Scotland v Georgia tips

October 10th, 2014

Scotland play host to Georgia on Saturday at Ibrox Park, with kick off at 5pm and the game live on SkySports 5.  

And if Scotland put in the sort of performance they did against Germany last time - which saw them ultimately lose 2-1 - there is every chance that Gordon Strachan’s men will win their first match in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Scotland may have lost to the World Champions in that opening Group D game, but they had been on an unbeaten run of six before that and the team is playing well under Strachan. His side are a best price of 4/6 with Bet365, who also offer the best odds of 11/2 on Georgia, with the draw available at 14/5 with BetVictor.

The Scots have a great chance of making it through this group, to at least a play-off place, as third position will guarantee that. It is likely that Germany and Poland will occupy the first two places and to achieve that objective of at least third place, it is imperative that Scotland take maximum points against Georgia both home and away.

Scotland will gain heart from the fact that Georgia have won none of their last seven away internationals (D1 L6) and we wouldn’t be surprised if Scotland won this encounter 'to nil' as Georgia’s young and inexperienced team have scored just two goals in their last four games away from home. Let’s take Paddy Power's odds of 13/8 on that happening.

Steven Naismith remains in good goal scoring form for both club and country and we suggest taking the 11/2 with Bet365 on the Everton striker scoring the first goal.

Let's also go for split stakes Correct Score bets on Scotland winning 1-0 (5/1 with BetVictor & Paddy Power) and 2-0 (13/2 with BetVictor & Paddy Power).
