Bet of the weekend

Bray Wanderers to beat UCD at 7/4

Jason Byrne is in terrific form for the Seagulls, and could be set to reach 200 League of Ireland goals. He won't get many easier games than against the struggling Students, and Bray Wanderers should have enough to see off their oppponents at the UCD Bowl.
