Wales to beat Scotland 4/1

Even for a section as optimistic as this, it would have been difficult to back the 10/1 odds available on a draw between Finland and Spain. The 4/1 on Wales, however, was far less difficult.

Scotland had home advantage and the possibility of the dead cat bounce which usually goes with a new manager. The problem is that their players are still so poor.

Wales aren't world beaters, but, in Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, they at least have two competing at at a decent level. The difference in quality proved decisive in the end as Wales belied their odds to win 2-1.
