Soccer- Bohemians @ Derry City

In the first Soccer match of the day we get another pick from the Irish Premier League.  This is another match that is too hard to predict and if you have a respectable streak(W2 or higher) I would stay far away from this one. Let’s go behind the numbers in this match….

 

Bohemians

Overall Record:  6-5-6

On the Road:  4-1-2

Last 5:  2-1-2

 

Derry City

Overall Record:  8-5-4

At Home:  4-3-1

Last 5:  1-3-1

 

After looking at the numbers in this match it seems like Bohemians could be the safer pick of the two especially since they have the draw option on their side.  The teams are only separated by 6 points on the table and they both have drawn 5 times each this year.  With that being said, it looks like draw 6 for each teams looks likely.

 

Pick:  Bohemians Win or Draw

 

Soccer – Derry City @ Shamrock Rovers

In the second soccer match of the day we get to pick another gem from the Irish Premier League.  These two teams are only separated by 5 points on the table and will meet up for the second time this season.  Let’s look at the numbers in this middle of the season battle…

Derry City

Overall Record:  8-5-3

On the Road:  4-2-2

Last 5:  2-2-1

Shamrock Rovers

Overall Record:  10-4-2

At Home:  6-0-1

Last 5:  3-1-1

This is definitely a match that I wouldn’t pick if I had any kind of streak at risk.  These two teams are close to each other on the table and drew the first two time they played this season.  After looking at the numbers I like Shamrock but not enough to risk a streak on them.  If you plan on pick be careful and expect the unexpected.  I will have to go with the home team but not by much.  You have been warned!!!!

Pick:  Shamrock Rovers Win
