Spain versus Holland is the first and biggest game in Group B of the Brazil 2014 World Cup and could well decide who wins the group and thus (probably) avoids Brazil in the next round. Read on for our betting tips and the best live betting odds comparison making it quick and easy to find the best online odds.

Spain are priced at 10/11 to get their World Cup campaign off to a winning start and, in this repeat of the last World Cup final, we think that looks a solid price. Holland are out at 4/1 and whilst they undoubtedly have some top players, Spain should have the edge.

That said, if the holders are without Brazil-born Diego Costa there is every chance the draw could come into play at decent odds of 12/5 in what is likely to be a close game with little room for manoeuvre.

Spain have been written off by many ahead of the World Cup but they have great talent in their ranks and a clearly defined system of playing and we wouldn’t be surprised at all if they won the tournament. As such, our main betting tip here is for them to win the match, although other good tips look to be under 2.5 goals and the draw at half time.

The first game of a major tournament is often about avoiding defeat and with Chile also posing a big threat in Group B neither of these sides will commit too much too early and we could easily see this one being 0-0 at half time, as it was back in 2010. Spain should, however, prevail, and odds of 10/11 are well worth a bet.
