isn’t too bad for them. The odds were against them from the get-go, and they were behind during half-time.

RKC Waalwijk are coming off from a crushing defeat at the hands of PSV. The top online bookmakers priced their victory at 15.00 despite the home-field advantage. This assessment turned out to be true: RKC Waalwijk struggled to keep up from the get-go and ended up losing the match 1:4.

It’s easy to spot a certain trend when looking over RKC Waalwijk’s recent history – and not in a good way. Their latest appearances were marked by a high concession rate. For example, their previous 3 matches featured more than 5 conceded goals.

These two squads already clashed this season, and Sparta Rotterdam narrowly lost the bout. With a home-field advantage on their side, however, most bookies believe that they’re more likely to win this time.

To make things even more difficult for the visitors, they’ve had an unfortunate run of injuries recently. Richard van der Venne, Sebbe Augustijns, David Min, Joel Pereira have all been put out of contention, leaving the team’s coach with a more limited set of options at his disposal.

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 2.00, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.
