Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Maybe it'd be too strong to say that we expect John Caulfield and Keith Long to batten down the hatches here, but we do not expect a flood of goals as Galway and Waterford go head-to-head. The statistics belowsuggest there will be under 2.5 goals (i.e. 2 goals of fewer in total), and we're saying that looks like a strong prediction. With best odds of 1.73 available on under 2.5 goals and no obvious match winner in sight, that's the bet we'd advise you go for.
