With just 11 points separating the winner from the fourth placed side in the Eredivisie last season, it goes to show just how competitive the Dutch top flight is.
Another indication came the previous year when it took until the final day of the season to decide the league champions. Ajax eventually landed the spoils on both occasions, but only after beating fellow title challengers within the final round of fixtures.
Meanwhile, PSV Eindhoven were the other club in the mix and it could be the same trio battling it out again in the coming campaign, alongside potential darkhorses AZ Alkmaar.
Ajax odds may be the best to follow in Eredivisie betting
Ajax are the most successful team in the history of Dutch domestic football, but somewhat surprisingly they have only won the title in three of the last ten seasons. PSV have claimed five titles in the same period, but are also in the middle of a bit of a dry patch as they have gone four seasons without being crowned Eredivisie champions.
The fact that Ajax have Danish starlet Christian Eriksen in their ranks undoubtedly contributed to tipping the scales in their favour last term, while the performances of Siem de Jong and Gregory van der Wiel were also important to their chances following Luis Suarez’s departure to Liverpool.
Backing the home teams a good ploy in the Eredivisie Odds
Eight teams in the Eredivisie last season won over half of their home games, and nine achieved the same feat the season before, so this may be the best strategy when looking at the Eredivisie odds.
Roda JC and RKC Waalwijk may be particularly worth following on their own patch as bigger odds are likely to be available. Vitesse Arnham are another side who could be good at home, while Ajax to keep clean sheets at home could be another way of making money in the match betting markets of the Eredivisie odds.
