Northern Ireland v Israel Betting Odds*
Northern Ireland 11/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 10th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Northern Ireland News and Form
Northern Ireland were beaten 2-1 at home on the weekend as they played host to Bosnia in their opening Nations League fixture. So that leaves them in a tough spot with one home fixture having fallen by the wayside. They get a friendly fixture in next and probably a chance for them to get some of their squad players into action. Will Grigg got their goal on the weekend and he is at 9/3 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one with teammate Kyle Lafferty leading the way in the market.
Their result on the weekend leaves Northern Ireland with just the one win in their last eight games played now (D2 L5) so they are struggling for form at the moment. They are also just W1 L3 in their last four games at Windsor Park so they are just looking for that something extra at the moment. Under 1.5 goals for the game is at 1/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 10th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). It’s hard to see this game producing a lot of goals really, especially with it just being a friendly.
Israel News and Form
Israel took a defeat against Albania in their Nations League opener, going down 1-0 away from home. Israel lost six of their ten World Cup 2018 qualification matches, scoring an average of a goal per game. So they weren’t terribly competitive to be fair and their overall current form isn’t much to write home about. They are W1 L4 in their last five fixtures now, the lone success there coming in a 1-0 win at Liechtenstein in World Cup qualification. That is just two goals in their last five games which they have scored. All four defeats in that sequence were by a one-goal margin. Northern Ireland to win by a one-goal margin is at 13/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 10th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Northern Ireland v Israel Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between Israel and Northern Ireland since they were together in World Cup 2014 qualifying. Israel took four points from the two meetings on that occasion. Three of the last four games between the two countries have ended in a 1-1 draw. Just two of the previous nine have gone over 2.5 goals. Northern Ireland holds a W3 D5 L1 record against Israel.
Who will win – Northern Ireland v Israel Predictions
Northern Ireland couldn’t hold their ground against Bosnia on the weekend, but it will be a little easier to do so against Israel. This is likely to be a low scoring match up without question and we are going to back a narrow home in our Northern Ireland v Israel betting tips.
