Our tipster Andrew Cunneen is full of the joys of play-off qualification.

Scotland Denmark Bet Builder


So, there it is – a Scotland play-off secured. It’s not often good things happen to Scotland. So let’s celebrate it. Seriously, think about it. Their two huge cinematic successes saw Mel Gibson as a Scottish hero who ends up being beheaded and Trainspotting, which, despite the title is far more sinister than someone waiting on Richard Branson to re-enter the rail market and paints Scotland in quite a bad light.

Cuisine? Sheep stomachs and deep frying your own Nan. Tourism? A big lake, but with a massive monster inside that won’t make an appearance – and don’t even start me on Balamory.


Still, at least the most famous tragedy of all-time isn’t about your political inefficiencies. No, you kept the Indyref for real life. Shakespeare actually reserved the written account of political failure for the Danes. A nation who have already qualified for Qatar.

So, what exactly is there to play for here? Well, nothing. But that makes it predictable, and with great transparency comes great opportunity. Here’s a Bet Builder to take advantage of professional footballers taking advantage of a night off.

Realistically, with both of these sides making presumed wholesale changes, and nothing to play for, don’t be surprised to see the ball move particularly slowly in midfield. The thing is – Scotland probably know that if they attempt to score, they’ll have to withstand actual attacks from the Danes and they really don’t need that on a freezing night in Edinburgh – back to full capacity or not.

Come to think of it, it’s more likely that everyone in the ground will be so p***ed, that they won’t even notice the result anyway. This one’s headed for a Draw.

Half-Time: Draw

I might sound like I’m doubling up here, but my thought process is sound, I believe. If there is to be a goal, the chances are that it’s reactive. This game will remain a stalemate until someone forces it not to be rather than both sides actively seeking it out.

For example, maybe Denmark land a free-kick on the edge of the box. Maybe someone leaves a leg in late. These generally occur when time is ticking down or legs become tired. There will be more chances of a goal in the second half of this game, so it’s best to keep the whistle onside with a Half-Time Draw.

Under 3.5 Goals

Under 3.5 Goals is hardly a seismic leg being added in, and really all we’re doing is eliminating the possibility of a 2-2 draw because Scotland scoring three times against Denmark’s U14s sounds far-fetched, let alone their actual senior side. But, it does drive the price up ever so slightly.

Andreas Skov Olsen to Have 2 or More Shots on Target

The only thing that makes this game entertaining is the blend of secondary players combined with youth. Denmark will be keen to have Andreas Skov Olsen play as many games as possible early in his career to get him accustomed to international football – and his presence means he’ll ultimately be shooting on-sight.

If Scotland do concede, I know where I’d be putting my money on in terms of the source. Andreas Skov Olsen to Have 2 or More Shots on Target rounds us off on Monday night.
