The 15th match of the 2023 Cricket World Cup will see South Africa take on the Netherlands at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala on the 17th of October. Those who want to tune in to this match can do so from 09:30 GMT. South Africa have been in fine form so far with two wins from two, while the Dutch are still looking to get off the mark. Will South Africa carry on their merry way, or will the Netherlands cause quite a big shock? Below you can find my predictions as well as the most recent odds from betting sites.

💯 South Africa v Netherlands Betting Odds

The main reason why cricket betting has become so popular among Irish bettors, even those who are not huge fans of this sport, is the fact there are more markets than you can shake that proverbial stick at. There are three markets that I like the most, and you can find the current betting odds for such markets in the following tables:

Match Winner Odds: South Africa v Netherlands

Below are the match winner odds for this South Africa v Netherlands match:

South AfricaN/A1.031.041.03TBA

Top Batsman Odds: South Africa v Netherlands

When you are betting on sports, you should, in my opinion, be doing so purely for entertainment reasons and not just for the potential winnings - although winning is always nice. One of the cricket markets that leads to the most entertainment is the top batsman one because you can cheer on every run that your chosen batsman scores, while the odds on offer are usually decent due to the difficulty levels involved.

Below you can see the top batsman odds for three potential winners of this market from each team:

South Africa:

Rassie van der Dussen4.00TBA4.00
Aiden Markram6.00TBA6.00


Max O'Dowd4.80TBA4.80
Colin Ackermann4.70TBA4.70
Singh Vikramjit4.80TBA4.80

Top Wicket Taker Odds: South Africa v Netherlands

Sometimes you might not be able to pick one batsman out of all the quality batsmen that a team has on display and, in such cases, you can put this market to the back of your mind and opt for the top bowler market instead. I have picked three bowlers from each team that I think could go on to be the top bowler, and have given you their current top wicket taker odds.

South Africa:

Kagiso Rabada3.45TBA3.45
Lungi Ngidi3.15TBA3.15
Shamsi Tabraiz3.80TBA3.80


Bas De Leede4.00TBA3.95
Aryan Dutt4.30TBA4.30

🔍 South Africa v Netherlands Match Winner Prediction

After the first few weeks of matches, I do not reckon that there will be many Irish cricket fans putting their money on the Netherlands to pick up their first win of the competition. Not many were looking at South Africa as potential winners of this tournament, but they have since shown that they have the batting and bowling power to go deep in this tournament. They will just have to try and overcome their reputation of being "chokers" when the pressure is on.

The Netherlands, on their day, can be a tricky prospect for most teams, but with the way that the South Africans have been playing, it is hard to see the Dutch causing them any sort of real problems. The Proteas batsmen will be confident about being able to plunder runs against the Dutch bowling attack, while the Netherlands batsmen will struggle against the pace and guile of South Africa's quicks.

It is for all of the above reasons that I can see nothing but a South Africa win against the Netherlands, and a pretty comfortable one at that.

✔️ South Africa v Netherlands CWC Betting Tips

I am now going to give you some betting tips for this South Africa v Netherlands match:

Match Winner: South Africa to Win

These two teams have played each other 7 times in the ODI format, and South Africa have six wins under their belts, while the other match finished without a result. History and form, it is fair to say, are firmly in South Africa's favour, and I do not see there being another shock result.

South Africa have won their opening two matches with ease, and they are firing on all cylinders in both the batting and bowling department - they have also been pretty much faultless in the field. The Netherlands, on the other hand, have not given a bad account of themselves, but they are just lacking the resources that the other big teams have at their disposal.

The odds are extremely short in South Africa's favour, and I have to agree with them this time around. I would not recommend betting on the Proteas to win since the odds are not worth it, in my opinion, but those who want to bet on what should be a routine South African win can find odds of 1.04 at LegendPlay Sports.

South Africa's Top Batsman Winner: Quinton de Kock to Win

In their first two matches, I backed Quinton de Kock to top score for South Africa, and in both matches he went on to score a century, so he will be glad to hear that I am backing him to be their top scorer once again - I am clearly his good luck charm. The opening batsman, who will be retiring from this format at the end of the competition, has been in fantastic form, and I can envisage him taking the Netherlands' bowling attack apart.

If you want to put money on De Kock to top score for South Africa, then Dachbet Sports are currently offering odds of 3.70.

Netherlands' Top Batsman Winner: Max O'Dowd to Win

Max O'Dowd has not got going in this tournament, scoring just 5 and 16 in their first two matches, but I think he has the potential to be a very good player, which is why I am going to go out on a limb here and put him down to top score for the Dutch. He is a powerful opening batsman, and if he can survive the first two to three overs that he faces, then there is a chance for him to cash in. If he gets a score against this quality bowling unit, then it will fill him with confidence for the rest of the tournament.

If you would like to bet on O'Dowd to top score for the Dutch, then TonyBet Sports are offering odds of 4.80 at the moment.

South Africa's Top Wicket Taker: Kagiso Rabada to Win Top Wicket Taker

When it comes to top wicket taker for South Africa, it is definitely not a simple selection process as they have, in my opinion, one of the best bowling units in the competition. However, I have opted for Kagiso Rabada as he is one of my favourite fast bowlers on the circuit due to the pace and variation that he bowls at. He is a very clever bowler that can deceive opposing batsmen with his pace and guile, and I can see him causing the Dutch batsmen plenty of problems as they will not have come up against his quality that often.

Those who want to back Rabada to be the top wicket taker for South Africa can find odds of 3.45 at Dachbet Sports.

Netherlands' Top Wicket Taker: Aryan Dutt to Win Top Wicket Taker

I must admit that I had a bit of difficulty trying to select the top wicket taker for the Dutch, but I eventually opted for Aryan Dutt as I have been impressed with the way that he has been bowling so far in this tournament. His stats are not very impressive as he is averaging just under 50.00 with the ball in the 25 ODI matches that he has played, but one must take into account that he is just 20 years of age. So, I am ignoring the average for now, and backing him to pick up a couple of South African wickets.

If you also want to put money on Dutt to be the top wicket taker for the Netherlands, then TonyBet Sports are offering odds of 4.30 for him to do so.
