NETHERLANDS V SPAIN BETTING TIPS (World Cup July 11): Hardly surprising that an event as big as The Netherlands v Holland in the World Cup final has little or no value in most of the main markets but I've spotted some good outside value betting tips in the less popular markets...

Arjen Robben getting his opponents booked has been a bit of a theme on Nic's Picks and while Skybet continue pricing up his direct opponent at 10/3 and betting prices as big as that, that theme will continue. Capdevilla will be the man in question this time and as usual Sneijder and co will look to feed Robben at every opportunity.

For Spain, Pedro or Torres is the question for Del Bosque and if he sticks with Pedro, the lethal finisher looks a great value betting tip @ 4/1 on the exchanges to hit the back of the net. He showed us for Barca last season what he is capable of in front of goal and looked very eager to score in the semi final.

We will round up the world cup with an overpriced fun bet where Paddypower are offering a "First BBC commentary Cliche" market. I've had success with these in the past and "First time winner" @ 12/1 is the standout value bet for me here.

Selections Offering Value: ( % = My estimated win expectation)

REMEMBER: You need to open up a Betfair Exchange betting account to get the biggest odds and maximise your winnings from a lot of tips on Nic's Picks.

Outside value bet: Pedro anytime goal scorer @ 4/1 (Betfair), 35%
Specials bet: Capdevilla to be booked @ 10/3 (Skybet)
Specials bet: First BBC commentary Cliche (during game) - "First time winner" @ 12/1 (Paddypower)
