Scotland are bang on course to qualify for the World Cup play-offs and will be determined to avoid any slip-ups when visiting Faroe Islands.
Saturday’s dramatic defeat of Israel at Hampden Park put Steve Clarke’s side clear second in Group F behind runaway leaders Denmark.
This is an obvious opportunity to consolidate that position and Clarke will be keen to enjoy a more routine triumph.
We’re snapping up 9/10 for an away win to nil as our first Faroe Islands vs Scotland prediction.
A Look At Faroe Islands’ Betting Odds
Faroe Islands are coming off a 2-0 defeat by Austria at this venue which officially ended their chances of progressing.
Hakan Ericson’s side have taken four points off basement dwellers Moldova via a 1-1 away draw in March and last month’s 2-1 victory here.
However, they have lost all five of their other fixtures, failing to score in the last four of those reversals.
That includes a 4-0 drubbing by Scotland at Hampden Park, while they lost by the same scoreline to Israel here and 1-0 to Denmark.
Scotland midfielder John McGinn is taking nothing for granted, though, stating: “It will be a tricky game.
“We won’t be taking them for granted, they are a very physical team and we will also have to adapt to the surface.
“The minute we think we are doing all right and think we just turn up and win is when we get done.”
Looking at the Faroe Islands vs Scotland odds, we like 19/10 for the visitors to score an equal number of goals in each half.
Their hosts have conceded 16 so far in this pool, eight before the interval and the same amount after the break.
A Look At Scotland’s Betting Odds
Scotland are on 14 points, seven behind Denmark, but four ahead of both Israel and Austria in the race to finish as runners-up.
Aston Villa midfielder McGinn scored a terrific 11th international goal as Clarke’s side twice came from behind to beat Israel 3-2 in Glasgow.
Lyndon Dykes’ leveller was only given after a VAR review and Manchester United’s Scott McTominay bundled in an added-time winner to spark wild scenes of celebration.
“It was a great night, exciting, we are all happy that we are still in control of the play-off position,” declared Clarke.
“But now we have to go to the Faroes and make sure that we cement this result with another win, so that’s our goal.”
Scotland aren’t usually associated with such open, high-scoring contests, having previously posted 1-0 wins over Moldova and Austria.
Dykes also netted in both of those games so is an obvious choice for first-goalscorer bets.
We’re finishing off our Faroe Islands vs Scotland betting tips by taking 5/1 for the visitors to prevail 2-0.

SCOTLAND 3-2 Israel – McGinn, Dykes, McTominay
