1. Odds Preview
Despite having lost their opening match of the group to Albania and being down in 94th place in the official FIFA world rankings, its Israel who start the match as favourites to pick up maximum points. The Israel vs Scotland betting odds show Israel at 3.02 to win the match with 1XBET.
One glance at Israel’s recent results shows they are in poor form and therefore their tag as favourites for this game may come as a surprise. Israel have lost each of their last four games, winning only one of their last ten. They have lost each of their last four matches on home soil, failing to score in three of them which is a poor record.
With that in mind, Scotland will fancy their chances of picking up an away win and they are available at 2.63 with 1XBET. However, Scotland have won only one of their last four matches but have won two and drawn one of their last three away games on European soil. Scotland have the added bonus of already having 3 points to their name from their first match in the group.
If you think the teams are closely matched, the draw is also on offer at 3.13.

2. Israel v Scotland Prediction
This could be a match with few goal scoring opportunities. Israel have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four home matches while Scotland have failed to score in four of their last seven away games. This means we could see a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals is 1.58 at 1XBET.
Israel’s poor home record suggests this is a good opportunity for Scotland to cement their place at the top of the group. If Scotland are to win this game, it is unlikely to be by a big margin and you can get 4.00 with 22Bet for Scotland to pick up maximum points with a one goal win.
