Shelbourne vs Bohemians – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Shelbourne have taken just one point from five home games this season ahead of their tussle with Dublin rivals Bohemians. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

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

Bohemians Draw no Bet

Newly-promoted Shelbourne have found the going tough since their step up the divisions and Shels have taken just one point from the 15 on offer from their fixtures at Tolka Park. Bohemians haven’t exactly been pulling up any trees either, though they have lost just once on the road so far and they have just enough quality to take advantage of their host’s plight. For an added safety net, bettors are advised to side with Bohs in the draw no bet market this week.

Under 2.5 Goals

Shelbourne and Bohemians have both struggled to get going as an attacking force this season and that was evident in their first meeting this term. The teams drew 1-1 at Dalymount Park in March and the teams haven’t found a way to improve their output in the final third since. Shels and the Gypsies have notched just twice and four times in five home and away matches respectively and the sides’ paltry numbers can be capitalised on with a stake on under 2.5 goals.

Highest Scoring Half – Second

Supporters had to wait until the 74th minute before they witnessed any action in Shelbourne’s last clash with Bohemians in March. That was in keeping with the scoring pattern in Shels’ fixtures this season, in fact, 13 of the 17 goals scored in their fixtures have been registered after the interval. It could take a while for things to heat up again at Tolka Park on Monday, so back the second half to see more action than the first again.

Shelbourne vs Bohemians Match Preview and Team News


Jonathan Lunney, Jack Moylan, Adam Thomas and Sean McSweeney are all listed as possible injury absentees for Shelbourne this week. Damian Duff would have expected a tough campaign in 2022 as his players try to adjust to life in a new division, though Shels already look like possible relegation candidates alongside UCD and Finn Harps.


Ryan Cassidy and James Finnerty are both considered doubtful for Bohemians again ahead of the Gypsies’ trip across Dublin to play Shelbourne on Monday. Manager Keith Long would be the first to admit that his side have come out of the blocks slowly this season, though Bohs have at least been tough to beat on the road where they have lost just once so far. Bohemians will be aiming to improve upon last season’s 5th place finish in 2022.
