Still with hope of winning the Six Nations title, Ireland will be looking to make sure they do their job against Scotland before the tournament concludes on Super Saturday with France against England.
The Irish have an impressive record against the Scots in recent years and will be eager to make sure they get the win to pile the pressure on France for the game in Paris.
Ireland vs Scotland Betting Odds
Scotland didn't lose a game to Ireland in their 12 meetings between 1989 and 1999 with the Scots winning 11 and drawing once.
The turn of the millenia seemed to change everything and since the tournament became the Six Nations in 2000 the Irish have dominated this fixture.
In their 22 Six Nations meetings to date, Ireland have won 18 of them, one of the reasons why they are firm favourites at 1/7 to win in Dublin on Saturday.
Scotland have proved on their day they can beat anyone but they will have to produce their performance of the tournament to win this weekend.
Gregor Townsend's side can be backed at 13/2 to win, while the first draw between these sides since 1994 is available at 50/1.

Ireland to win by 11-20 - BET NOW
Ireland have the structured game and physical presence at the breakdown to overpower Scotland in Dublin.
The Scots do have some attacking threats around the park and they should have some moments where they can get the Irish on the back foot.
However over the course of 80 minutes, Ireland should just have too much for Scotland and can earn the win to keep their Six Nations title hopes alive.
