Scotland vs Denmark Tips: Best bets for Monday's World Cup qualifier
These two sides lead the way by some distance in Group F, with Denmark occupying the top spot having won all nine of their matches in qualifying.
Scotland’s most recent defeat came the last time they faced Denmark and since then they’ve put together a run of five victories, including four clean sheets. However, Monday’s opponents represent a big step in class after that run and Scotland will need to be at their best to get anything from the game.
The Dane’s have been the form team throughout qualifying. Not only have they won all their matches, but they’ve also scored a staggering 30 goals. They have already secured safe passage to next year's tournament, but the prize of finishing qualifying with a 100% record will be all the motivation they need as they head into the final game.

Scotland vs Denmark Odds
Despite Scotland’s good form, Denmark really does represent a tough test for the home side. In the reverse fixture, the Dane’s comfortably ran out 2-0 victors and I see no reason why they can’t put in a repeat performance here.
Scotland have won just one of the last five matches where they have gone off at a similar price to this, averaging under a goal a game.
Scotland really have nothing to lose in this game and they will be keen to put on a show for their fans in the final group game. Ultimately, I expect Denmark’s quality to show, but Scotland could cause them problems along the way.
Scotland average exactly 1 goal per game in their last ten matches, but the fact there is little risk for the home side should play into our hands here. The winning run that Steve Clarke’s men are on should also give them confidence that they can compete.
Surprisingly, Scotland won the corner count 5-2 when these two teams last met, however, the overall data suggests there is some value to be had in this bet. Scotland average two less corners per game than their opponents in the last five matches against similar opponents. Denmark average just under 2 more corners per game in their last five matches at similar odds.
As previously mentioned, Denmark have been free-scoring throughout qualifying and hopefully, they start quickly. Scotland will be up for the challenge in front of their own fans, but 33/1 is just too big for a team in the form that Denmark are in.
