Saturday, Limerick v Kilkenny: Selection: Limerick (-2) – 4/5
Limerick’s performance in the Munster final suggested they were even better this year than the side who lifted the Liam McCarthy in 2018 and odds of 4/5 about them defying a two-point handicap looks decent value.
Cork imploded in the closing stages of the All-Ireland quarter-final and perhaps that made Kilkenny look more impressive than they actually were.
The Treaty County’s forwards clicked in the trouncing of Tipperary, with Peter Casey leading the charge with 1-05 and it appears they are peaking at the perfect time.
Limerick are the All-Ireland champions, the National League holders and Munster kingpins and they can prove themselves to be the best side in the business with a straightforward success.
Sunday, Wexford v Tipperary: Under 2.5 goals – 6/4
Wexford pride themselves on a sound defensive structure and have only conceded two goals in five games on their way to winning a Leinster title for the first time in 15 years.
They will aim to frustrate Tipperary, just like they frustrated Kilkenny in the provincial decider and under 2.5 match goals at 6/4 with Paddy Power looks a cracking bet.
Only one of Wexford’s five Championship outings has contained three goals or more and the exception was a last-gasp equalising goal from Dublin.
This could be a tight affair with scores harder to come by than the layers suggest.
