England take on Scotland in the next World Cup Qualifying game. This will be both teams 4th qualifying game as they both have 3 games played. It's going well for both teams at this moment in time, although we must mention England do have the upper hand and are doing a little bit better. England have 2 wins and a draw from their 3 games and Scotland have a win, a loss and a draw. Both teams won their opening game, England beat Slovakia 1-0 and Scotland had a big win over Malta in their 1st game 5-1. England beat Malta in game 2 and then drew their 3rd and most recent game with Slovenia. Scotland drew their 2nd game with Lithuania and the lost game 3 to Slovakia. As you can guess, England are currently sitting on top of group F. It won't take much to knock them off the top however. A win for Scotland could see the be roles reversed where Scotland sits on top of group F and England shoved down to 3rd or 4th. England have a strong squad but they lack heart and although they have high calibre players like Rooney, Sterling, Welbeck and Harry Kane at their disposal, they always seem to have this problem where players, although some of the best in the world, cannot gel together well or play as a team.
Our Recommended Bets
England are the only team in Group F that have more than 1 win from 3 games. They are also unbeaten so far, this coupled with their outstanding record over Scotland in the past leads us to believe England will win this game. England 2-1, 8 with Bet365.
England have kept a clean sheet in all 3 games however, Scotland have scored in all 3 of their games. We reckon England will not manage to keep a clean sheet. England clean sheet NO, 1 with Bet365.
The majority of England’s goals have come in the 1st half. We believe a similar bet will cash out this week; 1st half will be the highest scoring. Highest scoring half – 1st, 2 with William Hill.
Bottom Line Prediction
A great rivalry exists between these 2 teams that goes back many many years. England, with all the talent they have, lack heart and passion. The culmination of all these great players into 1 team just hasn’t worked in recent years, which proves that passion, work rate and chemistry all matter a huge amount. Despite this we still believe they will win this, but Scotland won't give it up without a fight. England win, 4/11 with Bet365.
