Rovers look decent value to record cup success at home

Dundalk hoping to extend fine record at Tallaght

Shamrock Rovers have kept 11 clean sheets in their last 13 league games
1 of 1

Saturday's League of Ireland Cup final puts what could be, on current form, the best two teams in the country together, with an intriguing game in prospect at Tallaght Stadium.

This was not the easiest conundrum for the layers to evaluate as Shamrock Rovers are playing at their home ground, where Dundalk have an outstanding record. Moreover, the Lilywhites are in blistering form.

Rovers' dangerous attackers, especially Brandon Miele and Trevor Clarke, will ensure Dundalk have to defend well and there may be a bit of value in the Hoops at 15-8 draw no bet. They comfortably disposed of champions-elect Cork in their most recent home league game.

The four league games this weekend are all of huge consequence in the relegation battle. Bray Wanderers are outsiders at home to Limerick, which is questionable, particularly as the Bray players will be reeling after news that the police and FAI are investigating match-fixing allegations concerning their recent friendly defeat to Waterford.

Bray's odds relate to them seemingly having nothing to play for, but there is a great deal of professional and personal pride at stake, and Limerick generally have not been that good this season, and have certainly been inferior to Bray.

Galway and Derry look guaranteed to produce goals and 10-13 about both teams to net at Eamonn Deacy Park makes plenty of appeal, even though it was scoreless when they last met at the venue.
