Derry City vs Drogheda Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (14/03/2022)

4th meets 8th in the Irish Premier Division as Derry prepare to host Drogheda. The two teams enter this match on the back of different results with the home side edging out Shelbourne 1-0, and Drogheda losing heavily 3-0 to Sligo. Both sides will want to pick up a vital three points here.

Handicap -1

It’s Derry who are the overwhelming favourites for this match up and it’s easy to see why, the home team are unbeaten this season whilst Drogheda have won just one of their matches this season. With Drogheda conceding three goals in the first half vs Sligo it might be worth backing the home side in the handicap at -1. With value a little hard to find in the match this could be a good play at the prices.

Over 2.5 goals

This is a match that usually sees goals with three of the last five games between the pair seeing over 2.5 goals. For Drogheda they comfortably have the worst defensive record in the league and it’s really hard to see them keeping the goals out. The away side have already seen over 2.5 goals in all but one of their matches so far this season and it could be another long day here.

Derry to score over 1.5 goals

Derry have only been able to score five goals in the four matches they have played so far this season and that’s a stat they will want to change. The home side have scored at least two goals in three of the last five meetings between the pair and it might be another bet worth backing.
