The Effect of the Early Home Goal in the Ireland Airtricity League

Posted on: March 15th, 2016 by Jonny Grossmark

In the table below I have added the last 52  games in the Ireland Airtricity league where the home teams opened the scoring with a goal in the 0-10 minutes time band , 73% ended over 2.5 goals and 42% ended over 3.5 goals. 

Both teams scored in 54% and over 1.5 goals was landed in the first half in 63%

The home teams won 77%, 13% ended a DRAW and the away teams won 10% < lowered expectation of the away team fighting back
