You bet Champagne Charlie will set Nations Cup alight
The Carling Nations Cup starts tonight and William Hill make the Republic of Ireland their 11/10 favourites to win the tournament, Scotland are the 5/2 second favourites.
Scotland are playing Northern Ireland on Wednesday evening and William Hill make Scotland the 6/5 favourites to beat Northern Ireland who are 15/8.
The last time the two sides played, the pair played out a 0-0 draw, which is 6/1 to happen this time around, while Allan McGregor saved a David Healy penalty. Hills are offering 25/1 that the Scottish stopper saves a penalty from his new Rangers team-mate and 10/3 that a player is awarded a red card during the match.
