Do you have the habit of betting on minnow games? The answer usually depends on which side of the big debate you’re on : do you think there are really no small teams anymore and anyone can cause upsets, or do you think that there are teams which will never-ever provide shocks? Regardless, we’re here to discuss one game which seems particularly one-sided from Sunday’s picks : Malta vs. Scotland.
World Cup 2018 Qualifying: Betting Prediction, Odds & Tips
Malta vs Scotland – 4th September
Betting Odds: Malta 8.00 or 7/1 Draw 4.50 or 7/2 Scotland 1.40 or 2/5
We’re very familiar with the Scots, a team which managed better and better results in recent times and was very close to qualifying for Euro 2016.
The fact that a lot of their squad regularly plays for big English clubs from the Premier League and Championship clearly has a good impact on the national team as well, and they are expected to perform rather well in Group F.
Apart from their highly-anticipated “Battle of Britain” against England, they should be able to compete head-to-head with any other team from the group and possibly even win second place.
On the other hand, Malta is one of the better teams from the group containing the worst teams of the continent. They are better than the likes of San Marino or Gibraltar but are not expected to produce any fireworks.
Snatching a draw here and there are the only things they can hope for, but we won’t expect them to produce such an outcome against the Scottish. The determination of the British team should be enough to push them through.
Malta vs Scotland Betting Prediction & Tips
The outcome of this game is clear, although not very clear – we don’t expect Scotland to win by 3+ or 4+ goals. We expect something along the lines of 0-2 or 1-2 – so not a lot of goals.
An over 2,5 goal bet is risky, being the first game of the qualifiers, but Scotland to score is a clear one. Scotland to win and under 3,5 goals is the high-odd pick of the day for us.
Result/Team Goals – Scotland & Under 3.5: 1.95 or 19/20
Number Of Goals – 2 or 3 Goals: 1.95 or 20/21
