Craig Levein’s squad travel to the States minus big names and face a USA side in great form.
The United States have won four games in a row, most recently in Italy this February.
Jurgen Klinsmann’s team defeated the Azzurri 1-0 in Genoa thanks to a Clint Dempsey goal, and with the Fulham man available again, the home side look well placed to win at odds of 13/20.
Interestingly, three of those four USA victories were 1-0 wins. The odds are 11/2 for the States to win by that scoreline for the fourth match in a row.
With the Scots scoring just six goals in five games, the States could well keep the Scottish attack at bay.
Scotland, on the other hand, have won just one of their last three games, a narrow 2-1 win against Cyprus. The Scots are given odds of 17/4 to end the season with a win, but they are without Charlie Adam, James Morrison and captain Darren Fletcher for this trip so may struggle to find the back of Tim Howard’s net.
The Everton keeper kept an impressive 12 clean sheets in this season’s Premier League and is priced at 6/5 to pick up another one in Jacksonville.
It should also be noted that in nine of their last ten matches, the USA have conceded fewer than two goals. With the Scots scoring just six goals in five games, the States could well keep the Scottish attack at bay.
That could make for a low-scoring affair, so a bet on there to be fewer than 2.5 goals could be wise at 83/100.
The sides last met in 2005 in Glasgow. The result that day was 1-1 and if this weekend’s match were to be another draw, new customers to bwin.com could win £87.50 from their free £25 bet for joining, given the 5/2 odds for neither side to win.
However, the USA’s form suggests they’ll ease to victory in a low-scoring clash.
Recommended bet: USA to win 1-0 @ 11/2
