Having performed an exemplary comeback against Tyrone in the first All-Ireland semi-final, Mayo booked their place in the final.
However, with this weekend set to host the other last-four tie between Dublin and Kerry, James Horan’s men have yet to discover who they’ll face.
A spirited turnaround following the restart against Mickey Harte’s Tyrone which resulted in the The Heather County firing in 1-7 without reply means that last year’s All-Ireland finalists have managed to retain their tag as favourites ahead of the all-important showdown.
In fact, Boylesports have the Connacht Champions at 4/5 favourites with to banish a 62-year wait and lift the Sam Maguire.
Meanwhile, Dublin are available at 7/4. Of course, the Dubs will be keen to get a win against their old rivals Kerry, and what’s more is that they’ll be desperate to avenge the loss that their hurling counterparts suffered against Cork earlier in August.
Leon Blanche, Head of Communications at Boylesports told SportsNewsIreland: “We have seen a surge of money come in for the Dubs in the past few days to lift Sam and they are now 7/4 from 15/8″
He added: “Mayo have been knocking on the door and having alreaday knocked out reigning champions Donegal, they are worthy 4/5 favourites.”
Of course, regardless of the outcome this weekend, fans are guaranteed to have a special occasion to savour when the All-Ireland rolls around in September.
