Republic of Ireland face two pivotal games in their quest to qualify for Russia 2018, starting with the visit of Moldova to Dublin on Friday evening.
Martin O'Neill's side are huge favourites to get the three points that would set up a blockbuster "winner-takes-all" clash with Wales on Monday in Cardiff.
Paddy Power price Ireland at just 1/8 (1.12) to secure victory at the Aviva Stadium, a quote that will be much too short for most punters to consider getting involved with, even against a side bottom of Group D with just two points to their name so far.
Anyone without an account though, can take advantage of a huge 16/1 (17.0) on a home win when opening a new account. Considering the original price indicates above an 88% chance of the hosts coming out on top, this double figure quote is expected to prove extremely popular with punters.
Simply register through the link provided, place your first bet on Ireland at the usual price shown on site and if, as expected, they win the game, then your returns will be topped up to the value of a 16/1 (17.0) selection. £1 max stake. Winnings paid in free bets, T&Cs apply.
Moldova have simply been outclassed in this campaign, conceding 20 goals in just eight matches thus far. The reverse fixture almost a year ago to the day finished 3-1 to the Boys in Green and with home advantage and realistic hopes of a play-off spot, there are few reasons to oppose O'Neill's men making the perfect start to this double header.
The visitors have played four matches on the road in this group, losing 4-0 in Cardiff, 2-0 to Austria and 3-0 to Serbia. The solitary point away home came courtesy of a 1-1 draw against Georgia and that was the only time they’ve managed to find the net.
Wales play Georgia in the early kick off but will be without superstar Gareth Bale, who will be missing for both Friday's game and Monday's clash against Ireland.
That should only add further hope to Ireland's cause, but first they must see off Moldova and 16/1 (17.0) looks a fantastic opportunity for those who want to cheer on O'Neill's side knowing that there's a much bigger potential return than the usual price would allow.

Bookmakers have suspended betting on Martin O'Neill succeeding Nigel Pearson as Leicester City manager after several 'four-figure bets' were placed backing the Republic of Ireland boss.
O'Neill previously managed the Foxes from 1995-2000, guiding them to promotion to the Barclays Premier League and two League Cup triumphs.
And after Pearson's exit in the wake of the 'racist' orgy scandal that clouded the club's post-season tour of Thailand, the Northern Irishman is now the favourite to make a surprise return.

The Northern Irishman is currently managing the Republic of Ireland in European Championship qualifying
William Hill pulled the market for Leicester's next manager on Friday after punters backed O'Neill in from a price of 10/1 at the start of the day to 1/4.
Bob Bradley, the former United States coach now with Norwegian club Stabaek, Bolton Wanderers' Neil Lennon and ex-Everton and Portsmouth player Pedrag Radosvljevic are among those thought to be in the running for the role.RELATED ARTICLES Share this article
Former Holland coach Guus Hiddink had been approached to take an advisory role but is understood not to be keen on the position.
'There are some people out there who seem convinced that O'Neill is very close to getting the job if he hasn't accepted the role already,' William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said.
Leicester supporters hold up banners urging O'Neill not to leave when he was linked with Leeds in 1998
O'Neill last managed in the Premier League with Sunderland in 2013 before taking the Ireland job
O'Neill, 63, is currently in charge of the Republic of Ireland who sit fourth in European Championship qualifying group D behind Poland, Germany and Scotland after taking nine points from six games.
He last managed in the Premier League with Sunderland in 2013 and has previously taken charge of Aston Villa, Celtic and Norwich City.RELATED ARTICLES Share this article Share or comment on this article Most watched Sport videos MOST READ SPORT

The former Sunderland boss had shared favouritism with Mick McCarthy over the last few weeks but attracted a surge of interest on Friday morning, with his price plummeting amid a flurry of significant bets.
The FAI has been searching for a new boss following Giovanni Trapattoni's departure, but media reports are now suggesting their new man could be in place early next week.
Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "Having held a fairly balanced book on the next Republic of Ireland manager, we suddenly saw a surge of bets on O'Neill getting the post on Friday morning.
"Regardless of how much we shortened our odds the money kept coming, so we have been forced to suspend the market."
Mexico v Republic of Ireland. International Friendly
MetLife Stadium, New Jersey. Friday 2 nd June. 01:00
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Next Friday morning’s meeting of Mexico and the Republic of Ireland at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey is billed as an international friendly but should be anything but that. Both sides are gearing up to crucial World Cup qualifying games in the following nine days and Friday’s clash is unlikely to see either side field an experimental team. With that in mind, a full-blooded encounter can be expected which should provide a good betting medium as opposed to a run of the mill end of season game.
Mexico are clear favourites to win at short odds of 8/13 which is probably a fairly accurate reflection of their chances. Currently top of the qualification table for the 2018 World Cup, Mexico face the USA in a World Cup qualifier a week after this Friday’s match where a win would virtually seal their place in Russia next year. The Mexicans remain unbeaten in four qualifiers to date with three games ending in victory and are likely to field a full or near full-strength team with the USA game just seven days away. Having won seven and drawn two of their last ten international games (including friendlies), Mexico are a very capable team but not unbeatable as was shown in their most recent outing when defeated 2-1 by Croatia. Without doubt Mexico’s standout player at present is Javier Hernandez and the former Manchester United striker is the one who is most likely to take advantage of any Irish defensive errors having scored twice in his last three international appearances.
If anything, this Friday’s friendly has more significance for the Republic of Ireland. This is the first of two friendly games in three days (Ireland play Uruguay on Sunday) and both games are in preparation for a World Cup qualification showdown with Austria on Sunday week. Manager Martin O’Neill has left some of his first choice players out of this game and brought in some new recruits who could make their debuts in Friday’s game. However, wholesale changes in personnel or system are unlikely with the Austrian encounter on the horizon and the last thing Ireland want or need is an embarrassing defeat even in a friendly international. Striker David McGoldrick looks a certain starter up front and is probably the Republic’s best chance for a goal although a strike from veteran midfielder Wes Hoolahan looks a great bet at bigger odds.
Neither team will want to lose on Friday night and a drawn game is probably the most sensible bet at around 27/10. Having said that, however, there could be a few goals in the match and a chance is taken on the Republic of Ireland coming out on top at a big price of 18/5.
