Saturday Sports Multiple: A Scotland win the headline in a 25/1 weekend wager

Steve Clarke, Scotland
Scotland can take another step towards World Cup qualification on Saturday

Pandora Hughes has lined up another weekend multiple and she's counting on Scotland securing another win on Saturday...

“Scotland haven’t always been impressive during this campaign, but they’ve only lost once – away to Denmark – and their win over Austria has positioned them as clear second favourites in Group F with four games to go.”

Bet 1: Back Scotland to beat Israel at 9/10

Last month's 1-0 win over Austria was another indication that Scotland are an improving side under Steve Clarke and they should pick up another three points on Saturday to maintain their strong World Cup qualification challenge.

Scotland haven't always been impressive during this campaign, but they've only lost once - away to Denmark - and their win over Austria has positioned them as clear second favourites in Group F with four games to go.

Israel can point to two wins in the last six editions of this fixture, but both of those wins came on home soil, while Scotland have only lost two of their last eleven home games. With Scott McTominay and Callum McGregor returning, this is a strong Scotland squad and I'm banking on them to pick up the points here.

Bet 2: Back Bayside Boy to win the Dewhurst Stakes at 7/2

It's one of the most prestigious two-year-old races of the season and this year's Dewhurst has a hot favourite in the form of Native Trail.

The Oasis Dream colt is three from three, including an impressive win in the National Stakes last month, and it is hard to argue with the form on paper. But there is little value left in that price, so at bigger odds, Bayside Boy is worth considering.

He hasn't looked quite as impressive as the favourite so far, but he was running on nicely when winning the Champagne Stakes last time and his pedigree suggests he has more improvement to come than Native Trail. Having shown he can handle a little cut in the ground, Bayside Boy looks a good bet at his current price.

Bet 3: Back Azerbaijan to draw with Republic of Ireland at 21/10

The last time these sides met, in Dublin, it took an 87th minute Shane Duffy goal to rescue a point for Ireland and I'm expecting a similar outcome on Saturday.

Azerbaijan are a limited team, and have already been eliminated from World Cup qualification, but they can be stubborn opponents, and in any case, Ireland can't claim to be much better than their rivals, based on recent form.

Stephen Kenny is attempting to produce a more progressive style of play, but the lack of quality in the Ireland squad is making a mockery of the manager's ambitions. They are averaging a goal a game while not looking secure at the back, and I think the home side can seal Ireland's qualification fate by earning a draw here.
