2023–24 Eredivisie Winner Odds & Favorites
Here’s a look at the 2023–24 Eredivisie winner odds and the favorites to win the championship from the best football sportsbooks:
Ajax @ 2.40 (7/5)
Ajax had disappointing results last season as they finished third in the Eredivisie. They had won the league for three straight years before the 2022–23 season. Ajax will be a slight favorite over Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven, but it won’t be easy for them. They lost players like Jurrien Timber to Arsenal and Dusan Tadic to Fenerbahce. Ajax always performs well in the league no matter what, and they will have their chances to win the championship.
Feyenoord @ 3.50 (5/2)
Feyenoord is the defending champion after winning the title comfortably in 2023. They had an extraordinary season, as they had the third-best offense and defense while also going deep in the Europa League competition as well. They had the best away form, which was the key to their championship win. Santiago Gimenez scored 15 goals for Feyenoord in the Eredivisie last season, and he will be an important player for them to repeat their achievement. Their chances are high to win the title again.
PSV Eindhoven @ 3.50 (5/2)
PSV Eindhoven last won the Eredivisie in the 2017–18 season, but they have been performing well in the Dutch domestic cups in recent years. They have won the last two KNVB Cups as well as the Johan Cruyff Shield in 2022 and 2021. They lost Xavi Simons to PSG this summer, but they still have a good roster that can compete in the league.
AZ Alkmaar @ 29.0 (28/1)
AZ Alkmaar’s chances to win the league won’t be as high as those of the top three teams, but they can definitely compete for the top three if one of the above teams struggles. They have won the championship twice before, lastly in 2009. They finished in fourth place last season and will only be looking to improve from that. AZ Alkmaar had the second-best away form in 2023, and it will be great for them if they keep that performance for the new season.
FC Twente @ 81.0 (80/1)
FC Twente finished in fifth place in the Eredivisie last season. They improved a lot in the last two years and finished in the top six, as they were always in the bottom half of the table before that. FC Twente has won the league only once in the 2009–10 season. They won’t have many chances to win the title this year and are not worth betting on, maybe when they improve further in the future.
Football Eredivisie 2023–24 Format & Overview

Outright Winner 23/24 Eredivisie Season Predictions
Feyenoord to Win Outright @ 3.50 (5/2)
According to the bookmakers in the Netherlands, Feyenoord is one of the favorites to win the league this season. They have a very balanced squad that can compete with the best teams in the Netherlands. They have players like David Hancko, Lutsharel Geertruida, and Santiago Gimenez. Feyenoord has won 13 KNVB Cups and 16 Eredivisie championships. They won the league by a whole seven points between them and second place, and they can win it again.
PSV Eindhoven to Win Outright @ 3.50 (5/2)
PSV Eindhoven has won 24 Eredivisie championships, which is the second-most titles by any Dutch club. They had some good performances last season but were unfortunate to lose the league in the end. Luuk de Jong, Ibrahim Sangare, and Walter Benitez will lead the team in the new season for a chance to win the championship. Choosing both Feyenoord and PSV to win outright will be a profitable strategy instead of picking Ajax solely with a similar profit.
Season Predictions for Eredivisie 23/24
AZ Alkmaar to Have a Top-Three Finish @ 4.0 (3/1)
AZ Alkmaar has been consistent in recent years. They have finished outside of the top four only once in the last six seasons, as they got third place three times and fourth place twice in that period. They are a good team that is improving and will compete for a top-three finish this season. If any of Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, or Feyenoord drop this year, then Alkmaar will be the favorites to take their place.
Almere City to Get Relegated @ 2.0 (Evs)
Almere City got promoted to the Eredivisie for the first time. They have been playing in the Eerste Divisie since 2005. Almere finished third last season and beat FC Emmen in the promotion playoffs to finally get into the Eredivisie, but it will be tough for them to stay in the league on their first try. Their squad is one of the weakest, with the academy far from producing talents of Virgil van Dijk caliber and hope for their quick growth and impact. Logically, they are expected to finish among the bottom three teams.
