Now we bring you what has to be one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures of the 2020 European Championship group stage with our England vs Scotland betting tips. This match is in the second round of fixtures of Group D and will be played at Wembley Stadium, London, thus giving the hosts an advantage. However, things are not always as straight forward as they seem when these two rivals meet and we will be looking into that further in our Scotland vs England betting predictions. At the time of writing, it is England who are the favourites and the odds for this match have them at 1.40.
In addition to our England vs Scotland preview, we will bring you details of where to bet on England vs Scotland and the latest betting odds for Scotland vs England. That is not all and you will also find out where to watch England vs Scotland. However, we begin by looking at the England vs Scotland favourite.
Most England vs Scotland tips and predictions will be backing the Three Lions to pick up maximum points and that is confirmed by the England vs Scotland odds. The hosts are the clear favourites in the betting odds to win the match.
Firstly, I’d like to congratulate Steve Clarke, he’s a super guy and I’m really pleased for him. For Scotland it’s been a long time. They’ve got some very good young players coming through and are a team that are improving really quickly. Let’s hope we’ve got full crowds back in the stadium. That will give everybody something to look forward to in what is a difficult time for everyone. - Gareth Southgate about Scotland, The Guardian
England had little trouble in qualifying for the 2020 European Championship as they finished top of Group A. They were 6 points clear of second place Czech Republic and even defeat in Prague did not prevent England from comfortably qualifying for the tournament. In truth, England usually have little trouble in qualifying for major tournaments such as the European Championship but their performances come the competition itself have been inconsistent and this can lead to some differing predictions for Scotland vs England.
England were extremely disappointing at the 2016 European Championship where they finished second in their group behind Wales. They managed to pick up just a single victory from their three games although the win did come against a fellow British nation. England have enjoyed recent dominance over Scotland and are undefeated in their last 4 meetings, winning 3 of those games.
In fact, England have tasted defeat just once in their last 11 matches against Scotland and will be feeling confident of their chances in this game.
2. Scotland vs England Outsiders
Being labelled as the Scotland vs England outsider will not bother the Scots and they will love having the opportunity to upset the odds and win this match. However, when making an England vs Scotland prediction, it is difficult to make a genuine case for the Scottish team to come out on top.
Scotland made a disappointing start to the European Championship qualifying campaign as they suffered a 3-0 defeat in Kazakhstan. It was always going to be difficult to keep pace with the likes of Belgium and Russia following that setback and Scotland were forced to settle for finishing in third place. However, they advanced to play-offs via the Nations League and came through matches against Israel and Serbia to qualify for the tournament. Both games went to extra time and penalties but Scotland did perform well in the away fixture against Serbia.
Still, you will struggle to find a Scotland vs England match preview that genuinely believes the Scots can win this game unless it has been written by someone residing in Scotland. The betting odds for Scotland vs England have the former as a sure outsider to win the game and the draw is also on very high offer.
3. Other Bets for Scotland vs England
We have seen plenty of goals in recent fixtures between the two teams and over 2.5 goals seems a decent England vs Scotland prediction. Each of the last 4 matches between England and Scotland have produced over 2.5 goals and it would not come as a surprise to see a similar outcome in this game.
With England having the home advantage, we must predict it will be the hosts who score the majority of the goals. Scoring goals has not come easy to Scotland and we expect to see England score 2 or more goals and take maximum points.
