Finn Harps vs Shelbourne – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Finn Harps are without a victory in six games ahead of their clash with Shelbourne on Friday evening. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Shelbourne Double Chance

Finn Harps’ only win of the campaign so far came at Shelbourne’s expense back in March, though Shels could be about to exact some revenge in Friday evening’s rematch. Damien Duff’s potent travellers have avoided defeat in five of their last six away assignments, while Harps have yet to win a single contest in Ballybofey. With those records aligned, bettors are advised to side with the visitors in the double chance market this week.

Both Teams to Score

Shelbourne have been reliable performers in the BTTS markets in recent weeks with goals scored at both ends in each of their last four Premier Division fixtures. On the road, both teams to score has been a winning bet in 75% of their last four away tests and we’re tipping Shels to swap goals with their hosts in Ballybofey on Friday evening.

Over 2.5 Goals

Shelbourne’s results have been mixed this season, though the Dubliners have been consistent in terms of providing entertainment. Indeed, five of their last six games in the Irish top flight have produced over 2.5 goals – a run kicked off by their last encounter with Finn Harps in March. More excitement is on the cards in Friday’s return fixture, so stick to the over 2.5 totals line in Donegal.

Shels’ boss Damien Duff has the luxury of a clean bill of health ahead of the club’s trip to the north west to play Finn Harps on Friday. Shelbourne lost for the third time in four matches when they were narrowly beaten by Dundalk last time out. Shane Griffin was sent off after 45 minutes of that tussle and will miss Friday’s contest through suspension.
