Limerick are set to walk away with the First Division and nobody disagrees.

I said last week that getting Limerick right on the handicaps could be the make or break bet of this year and I stand by that. The price was right last weekend at home to Cobh Ramblers and they duly delivered.

Of course everyone will look to the handicap markets as a first thought and thats fair enough. But getting them right on the handicaps won’t be as easy as you would first assume for one very important reason. Limerick will concede an awful lot of goals.

Already this season they have conceded six goals in just four games and that rate looks set to continue. They have more than made up for it by banging in nineteen (yes 19!) of their own but clean sheets look likely to be few and far between.

While the handicap will look tempting most weeks getting it at the right price is going to become increasingly difficult. Looking at other markets could bear more fruit and away to Athlone both teams to score has got real potential.

Athlone Town should have the potential to get on the scoresheet having scored in all three games so far. They scored two away to Drogheda last time out bringing their total to four for the season. With the price being offered very amenable backing both teams to score must be considered.


Athlone Town v Limerick Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Limerick are strong favourites at a best 1.3 (3/10) with Paddy Power. Athlone can be backed at a high of 14/1 with bet365 while the draw is available at a best price of 6.3 (53/10) with Marathon Bet.

The price of 1.95 (19/20) from Boylesports for both teams to score is incredibly high given Limerick’s penchant for goal creation. It is much more preferable to the 1.5 (1/2) across the board for +2.5 goals although it also looks highly likely.

The handicap prices are a little restrictive at a best 1.73 (8/11) for Limerick -1 goal with Paddy Power. You will get slightly better by backing them -1.5 Asian Handicap at 1.75 (3/4) with bet365.

No doubting that both teams to score is the bet to be on this week, though.
