Thursday Betting Guide: Our writers’ 5 best football tips 03 09 20

Under 2.5 goals in Bulgaria v Republic of Ireland (19:45)

This bet would have landed in 13 of Ireland’s last 15 matches, including each of their last six on the road.

Mick McCarthy’s side have scored just three goals in those six away games, failing to score more than once in all of them.

There has been a maximum of one goal in five of Bulgaria’s last six matches, with the only exception being a 6-0 defeat at home to England last October.

Faroe Islands to beat Malta (19:45)

These teams know each other well, having been paired together in Euro 2020 qualifying and the previous Nations League.

Faroe Islands won their two previous home games against Malta and should make it three on Thursday.

The visitors have lost nine straight matches and haven’t won a competitive away game in 19 attempts.

Finland to beat Wales (19:45)

This feels like a massive price for a side that have won nine of their last 10 home games, including victories over Greece and Bosnia.

Finland qualified automatically for the European Championships, finishing second in their group behind Italy, and have only lost one of their last 10 competitive matches at home.

Wales missed out on the Euros and their only away win in five came against Azerbaijan last November. They will have Gareth Bale available but, having started just once since mid-February, he is likely to be rusty.

BTTS in Germany v Spain (19:45)

Germany have found the net in each of their last 13 matches, and have scored 22 times in their last five at home.

BTTS has landed in three of their last four on home soil, including their 6-1 victory against Northern Ireland last time out.

Spain should also do their bit, having scored at least once in 40 straight matches – a run that stretches back to their 2-0 defeat against Italy in the last 16 of Euro 2016.

Kosovo to beat Moldova (19:45)

Moldova have lost 11 of their last 12 matches, with their only victory in that period coming against Andorra last June.

Their only other victories in their last 22 home games came against San Marino.

Kosovo came third in their Euros qualifying group after victories against Montenegro, Czech Republic and Bulgaria, while they also gave England a scare in a 5-3 defeat last September.
