Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Under 2.5 goals as a betting market simply means there will only be a maximum of 2 goals scored in total by Galway and Drogheda during the traditional 90 minutes. It's a bet the statistics below and the odds both suggest is worth considering, and an outcome that we've seen these sides produce before. Without a strong favourite to win the game, our best bet prediction for this one is under 2.5.
