A crucial match in the Irish Premier Division between two teams who many predicted would be near the bottom of the table is due to take place at Dalymount Park as Bohemians prepare to host Shelbourne.
Both teams enter this matchup locked together in the league with Bohemians in 6th and Shelbourne in 7th. The two in their last matches suffered differing fortunes with Bohemians losing narrowly to defending champions Shamrock Rovers with Shelbourne managing to salvage a late draw against Dundalk. In what is a close betting contest it’s Bohemians who are the slight bookies favourites. We think this could be a close game and instead will try and take some value by backing Shelbourne in a double chance. To win or tie the Premier Division new boys are priced at 5/6 and we think that could be a sensible way to play here.
Under 2.5 goals
Neither side have been particularly expansive at either end of the pitch this season with both teams having only seen over 2.5 goals occur once so far in their respective league games. It’s a bit early in the season to call this a must win match but the loser of this match will find themselves towards the bottom and part of an early relegation battle that they won’t want any part of. This is a match that neither side will want to lose and because of this it might make sense to side with this match being a low scoring contest.
Half time result
Considering how tight this game could be it could well be worth siding with the game being a draw at half time. Both teams will want to do their very best in avoiding a defeat and with goals hard to come by backing the draw at half time could be the right way to play.
