Dundalk are ten games down and four points clear, an ominous sign for the rest of the League Of Ireland.

Eight wins, one draw and one unlucky (controversial?) defeat to Cork City and Stephen Kenny’s players have their sights firmly set. The Lillywhites’ fans are delighted with how the season has started even though most of them will tell you they haven’t even hit top gear.

Their best form has come on the road with all of their dropped points falling by the wayside at Oriel Park. They have only managed two goals in their last three outings at Oriel Park as well marshalled sides sit and make life tough for the Champions.

But the key to Galway’s success this season has been their own home form. They let a chance to draw level with Derry City in third slip when they threw away a 2-0 lead to Longford Town last weekend but for the most part they have been imperious at home.

Not so much on the road with two wins and two losses in their five matches to date. While they made life hard for Derry City, Sligo and Shamrock Rovers they picked up just one point from those three games. That doesn’t bode too well for a trip to Dundalk.

Particularly with Dundalk having conceded just one goal in their last six Premier Division matches. Derry City are the only team to breach their defence in that run and that only came after Dundalk had been reduced to ten men.

Even with Vinny Faherty leading the goalscorer charts and The Tribesmen having the third highest team goals in the league it’s impossible to back against the home side. Even with Dundalk missing two key players in Stephen O Donnell and Ciraran Kilduff.

Until Dundalk hit top form it probably pays to be cautious when considering backing them on the handicaps but it can be hard to ignore some of the prices on offer this weekend.


Dundalk v Galway Utd Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Dundalk are available at 1.4 (2/5) with Marathon Bet. Galway Utd are best priced with Betvictor at 8/1 while the draw is best again with Marathon Bet at 5.1 (41/10).

Both teams to score is hard to have faith in even at the odds against price of 2.1 (11/10) with Boylesports. Goals backers will get no better than 1.8 (4/5) with Marathon Bet and that holds little appeal.

Handicap backers will get 2.1 (11/10) on Dundalk -1 handicap and that certainly has reason to be considered. Braver punters will get 2.85 (37/20) from bet365 for a -2 Asian Handicap bet.
