Racing Post GAA tips: Score their 10/1 Football Championship treble

You’ll be bouncing out of the weekend if this lands!


Monaghan v Armagh: Armagh to win – 15/8

On a line of form through Cavan, there is no way Monaghan should be short-priced for this Ulster showdown in the qualifiers and Armagh look terrific value at 15/8 to cause an upset.

Kieran McGeeney’s men should have beaten Cavan in the drawn encounter and missed a few glorious goal opportunities in the early stages of the replay.

With Rian O’Neill, Jamie Clarke and Stefan Campbell up front, Armagh have now a better set of forwards to Monaghan and I fancy them to prolong their summer.

Dublin v Meath: Meath (+12) – Evens

This will be Meath manager Andy McEntee’s first time facing Dublin and the last thing he will want is a battering at the hands of the All-Ireland champions, especially if it’s ahead of a crunch clash to get into the Super 8s.

Expect the Royals to keep it tight in the first half and they have enough pace up front with Cillian O’Sullivan and Bryan McMahon to play on the counter-attack.

Meath have made giant strides in 2019, earning promotion back to the top flight in the National League and reaching the Leinster final. They have improved enough to stick within a generous 12-point handicap.

Cavan v Donegal: Donegal (-3) – Evens

Cavan have enjoyed a terrific campaign, but the faiytale looks set to end here against a more mature Donegal outfit.

The best display by any side in the 2019 Football Championship was Donegal’s impressive victory over Tyrone. Paddy McBrearty looked as good as ever, Michael Murphy dictated the pace of the game and Jamie Brennan produced the type of performance we knew he had within his capabilities, scoring 1-4 in the first half.

Donegal are the best team in Ulster and they can prove it with a wide-margin win.
