Betting Preview For This Weekend's Round Of GAA Matches

We're looking forward to another action packed weekend of top class GAA action. This weekend sees the Leinster Hurling Championship continue while the Ulster Football Championship and Munster Hurling Championship get kick started. 

We're looking at the following bets from the hurling & football this weekend;

1) Munster Football Championship - Tipperary v Waterford

Tipperary take on Waterford in what could be a one-sided contest on paper. Tipp are unbackable at 1/33 so we're looking at them scoring Over 1.5 Goals at a decent looking 4/7. 

2) Ulster Football Championship - Tyrone v Monaghan

Big neighbourly rivals Tyrone & Monaghan clash on Sunday afternoon in what should be a closely fought encounter. Tyrone are getting used to life without Sean Cavanagh and it'll be interesting to see if they can use the same tactics to the same effect without him in the side in what was at times effectively a one-man full-forward line. We're not expecting a cracker here and it could be a slow burner. We like the look of Under 31.5 Game points here at 5/6. 

3) Joe McDonagh Cup - Antrim v Laois 

An entertaining encounter should be in store when Antrim & Laois take each other on tomorrow. Laois really need a win to keep alive any hopes of playing in Croke Park. A demoralisng defeat to Kerry leaves them in a precarious position while Antrim have recorded two wins over Meath & Carlow. We're really looking forward to this one and expecting a humdinger of a game. Laois conceded 3 goals against Kerry and Antrim bagged 5 in their last 2 games. Expect goals - Over 2.5 Goals is 8/15! 

4) Leinster Hurling Championship - Kilkenny v Offaly & Wexford v Dublin 

Kilkenny started off with a hard-fought win over Dublin last week and will be looking to build on that with offaly up next. Offaly put up a good fight against Galway but conceded 5 goals. TJ Reid to score a goal & Kilkenny to win at 13/10 

Dublin were just lacking a little bit in the key stages against Kilkenny but showed a big improvement on last year's showings. Now can they put in another big performance 2 weeks running? Wexford had a good year last year but they won't be such a surprise package this time around and expectations are raised. Dublin at +4 on the handicap at Evens looks cracking value! 

5) Munster Hurling Championship - Cork v Clare 

Cork somewhat went under the radar last year and managed to reach the All-Ireland semi-final. They survived relegation from Division 1A as they clearly focused on peaking for the championship. Clare didn't live up to the favourites tag in the Munster Final last year as Cork won by 5 points. This time Cork are favourites with the bookies but it looks a tight one to call. We're looking towards goals market here. Under 2.5 Goals at 6/5 appeals with both sides not overly deadly in goalscoring terms during the league campaign.
