I thought it would be a good idea to keep all betting tips to 1 thread for the season as it works in other sporting forums.
For today's games
LOUTH "ALL GAA FOOTBALL MATCHES"
€20 pays €105 on Paddy Power
Meath, Kerry, Monaghan, Tip.
Meath should be good enough to beat Wicklow. Kerry should win by 8-10 pts. Monaghan should win and Tip will win by 8-10 pts aswell I reckon.
Both the Meath and Monaghan games have a bit of unpredicatability about them and should be tight enough for most of the game, while the other 2 should be reasonably comfortable vistories.
First games of the season for any county have an extra bit of trepidation built in so hopefully my predictions aren't as clear cut as the actual results
Meath v Wicklow - Normally you'd have this down as a Meath banker but the current Meath team is hardly the greatest they've ever had and Wicklow will know they're there for the taking. I'd still go for Meath to prevail but not without a fight. Meath by 4-5 pts
Tipp v Kerry - This should be straightforward for Kerry. Tipp got relegated to div 4 scoring only 1 goal in their 7 games. Kerry at a canter you'd have to think. Kerry by 14 pts or so
Monaghan v Antrim - Monaghan had quite a poor league and are a team that seems to have gone backwards in the last year or so. But they should still have enough to beat Antrim. Monagahan by 5 pts
Tipp v Limerick - I'd expect Limerick will put it up to Tipp and it'll be no thrashing. But Tipp's greater scoring power should see them home. Tipp by 7 pts
The accum on those 4 results pays 7/5, which is just slightly bigger than 11/8. Not much of a price but all 4 should win. If there's to be a shock it could be in Carlow where I fancy Wicklow might put it up to Meath. But in all likelihood those 4 teams should win.
My tip would be to back Kerry (-11) at Evs. That looks banker material to me as Kerry will surely win easily.
Kerry -11, Tipp (Hurling) -6 double...pays 3/1 on Boyles is worth a shot I think.
Meath v Wicklow, would expect Meath to win narrowly but can't trust them given form.
Monaghan v Antrim, dodgy and very even especially given Darren Hughes is now out for Monaghan.
That's a good price and is certainly in with a good chance of coming off.
Tipp are certainly capable of covering a -6 handicap if in the mood but what's the vibe from Limerick coming into this? Is anyone giving them much of a chance?
Limerick are fairly quiet at the moment, maybe trying to come in under the radar a little. I expect them to give it their all but begin to fade away with 15 mins left.
Im sure some of our Limerick posters will have a better idea, but just looking in from the outside, the whole incident with Ciaran Carey, how badly they faded in the league final and the loss of Seamus Hickey are big negatives, their forward line looks potentailly very good but I think they will concede far too much.
Looks a good accum for the weekend with Paddy Power
Kerry (-11) @ evens
Meath (-3) @ 10/11
Monaghan (-2) @ 11/10
Tipp (-6) @ 10/11
10 euro stake pays out 153 euro,not bad.
Only one id be worried about is Wicklow against Meath,but you would think Meath should have enough
PP Wicklow specials :
Score first lead HT win FT 14/1
HT FT 8/1
Was thinking of doing a 3 or 4 fold maybe
Kerry -11 points
Tipp -6 points for the hurling
Overs in the Leinster match(not up yet but i reckon it should be 35- 40)
and maybe meath -2 points
What do ye think,each one is around evens?
From what I've heard over the last couple of days the vibes coming from the Limerick camp are not good at all and Tipp -6 could be the bet of the weekend I think. Limerick are (seemingly) not going well at all and if Tipp hit form I think ye could give them a beating. Evs for the -6 handicap looks very tempting to me.
Not sure what you mean by that?
In the over/under total points category for example:
Over 37.5 points or under 37.5 points.if you bet over,you win for 38 points or over but lose if it has a total of 37 points
Oh right, I thought it might be something like that.
But do you really think there will be a points total of 35-40 in the Meath v Wicklow game? That seems a little on the high side.
