Tight Betting For Final World Cup Qualifying Game

Slovenia saw their chances of a play-off place all but ended on Thursday night as they went down 1-0 to England at Wembley but they still do retain mathematical chances, which will ensure they will be going all out for the win.

In truth though, with Slovakia sure to beat Malta, this one is all about Scotland with only three points likely to be enough for them to finish behind England in Group D. The Tartan Army have ht form in 2017 after a tough spell, with four wins and a draw from their five qualifiers this year putting them in pole position for 2nd spot.

They squeaked past Slovakia on Friday night and punters backing them for a massive three points can get 9/5 with Paddy Power, with a home win a slightly shorter 7/5 shot with the same firm.

Nuggety Slovenia Are A Tough Nut To Crack At Home

Scotland go into this game riding the crest of a wave, unbeaten in five qualifiers in 2017, but this is a very tough ask for them against a Slovenia team who are very tough to beat on their own patch.

In fact, Slovenia have not conceded a goal at home during this entire qualification process with three wins and a draw to their name in their four home games up to this point. Only England managed to leave Slovenia with anything after their secured a 0-0 draw last year, and that highlights the task facing Gordon Strachan.

Aside from a 4-0 win over Lithuania, it is fair to say that Slovenia have been less than prolific this campaign, which will be a glimmer of hope for Scotland, with the other three matches all producing less than 2.5 goals. Backing the same outcome on Sunday evening looks a lovely side punt at 3/5 with Bet Victor.

Conclusion

Scotland have been excellent at Hampden Park during this qualifying process but their form away from home has been less than spectacular, and that has to be a worry. They were swept aside 3-0 by England and Slovakia in the only two matches against decent teams on the road and although they do have the momentum, and the players to win this game, the stats point in the other direction.

Marshalled by the brilliant Jan Oblak in goal, Slovenia have a very proud home record defensively and although Scotland have the passion, it is a Slovenia win at 7/5 with Paddy Power which makes appeal from a betting point of view.
