Friday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Friday's internationals.
Wales to beat Azerbaijan & under 2.5 goals (19:45)
Wales have won back-to-back home games, beating both Slovakia and Trinidad and Tobago 1-0.
They have scored more than one goal in just one of their last 15 competitive matches, but are still worth backing to take three points against considerably worse opposition.
Azerbaijan have lost four of their last five matches and won just one of their last 15 qualifiers – a victory against San Marino two years ago.
Harry Wilson (Wales) to score v Azerbaijan (19:45)
Wilson has already scored twice for Bournemouth this season, and can bring that form to the international stage.
He ranks fifth for shots per game in the Premier League outside the Big Six so far this term.
Azerbaijan have conceded 14 goals in their last five games.
BTTS in Slovakia v Croatia (19:45)
This is a huge price, given both teams’ recent BTTS records.
Slovakia have scored in 14 consecutive home matches, with BTTS landing in six of their last eight.
Croatia have both scored and conceded in eight on the bounce.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Germany v Netherlands (19:45)
Germany come into this in excellent attacking form, having netted 10 goals in two games against Estonia and Belarus during the June international break.
Joachim Low’s side won 3-2 at the Johan Cruyff Arena in the reverse fixture in March, while the two teams also drew 2-2 in the Nations League last November.
The Netherlands have only failed to score once in their last 12 matches, with four of their last five also tipping the 2.5 goals mark.
Russia to beat Scotland (19:45)
Russia are second in Group I and have won three straight games, with their only defeat in qualifying coming away to leaders Belgium in March.
Stanislav Cherchesov’s side hammered Kazakhstan 4-0 away in March as part of that sequence – a fixture that Scotland lost 3-0.
The Tartan Army have been unconvincing in their opening four group games, with their six points coming from 2-1 and 2-0 victories against Cyprus and San Marino respectively.
