Defeat Is Not An Option Say Bookies
William Hill are offering an enhanced price fourfold in preparation for Fridays Home Nations international games. Hills are offering 10/1 that Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland all avoid defeat.
Jamie Mackie is set to make his Scottish Debut and Hills make him a 7/2 shot to score first and are offering 15/2 that he scores anytime and Scotland win in Prague. Kenny Miller is the 9/4 favourite to score first and 50/1 to score a hat-trick on what will be his 50th Scottish cap.
The next week could go a long way to determine whether Scotland qualify for Euro 2012 and Hills are offering just 13/10 that Scotland get no points against Czech Republic and Spain. They are 33/1 to claim all six points. Scotland are 10/3 to qualify for Euro 2012.
Scotland have got a very difficult task ahead of them in the next two games and we certainly do not think that they will cause an upset, in what are the two most important games of Craig Leveins short Scotland career, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Wales are up against it in their bid to qualify for Euro 2012 and William Hill are offering 20/1 that they manage to emerge from the group. Brian Flynn has taken over the Wales job on an interim basis, however Hills are not expecting much of a honeymoon period and are offering just 9/4 that they get no points in the next two games although he is 6/5 to get the job on permanent basis.
Recently crowned Welsh footballer of the year, Gareth Bale, is an 8/1 shot to get the first goal and 11/4 to score anytime.
Brian Flynn has been entrusted to guide Wales through two very tricky fixtures. Should his side show promise, he could well get the managers role permanently, said spokesman Joe Crilly.
