The All-Ireland Football Championship continues at the weekend with Carlow playing host to Meath in Dr Cullen Park with the winners setting up a Leinster semi-final against Kildare.
Meath are currently 1/25 to see past Carlow (10/1) with a draw priced at 25/1. Sunday’s other football match sees Monaghan take on Tyrone with the winners going on to play Armagh in the UIster semi-final on June 28th.
Currently Tyrone are priced at 5/2 to win a 14th Ulster Football title and the Red Hands are favoured at 4/6 to see past last year’s Ulster Champions, Monaghan who are priced at 6/4 to cause an upset.
Saturday evening sees the replay between Waterford and Clare take place. Both teams are currently the 200/1 outsiders to win the Munster Senior Football Championship with the odds of 8/11 suggesting that Clare should prevail past Waterford (11/8) in the replay to set up a Munster semi-final meeting with current Munster champions Kerry.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “Despite Monaghan been priced at 6/4 to prevail past Tyrone, we have seen plenty of support for the current Ulster champions and judging by the popularity our traders may well have to shorten the current 6/4 up if the demand continues to come.”
He added “In Leinster, Dublin remain the red hot favourites at 1/8 to retain the Delaney Cup whilst in Munster, reigning champions Kerry are starting to attract support at their current price of 11/8 to retain the title.”
Sunday sees Clare take on Cork in the Munster semi-final with current All-Ireland champions, Clare, priced at 8/11 to progress. Cork can be backed at 13/10 to cause an upset and progress to the Munster final against Limerick.
Kilkenny who have lifted the Liam McCarthy trophy on thirty four occasions are currently priced at 7/4 to lift it for a record 35th time whilst the Cats head the betting at 8/15 to regain the Leinster crown from current holders Dublin.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “Dublin are all the rage at 1/2 to progress past Wexford on Saturday night despite having to travel to Wexford Park. Anthony Daly’s side can be backed at 11/4 to retain the Bob O’Keeffe Cup and no doubt if Dublin can progress past Wexford the current 11/4 will harden up.”
He added “The Munster Championship remains very tight with current champions Limerick priced at 7/4 to retain the title. In the All-Ireland outright, Kilkenny are now all the rage at 7/4 following their demolition of Offaly last weekend.”
