Irish Premier League prediction - Who will win between Dundalk v Cork on March 9th?

Dundalk opened up the scoring floodgates after two goalless draws in their first two games. They put 8 goals past a hapless Limerick at Oriel Park with Robbie Benson, Michael Duffy & Patrick Hoban all getting off the mark for the season. Hoban is looking to resurrect his footballing career after limited chances at Grimsby & Mansfield in the past couple of seasons. 

Cork have a serious start to the season and it already looks ominous for anyone with title aspirations, including Dundalk. Cork won the President's Cup game 4-2 back in February wit their new signings Barry McNamee & Graham Cummins settling into life on Leeside very quickly.

From what we've seen from Dundalk so far, it's hard to tell where they are at and whether the signings they've made can measure up to the opposition. Cork have started very strongly and are unbeaten in head-to-heads in all but one of the last ten games. We think Cork can win this one. 

Betting prediction: Cork to win @ 5/2 or Draw No Bet @ 6/4

Dundalk v Cork Betting Odds

Dundalk 23/20
Draw 23/10
Cork City 5/2

Goals Betting

Dundalk may want to play it somewhat cautious and keep Cork contained up until the hour mark but Cork are a team flying out the traps so far this season. They have goals threats from Sheppard, Buckley, McNamee, Sadlier & Morrissey and if they get off the mark early, it'll open the game up. The burden of not scoring may have been lifted off Dundalk players' shoulders with their recent win and have the players to get a goal.

Betting prediction: Over 2.5 goals @ 11/10

Illegal live streams are not the most reliable and we recommend this Live Stream information as a reliable alternative.
