Dublin v Mayo tips: Aidan O’Mahony’s top trio of All-Ireland Final punts

Can the men from the west finally end their drought?


Dublin to win

The beauty with Mayo is you never really can predict what they are going to bring to a game. They pull on the heartstrings of most people around the country and you’d just love for them to get over the line to win their first All-Ireland title since 1951.

But, unfortunately for them, Dublin have just gone to a different level this season. They treat every team with the respect they deserve. But, they just get on and do their business, and they’re utterly clinical at everything they do. I can’t see anything else other than a win for Dessie Farrell’s lads on Saturday.

Dublin to win by 7-9 points

This Dublin side just go right after any team they meet. I can see Mayo sticking in proceedings for 40 to 50 minutes, but then Dublin should push on and put the Westerners away. Dublin’s bench is far superior too, and at the final whistle I expect the Dubs to be ahead by at least 7-9 points – sealing their sixth All-Ireland in-a-row in the process.


Cillian O’Connor to score the first goal

If you are looking for a first goalscorer on Saturday evening I reckon it will either be Mayo’s Cillian O’Connor or Dublin’s Dean Rock. But, match-ups will be key to the entire outcome of the game. You’d imagine Chris Barrett will mark Dean Rock, while on the opposite side either Michael Fitzsimons or Jonny Cooper will be given the job of watching O’Connor.

I believe O’Connor will be the man to raise the first green flag though, he’s got a bit of a history with Dublin’s backs and he’ll be looking forward to going to battle with the men from the capital once again. O’Connor would certainly be my choice to hit the net first though.
