Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals

There is 63% chance of Derry and Drogheda no more than 3 goals combined during this Premier Division match according to our predictive algorithm and, in the absense of a strong favourite in the WDW market, we think that's where the smart money should go. Our calculations are made based on latest form, historical head-to-head (H2H) statistics and the view of the betting market, and you can get it at top odds of 1.46.
