Scotland v Slovakia tips: Griffiths to fire Strachan’s side into qualification contention

Scotland v Slovakia tips: Griffiths to power Strachan’s side past Falcons

FootyOn picks out their Scotland v Slovakia tips, as Gordon Strachan’s men look to put them into Russia 2018 contention.

Scotland started slowly during their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign, but have kept their dream alive by recording two straight wins and going five unbeaten.

Wins from their next games would secure their place in the play-offs, where they could face some big name footballing nations.

So, with the crucial match nearly here, we’ve picked out our top Scotland v Slovakia tips…

Griffiths to net first – 7/2*

Leith-born Celtic marksman Griffiths has hit the ground running this term, scoring seven in all club competitions so far – not to mention a brilliant free-kick brace for Scotland against England back in June.

With three goals and the same number of assists in his last three international outings too, the star is in sensational form.

Griffiths has shown he knows what it takes to score on the biggest stages of all and will not doubt be given a starting berth after Strachan declared him fit to play.

He is 7/2 with Paddy Power to open the scoring on Thursday.

Tartan team to win to nil – 14/5*

Scotland v Slovakia tips: The Tartan team look likely to win both halves.

Scotland have won their last two games to nil and three of their previous five home games without conceding, which is great precedent for BetVictor’s offer of 14/5 on the nation recording another win without reply.

The Tartan Army have also seen each of the country’s last four home wins come without the opposition scoring.

Scotland to win both halves – 31/10*

In each of Scotland’s last two World Cup qualifiers, Strachan’s side have been ahead going into the break and furthered that advantage in the second.

Being in this sort of form and the mood of the nation swinging dangerously towards the strange sensation of optimism, look to back Scotland in the half-time/full-time market – 31/10 with BetVictor.
