Thursday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview. The five-fold is available at 24/1.
BTTS in North Macedonia v Kosovo (19:45)
BTTS had landed in eight of North Macedonia’s last 12 matches.
That run includes back-to-back Nations League games against Georgia and Armenia in the last international break.
Kosovo have also been involved in back-to-back BTTS matches, while both teams have bagged in five of their last six on the road.
Scotland to beat Israel (19:45)
Scotland took four points from their Nations League games against Czech Republic and Israel in the previous international break.
Steve Clarke’s side have won four and drawn one of their last five matches, while they have managed one victory and one draw in their last two matches against Israel.
Israel have won one of their last eight, against Latvia last October.
BTTS in Norway v Serbia (19:45)
Norway come into this having thumped Northern Ireland 5-1 away last time out, meaning BTTS has been a winner in nine of their last 12 matches.
In-form Erling Haaland, who has scored eight goals in seven matches for club and country this season, is joined in the squad by Alexander Sorloth, who netted 26 for Trabzonspor last term, so goals should never be far away.
Both teams have also scored in nine of Serbia’s last 12 games, so this represents decent value at close to evens.
Belgium to beat Ivory Coast & over 1.5 goals (19:45)
Belgium hammered Iceland 5-1 at home last time out to extend their winning streak to 12 matches.
Roberto Martinez’s side haven’t lost any of their last 21 home games and have scored at least five goals in each of their last three.
Ivory Coast were beaten 2-1 by Ethiopia in their last away game and have lost their last two on the road.
England to win to nil (20:00)
Wales come into this in decent form, having beaten Bulgaria and Finland in their last two matches, but are likely to suffer from the absence of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey here.
Ryan Giggs’ side are certain to lose some attacking impetus without their two best players and have lost seven of their last 14 matches without Bale.
England have won four of their last five matches, keeping clean sheets in each of them, and should have enough to see this bet through even with what is likely to be an experimental XI.
