Dublin Title Defence To Get Off To Shaky Start

The Allianz Football League returns this coming weekend with a monster line up of matches to look forward to. It all kicks off on Saturday with four fixtures to whet your county football appetite.

Out of the four, two will be shown live on Setanta Sports: Donegal v Derry and Tyrone v Monaghan. Donegal host last year’s runners up Derry and are 4/7 to secure the home win; Derry on the other hand are priced at 7/4 to get things off to a positive start. Monaghan will travel to Healy Park but are 7/4 to claim the away victory, as Tyrone are on offer at 4/7.

Title holders Dublin start off their bid to defend the title with and away match to Cork on Sunday. It is even money for the Dubs to triumph. Cork are also on offer at evens to get their season off the winning ways with the draw priced at 15/2.

Kerry will look to further strengthen their claim for most titles and start things off with a clash against Mayo.

With the daunting task of performing in Fitzgerald Stadium, Mayo are underdogs at 6/5 to win with Kerry expected to thrive at home at 5/6.

The National Football league is back and not a moment too soon. It’s all about the home advantage for the two live matches as Tyrone and Donegal are both 4/7 to win their respective opening matches.

It is a close call between Dublin and Cork in their opening clash as both clubs go into battle at even money. The draw has seen some support at 15/2 ahead of the match on Saturday.
