Scotland is back at Hampden on Sunday from 5.00pm in a match that will be shown live on Sky Sports. There’s very little interest in this one and it won’t feature too highly on the watch live in what is a busy evening of live football. Here are our top Scotland v San Marino betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Even the natives don’t seem overly interesting in the outcome of this match. Judging by the early ticket sales and the prices of seats, we expect the 90 minutes to be played out in front of a half-empty stadium. That’s not like the Tartan Army. However, many of them have had enough of the poor form shown by their team in recent years.
That puts the emphasis on our team of sports betting experts and football tipsters to come up with a winning bet. That should make this tie a little more entertaining. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of value available to punters willing to look beyond the match winner market. Play one of the many specials, including first goalscorer, both teams to score and handicap for a shot at a bigger price.
Finally a Win for Scotland?
Scotland, for as poor as they have been throughout this qualifying campaign, should have more than enough about them to beat the minnows of San Marino. They should do it with plenty to spare. It’s a chance to score a few goals, plus give youth and fringe players a chance and work. They can also work on tactics for their upcoming playoff match.
The locals are 1/100 with most reputable firms. This is ahead of the 20/1 for a draw and 60/1 on San Marino pulling off an upset. How many will Scotland win by? The handicap betting is worth a second look and we’re taking Scotland -4 on the handicap at 4/9 with Bet365.
