England may not be one of the world’s top teams but they still have more than enough quality to see off a struggling Scotland side on Saturday.
Gareth Southgate’s team eased to a 3-0 win against the Scots seven months ago when the difference between the two teams was very marked. England are 21/2 to repeat that scoreline at Hampden Park this weekend.
Scotland have not qualified for a major international tournament since the 1998 World Cup and desperately need to take at least a draw from this game if they are to be playing in Russia in 12 months.
As usual England are cruising through to the finals. They already have 13 points from their first five qualifiers and are yet to concede a goal. Southgate’s team are 10/11 to keep yet another clean sheet on Saturday.
Harry Kane is England’s man in form after scoring 11 goals in his last eight games for Tottenham so it would be best to look elsewhere in the First Goalscorer market.
England ran out 3-1 winners when they last visited Glasgow – in November 2014 – and have won seven of their last eight games against Scotland.
It is difficult to see anything but another victory for England this weekend as Scotland have not beaten the Auld Enemy on home soil since 1985 when they ran out 1-0 winners.
Goals could be at a premium so the odds of 17/10 on there being Under 1.5 in the match should be taken up.
