Bale turned up to Wales camp on Monday, despite missing Madrid's game against Espanyol.
Two wins would nearly certainly guarantee Wales a play-off place next month, although favourable results in other groups could see four points being enough.
Scotland are a great bet at 7/5 with Paddy Power, while I also like the 3/1 about Leigh Griffiths scoring in a home success.
Bale remains the team's inspiration, yet despite being its top scorer in qualifying with four goals, he hasn't reached the heights of Euro 2016 qualifying when he netted seven of Wales' 11 goals. "I thought we did well and we managed to get that win", Lawrence, 23, told Sky Sports. A point would be OK but we'll go for three points.
Chris Coleman said his team could win without Bale and, though there were a couple of hairy moments, they deservedly did so for the first time since October 2013.
Otherwise, it could come down to Monday's meeting between Wales and the Republic in Cardiff.
Finally, I picked the wrong centre-back when I chose Clark for the first goal in Georgia last month and Duffy popped up to put his side ahead early on.
Coleman has painful memories of his last visit to Tbilisi as he was part of a Wales team thumped 5-0 by Georgia in 1994. They must take at least four points from the games against Georgia and the Irish to have any chance of qualification. "We always seem to play other countries who are involved and celebrating - but we welcome the pressure".
Liverpool's Ben Woodburn is just 17, but his wondrous 25-yard goal in last month's 1-0 defeat of Austria revived Wales' qualifying campaign, and it may be time for Coleman to play a joker in someone of school age who has played just 44 minutes of senior club football this season. "I am absolutely thrilled for him".
"I think it will be a sensational atmosphere", said Coleman.
Burnley's Sam Vokes, who was preferred up front to Hal Robson-Kanu, came close to a breakthrough when he got in front of his marker but steered a close-range shot narrowly wide of the post.
"There was nothing against Tom, he has done good work for us".
