Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

A tight, highly tactical defensive battle could be in store as Shelbourne and Waterford go head-to-head, with almost nothing between the teams in defence, making it difficult to predict who will win. The statistics do not give us any clear conclusion in that regard, but they are pointing strongly towards there being 2 goals or fewer in the fixture. That prediction is available at best priced odds of 1.57 with the bookies, so we're making under 2.5 goals our tip of the day for this tie.
