Tobias Gourlay thinks Waterford could find Cork City watertight in southern Ireland tonight

"Waterford are W3-D2-L5 on the road this season but, against teams now alongside them in the top half, they have lost 5/5"

Back Cork City Win to Nil @ 8/5 v Waterford (Sportsbook)

Cork City v Waterford
Friday 19:45

Two goals just before half time earned Flamengo a 2-0 win over Bahia in Brazil last night. 2-0 was enough for us too to beat the handicap.

We're spending Friday much closer to home. On the other side of the Irish Sea, there's a full round of Airtricity Premier League games tonight. Our pick is third-placed Waterford United's trip to second-placed Cork City.

Reigning champions Cork are eight points clear of their visitors and, with a game in hand, just two points behind leaders Dundalk. John Caulfield's men are a perfect W8-D0-L0 at Turners Cross this season and should get the win that could put them top this evening. The Rebel Army have conceded just once in total across those eight wins, so - at 8/5 ([2.60]) on the Sportsbook - we're backing them to keep a clean sheet too.

Waterford are W3-D2-L5 on the road this season but, against teams now alongside them in the top half, they have lost 5/5. We'd happily back the straight home win this evening but, with the Blues failing to score in any of those five defeats, the truly outstanding bet on this one is Cork to Win to Nil.
