Read on to discover which Lithuania v Scotland tips have taken our fancy…
Griffiths to score first – 10/3
After over 12 international caps without a goal, Leith-born striker Leigh Griffiths wrote himself into the history books with a fine performance against England.
The Celtic man scored his first goal for Scotland with an 87th-minute free kick against the Three Lions, before netting another, almost identical strike just three minutes later to put Strachan’s side ahead.
Griffiths has an excellent club record throughout his career and is flying high since his recent Hampden heroics.
Therefore, back him to score first in Vilnius at 10/3 with betway.
Both teams score in Scotland triumph – 15/4
Scotland have a strong recent record against Lithuania, having not lost a game to the Baltic nation in their last six meetings.
Strachan has chosen a strong squad and one which should see them collect all three points.
However, Scotland have kept just one away clean sheet during World Cup qualifying in their last 12 outings.
So look to back the Tartan team to win, but both countries to score at 15/4 with BetVictor.
Scotland to win by one goal – 12/5
Strachan’s side may look far superior when it comes to squads, but expect this to be a tight affair at the 5,067 capacity LFF Stadium.
In three of Scotland’s last four wins over Lithuania, it has been won by just one goal.
Back them to repeat history and triumph by a single strike at 12/5 with Paddy Power.
