GAA Betting Tips
The 2010 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship kicks into gear this weekend as the round 1 qualifiers get underway on Saturday afternoon. Donegal (13/8) travel to Crossmaglen to face Armagh (8/13), while Cavan (8/11) host Wicklow (11/8). Both Armagh and Cavan will progress to the next round.
The most intersting match-up in Round 1 sees Kildare (4/7) play host to Antrim (7/4) in Newbridge on Satuday night at 7pm. Kildare’s All-Star winner Dermot Early is expected to start the match just hours after the burial of his father. Kildare won’t be focused and an Antrim win is the best GAA betting tip of the weekend.
Fortunes arise for those who go searching and that can certainly be said about Dublin’s last performance in the Leinster Senior Football Championship. Trailing by seven points early in the second-half, the Dubs rallied to force extra-time and eventually ran out seven-point winners. They won’t have it so easy though this weekend as they face thier bitter rivals Meath at Croke Park on Sunday in the semi-final of the Leinster Senior Football Championship.
Meath were flawless against Laois in their replay fixture last weekend and if the Dubs make a sluggish start once again, then Meath will have the opportunity to open up convincing lead on their arch enemy. The betting market speaks in favour of Dublin (8/11) but with them having difficulty adapting to their new style of play I think Meath (6/4) will run out comfortable winners and they are the second GAA betting tip of the weekend.
Following the Meath and Dublin match, Louth (11/8) do battle against Westmeath in the other Leinster Senior Football Championship semi-final. The Wee County (Louth) put in an outstanding performance in the quarter-final against Kildare and if they can deliver another inspired display they will easily account for a very poor Westmeath (8/11) side who are surprisingly the bookies favourite for this match.
Louth to beat Westmeath 11/8
Meath to beat Dublin 6/4
Antrim to beat Kildare 7/4
*Sneaky treble pays over 15/1!!
