Scotland and Spain face off on Tuesday in a Group A showdown in the European Qualifiers at Hampden Park. 

Scotland vs Spain Odds

Scotland is the underdog sitting at +475 while Spain is the favorite sitting at -155. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals, with the over paying out at +105. 

Scotland Betting Preview

Scotland comes into this game tied for 1st place having picked up three points. On Saturday, Scotland faced off against Cyprus, and they were able to secure a 3-0 victory. John McGinn scored in the first 21 minutes and Scott McTominay scored two goals after the 87th minute. Scotland had 62 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Che Adams was hurt in the last game, and he’s not going to be able to go here. This is a big loss for Scotland and could be a big loss for Southampton if he’s out for a while. Lawrence Shankland has moved in, and he’s expected to get the start in this game. In this game, the defense is going to need to step up in a big way. 

Spain Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Spain, who sits tied for first place having picked up three points. On Saturday, Spain faced off against Norway, and they were able to secure the 3-0 victory. Dani Olmao scored in the 13th minute and Joselu scored in the 83rd and 85th minute. Spain had 64 percent of the possession and seven shots on target. Spain didn’t suffer any injuries in the last game, but there could be some changes made to the starting lineup. Iago Aspas and Gavi both could be moved to the bench after leaving the last game early. 

Shane’s Free Pick

This total is too low. I don’t trust Scotland’s defense, and they are going to struggle to slow down the Spain offense. Scotland’s offense did look good in the first game, and they are going to find a way to find the back of the net here. Look for 3 or 4 goals to be scored here, and this game is going to go over the total.
