Betting on the football championship in Ireland
The top division of the Irish league has ten teams that play each other four times a season between February and November. Each season, one team is automatically relegated while the second-last team in the First Division plays a playoff against a team from the lower level. Second Division teams in Ireland, are safe as there is no relegation (all bets in the 1st Division in Ireland).
As far as the national team is concerned, the general lack of quality players affects the results. Of the 11 players who started against Luxembourg in the last World Cup qualifier in Qatar, only two of them play for top half Premier League teams in England and they have had mixed seasons. Worse, they are both natural right-backs.
Betting on the Dublin derbies
Shamrock Rovers Football Club (Irish: Cumann Peile Ruagairí na Seamróige) is an Irish football club based in Tallaght, south of Dublin. The club's senior team are two-time All-Ireland champion with titles in 2020 and 2021 and they are the most successful club in the Republic of Ireland.
One of the most keenly anticipated matches of the season is the Ringsend Derby between Shamrock Rovers and Shelbourne FC. This rivalry is contested by two of the three most successful teams in the League of Ireland with 19 and 13 titles respectively. Both clubs consider Bohemians to be greater rivals.
The champion enters the first round of Champions League qualification while the other two podium teams join the first round of the Conference League (all Conference League bets).
Recommended bets on the Premier League in 2022
The goal ratio in the Irish league is low as it is only 2.23 per game this season. In addition, the home winning percentage is almost identical to the away winning percentage. A recommended bet on the Irish Premier League is a match where both teams fail to score.
