Sweet baby Moses, it's so hot outside, making it damn dear impossible to string a sentence together. Thank goodness, then, for some friends of The Spoiler, who have thrown together a short betting preview for the weekend's big match so that we don't have to…

The Holland v Spain World Cup Final looks set to be a great game. But based on past World Cup finals, it looks like it'll be a low scoring one.

The Holland v Spain Odds make Spain the favourites, no shocker there! But what is surprising is that Spain are available at odds against with most bookies to win in 90 minutes. So if you are backing Spain you can more than double your money.

Four out of the last five games had under 2.5 goals, and only one World Cup final has seen both teams score.. So it's safe to say it'll be another low scoring final with only one team scoring. Spain look the most likely to keep a clean sheet and win this game 1- 0. They have won their last three games 1-0, and should be able to make it four in a row. Back Spain to win 1-0.

This game has two of the World Cups top goalscorers - Villa and Sneijder. Both have five goals and both know that one more goal could secure the Golden Boot. The odds are pointing at Villa to score in this game and win the Golden Boot. Back Villa to be the first goalscorer in this game.
