England vs. Netherlands prediction, odds, start time: UEFA Euro 2024 semifinal picks from proven soccer expert

The Netherlands hope to reach the final for just the second time in their history when they take on England on Wednesday at BVB Stadion Dortmund in the UEFA Euro 2024 semifinals.

England had their first shot at the title in 2020 but lost to Italy on penalties.

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET. The Three Lions are +170 favorites (risk $100 to win $170) on the money line in the latest England vs. Netherlands odds, while the Dutch are +210 underdogs. A 90-minute draw is priced at +180 and the over/under for total goals scored is 1.5.

Why you should back England

The Three Lions have relied on their strong defensive play to reach the semifinals, as they converted only twice during the group stage before recording a total of three goals in their two knockout-round matches. However, the team has conceded just three times over its five Euro 2024 contests. Since defeating Iran 6-2 in their 2022 World Cup group-stage opener, England has allowed 14 goals over 23 games across all competitions, posting 11 clean sheets in that span.

Of England’s five goals in this competition, midfielder Jude Bellingham and striker Harry Kane have combined to produce four. The 21-year-old Bellingham converted in the club’s 1-0 victory against Serbia in the group-stage opener and Kane tallied in the 1-1 draw with Denmark, while both scored in a 2-1 triumph over Slovakia in the Round of 16. The 30-year-old Kane, who recorded a league-high 36 goals for Bayern Munich in 2023-24, is England’s all-time leader with 65 goals. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back the Netherlands

The Dutch have been solid offensively in Euro 2024, recording nine goals in their five matches. They are the only team in the tournament that has netted at least two goals in four contests, with the lone exception being their 0-0 draw with France in the group stage. The Netherlands are also the lone squad in the competition that twice has allowed the first goal of the match and rallied to win.

The Netherlands boast one of the top-scoring threats in the tournament in Cody Gakpo. The 25-year-old winger is tied with four others for the lead in Euro 2024 with three goals, giving him 12 in 29 career matches with the national team. Donyell Malen is second on the side with two goals after registering a brace in a 3-0 win against Romania in the Round of 16, while fellow forward Memphis Depay, striker Wout Weghorst and defender Stefan de Vrij also have converted. The 30-year-old Depay ranks second on the Netherlands’ all-time list with 46 international goals, four behind Robin van Persie. See which team to pick here.
