After their All-Ireland SHC Final epic replay with Galway on Sunday, Kilkenny have already been installed as the even money favourites to retain their crown in 2013.
Brian Cody’s men have already been heavily backed by punters to lift the Liam McCarthy Cup again next year. Meanwhile, this season’s runners-up Galway will gain some comfort from the fact that their impressive young team are second favourites at 4/1 to claim the crown next year.
As soon as Eoin Larkin lifted the cup on Sunday, we were inundated with queries on odds for them to retain their title next year. Even though they’re at evens, we’ve still had a number of punters backing them to win a remarkable 10th title in 14 seasons.
2010 winners Tipperary are at 9/2, whilst Limerick, Dublin, Clare and Cork are all 14/1 to overcome mighty Kilkenny and triumph in next season’s Championship.
