Expert Betting Tips
It will not be easy for Scotland and Israel to put up a fight against Denmark, but both national teams showed a good game against the Austrians, achieving a positive result. Not surprisingly, the Scots and Israelis are in second and third place, respectively. The upcoming meeting will naturally be very tense. The teams will hardly act openly. We should not expect a lot of scoring chances. But what we can be sure of is that there’ll be a lot of hard fighting. I suggest considering the line with yellow cards as the main bet. You can also bet on Total Under and a draw.
- Yellow Cards Total Over (3.5) for 1.65;
- Draw for 3.30;
- Total Under (2) for 2.26.
