England will be looking to pick up their second win of Euro 2020 when they take on Scotland on Friday at Wembley at 21:00 in a Group D encounter. The English are heavily favoured at odds of 1.30 to beat their traditional rivals, and we’re going to take a closer look at the match up, as well as our best bets in this Euro 2020 betting preview.
England v Scotland Current Odds
England off to a decent start
England got their Euro 2020 campaign off to a reasonably good start against Croatia last Sunday, winning 1-0 thanks to a second half goal from Rahim Sterling. England started that match with intensity but were then quickly bogged down by a tenacious Croatian midfield until the Sterling breakthrough.
A win for England will see them through to the next round before their final group stage match against the Czech Republic. With the talent available to them they’ll be confident of picking up a comfortable win against the Scots, it’s also worth noting that England have won their last 7 games on the trot, keeping a clean sheet in 6 of those matches.

Scotland are in for a struggle
Scotland went down 2-0 in a fairly tame fashion to a somewhat average Czech Republic side, a match that saw the Scots take a whopping 19 shots at goal, with only 5 of those being on target. They’ll need to be much more clinical in front of goal if they are to have any chance against England.
It’s a must win game for Scotland if they are to have any chance of making it through to the knockout round, and they’ll be heavily reliant on their fast wing backs and crossing game if they are to score against England. The Scots had managed to score in all of their previous 5 matches, prior to their loss against the Czechs.

Head to Head Statistics
With a rivalry going back 149 years there have been many a match between the two sides, so we’ll focus on the 4 matches within the last decade. England are undefeated in their last 4 matches against Scotland, scoring at least 3 goals in 3 of those matches, while the Scots have bagged a goal in 3 of their last 4 matches against England.
England v Scotland Euro 2020 Betting Tips
It’s hard to look past what should be a comfortable win for a talented English side against their northern rivals, especially when playing at Wembley. The odds on a straight England win are far too short at 1.30 to provide much betting value. If the opening matches are anything to go by then we should be in for an intensive start to the match, and we think that England will find the net in the first half and go on to win the match. We’ll be backing England to win HT/FT at 1.87.
