Sligo Rovers vs Dundalk: Top Free Betting Tips

After successive away defeats to Finn Harps and St Patrick's Athletic, Sligo Rovers return to Showgrounds for their next Premier Division outing. Their form at home has been impressive, winning two matches in succession and will be keen to extend their home winning streak when they host Dundalk FC on Saturday, 29 August. 

Sligo Rovers to Win

Sligo Rovers have conceded three defeats in the last five games but they have produced an acceptable momentum at home. The Bit O’Red registered four victories in the last five hosting attempts of Premier Divison. On the other hand, Dundalk has also been inconsistent and won only twice in the last five league outings. Back to H2Hs, the Lilywhites are also winless in the previous four encounters with Sligo Rovers and lost two of them. Hence, the Bit O’Red are considered to be the favourites to get a victory.

Over 2.5 Goals

Sligo Rovers have found the back of the net 11 times in the last five home league games and scored at least twice in four of them. On the contrary, Dundalk has also secured a total of eight goals in the last five attempts while leaking goals in four of the last five away outings. Moreover, three of the last four H2Hs between the two sides have ended with over 2.5 goals. Therefore, a high-scoring total will be expected in this encounter.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The front line of Sligo Rovers has managed to get the team on the score sheet in all of the last four home games and they also scored in four of the previous five hosting league games. However, Bit O’Red kept only one clean sheet in that course. In opposition, Dundalk has found the back of the net in six of the last five outings. Three of the last four H2Hs ended with BTTS outcomes and we see the same trend to be followed in this meeting.
