Saturday 7pm: Tyrone v Mayo

Tyrone won’t be worried about their performances at the moment. They’ve got a lot of their marquee players back and it isn’t clicking just yet but it could this weekend.

As for Mayo, the biggest thing for them is getting their backs right. They have a lot of attacking options rather than defensively. You need to find that balance.

It’s a must win game for Tyrone and it should be a cracker. It’s hard to call but I like the Draw.

I also like Ryan O’Donoghue to be the First Goalscorer. He has been very effective recently. He has been slightly isolated at times but he usually turns up and impresses.

Sunday 2pm: Armagh v Kerry

Both teams had big wins last weekend and Armagh will have had this circled on their calendars for a while. If Armagh can get a result against Kerry, it’ll be huge for their players. They’ll take a lot of confidence from it.

Kerry have a little momentum and they’ll want to extend their winning streak. They’ll also want to bring in new players and what better way to test them than an away game at Armagh.

I like Kerry to Win by Two Points and I also feel Tony Brosnan to be the First Goalscorer is a solid pick.

Sunday 2:30pm: Kildare v Monaghan

This is also a huge game. When Monaghan have all their players available, they’re as good as any team in the country.

Kildare will have been disappointed against Armagh and they’ll be keen to bounce back at home.

This will be tight and I’d probably side with Monaghan to get the job done but don’t rule out a draw.

Sunday 3:45pm: Dublin v Donegal

Donegal are a big price after Dublin won last weekend. Dublin looked like the Dublin of old and they’re looking good again. Going off what I saw last weekend, Dublin should win again.

This weekend’s GAA tips:

Saturday 7pm: Tyrone v Mayo

Ryan O’Donoghue to be the First Goalscorer

Tony Brosnan to be the First Goalscorer
