The Slovenians have remained unbeaten on home soil in the World Cup qualifiers and that means that Scotland are going to have to work hard in this one. The Scots moved into second place in the group with a fantastic 1-0 win over Slovakia on Thursday night. They may be in the driving seat but the job is not done yet. A win in Slovenia on the weekend will get them that second place finish guaranteed, if they don’t win, Slovakia can overhaul them by beating Malta at home.

Slovenia vs Scotland Odds

Slovenia 6/5, Scotland 15/8, Draw 5/2

Slovenia vs Scotland Betting Tips

Scotland still have some work to do after their epic night at Hampden Park on Thursday. They had to find a way to beat Slovakia and although they left it late, Chris Martin found a winning goal to give the Scots a 1-0 victory. That was a must win game which moved them up into second place in the group. They will need to win on Sunday in Slovenia to guarantee that they stay in second place. They are running in the kind of form to pull it off as well with a W4 D1 record in their last five games, a stark contrast to the poor from the put up in the early stages of the group. With momentum pushing them, can they go and finish the job now with the momentum behind them? If they only manage a draw, that knocks Slovenia out but it would leave Scotland needing Slovakia to not beat Malta.

There have only been the four games between them in the previous head to head and the Scots have won all of them and have remained unbeaten in a W2 D2 record. They recorded a 1-0 victory over them earlier in the group back in March and three of their four games against Slovenia have been with a clean sheet. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 8/13 and that can lead you on to other good betting options for the game. A Scotland 1-0 result is a price of 15/2 in the bet365 correct score market and there is the 1-1 draw at 11/2. Scotland have posted a W2 L2 record from their four away games in the group so far, beating Lithuania and Malta while losing in England and Slovakia.

Leigh Griffiths is the 21/10 anytime goalscorer favourite while Thursday’s hero Chris Martin is at 11/4. The patience of Scotland will be tested in this one again because Slovenia have only conceded five goals in their campaign so far. They showed at Wembley against England in midweek that they can stifle teams very well. They are unbeaten on home soil in the campaign and they have kept a clean sheet in their four home games as well. In their two big home games so far in the group, they managed to hold England to a 0-0 draw and beat Slovakia 1-0. Both teams NOT to score at bet365 is a price of 4/5. They do still have a chance at qualification, albeit a very slim one, as Slovenia would need to win this future and hope that Slovakia don’t beat Malta to get through in second place.
