World Cup 2018 Betting Predictions

The Czech Republic impressed in a home loss against Germany on the weekend but that loss that means that they have to go to Windsor Park on Monday and bag themselves three points. So they will be desperate and hungry for a win in this one. Northern Ireland needs just a point to secure themselves second place in the group behind Germany, closing the door on the challenge of the Czech Republic. Will they be able to hold out for that precious point against a side who will have to turn up and play?

Northern Ireland vs Czech Republic Betting Tips

Northern Ireland have a big night ahead of them as they try and earn one point that will get them at least the play-off place in the group. That’s all they need and because one of their two remaining games after this one is against Germany, there is an urgency for them to get the job done. At Windsor Park in the group, Northern Ireland have beaten Norway, Azerbaijan and San Marino, scoring 10 unanswered goals in all of those matches. They have only conceded the two goals in total in their seven qualification games so far so they have been fully on point. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is trading at a price of 8/15 as you would expect a tight scrap in this one. Northern Ireland have failed to beat the Czech Republic in any of their five previous clashes (D3 L2) and each of the last three between these two have all ended in a 0-0 draw.

A 0-0 draw in the bet365 correct score market for this latest meeting fetches a price of 11/2 with only the 1-1 draw coming in at a shorter price of 5/1. So just a point, can the Irish get it? While they have done well in front of goal against the bottom sides in the group, including their 3-0 win at San Marino on the weekend, getting on the board against the Czech Republic is going to be a much tougher thing to pull off. In the anytime goalscorer market, Kyle Lafferty is a 2/1 option with Conor Washington at 3/1. With their win over San Marino on Friday, Northern Ireland won four games on the bounce for the first time in their history. They are currently looking to qualify for their second successive major tournament. They are aiming for their first World Cup Finals appearance since 1986.

Both teams not to score at bet365 in this one is a price of 4/6. So what really makes the visitors dangerous in this one is that they have nothing to lose. They have to go out and win this away game to keep their qualification hopes alive. So they will turn up and bust a gut for that. They played pretty well on the weekend in a 2-1 home loss against Germany and so will be a threat. Away from home though in the qualification group, the Czech Republic have only posted a W1 D1 L1 record, part of an overall return of W2 D3 L2 in the group so far. Their only away win happened, as expected, out at San Marino. So they haven’t been brilliant on the road at all, but again, the situation is forcing their hand of having to attack. Jan Limit and Michal Krmencik are joint 13/5 outright favourites in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. The Czech Republic have gone just W2 D2 L2 in their last six games, and are winles in their last three. Can they keep their qualification hopes alive?
