World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

Scotland had to rescue a very late draw at home in their first match against Lithuania and that was a huge disappointment for them. They can’t afford to drop more points against them in this one and they have to keep their slim qualification hopes alive by collecting three points in the game. The best result for Scotland on Friday is for them to collect the win and then see Slovakia and Slovenia play out a draw. That would open the door a little wider for Scotland to get into the scrap for second place.

Lithuania vs Scotland Betting Tips

Lithuania aren’t a huge threat and they have collected only the five points from their six World Cup qualification games so far in the group. At home in the group, they have gone W1 D1 L1 having lost to Slovakia, drawn with Slovenia and beaten Malta. They obviously are not a powerful, attacking side and they have averaged just the one goal per game and at the back, they have conceded at a rate of almost two per game in qualification. So there will be chances for Scotland in this one. But the Scots had to pull out a really late equaliser at home against Lithuania earlier in the group to get a 1-1 draw, and those dropped points against the Lithuanians one home has been a major blow to the Scots. Lithuania have scored in six of their last seven home games and both teams to score at bet365 is a decent punt at 6/5 just because of their scoring form at home.

Scotland needs to do something of a professional job in this one. A point doesn’t really do them any favours so they have to go out, be positive and drive for the win. For a side that has given up ten goals in six games that may make them a little more valuable thought. What three points would do for Scotland really would just keep them in touch with Slovakia and Slovenia who are above them. Those two play each other on Friday night and a draw in that one would be the best outcome for Scotland. On their travels so far in the group, Scotland they have lost 3-0 against both England and Slovakia and won against Malta 5-1. Leigh Griffiths is even money favourite in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market with Chris Martin at 3/2. Scotland’s qualification hopes are a bit slim as it is, so they to win this. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is 7/5 and actually a decent option.
