Despite going into the game on the back of four successive wins, St Patrick’s Athletic are billed as the underdogs as they head to Iceland.
The seven-time Irish champions face IBV Vestmannaeyjar in the first qualifying round for the UEFA Europa League and will be in confident mood given their current form.
After a 1-1 draw with Derry City on June 10th, the Dubliners have reeled off four wins, scoring nine goals and conceding just two in that time.
However, despite this run of form, the visitors are seen as slight outsiders, with bwin offering odds of 37/20 on the Super Saints heading back to Ireland with a win.
Conversely, IBV are priced at 27/20 to win, while the draw is seen as a 23/10 shot.
While Pete Mahon has seen his side produce some solid displays of late, opposite number Heimir Hallgrimson will also be in confident mood.
His charges have lost just one of their last five games, winning the other four, and have scored no less than 11 goals during that time.
With both sides boasting impressive goalscoring records, football betting enthusiasts could be tempted to place a wager on the number of goals the game is going to produce.
Backing the match to see more than four goals is available at bwin as an 11/5 shot, while fewer than four goals is priced at 31/100.
For the more conservative punters, more than two goals offers odds of 13/50 and fewer than two is priced at 5/2.
For Europa League betting enthusiasts with one eye on the next stage of the competition, there are also odds available on which of these two sides will progress to the next round.
The Icelandic outfit, who have won their domestic title three times and secured a landmark double in 1998, are seen as an evens shot to achieve the feat, while St Pat’s offer odds of 18/25 to advance to the second qualifying round.
