Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 3/10 @ 888sport
In a battle at the foot of Ireland’s Premier Division on Monday evening, Drogheda will host UC Dublin for what could be an enjoyable affair.
Starting with the hosts, managing to extend on their FAI Cup run last time out, Drogheda have managed to find somewhat of a recent boost. In their 24 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, eight draws and 10 defeats, scoring 24 and conceding 37 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 26, they open Monday’s fixtures sat eighth in the standings and holding a commanding 14-point buffer from dropping into the relegation play-off spot. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 5-1 victory against First Division outfit Athlone, Drogheda have lost just a pair of their previous 10 matchups across all formats. However, it should also be highlighted, Monday’s hosts have seen six of their last eight outings finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, while UC Dublin might have also extended on their own FAI Cup run last week, it appears they’re freefalling their way out of Ireland’s top-flight. In their 24 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded just two wins, six draws and 16 defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 49 in return. Along with managing to muster just a points tally of 12 and opening Monday’s fixtures sat bottom of the table, it should also be noted that UCD hold the worst-defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 3-0 victory against lower league Cockhill, UC Dublin have won just a pair of their last 10 matchups across all formats. Likewise, with nine of those 10 fixtures finishing with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
