Irish Premier League action on Friday night as The Blues travel to the Bohs, with our tipster backing few goals with the away side to dominateLimerick travel to Bohemians this week with the home side still fighting to avoid relegation. Bohemians sit in 11th place, five points above Shelbourne in last, trailing Bray Wanderers above them by three points. Limerick are in town and unless they go on an exceptional run, will finish mid table come the end of the season.
Bohemians come into this match with only 14 points from 18 matches. Aaron Callaghan’s men have struggled this season, producing only two home wins in the league this campaign.
The Bohs have struggled for goals, scoring the same amount of goals as they have points, 14. Paddy Power rightfully price them as underdogs despite being at home, at 12/5 (3.40) to take a much needed three points.
Limerick are currently in a stick patch of form in the middle of the season. Stuart Taylor’s men had been on a run of only two defeats in 12 matches, but have lost three of their last four since the start of June.
Despite this current lapse in form, The Blues are secure in mid table in the Premier Division. Paddy Power price Taylor’s men as favourties at 11/10 (2.10) to win the match. The same firm price the draw at 11/5 (3.20).
With goals seemingly a problem for the home side, the bet of Both Teams To Score ‘No’ at 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power is a fantastic price.
It’s not just Bohemians who haven’t found the net in recent weeks, with Limerick failing to score in three of their last four matches. Had you backed this bet in five of each sides last six matches, the bet would have paid out.
For those looking for extra value, don’t be put off by Limerick’s latest form on the road. Despite being beaten in their last two away games to nil away from home, The Blues have been handy on their travels this season.
The two defeats were inflicted by teams higher than them in the league, with Limerick finding the net on seven occasions in their three away games previous to those losses. The handicap bet of Limerick -1 at 10/3 (4.33) seems like a fantastic price considering this bet would have paid out against Bohemians at home in their last four matches.
