Double Chance – Draw of Waterford

We start with a low-stake tip because it is worth a shot and because Sligo Rovers are in bad shape. As we described above, Waterford has a lot to fight for. From a terrible team in the first half of the season, in the last 15 games, Waterford has 8 wins. While this may not sound like too much, remember that the team had 6 points in the 14th round. Now, before the 29th, Waterford has 32. Sligo Rovers, in turn, has lost 8 of its last 15 matches and is coming off two consecutive losses. We expect that Waterford will put up a fight and get at least a point here.

To Score In Half – Waterford to Score in 2nd Half

Waterford has proven to be efficient after half time. Most of the goals in their matches fall after the break and the team often scores even more than once. We believe that the match will not end at 0:0 and even if Sligo Rovers fail to score again, we see at least one hit by Waterford. We simply expect it to be after the break, as usual.

Most Corners Taken – Sligo Rovers

This market is not available on all betting sites but it can be found in most large bookies. If you get the chance, pick Sligo Rovers to take more corners than Waterford. The home team has done well in this manner and typically takes around 5 corners per match. Waterford, on the other end, doesn't take more than a couple of corners on average and especially away from home. There are several recent examples when the team had 0,1, or 2 corners total.
