Daily Tips – Clean sheet and a win for Scots

Scotland host Lithuania later today as they seek a spot at the World Cup in 2018 and they should be able to record a much-needed win.

The draw has been fairly kind to Gordon Strachan’s men but they must make the most of their home games in Group F as tricky trips to England, Slovakia and Slovenia lie ahead – so a win over Lithuania on Saturday is a must.

The Scots are a good side on home soil and in their last 10 fixtures they’ve only tasted defeat twice, against Germany and England.  They’ve also managed some impressive wins against Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Denmark.

Meanwhile, Lithuania’s away record is fairly woeful.  They head to Scotland seeking a first away win since a 2-0 success in San Marino back in 2014 and during the 11 games since they’ve managed just two goals.

If Scotland slip up here their qualification hopes will take a knock but they should be able to make it two wins from two World Cup qualifiers – and I’m also backing them to keep a clean sheet.

Since their failed Euro 2016 qualification campaign, Strachan’s side have been a fairly tight unit and, aside from defeats in Italy and France, they’ve been in good form.

The hosts are 20/23 to win to zero and that’s my top bet for this clash as goals are like gold dust for Lithuania on the road.

If you’re looking at the goalscorer market, Oliver Burke and Robert Snodgrass, who hit a hat-trick in the 5-1 hammering of Malta last time out and is Scotland’s penalty taker, both appeal.

Burke is 5/2 to score at anytime or 7/1 to score first, while Snodgrass is 6/1 to open the scoring or 43/20 to find the back of the net at anytime.
