Scotland v England: World Cup Qualifier Betting Guide (Sat 10th June 2017)

Scotland v England Head-to-Head stats


With all the domestic action now over the top footballers on the planet might now have one eye on their summer holidays. However, with another round of World Cup Qualifying matches this weekend then many players will need to hold off putting their feet up for another week or so.

Yes, with five games gone in each group we’ve a load of crucial matches to enjoy and with not many games left it’s an important time for the sides that are desperate for points, while those at the head of their leagues will be looking to further cement their place at the 2018 Russian World Cup Finals next summer.

However, one of the standout games this weekend has got to be the Scotland v England clash at Hampden Park as the rivals go head-to-head this Saturday (10th June).

After five Group F games, England are ticking along nicely with 13 points and are sitting pretty at the top of the table, while Scotland are still very-much in the shake-up in fourth on 7 points. A victory for the Three Lions and surely, they will be hot favourites to be heading to Russia next summer, while a win for Scotland will get Gordon Strachan’s men right back in the hunt for a top two qualifying finish.

Both sides Group F form reads as follows – England have won 4 and drawn just 1 of their 5 games, while Scotland have won 2, drawn 1 and lost 2 in their campaign so far.

With that in mind, it’s no real surprise to see England as favourites in the match betting at 1.70, with the draw 3.50 and Scotland on offer as big as 5.25.

So, what do the stats say?

The teams last played in November 2016 in the reverse of this fixture and with England winning that one comfortably (3-0) then the Scots do have a fair bit to find – a repeat of that 3-0 scoreline can be backed at 12.00. Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Gary Cahill were the England players in the scoresheet in their last game, so are sure to be popular again.

No Sturridge in the squad, but Lallana will tempt punters in at 8.00 to score first, or 3.60 anytime with Bet365, while Gary Cahill is 13.00 to get the opener and 6.00 anytime.

That said, this season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner – Harry Kane – heads the list in the scorers’ market being 4.50 to net the first and 2.25 to score anytime, while of the Scottish players, Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths is the shortest-priced at 10.00 to score the game’s opener and 4.50 at anytime.

The last time they met in Scotland (Celtic Park, Nov 14) also saw England win that one – this time 1-3, that can be backed at 17.00 – while, in fact, the Three Lions have scored 3 times in ALL of their last three vs Scotland. You can back England to score OVER 2.5 GOALS at around 4.33.

But, for us, the overall match goals OVERS/UNDERS is a tough market to call – okay, the last three head-to-heads ALL went OVER 2.5 GOALS so that might tempt punters into thinking there will be plenty of goals here – but be warned. As all of the previous 6 before those three matches went UNDER 2.5 GOALS. Therefore, with that in-mind, this market is probably best left alone – if you do, however, fancy a dabble then OVER 2.5 GOALS is on offer at 2.30, while UNDER 2.5 GOALS is the favourite at 1.60.

7 of the last 9 head-to-heads have seen both teams NOT score, so at 1.61 this option might appeal, while some other key stats to note are that Scotland have won just one of their last 10 vs England – with the Three Lions winning 7 of the last 8 clashes.

England have also shut Scotland out in 6 of the last 9 clashes so at 1.90 and England clean sheet looks a fair price and is certainly a bet for the shortlist.

However, we are just going to keep things simple. We’ve already mentioned that England have a superb recent record over the Scots – winning 7 of their last 8 – so the 1.70 on offer on Gareth Southgate’s men getting all three points here and increasing their stranglehold in Group F looks the safest option.

Enjoy the game, and good luck!
