All-Ireland Hurling Odds 2023
Limerick – All-Ireland Favourites
Limerick are strong 11/10 favourites to win the All-Ireland Hurling Championship in 2023.
This is the county that are dominating modern day hurling with their trademark style of short passing build-up and intense pressing on defence. The Treaty County have now won three-straight All-Irelands following their victory in 2022 which also made it four out of the last five for John Kiely’s men.
This Limerick team has to be considered a dynasty given their incredible run of success over the past five years. To add to their All-Ireland success this team has won two league titles and four straight Munster Championships in the previous five year period.
It was all looking good for Limerick after a strong spring which saw them win the National League. The Munster Championship has been a different story however as they have struggled to dominate as many expected them to.
They struggled to a victory over Waterford in their opening game and then Clare were finally able to get one over on their neighbours as they pulled off a one point upset.
Tipperary were next up and Limerick were once again fancied but this time they were held to a draw. Despite their poor showing so far in this Munster Championship they are still considered the team to beat in the race for this year’s All-Ireland and with the quality in their squad it’s hard to bet against them.
Tipperary – All-Ireland 2nd Favourites
Second in the All-Ireland hurling odds 2023 betting is Tipperary at odds of 9/2.
Tipp were terrible in 2022, there’s just no other way to put it. For a proud hurling county, the third most successful of all-time in terms of All-Ireland titles, they will certainly have fire in their bellies to right the wrongs of last season in this Championship.
Despite that poor 2022 there are reasons for optimism around the Premier County as they will come into the 2023 Munster series off the back of a fantastic league campaign where they won all five of their games with a points differential of +59, a tally that was twice as good as the next best team.
With one round to play in the Munster Championship round robin stage Tipp find themselves as the only unbeaten team following a win and two draws from their opening three games. They also know that a win against Waterford will see them advance to the Munster Final to take on Clare with an All-Ireland semi-final spot on the line.
A strong league and Munster Championship makes Tipperary deserving of second favouritism here in the betting for the All-Ireland Hurling Championship.
Coming in as the third most likely team to lift the Liam MacCarthy in 2023 is Clare at odds of 5/1.
The Banner County men are now going on 10 years since their All-Ireland win in 2013 and they will need to upset the odds if they are to get their hands on that prized cup once more.
Clare were many people’s fancy to be the team that would top Limerick in the 2022 All-Ireland series having drawn with them twice (after 70 minutes) in the Munster Championship. The Banner men followed their impressive Munster campaign up with a dismal display in the All-Ireland semi-final where they were played off the park by Kilkenny in a humiliating defeat.
The league didn’t offer too much hope for Clare either as they stumbled to a fourth place finish in Division 1A with two wins, two losses and a draw. The Banner men put a poor league behind them to qualify for the Munster Final after three wins from their four games in the round robin stage of the competition.
The team’s most impressive performance was in their win over Limerick, the team that has dominated modern hurling. Clare just seem to be Limerick’s bogey team and given their performances in this year’s Championship they look like good value here at 5/1 in the betting.
Next up in the betting is Galway who are rated as the most likely non-Munster team to win Liam MacCarthy at odds of 7/1. The westerners are led by Kilkenny legend Henry Shefflin and look like another serious contender to take Limerick’s crown this summer.
Galway made it to the All-Ireland semi-final in 2022 where they put in a performance to be proud of against Limerick but in the end came up three points short. Perhaps it was a year too early for Shefflin and his hurlers but this does look like a team that has what it takes to challenge the Treaty County and will not be scared of the challenge of overturning them.
The 2017 All-Ireland champions come into the 2023 Hurling Championship on the back of a solid league campaign which saw them win 3 of their 5 games and finish Division 1A in third place.
Galway have started strong in the Leinster Championship as they top the table after the first four rounds with an unbeaten record of 3 wins and 1 draw which came against Kilkenny.
Kilkenny are actually the last team to knock Limerick out of the Championship and that result came all the way back in 2019. That was the only year of the last five that Limerick didn’t win the Liam MacCarthy and it was because Kilkenny beat them by the narrowest margin in that year’s All-Ireland SHC semi-final.
This is Kilkenny’s first season since 1998 that they will be managed by someone other than Brian Cody who resigned from his role as county manager last summer following a legendary spell which saw the Cats win 11 All-Irelands and 18 Leinster titles.
Kilkenny had a successful spring as they played their hurling in Division 1B where they won four out of their five games with only a solitary loss which saw them finish second.
Can Kilkenny stop Limerick’s march for four straight All-Ireland hurling titles? They were the second favourites earlier in the year but are not as fancied at this stage of the season.
Next up in the betting for the 2023 All-Ireland Hurling Championship is Cork at odds of 16/1.
Cork are the second most successful hurling county in Ireland with 30 All-Ireland titles to their credit.
Unfortunately, the Rebels are experiencing a famine when it comes to All-Ireland Hurling titles as they are now approaching 20 years without lifting the Liam McCarthy. Their last All-Ireland win came all the way back in 2005 and while they are not without a chance in 2023 of ending that drought they will need to outperform expectations as they still look a few steps behind Limerick.
