Northern Ireland only need a point from Monday’s clash with the Czech Republic to secure a top-two finish in their World Cup group but we’re backing them to go one better.
Michael O’Neill’s team have already set a new record for consecutive wins after four straight victories and appear determined to maintain the momentum.
We’re taking 29/20 they extend that hot streak to five wins in our Northern Ireland vs Czech Republic betting predictions.
A Look At Northern Ireland’s Betting Odds
Friday’s 3-0 triumph in San Marino followed previous wins over Norway, New Zealand and Azerbaijan, with no goals conceded during that sequence.
In fact, only Germany have scored against the men in green after seven qualifiers, including a goalless draw in Prague 12 months ago.
They are still five points adrift of Die Mannschaft and almost certainly just chasing a place in the play-offs but another positive result here would see them close in on achieving that feat.
Having performed with credit at Euro 2016, the opportunity is there to reach consecutive major tournament finals for the first time.
“We want to make history,” declared Charlton striker Josh Magennis, who bagged a brace in Serravalle on Friday.
“This squad is a stand-out squad and people in the future who are trying to get to where we’ve been, we want to make sure they have to go a long way to beat it.”
Looking at the Northern Ireland vs Czech Republic odds, we like 29/10 for the hosts to oblige by a one-goal margin.
A Look At Czech Republic’s Betting Odds
The Czech Republic showed plenty of spirit against Germany after going behind early on, with Vladimir Darida eventually levelling the scores 12 minutes from time.
However, there was late heart-break for Karel Jarolim’s side as Mats Hummels headed in a winner in the closing stages of that Prague contest.
The Czechs were on a four-match unbeaten run in this group but there has to be fears that such a shattering loss will have a lasting effect and carry over into this Belfast battle.
The visitors must also chase the game at Windsor Park, which may leave them open to counter-attacks, so 18/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals gets the nod in our Northern Ireland vs Czech Republic betting tips.
