Check out the latest odds to win Group A.

Netherlands (-420): The Netherlands has officially advanced to the knockout stage following Friday's draw against Ecuador. The Dutch picked up a 2-0 victory over Senegal in their opener and are hefty favourites to win Group A.

If the Netherlands can beat Qatar in its final group stage game — which seems likely — it will have a solid chance to win the group.

Ecuador (+390): Ecuador has looked deserving of a trip to the knockout stage after two games. An opening 2-0 victory over Qatar positioned the Ecuadorians well heading into their matchup against the Dutch.

Enner Valencia scored yet again, bringing his tournament total up to three. He's scored Ecuador's last six World Cup goals but was stretchered off the field in the 90th minute. Ecuador drew that match but will be in trouble if he doesn't return against Senegal.

Senegal (+1,500): Senegal deserved more than its result after a hard-fought battle against the Netherlands on Monday. The group recorded four shots on target and held the Dutch quiet through most of the match before allowing two late goals.

The good news for the Senegalese is that they got to face Qatar on Friday. They handed the hosts a decisive 3-1 defeat, eliminating them from the tournament. If Senegal can beat Ecuador on November 29 it will advance, if not, its tournament is over.
