Live on Skysports 2: Sat 15.00: Scotland are 13/8 (Stan James) to beat the Czechs and it’s 25/1 () Miller strikes in a 1-0 win.
With the domestic season temporarily on hold so that the Euro 2012 qualifiers can take place this weekend, Scotland are presented with what must be their final opportunity to get back on track against the Czech Republic on Saturday.
Despite the Czechs winning the reverse fixture 1-0 last October, bookies are finding it hard to split the pair here, with Stan James shouting 13/8 for both teams to triumph, while a draw is 11/5 (Betfred).
However, with a stalemate of no use to the hosts, Craig Levein’s men will be going all out for a win at Hampden Park, where they are evens with Paddy Power to score first. First blood to the home side may also result in them leading at the end of both halves (3/1, Totesport), just like they did against Denmark last month.
Elsewhere, correct score punters can get 5/1 with Ladbrokes for a 1-0 home victory, though a one-goal margin victory offers insurance at William Hill’s 11/4. Less accurate folk may instead take Partybets’ 11/5 for either a 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 Scottish success, where the same firm post 18/5 for Levein’s side to land maximum points in tandem with three match goals or more.
Investors interested in the number of goals hitting the Hampden Park nets on Saturday should also remember that five of Scotland’s last six home games all produced three match goals or more, which is 2.30 (13/10) with Betdaq this time around. Should the goals arrive, then Boylesports go 7/2 about the hosts scoring twice or more, though safer backers may prefer both sides making the scoreboard at bet365’s 11/10.
Should Scotland score first, then Skybet make Kenny Miller 6/1 to open proceedings, where Sportingbet are 21/10 for him to net at any stage. A combination of Miller scoring in 1 -0 home win, however, pays a handsome 25/1 via .
