Support For Lilywhites To Land The Title!Stats
Top of the table Cork travel to Oriel Park tomorrow in the hopes of becoming the 2014 Airtricity League champions.
Cork may be one point ahead of Dundalk but the Lilywhites are odds on at 5/6 to win their first Premier League title since 1995.
Cork’s wait for the title is not quite as long as Dundalk’s, having last won it in 2005, and the Rebel Army can be backed at 10/11 to seal the deal away from home.
Dundalk are also 5/6 in the match betting with Cork priced at 16/5. A draw is all Cork need to secure the title and is installed at 23/10. Dundalk (-1) is the handicap of choice for punters at 23/10 with Cork (+1) also a popular pick at 20/21. With everything riding on their final game of the season, goals are not expected to be few and far between. Over 2.5 is on offer at 21/20 in the Total Goals market, with Over 3.5 an 11/4 shot for those looking for a bit of value.
An early lead could mean everything on Friday at Oriel Park. The First Goalscorer market indicates that Dundalk will go in front with Pat Hoban 4/1 to score first. Richie Towell is on offer at 11/2 to put Stephen Kenny’s and Dundalk fans mind at ease, somewhat, and net first.
Mark O’Sullivan is Cork’s main candidate to get them off to a winning start at 15/2. John O’Flynn is next to score first for Cork at 8/1, with Billy Dennehy a 9/1 shot.
