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 for Thursday's internationals.
Poland (-2) to beat Latvia (19:45)
Poland have won four of their six Euro 2020 qualifiers so far, but this tip is all about Latvia.
Thursday’s hosts are dreadful, conceding 21 goals and just scoring one on their way to losing their last six matches.
They have lost by three or more goals in three of their last four home games – against Georgia, Israel and Slovenia.
Russia to beat Scotland to nil (19:45)
Russia came from behind to beat Scotland 2-1 at Hampden Park last month, but should have no such difficulties at home.
Stanislav Cherchesov’s side have won five in a row and are unbeaten in six at home, keeping five straight clean sheets.
Scotland have lost to nil three times already during this qualification campaign, including away to 116th-ranked Kazakhstan.
Slovakia to beat Wales & under 2.5 goals (19:45)
Wales have won back-to-back group games, but their dreadful away form suggests that run is about to end.
Ryan Giggs’ side have lost four of their last five matches on the road, with all but one of their last six away trips producing two or fewer goals.
Slovakia lost 4-0 to Croatia in their last home game, but had won three on the spin prior to that.
Eran Zahavi (Israel) to score v Austria (19:45)
Zahavi bagged a brace for Guangzhou R&F in his last appearance to maintain an extraordinary recent record.
That took his tally to 34 goals in his last 27 matches for club and country.
The Israeli striker has netted 11 in his last eight internationals, including two hat-tricks.
Bruno Petkovic (Croatia) to score v Hungary (19:45)
Petkovic has scored in two of his last three appearances for Croatia.
The striker has also scored in two of his last four outings for Dinamo Zagreb, including the winner in Saturday’s 1-0 victory against Slaven Koprivnica.
Hungary are poor defensively away from home, conceding eight goals in their last four against Estonia, Slovakia, Azerbaijan and Montenegro.
