Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Maybe it'd be too strong to say that we expect John Russell and Alan Reynolds to park the bus here, but we do not expect a glut of goals as Sligo and Bohemians go head-to-head. The stats 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 1.67 available on under 2.5 goals and nothing too eyecatching in the full time result market, that's the bet we recommend.

Goal Statistics

Goals have been an issue for Sligo Rovers of late. It has been 9 Premier Division matches since they last scored more than 1, and a PG of 1.0 suggests they'll struggle to end that run on Friday evening against Bohemians Dublin FC.

An absolutely dismal PG of just 0.9 should cause concerns for Bohemians Dublin FC fans, as should a 6 Premier Division matches run in which they have failed to score more than 1 goal.
