Big things are expected of Bohs this season but they failed to register in their opener against Cork City.

That is no disgrace as not many teams will leave Cork with much more than their tail between their legs. Bohemians have an excellent chance to get their season on track with a home win over Sligo Rovers on Friday night.

It won’t be long before either or both of Kurtis Byrne and Ismahil Akinade register on the goal scorer charts. It could be this week with Sligo Rovers arriving a little depleted after two of their new signings, Kieran Sadlier and Craig Roddan, were sent off in their opening fixture.

The Bit O red where probably hoping that Jannai Gordon would fire them into Europe with his goal scoring potential this season. He didn’t get much chance with his teammates’ ill discipline costing them the match against Shamrock Rovers.

That makes it difficult to yet figure out what potential they have going for them but the same applies to Bohemians as it’s hard to make much from a daunting and difficult trip to Cork. In reality this game could still go either way and in the absence of any solid reasoning as to why Bohemians absolutely should win this game I am reluctant to entertain them at the prices.

Bohemians v Sligo Rovers Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

The bookies make Bohemians strong favourites for this game with many odds on but Ladbrokes offer 2.05 (21/20) on the home win. Sligo Rovers can be backed at 3/1 with 888Sport while the draw is best priced at 3.5 (5/2) with bet365.

A lack of information also makes the goals markets difficult to interpret but the 2.1 (11/10) from bet365 for both teams to score will tempt some. I am much more intrigued by the 2.47 (22/15) price on offer from Marathon Bet for +2.5 goals.

Even with as little information as is available it’s a price that seems out of kilter with reality. Both sides have goalscoring potential and neither have, as of yet, proven to be impenetrable defensively. At such a high offer it looks worth taking on.
