Dundalk have the chance to go six points clear at the top with a win at The Brandywell.

Derry City will have plenty to say about it and they have second placed Cork City in their own sights. Their home form is as good as any with only Sligo Rovers escaping with all three points. The only other side to get anything were their local rivals, Finn Harps, after a 2-2 draw.

Consequently The Candystripes have kept the pressure on and are fully deserving of their third place position. Furthermore they went to Oriel Park and took a point back up the road. That was despite Dundalk taking an early lead and Derry City having to withstand a lot of early pressure.

With Pats, Cork City and Shamrock Rovers all beginning their European campaigns this week there is a prize in sight and the Derry players should have their eyes fixed on it.

That may also interfere with Dundalk’s preparation. The club have already looked beyond the Derry City game to the Champions League qualifier by pulling the Longford Town game forward to next Tuesday. As a result the players may also look beyond the games in front of them.

But the chance to open up another gap on Cork shouldn’t be treated flippantly and there is no doubting Dundalk’s resolve on the road. The Lillywhites have won seven of their eight away matches while conceding a mere three goals.

They have also covered a handicap in six of them. Dundalk are more than capable of coming up to Derry and putting them to the sword.

Derry City v Dundalk Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Dundalk can be backed at a best price of 1.85 (17/20) with Marathon Bet. You can back Derry City at a best price of 4/1 with bet365. Meanwhile, Marathon Bet have the best price for a draw of 3.65 (45/17).

A bet that could be worth considering is both teams to score at 2.2 (6/5) with Betvictor. The price of 2.38 (11/8) for +2.5 goals from the same firm probably holds a little more appeal.

Backing Dundalk with a one goal handicap at the Paddy Power price of 3.6 (13/5) is hard to ignore. However, taking the -1 Asian Handicap price of 2.7 (17/10) from 888Sport would be a less risky strategy.

Given how prolific Dundalk have been on the road, though, it’s hard to look past the price of 2.1 (11/10) from bet365 for +1.5 team goals.
