Betting Predictions for this game


Irish Premier League prediction - Who will win between Waterford v Shamrock Rovers on March 23rd?

Waterford counted themselves very unlucky to have come away from Oriel Park with nothing having done well to contain a strong Dundalk effort early in the 2nd half and had a chance through John Martin to take the lead. They conceded in stoppage time through an own goal but after the dust settled, they'll be quitely happy with the start they've made to the season. 

Rovers have won 1-0 in back-to-back games against Pats & Limerick. Graham Burke scored his 6th goal of the season from the spot in Limerick as he and Gary Shaw linked up well at times. A tough one to call with a draw looking a likely outcome. 

Betting prediction: Draw @ 21/10 

Waterford v Shamrock Rovers Betting Odds

Waterford 15/8

Shamrock Rovers 13/10

Goals Betting

Waterford have looked defensively sound so far this season as have their opponents. The Blues have kept 2 clean sheets and were a couple of minutes away from keeping a 3rd away to Dundalk. Rovers have kept 4 clean sheets already and both sides have conceded just 1 goal each in the first-half of their games. 

Betting prediction: Under 2.5 goals @ 4/6

Irish Premier League Live Stream

Illegal live streams are not the most reliable and we recommend this Live Stream information as a reliable alternative. Being able to watch the game live and watch your bets as they happen is exciting, but bear in mind all streams are slightly behind the real-time action, so if using for in-play betting, then please approach with caution.

There is very limited opportunity to watch Airtricity Premier League football on TV - RTE have a few games scheduled this season, and we hope they will announce more soon.
