Ireland vs Scotland Bet Builder Tips
Callum Robinson to Score Anytime @ 3/1 on bet365
West Brom forward Callum Robinson is still searching for his first international goal since Ireland’s 3-0 away win in Luxembourg seven months ago, and is priced at 3/1 to find the back of the net against Scotland.
Robinson has featured in both of manager Stephen Kenny’s starting XIs during the current Nations League campaign, but has failed to make his mark in either game against Armenia and Ukraine.
There is no doubt surrounding the 27-year-old’s quality, and it is perhaps just a matter of seeing the ball find the net before the floodgates can open. Robinson tallied three goals and one assist across Ireland’s World Cup qualifying campaign in just five starts.
‘CR7’ is our pick to score on Saturday in Dublin.
James McClean to be Booked @ 9/4 on bet365
If you’re searching for a booking to add into your bet builder for this game, look no further than Wigan Athletic man James McClean.
The League One winner has not started either of the first two fixtures for Ireland, but with Kenny’s job potentially on the line we’re expecting an array of changes on Saturday – including McClean into the starting XI.
The 33-year-old picked up six bookings and one red card in Wigan’s successful league campaign this season, and is no stranger to a crunching 50-50 challenge. At 9/4, the Derry man is our choice to make his way into referee Marco Di Bello’s book.
Draw @ 2/1 on bet365
We’re rounding off our selections with Ireland and Scotland to share the points in Dublin.
The last time the pair met was in 2015 during the Euro 2016 qualification stages, and in typical fashion the sides played out a 1-1 draw – with a first-half strike from Jon Walters putting Ireland up at the break, before John O’Shea’s own goal levelled it up.
Ireland and Scotland both play a similar brand of football, and one that should present an even matchup this weekend. The visitors will carry the momentum following a 2-0 win against Armenia earlier this week, but the roar of the Dublin faithful should be enough to kick the hosts into gear.
At 2/1, there is plenty of value in this selection also.
