IT'S off to Ireland for the first pick of the week. In-form St Patricks host Bohemians at Richmond Park, looking to secure their 12th game unbeaten from 13 on their own patch.

Liam Buckley's side have kicked off the new campaign in style and sit third in the Premier League – four points behind second-placed Derry with a game in hand.

Half a dozen clean sheets from their last eight in front of their own fans shows just how dominant the home side have been of late and they will be keen to maintain that momentum in this one.

A 2-0 defeat of leaders Sligo last week will have boosted confidence in the home camp and the Saints will be eyeing pole position with just six points to make up – and bettering their finish of third last campaign.

Visitors Bohemians travel to Inchicore in inconsistent form – and have won just two of their last eight ahead of this clash.

Aaron Callaghan's side have lost two of their opening three on the road this season and that suggests they have continued the miserable run which saw them fail to win eight of their final 10 away from Dalymount Park last year.

Worrying for the Gypsies will be the fact they have kept just two clean sheets on their travels since May 2012 – and that indicates St Patricks are more than likely to notch against their guests this evening.

The hosts are unbeaten in six against their opponents and I reckon they can make it three wins on the bounce here.

Bet 1: St Patricks @ 1.56

Switching our attentions to France now – and Ligue 2 as Monaco travel to Sedan looking for maximum points in order to secure promotion back to the top tier.

Claudio Ranieri's side have been in sparkling form of late and will be high in confidence following a 4-0 thrashing of Clermont last week – a result which further extended their lead at the top of the table.

And eight-game unbeaten run on the road, with six wins and five clean sheets, shows just how impressive Les Rouges et Blancs have been with their free-flowing attacking on the break causing untold problems for the rest of the division.

Sedan go into this one sitting second bottom of the table – and though results have picked up recently they are still six points adrift of safety – and running out of time.

Laurent Guyot's charges have won three of their last four on their own patch and will be desperate to continue that positive form – but what a shame for them they welcome the might of Monaco this evening – a side which has swept all before them this campaign.

The hosts have no choice but to go for the three points and that will play straight into the away side's hands.

On recent form I'd back Sedan against most sides in Ligue 2 but not Monaco. Their quality is clear and I can't see them throwing away the opportunity to secure their top0flight status once again.

Bet 2: Monaco @ 2.06

    Seen the day i’d watch World Championship snooker from pillar to post…not now. Pretty much bores me. Doon in Glesga for the w/e and will prob watch the last session of the final on Monday night but that be aboot it. I used to strongly associate the mayday holiday snooker final with Stephen Hendry n Jimmy White..those were the days..pile of robots n whiners like Osullivan doubting his talent as a snooker player but canna be arsed with his “feel sorry for me I have issues/dont wanna play any more” crap.

      Guido, we were talking about that in the office earlier, better players now but a lack of characters. Ronnie and maybe Trump are the only two left who I’d want to watch. I’ll go back further and recall the might of Alex Higgins and it was great to count the pints Bill Werbeniuk knocked back.

    We were talking about the snooker at a golf scamble on Sat said much the same. Were all in 40s so remember the higgins/Davis spats. wWgite, Reardon even (dracula) hahaha. I think as well the balls are a lot lighter nowadays, virtually no nap on the cloths etc, like a lot of sports technology/equipmet has changed.Not saying the modern player are graet players but not sure if theyd be as flash/screwing it back 12ft off the bottom rail with the old heavvy snooker balls that Higgins etc used?? Same as golf, I think tecjnology and equipmet great for handicap players like us, but so many of the great course are deemed obsolete cos every 2nd gorilla can smash it 350 yards through the air. Id like them to make it different for pros and simple way would be to change the compression of the ball in professional events thus making less emphasis on distance/wid help re-introduce some of these great course you never see hoisting events now..they can still use the gear/equipment/titleist/nike balls but diferent compression to us mere mortals who will still by the gear from the manufacturers. Id also make fairway bunkers deeper and more punishing..I recall Woods last year belting it 230 yards onto the green with an iron from a fairway “trap”??…that canna be right TBH? I mean as well therfe only a tiny ).000001 percent or whatever of golfers that ever become pro…
