GAA Championship: Bounce into finals weekend with this 5/1 treble

With three provincial finals down for decision this weekend, who better to guide your punts than the Racing Post’s GAA expert…


Cork v Kerry, Pairc Ui Chaoimh, 7pm Saturday

Kerry (-4) – 10/11

Kerry go to the new Pairc Ui Chaoimh for the first time with an exciting young team that currently look to be the biggest challenge to Dublin in the race for the All-Ireland title.

They’ve quickly brought through young stars David Clifford and Sean O’Shea. Clifford joins Paul Geaney and James O’Donoghue in possibly the most exciting full-forward line in the country. The Kingdom hit 32 points against Clare in the Munster semi-final, so Cork will know full well the damage they can do.

The Rebels were written off by many, but produced a top-class performance to beat Tipperary by 11 points last time out. In Kerry they face a much more difficult task and they may struggle to hold this Kingdom forward line.

Although Kerry are away from home, they should be well capable of covering a four-point handicap.

Racing Post pick: Kerry (-4)

Donegal v Fermanagh, Clones, 2pm Sunday

Under 33.5 Total Points – 4/5

Donegal have progressed through the Ulster Championship with relative ease, averaging 26 points per game and they look the strongest contenders in Ulster for the All-Ireland Championship.

They’ve dismissed each of their opponents and their ability to get goals, two per game, will be key going forward. In Fermanagh, they face a team who have struggled to get scores, but have gotten results.

They only hit 1-8 against Monaghan in the semi-final, but that was enough to claim a one-point victory, showing their defensive qualities.

They face a much stiffer task in containing this Donegal attack and their lack of firepower up front should ensure this is a tight, low-scoring encounter.

Racing Post pick: Under 33.5 Total Points

Dublin v Laois, Croke Park, 4pm Sunday

Laois (+15) – 10/11

Dublin go in search of their eighth Leinster Championship in-a-row on Sunday up against a Laois side in their first provincial final in over a decade.

As usual, the Dubs have breezed through Leinster so far with easy victories over Wicklow and Longford, while Laois have come the hard way, as their first round extra-time win over Wexford was followed by wins over Westmeath and Carlow.

The O’Moore County have made huge strides this year gaining promotion from Division Four, and while a first Leinster Championship title since 2003 is beyond their reach, they have the quality to put up a challenge to Dublin and stay within the 15 point handicap.

Racing Post pick: Laois (+15)
