Dublin Odds Slashed For Leinster Hurling Title
Punters in the capital are backing Dublin’s Hurlers to be crowned Leinster champions after they booked a date in their first provincial final in seven years with a shock win over Galway.
Mattie Kenny’s side raced into a 0-06 to 0-01 lead in the opening 20 minutes at Croke Park on Saturday and were never caught as they registered a four-point victory to tee up an appearance in the Leinster decider.
A first provincial championship for the Boys in Blue since 2013 is now a 9/4 shot from 10/1,
…while an All-Ireland victory has been clipped into 20/1 having been an unlikely 50/1 shot before throw-in.
Galway meanwhile have been eased out to 13/2 from 3/1 to get their hands on the Liam MacCarthy Cup with a route through the qualifiers now required for the Tribesmen.
Kilkenny later joined the Dubs in the Leinster final thanks to an epic 2-37 to 2-29 victory over Wexford after extra-time.
A late flurry of scores from Kilkenny finally put daylight between the sides and the Cats will start the decider as hot 1/3 favourites to win their second successive provincial title and 6/1 from 10/1 to go all the way.
