Bet of the weekend

Sligo Rovers to beat Shamrock Rovers at 11/8

After their midweek European exit, league champions Sligo Rovers will now be able to focus all their attentions to defending their title. The Hoops will be a worthy opponent at the Showgrounds, but if the Bit o' Red are serious contenders, this is the kind of match they need to win.
