It's time for Steve Clarke to get Scotland's World Cup chances back on track and what better opportunity than a home match against 175th ranked Moldova at Hampden Park?

The Scots haven't tasted defeat in a home World Cup qualifying match in eight years, when Belgium were the last team to leave the southside of Glasgow with all three points, and they should be too good for the Moldovans who's only two wins in their last 32 away matches have come against San Marino (thanks to @pieandbov for the stats!). That run includes an 8-0 thumping in Denmark earlier in the campaign but let's not get too carried away eh?

The Tartan Army feared the worst on Wednesday when a depleted Scotland side fell two goals behind early on against Denmark but a marked improvement in the second half offered more threat and will carry them in to this match in a more optimistic mood.

Clarke's men are 2/11 (SBK) to claim the win but should do so with something to spare. On the Asian Handicap they can be backed at 1.960 minus two goals of a start. That means you'll get your money back if they only win by two, therefore they need to score three for you to collect. That being the case you're as well to back them to score three or more at 1/1 (SBK).

Finland, Norway and Slovenia look like they could make up a proftable even-money treble against lesser opposition. The Finnish should be relatively proud of their showing at Euro 2020 but need a win to close the gap on France and Ukraine who sit above them in Group D. Those two nations meet in Kiev and that match is in SlipsTips' sights who is homing in a cards bet which is influenced by the Slovenian referee in charge.

Latvia will need to tame Erling Haaland if they're to stop Norway but better defences than their's have tried and failed, while Slovenia, who aren't exactly top tier themselves should still be good enough against perennial strugglers Malta.

League One fixtures in England have been decimated to just three matches but the majority of League Two has survived the international break. Desmond hasn't been put off however and serves up his usual raft of goals bets including a 117/1 Acca.

Bookies have been incredibly slow to price up the Scottish Challenge Cup, with some not even bothering at all! Both Celtic and Rangers B sides have impressed on their debut season in the Lowland League, each having only tasted defeat once in their opening eight and nine matches respectively.

It's the Hoops youngsters that are in action on Saturday against Championship side Morton who currently sit middle of the table. It's a big step up for the Colts team but they could have the backing a sizeable support at the Penny Cars Stadium since the first team isn't in action. They're best priced at 15/4 to win which could give you a run for your money.

Cove Rangers and Partick Thistle are two sides that have started the season well. The Jags' task looks the tougher of the two but if Ian McCall goes with strong line-up then they should see off hosts Stranraer while the same is true of Cove who host League Two's bottom side, Stenhousemuir. The Double pays just over 9/10 at Bet365.

The Highlanders have plenty of goals in them and it would be great to get on some kind of goals bet with them but the bookies aren't playing ball and there doesn't appear to be any decent markets available or inded much in the way of BetBuilder options.

So the best option looks to be to back Paul Hartley's side to be leading at both half-time and full-time at 20/21.

    🇫🇴 Faroe Islands vs Denmark 🇩🇰

    Profited from the Faroes getting beaten 4-0 by Israel and I can see the Danes giving a bigger hammering. Denmark have scored 16 in 4 qualifiers so far including an 8-0 win over Moldova – a side that drew 1-1 with the Faroes. Denmark are a level above Israel so if the choose to turn it on then this could be a heavy score line.

    Denmark to score 4+ 6/4 – 5 points
    Denmark to score 5+ 7/2 – 2 points
    Denmark to score 6+ 9/1 – 1 point
    Denmark -3 2/1 – 2 points

    • Footiefan77 3 weeks ago

      Jawan I think this will be closer than you suggest. There are a large number of Danish speaking people in the Faroes and some see this as a kind of derby. The Danes should still win but I don’t expect a thrashing or cricket score.

      1
    • jawan 3 weeks ago

      Appreciate the insight – always good to hear others perspective.

      I just feel the odds against prices offer value. In qualifiers Danes have put 4 past Austria, 2 past Scotland and Israel and 8 past Moldova – excluding Moldova all these teams have put at least 3 past Faroes. Of course the 6 goals at 9/1 is a long shot, but 4-0 would see 6/4 & 2/1 winners with healthy profit. No guarantees but here’s hoping they match or better the Israel score line from Wednesday.

      When the two sides met last October it was 4-0 by HT and the Danes finished with 25 shots and 14 corners – I’ll take more of the same today!

    Scotland -1 handicap
    Norway to beat Latvia
    0.92/1

    Scotland should be winning this more comfortably than just beating the -1 handicap but we have all seen too often how we can make hard work of things. The -1 should be safe enough as we should be more than capable of bagging two today and Moldova don’t score too many, so covers the 2-0 or 3-1 scenarios.

    Was struggling to pick a 2nd option given how short most teams are but I’ve decided to go with Norway. Latvia don’t actually look a bad team and look like they may have improved somewhat in the same vein as teams such as Macedonia and the faroes. However, they do have a pretty leaky defence and Norway will be confident after their draw against the Netherlands. This is a must win for Norway to stay in a tight race in their group. Might not be as comfortable as the odds suggest but I’m backing Norway to get the job done.

    1
    • Footiefan77 3 weeks ago

      Scotland should win this. I love football stats. There is a fascinating statistic that Moldova have lost 24 games in a row against sides in the top 75 in the world which Scotland is 49th.

    • Invincibles 3 weeks ago

      Should definitely win mate and comfortably at that, just wouldn’t trust them any further than a -1 handicap!
