Scotland v Rep of Ireland tips
Scotland take on the Republic of Ireland at Celtic Park in a crucial Euro 2016 qualifier on Friday and the game is televised live on SkySports 5 from 7.45pm.
It's an interesting venue for the Scots to host this game given Celtic's Irish links, but no doubt the Tartan Army will ensure a typically Scottish welcome for their visitors.
Ireland are second in qualifying Group D, on the same seven points as leaders Poland, with Germany and Scotland both on four points - and a win for Ireland would go a huge way to seeing them qualify to the finals from this six team group. The top two sides are assured their place in France and William Hill offer 6/4 on Ireland and 2/1 on Scotland 'to qualify'.
Scotland came agonisingly close to beating Poland last time (2-2), while they only went down to the World Champions 2-1, and we feel that they will edge this game. Gordon Strachan has instilled much needed belief and resolve to the national side and they look an entirely different proposition to the team that played in the World Cup qualifying games.
Ireland have failed to score in four of their last six away games and so the odds of 29/20 with Ladbrokes on Scotland keeping a clean sheet look fair value, while we also suggest backing Scotland 'to win to nil' at best odds of 5/2, also with Ladbrokes.
Steven Naismith scored for Scotland against Poland and he has been among the goals for Everton recently too - he is a massive 11/4 with Paddy Power to score at any time in this game (as short as 7/4 elsewhere).
Finally, let’s go for a low scoring game - five of the last six games between these two sides have seen less than 3 goals and you can back 'Under 2.5 Goals' at 8/15 and a 1-0 home win at 6/1 - both with BetVictor.
