Dutch delight in Cardiff
Bet 1: Back Netherlands to win v Wales at 40/85 - KO 19:45
Wales have been celebrating one of the biggest sporting achievements in the nation's history. For the principality to be among Europe's 13 representatives at the World Cup finals is amazing, and the nail-biting nature of the 1-0 play-off final win over Ukraine in Cardiff merely added to the legend. Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey gave the performance of his life, Tottenham defender Ben Davies was a colossus, and Gareth Bale was predictably involved in the only goal.
However, the win will have been a draining experience emotionally and physically, and if Robert Page and his players celebrated properly, that will have taken its toll too. The Netherlands are rocking up on a high after smashing Benelux rivals Belgium 4-1, they are unbeaten in ten games, and coach Louis Van Gaal is unsurprisingly proving to be a big upgrade on the unconvincing Frank de Boer.
Wales will shuffle their pack, and I think the Dutch are fair favourites to maintain their 100% start to the Nations League.
Clarke's men to bounce back
Bet 2: Back Scotland -1 on the Handicap v Armenia at evens - KO 19:45 (live on Premier Sports 1)
Scotland have had a few days to process their failure to qualify for the World Cup, having been swept aside 3-1 by a technically-excellent Ukraine side at Hampden Park. This home game against Armenia should be the perfect way to respond, and it's worth remembering that Scotland have taken the Nations League incredibly seriously from the get-go. Steve Clarke's men ended the regular season World Cup qualifying campaign with six straight wins, and in the Nations League they have won four of their last five home matches.
Armenia secured a famous 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland last time out, but that owed more to Stephen Kenny's sides profligacy than any brilliance on their part. Without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Armenia lack star quality, and they have lost four of their last six away games. Those defeats include a 9-0 hammering in Norway and a 6-0 shellacking in Germany.
Fired up by failure, Scotland will want to put on a show, and I'll back them to win with room to spare.
Don't underestimate Ukrainian pride
Bet 3: Ukraine/Draw Double Chance v Republic of Ireland at 8/15 - KO 19:45
Ukraine fell agonisingly short of securing a place in the World Cup finals, and given the horrors unfolding day by day in their homeland, it's been a Herculean effort. The prevailing wisdom seems to be that Ukraine will be drained and won't take their remaining UNL matches seriously, but I'm not so sure.
Ukraine have a strong squad, and players like Mykhailo Mudryk and Artem Dovbyk have impressed as subs, so there's no reason why a few changes should suddenly make them vulnerable against a Republic of Ireland side that still hasn't won a single game in the Nations League. Stephen Kenny's side laboured to a 1-0 defeat in Armenia, and although his dream of playing progressive football is laudable, the project is yet to bear fruit. I'd be surprised if the hosts take all three points here.
