What a difference a few weeks can make in football and what a difference in the betting.

Just two weeks ago you could have got a price of 1.8 (4/5) on Galway Utd scoring a goal at home to Cork City. Now you won’t even get them at 1.5 (1/2) to win at home to Longford Town.

It’s a remarkable price for a game that had it been played out at the start of the season might not have been far off odds against. It is a price borne out by their form, particularly at home, that sees them sitting in fourth place just a point behind Cork City in third.

They have the leagues top goal scorer in Vinny Faherty and other than Cork, who drew 2-2 here two weeks ago, nobody has scored against them at home in the league this season. Bray, Bohs and Finn Harps have all come and gone without scoring so it’s a price that is hard to argue against.

None the less, arguing against the short price on a home win is exactly what I intend to do. Of course they should be favourites against a Longford Town side who have been woeful on their travels. They should certainly even be odds on to win but as short as they are it is impossible to take on.

This could be one for the layers/traders who may have some success if they plan to cash out early in the second half. Of the eight goals Galway have scored at home in the league only two of them have been scored in the first half.

If they are slow of the mark again, as has been their way, there could be an opportunity to trade the bet off at a tidy profit.
