Sunday 2pm: Cork v Clare

If there’s anything in these Cork lads it has to come out on Sunday and they have to perform against Clare. I think they will, I still think there’s an awful lot of good hurdlers in that Cork team.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

I think the Cork supporters deserve a performance out of this team and I think they might just turn up at the weekend. I’m going to go for a Cork Win. Paddy Horgan, we’re waiting for him to come to the party, he hasn’t turned up yet but I think he’s due a goal.

You look at last weekend, something’s telling me he’ll come to the party this weekend so I’ll do with Patrick Horgan to Score First in a Cork Win. I think we can add a bit of value by taking Cork on the (-1) handicap.

Sunday 2pm: Galway v Kilkenny

I can’t wait for this one, it’s the talk of the country! This is the one match Brian Cody does not want to lose. I like the look of the Kilkenny forward line, there’s a nice mix there.

I’m going to go for Kilkenny to Win this match. I think he’ll have these lads ready to go for this and I think they’ll do it. Kilkenny (-1) on the handicap looks good, if they are going to win it’ll be by two or three points.

I’m going to go with Eoin Cody in the goal scorer markets. He’s a top, top player and I’m going for Eoin Cody to Score First and raise the first green flag of the game.

Sunday 2.30pm: Laois v Wexford

Wexford will be absolutely kicking themselves after all the missed opportunities they had last weekend to try and get a result against the Dubs, they’re under a bit of pressure now. Considering the score line that Galway put up against Westmeath last weekend, Wexford will be looking to do the same here in this fixture.

You don’t know what you’re going to get with Laois, they’re like the Irish weather! they could turn up brilliant one day and desperate the next. I would expect Wexford to Win this game and I expect them to go right after Laois this weekend so I’d take the Wexford (-10) handicap.

It’s a flip of a coin but I like Rory O’Connor in the goal scorer markets. He was brilliant last weekend, they couldn’t get enough ball into him. I’m going to go for Rory O’Connor to Score First in this match.

Sunday 3pm: Westmeath v Dublin

This is a case of whether Dublin will cover the handicap spread of 14 or won’t they? Westmeath come in here off a heavy defeat and for them it will all be about tightening up at the back.

14 points is an awful lot and I think with the home following, and trying to rectify the wrongs of last weekend… I think Dublin might win this game by maybe 12-13 points so I’m going to go for Westmeath (+14).

I picked him two weekends ago, Ronan Hayes, I think he’s due one. I’m going for Ronan Hayes to Score First in this match.
