Scotland vs Canada Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Scotland v Canada betting tips and predictions ahead of this international friendly, kicking off at 7:45pm on Wednesday 22nd March 2017.


Scotland suffered a disappointing start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, leaving them looking out of the race for Russia already. However, they’re aiming to get 2017 off to a flyer with a victory over Canada.


Scotland vs Canada Predictions


Scotland ended last year with defeats against England and Slovakia. The Scots host Slovenia at the weekend; which is crucial as they look to boost their thin hopes of making the play-offs. The Scots clearly aren’t up to the level of the sides in their group, but they’ve got a straightforward fixture against Canada on Wednesday night.


The Scots face a side placed 117th in the FIFA rankings. Not only that, but the hosts have an excellent record in friendlies here. They’ve won eight of their last 10 home friendly internationals, and they should add to that by seeing of the Canadians, who have lost five of their last six away games.


While we see a home win, we’re also backing goals for our football betting tips. Canada have conceded in 10 of their last 11 outings, while Scotland have conceded in six straight. We can see goals when these two meet, so we’re backing both teams to score at 7/5 with 888Sport for our first Scotland vs Canada prediction. Since we’re expecting a high scoring affair, the Scots to win and over 2.5 goals seems like a great value bet at 27/20 with Coral for another Scotland vs Canada betting tip in this international friendly this week.

Gordon Strachan is planning to rest his Celtic stars during this fixture, so he’ll have to make use of the rest of his squad. West Brom’s Matt Phillips is out of the squad through injury, while both James McArthur and Grant Hanley miss out.


Head to Head Stats

Scotland have won 3-1 in their last two meetings with Canada. That certainly points to another high scoring affair in this clash. Can the Scots claim a similar victory on Wednesday night?


Scotland vs Canada Betting Odds

Scotland’s recent friendly victories have been down to Newcastle man Matt Richie, who has scored the winner in their last two at Hampden Park. He’s racked up nine Championship goals for the Toon this term, and he could be a key man for Strachan, given the injuries and rested players. He’s 12/5 with bet365 to score any time, which is worth backing. We’re also going for a repeat of recent matches here, as we’re backing a 3-1 win for the Scots at 14/1 with William Hill to complete our Scotland vs Canada predictions with this correct score tip.
