World Cup qualifying tips for November 11
The international break gets into full swing on Friday as Coral experts give their World Cup qualifying tips for November 11, featuring the best England v Scotland bets and an intriguing eightfold acca.
The Auld Enemies encounter at Wembley takes centre stage for sure, but there’s also brilliant odds available on Germany meeting minnows San Marino and much more. Read on as our football tipsters reveal punts they feel can pay off…
England v Scotland bets: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals
When it comes to the neighbouring Three Lions and Tartan team, the form of their so-called friendly encounters from 2014 and 2013 looks persuasive.
Both battles between Auld Enemies ended with four or more goals going in with both teams finding the target. As this is a competitive clash, however, it’s safer to take the 21/10 on offer for over 2.5 goals and the sides to score among England v Scotland bets.
Kevin Gameiro to score anytime against Sweden
Atletico Madrid marksman Kevin Gameiro is France’s leading scorer in World Cup qualifying, and has now struck up a partnership for club and country with Antoine Griezmann.
Griezmann is shorter in the anytime market than his teammate, so the value bet is backing Gameiro at 7/5 to net against a Sweden side now short of so much experience.
Over 8.5 goals in San Marino v Germany
When world champions Die Mannschaft last went away to San Marino, they put 13 past them. Ruthless efficiency is what Joachim Low’s lads have displayed throughout his time in charge of Germany.
That makes 13/5 for over 8.5 goals in their latest very attractive indeed. Die Mannschaft have hungry youngsters keen to impress, as well as seasoned striker Mario Gomez on their roster. Germany should fill their boots against San Marino once again.
Northern Ireland to win to nil against Azerbaijan
Michael O’Neill knows his Northern Ireland side are strong at home. Indeed, they have won their last four fixtures to nil on Irish soil, so siding with another victory and a clean sheet makes sense.
A 6/5 price says they shall beat Azerbaijan without conceding, and that experienced Northern Ireland defence can easily shut out this Eastern European opposition.
There’s also an intriguing eightfold acca we like the look of. Staking just €/£1 on this returns more than €/£27, meaning you get current combined odds of better than 26/1*!
Back the aforementioned England (1/3)*, France (1/4)* and Northern Ireland (8/13)* all to win at home alongside Slovakia (4/11)* over Lithuania, the Czech Republic (19/20)* over Norway, Denmark (1/4)* over Kazakhstan and a couple of teams away.
Adding Robert Lewandowski’s Poland (6/4)* to win in Romania and Slovenia (2/9)* to triumph in Malta makes sense because they are vastly superior to their opponents on paper. It all adds up to an extremely rewarding eightfold acca.
