Over 3.5 Goals – 4/6
Tipperary fell eight points behind within 10 minutes of their quarter-final encounter with Dublin, but they eased their way into the game and eventually ran out easy 11-point winners to book their place in this League semi-final against Limerick.
The Treaty County themselves overcame huge deficits against both Galway and Clare enroute to the semi-final, but the young Limerick side have performed impressively throughout 2018.
Both sides have been lethal in front of goal this year, posting some impressive scores, and goals have been on the menu throughout. Tipperary have averaged two goals per game in their last four games, while Limerick have hit nine goals in their last three.
This will be undoubtedly be the biggest test so far in 2018 for both sides, but expect both forward lines to be ruthless in front of goal, and over 3.5 goals at 4/6, looks the way to go.
Racing Post pick: Over 3.5 Goals
Roscommon -1 – 10/11
Given that they only pocketed three points from a possible six in the first three rounds of Division 2, Roscommon have done remarkably well to reach the decider and they are strongly fancied to take the silverware home from Croke Park.
The experience they gained in last year’s All-Ireland quarter-final, especially their impressive display against Mayo in the drawn encounter, will stand to them as they return to headquarters.
They have won four games on the trot and the manner in which they dismantled a Cork side suggests they are hitting peak form.
Kevin McStay has the luxury of naming a full-strength side for the clash and forwards like Niall Kilroy, Conor Devaney, Donie Smith and Diarmuid Murtagh give Roscommon an edge up front on a Cavan side who like to play on the counter-attack.
Racing Post pick: Roscommon -1
No Galway goal – 11/10
Despite marching merrily to the Division 1 decider, Galway failed to find the net in their last three outings against Monaghan, Dublin and Kildare – so the 11/10 about them not scoring a goal against the All-Ireland champions looks great value.
Jim Gavin would have been utterly frustrated with the manner in which his side conceded two goals to Monaghan last Sunday, so do not expect them to be so open on this occasion.
Kerry, Galway, Mayo or Donegal were able to unlock the Dubs defence and get a goal in the group stages so it should really be odds-on for them to keep another clean sheet.
