Scotland vs England Betting Tips; McGinn and Kane headline our 7/1 Bet Builder

Football Betting Tips for Scotland vs. England; Scotland hosts England in what is being called the 150th Anniversary Heritage Match, which is being played to celebrate the world’s oldest international football fixture. It’s effectively a friendly, but it’s also a good marker for both of these teams as they prepare for their likely participation in next summer’s Euro 2024 competition.  

  • Who - Scotland vs. England
  • Competition - 150th Anniversary Heritage Match
  • Where - Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland 
  • When - Tuesday, 12th September, 2023
  • Time - 7.45 pm BST

Okay, so it’s an international friendly match. But when Scotland and England meet in football, it’s rarely friendly.

Scotland have been undergoing a football renaissance in recent years under the leadership of Steve Clarke. The Tartan Army has won five from five in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, including a 2-0 win over Spain. And as a result, are now all but certain to take their place at the Euros in Germany next summer.

England drew their last match 1-1 with Ukraine, which was held in Poland. The performance from the Three Lions drew its usual level of criticism of manager Gareth Southgate’s squad and team selections, tactics, and substitutions, etc.

But in fairness to Southgate, it was the first time they have dropped points in the Euro 2024 qualifiers. Before Saturday’s draw, they had won four from four. This includes a 2-1 win away in Italy in the opening match of the qualifying process.

Scotland vs England Betting

This match will probably be used as an opportunity for Steve Clarke and Gareth Southgate to experiment, and give squad players a run out. There will be an emphasis on winning. But the bigger picture will probably take precedence, with both managers casting at least one eye on next summer. 

  • Scotland 7/2
  • Draw 5/2
  • England 7/10

As such, the best football betting sites make the visitors their favourites to win at 7/10, with another win for the in-form Scots at 7/2, and the draw at 5/2.

Scotland vs England Betting Tips 

With this being a friendly, and there being an element of the unknown about it, we are leaving the match winner market alone and looking at a Bet Builder for our football betting tips

John McGinn to be booked is 10/3, and with the Aston Villa man likely to be charging around like a mad man, we think that looks good value.

Harry Kane to score or assist is 11/10. The England captain looks a certain starter. He set up Kyle Walker’s goal on Saturday with an exquisite pass and he brings far more to the England team than just goals. 

Combining the two bets gives us football betting odds of just over 7/1.
