Competition: Irish First Division

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out in the promotion chase this season, the Bray Wanderers will welcome Galway to Carlisle Grounds on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Bray might have managed to mount what was an eye-catching comeback away at a struggling Cork City last week, The Wanderers would have been disappointed to have had to settle for a point on the road. Eventually playing out a 2-2 draw and now holding just a one-point buffer from dropping out of the top-five, Gary Cronin’s men have shown some recent inconsistencies. Including what was a 4-1 drumming at the hands of runaway leaders Shelbourne last month, Bray have recorded just a single win in their last six First Division contests, a run that stems back to May 21st. Gaining a reputation for their lively outcomes at both ends of the pitch, it should also be noted that Cronin’s side have seen four of their last five matchups finish with over 2.5 goals by the final whistle.

As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a hugely impressive purple patch over the past month, there is no doubt that the mood in Galway’s camp should be at a red-hot high. While they might still find themselves in the midst of a real battle to secure an automatic Premier Division return this season, The Tribesmen are in the midst of an eye-catching five-match winning run. Last seen picking up back-to-back 2-0 victories against Cobh Ramblers and fellow promotion hopefuls UCD, it should also be noted that a 4-0 drumming away at Shelbourne back in May is Galway’s only defeat away from Eamonn Deacy Park in their last six appearances. With Friday’s guests seeing six of their last seven First Division away contests finish with over 1.5 goals by the final whistle, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
