One of the problems with all these GAA championships, is that there can be a lot of short priced favourites given how strong some teams are within counties and it can put you off betting on the matches.

But, I reckon there still a lot of interesting action to be found in the markets and after all, there are championship matches in nearly every county in Ireland to choose from.

So, I’ve looked through the betting and found some fairly decent odds for you. Let me tell you about my bets to follow this weekend:

15:30 Saturday – (Wicklow) Rathnew v Blessington: Blessington to win

We start our journey in the Garden County as Rathnew and Blessington get it on in Round 3 of the Wicklow Senior Football Championship.

Paddy’s odds makers are struggling to separate the two sides, but I reckon Blessington have enough in them to get over the line in this one.

16:00 Saturday – (Monaghan) Truagh v Latton: Latton to win

Truagh and Latton square off in the Monaghan Senior Football Championship group stages, in a game that is pretty much a toss of a coin.

I’d expect despite being underdogs in the betting, that the men from Latton would come through that one.

18:30 Saturday – (Derry) Glen v Magherafelt: Magherafelt to win

Moving briefly across the border to Derry, Glen and Magherafelt face off in a tasty Senior Championship match-up in Bellaghy.

I’m actually going to tip up Magherafelt to spring a surprise here and score a victory.

19:00 Saturday – (Leitrim) Fenagh v Aughawillan: Aughawillan to win

In the beauty county of Leitrim, Fenagh and Aughawillan clash in Group 1 of the Senior Football Championship on Saturday evening at Pairc Sean O’Laodain in Fenagh.

This is yet another close game in the betting and the away side Aughawillan might just be a value selection in this contest.

19:00 Saturday – (Sligo) Coolera-Strandhill v Coolaney/Mullinabreena: Coolera-Strandhill to win

Finally, moving to the neighbouring county of Sligo, Coolera-Strandhill and Coolaney/Mullinabreena meet at Bunninadden in yet another tight Senior Championship affair.

I’m taking the slight favourites Coolera-Strandhill to just edge out a victory here.
