    I was was expecting Dundalk to be favs, and not too much in the difference to Rovers, so no surprise there.

    Derry have increased budget by 30% and will get more players in, McCormack will add to their MF.

    I don't see how Pats are rated above Bohs, who will clearly be Derry biggest challenge for 3rd. Cork being a lower price v Waterford is another odd one, also not sure if Shels are 'best of the rest', Sligo will have more experience in the PD for a start.

    Will be interesting to see how PP rate the teams in comparison.

    Dundalk are half the odds of rovers and I think that is generous.
    Put 20 on dundalk you win 16. Put 20 on rovers you win 30.
    Interesting start.

    Dundalk and Rovers should end up a long way clear of everybody else.

    Weird that there is such a big gap from Waterford to Harps when their chances of winning the league are effectively zero, along with most other teams.

    Is there each way odds?

    Edit - there is, but only for the top two spots, so yeah, the Harps difference is a bit excessive alright.

    Bohs each way is probably the most attractive looking there.

    Each way double on Bohs/Galway is a value for money bet I'd think. Paddypower have their odds up for both divisions now too.

    Betfair also have their odds up, Prem Div same as PP, either must have copied the other, although Betfair are going for a longer season, they have 2020/21.

    Betfair and PP are the same company I think so odds would be the same.

    Appreciate that, but odds 100% not the same in other football. Maybe they just went same for simplicity for LOI, wouldn't be huge market for outright betting, more weekly games.

    I'd imagine maybe the Betfair ones start the same and maybe drift according to the market or something.

    Anyhow, Harps have gone from 500-1 to 225-1 which I think accurately reflects our unstoppable momentum at the moment.

    That Shane McEleney guy you signed must be some player to move the odds from 500-1 to 225-1 if you could sign another guy just as good you would be odds on favourites.

    Betfair and PP target different markets I think. So if those different tbh markets bet different ways, and if odds are purely a measure of where the money is going, then it's logical their odds could differ slightly

    Only 2 EW places bud so no value there. Nobody will touch the top 2 in the premier and whole Galway are definitely a good shout in the FD this year they still should be behind Longford and Drogs
