Saturday 5pm: Wexford v Dublin

Wexford were maybe a little luck last weekend but they dug it out and got their rewards. They could have thrown in the towel. They’re hard to beat at home.

This game is probably the most important of the weekend. The winner will have a great chance of finishing in the top three and getting to the final.

Wexford are solid at home and it’s a big advantage for them. The crowd makes a huge difference. If Wexford get their strongest team out, they’ll take some beating.

I’m going with Wexford to Win and I also like Rory O’Connor to be the First Goalscorer. He’s looked good and I fancy him to shine.

Saturday 5:30pm: Kilkenny v Laois

Kilkenny picked up a good win last weekend and Laois lost to Dublin but they were unlucky. They put in a big effort.

Kilkenny will be desperate to put Laois to the sword and they’ll be hoping to secure a dominating win. They’ll really go after Laois and they could score three or four times.

I like Kilkenny to Win but the odds aren’t great so I’m going with Kilkenny -12 on the Handicap. I’m also keen on Billy Ryan to be the First Goalscorer.

Saturday 6pm: Galway v Westmeath

Galway will be kicking themselves after not beating Wexford last time out. The goal this weekend will be to secure a big win. They’ll be hopeful of scoring a few against Westmeath.

The Handicap Betting is set at -15 and I fancy them to cover that. Come the end of this championship, the scoring averages could be a deciding factor.

Saturday 7pm: Limerick v Waterford

All eyes will be on this one, it’s a blockbuster game. Limerick were awesome last weekend but Waterford is a bigger test. Waterford got the job done last weekend, it took a while, but they dug it out in the end.

Limerick will be eager to beat Waterford to keep on top in terms of the mind games. It’s going to be a tight one

I’d fancy Limerick to come out on top in the end but it’ll be close, so I’d take Waterford +3 on the Handicap Betting. I think Limerick will win by one or two points.

In terms of goals, I fancy Stephen Bennett to be the First Goalscorer. He didn’t get many chances last weekend so he’ll be raring to go on Saturday night. There could be plenty of goals in this one and Over 3.5 Goals is also an attractive bet.

Sunday 2pm: Tipperary v Clare

Clare are outsiders but I feel they could cause Tipperary a few problems this weekend. Clare could be a good each-way outright bet if you’re looking at long-term picks.

7/1
Clare Outright Betting

This is a huge game for Tipperary and there will be pressure on them, so I like Clare +2 in the Handicap Betting. A lot of people are underestimating them. I wouldn’t put people off backing Clare to Win as they’re a solid price.

I also fancy Shane O’Donnell to Score Anytime. He’s looked lively and he’ll be up for it.
