Cavan Odds Slashed For First Ulster Title In 22 Years
The end of Cavan’s 18-year wait to beat Monaghan in the Championship has seen their odds on becoming Ulster Champions plummet.
Mickey Graham’s side hit some crucial scores in the second half to fend of a Farney fightback and progress to the semi-finals where they will face Armagh on June 2nd.
Before the weekend, the Breffni men were 14/1 shots to lift their first Anglo-Celt Cup since 1997,
but we have slashed their chances into 4/1 off the back of the Monaghan victory
…meaning they are now third favourites for the provincial title behind Tyrone (11/10) and Donegal (5/2).
Armagh earned the right to face Cavan in the semi-final after an epic clash at Páirc Esler, where extra-time was needed to separate them from Down by a single point. The Orchardmen have also gained their fair share of supporters in the market, seeing their odds of an Ulster Championship title cut into 15/2 from 14/1.
Tyrone remain the best placed sides of the Ulster contingent in the outright market, with a Red Hand All-Ireland win priced up at 11/1 behind hot 8/11 favourites Dublin. Cavan were 300/1 outsiders to get their hands on Sam Maguire, but those odds have also been revised into just 66/1.
