Over 1.5 goals at Waterford vs Finn Harps 4/11 for Friday’s Irish Premier Division contest
Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
In what could turn out to be a real six-pointer at the foot of the Premier Division table, Waterford will host the Finn Harps on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, last seen having to settle for a single point, Waterford still find themselves in an uphill battle if they’re to extend on their Premier Division status. In their 29 top-flight matchups so far this season, they have recorded 10 wins, three draws and 16 defeats, scoring 26 and conceding 47 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 33 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat four points adrift in the relegation play-off spot, it should also be noted that Waterford hold the second-worst defensive tally in the division. However, as for their recent run of results, despite playing out a 1-1 draw away at Sligo Rovers, Friday’s hosts have lost just one of their last seven matchups across all formats. Likewise, it’s also worth highlighting that the relegation scrappers have seen eight of their last nine contests finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, also having to settle for just a single point last time out, the Finn Harps still find themselves firmly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone. In their 29 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have landed 10 wins, seven draws and 12 defeats, scoring 33 and conceding 40 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 37, they open this weekend’s fixtures holding a four-point buffer over Friday’s opponents and slipping into the relegation play-off spot. As for their recent run of results, last seen earlier in the month playing out a 2-2 draw against Dundalk on home soil, the Harps have won just one of their previous six matchups across all formats. Likewise, with each of their last seven fixtures finishing with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
