Martin O'Neill has selected eight uncapped players in a new-look squad as he seeks to move on from his side's 5-1 play-off defeat to Denmark.
Despite this inexperience, you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) with bet365 on them putting that defeat behind them with an impressive victory in Antalya.
Three of the last four encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 11/5 (3.20) on offer on them cancelling each other out once again.
O'Neill's unfamiliar squad selection is partly due to an extensive injury list that includes Harry Arter, Liam Kelly, Rob Elliot, Jon Walters, Robbie Brady, and James McCarthy.
Opposite number Mircea Lucescu has omitted big names Arda Turan and Burak Yilmaz from his own squad, while offering a first call-up to rising star Abdulkadir Omur.
Inexperienced Boys in Green
While the new call-ups will add some much needed youthful exuberance to the ageing Boys in Green, they are likely to need some time to adjust to playing at this level.
West Ham defender Declan Rice is the only one of the six outfield players hoping to make their debut who plays for a top flight team, while only eight of the entire squad have reached double figures in international appearances.
Preview and predictions
Having lost just twice in 16 home games, Turkey therefore look like good value at 19/20 (1.95) to see off an inexperienced Irish team that has failed to win any of their previous nine friendly matches on the road.
