Saturday 7:30pm: Dublin v Armagh

This will be one of the games of the weekend. Armagh looked good last year and they have firepower up front, however, their defence needs work. They’ll be one of the big teams this year.

It’s unknown where Dublin are at the moment. If there’s ever a time to play Dublin or any top team, it’s the first game of the season. This could end up as a Draw. Armagh will set up defensively and they’ll be hard to beat.

I also like Armagh +5 on the Handicap betting. They have a lot of young players coming through and all the pressure is on Dublin to win.

If you’re looking at a First Goalscorer, Rory Grugan for Armagh is a solid pick. Colm Basquel is also a great pick for Dublin.

Sunday 1:45pm: Kildare v Kerry

This game is going to be full-on, especially with Jack O’Connor making his return. Kerry are in a great place at the moment and Jack is working out which players he likes. There’s always pressure on Kerry to perform and we all know it’s about All-Ireland wins. Kildare will be loud on Sunday but I fancy Kerry to get the job done.

For a First Goalscorer bet, I’d back Paul Geaney as he’s in great form at the moment.

Sunday 1:45pm: Mayo v Donegal

This is a really interesting clash. If you are to pinpoint a team to win the league, you’re probably looking at Mayo. They’ll be disappointed after last year and they’ll want to bounce back.

We’re all waiting for Donegal to step up. They’re getting to semi-finals but when will they go that one step further? It hasn’t happened yet. This one could easily end up as a draw but I’ll side with Mayo. The home crowd will be the key.

I also fancy Tommy Conroy to be the First Goalscorer for Mayo, while I like Paddy McBrearty for Donegal.

Aidan O’Mahony’s weekend treble:

If you are looking at a treble for this weekend’s action, Dublin, Kerry and Mayo would be a smart bet.
