Cork City laid down their title credentials before a well earned summer break.

There were still plenty of questions being asked despite the 1-0 win over Dundalk closing the gap to the champions to a single point. The ten men of Dundalk put it right up to them in the second half and were unlucky not to steal a point themselves.

They have won six games in a row now so the signs are good but there are still doubts over their away form. Despite beating Dundalk twice this season they still trail them in the league. This is due to points dropped at Derry, Galway and Sligo.

Away wins at Longford, Bray and an out of sorts Bohs aren’t enough to convince me they have arrested the problem. They will need to bring more to the table starting with a win in Tallaght to get me on board.

Shamrock Rovers have probably accepted that their league title aspirations are dead in the water. Their main focus might just be the visit of RoPS in the Europa League next Wednesday evening. Maybe that could give Cork City an extra edge but they have their own Euro experience to look forward to.

A trip to Linfield is waiting in their wings and maybe that is where their focus will be. As a consequence the outcome of this game is difficult to predict. The Rebels are yet to convince me on the road and considering I will most likely never be convinced by Pat Fenlon’s Rovers it looks a game best left alone.

Shamrock Rovers v Cork City Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Cork City are the favourites at a best price of 2.38 (13/8) with Paddy Power. Shamrock Rovers are available at 3.5 (5/2) with bet365. Marathon Bet offer the best price for a draw of 3.25 (9/4).

Both teams have scored in just one of Shamrock Rovers’ league matches this season. The price of 2.05 (21/20) from Betfair is, therefore, hard to have faith in.

Furthermore Cork City have kept five clean sheets in seven away matches this season. Maybe there is potential in backing both teams to score NO at a price of 1.8 (4/5) with Marathon Bet.

We are unlikely to see many goals hence the under 2.5 goals price of 1.6 (3/5) from Marathon Bet. Overs backers can get a high price of 2.5 (6/4) with Paddy Power.
