World Cup Qualifying Betting Previews
Czech Republic vs Wales - 19:45, Friday 8th October
As we head into matchday 7 in Group E, Wales will be looking to bounce back from their recent draw against Estonia as they take on the Czech Republic. Currently sitting third in their qualifying group on level points with their opposition, Wales will be looking to capitalise on some recent poor form and pick up a vital three points. They may be short of firepower with Gareth Bale missing due to injury, but Aaron Ramsey, now with the squad, could feature. However, the Czechs shouldn't be underestimated, given their Euro 2020 performance, with both Soucek and Schick expected to play. Neither team will want to risk a playoffs finish following the conclusion of the group stages, so we think it will be a tight game with both teams getting on the scoresheet.
Scotland vs Israel - 17:00, Saturday 9th October
Scotland gave a very strong account of themselves back at Euro 2020 even though they failed to get out of the group stages. They head into this game against Israel on the back of two wins, where striker Lyndon Dykes found the net to secure the win. Sitting second in Group F, just one point ahead of their opposition, three points will be important to secure a chance in the playoffs next March as catching group leaders Denmark may be beyond the Scots now. That said, the Tartan Army will be behind Steve Clarke's men as they look to pick up another three points.
Andorra vs England - 19:45, Saturday 9th October
Euro 2020 finalists England currently top their World Cup Qualifying group, and barring any huge losses, they should qualify with ease for the finals next summer. Their opponents this weekend are Andorra, who currently sit fifth with only three points from a solitary win against San Marino. The reverse of this fixture just over a month ago saw Gareth Southgate's men win 4-0, with goals from Lingard, Kane and Saka sealing the comprehensive victory. With that in mind, there will be a huge expectation for England to win by another huge margin, and it seems as though Southgate has plenty of options at his disposal, with Tammy Abraham, Harry Kane and Ollie Watkins in the squad. Elsewhere James Ward-Prowse and Fikayo Tomori could also be given a chance in the starting line-up. Here at Bet UK, we expect goals in this game, which is why we're selecting an England victory and over 3.5 goals.
