Euro DrawsBy: Myles | September 3rd, 2010
my ongoing experimentation with soccer betting continues and I think for the month of September I will playing more draws.
Anwyays so/so start to September going 1-1 in US Open cup plays, as Columbus didn’t win until Extra Time, but I’m taking my shot with some draws in Euro Qualifying
Lithuania v Scotland (Euro Qual)
Bookmaker/Price 5Dimes @ +229
Whether international or club, Scottish teams are known for their poor play on the road. However after losing Norway back in 2009 in World Cup qualifying they put in a decent 2-0 performance over Macedonia and only loss 1-0 to the Netherlands.
The crowd at Lithuania will be tough, but this is a Scottish team with a new focus and they will play defensively in an attempt to sneak out with 1 point.
Iceland v Norway (Euro Qual)
Bookmaker/Price 5Dimes @ +231
When these played in World Cup qualifying both matches ended in Draws, that doesn’t necessarily mean that a third will occur, but draw backers can take some solace in some key offensive players missing on both sides of the ball
Norway will not have Carew, while Iceland will be without the services of Gudjohnsen
Norway has more depth and talent, but usually a road favorite missing some offesnive fire power is a good time to take the draw.
