Northern Ireland kick off their Nations League campaign by welcoming Bosnia to Windsor Park on Saturday afternoon.
Michael O’Neill’s side will be looking to return to winning ways following a draw and defeat on their summer tour of Central America.
Despite the teams not playing each other before, a home win looks a decent shout at 39/20 in our Northern Ireland vs Bosnia predictions.
A Look At Northern Ireland’s Betting Odds
The Green and White Army are without a win in their last two matches, although they did face difficult trips to sides that were preparing for the World Cup.
A goalless draw with Panama was followed by a 3-0 defeat to Costa Rica, but despite those results they should return to Windsor Park with confidence.
Northern Ireland’s home form is impressive after winning 10 of their last 14 matches, losing only to heavyweights Germany twice, Croatia and Switzerland.
O’Neill has ensured his side are strong defensively and that has reaped its rewards with eight clean sheets in those victories.
A Look At Bosnia’s Betting Odds
Despite having the likes of Edin Dzeko in their ranks, Bosnia failed in their mission to reach Russia 2018.
They finished third in Group H, behind Greece and Belgium, and have struggled in front of goal in recent outings.
Bosnia have managed just four goals in their last six games and that included a 3-1 win over South Korea.
Of Northern Ireland’s recent 10 home wins, five were secured by a scoreline of 1-0 or 2-0.
So adding that to the Dragons’ lack of goals, a result of 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 for the home side at 27/10 looks appealing in our Northern Ireland vs Bosnia predictions.
Costa Rica 3-0 NORTHERN IRELAND
South Korea 1-3 BOSNIA – Visca (3)
