Trade of the day Thursday 24/6/10

Morning all,

Cameroon v Netherlands 7.30pm

We had a good look through today’s card and fancy the game below. Normally wouldn’t touch a game like this as the Dutch are already through and Cameroon are out but after reading various articles which state the Dutch will go for it, keep the momentum going and play the same side as for the last 2 games. Cameroon on the other hand are out, have bad coach issues and their best player eto has been criticised for under performing.

Stats and form

Dutch are ranked 4th. They won all 10 in qualifying and looked untroubled against Denmark and Japan. Whilst they haven’t truely clicked yet one feels it’s a matter of time with players like VP, Kuyt, Sneijder. For a side to have the luxury of leaving Robben on the bench they have to be good! Head to heads with Cameroon are 1 win, 1 draw. Unbeaten sice Sept 08, a run of 21 games. They have never lost to African opponents. Last 6 games they are 6-0-0 with 17 goals for and 4 against.

Cameroon are ranked 19th. They qualified with 4-1-1, losing to Togo. Recent matches they are 0-2-4. Scored 6 and conceded 11. Paul Le Guen’s side are on an nine-game winless run. Their last victory was a 2-1 win over Zambia in January’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Team news

Cameroon coach Paul Le Guen may be tempted to make changes for his team’s final game of this World Cup. Rigobert Song, Aurelien Chedjou and keeper Carlos Kameni could come in while defender Gaetan Bong, striker Eric Choupo-Moting and midfielder Joel Matip are also in contention.

Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk says he isn’t planning any changes and will field the same team for the third game in a row. That means Arjen Robben, close to recovering from a hamstring injury, will have to settle for a place on the bench at best.


As attached. One slight adjustment is try for 12s for 0-0. Should get matched on that. More cover on 0-2 we can lay if and when necessary. We can also top up 0-0 if necessary. For non members, back over 2.5 with cover on 0-0, 0-1, 0-2, 1-1. This is the CoverS strategy which currently has an 87% strike rate.

This will be traded in the Vets Room.

Post match round up

A trade of two halves! At 0-0 we took the decision to lay some of the overs off as it looked like the Dutch were happy for a tame draw. Fortunately many didnt see this information in the widgit so didnt do the lay resulting in a winning trade of £22. For the ones that did lay off, a loss of £9 was the outcome.
