Limerick All The Rage To Top National Hurling League Division 1
Limerick are being strongly backed to top a big-hitting National Hurling Division 1A ahead of the curtain-raisers this weekend.
John Kiely’s side begin their league campaign against Munster rivals Tipperary on Saturday evening and are hot 4/9 favourites to begin where they left off at the end of last year’s All-Ireland-winning championship campaign.
We have clipped Limerick into even money from 6/5 this week to finish on top of Division 1A,
…with Galway and Tipperary vying for second favouritism but struggling to attract the same level of support at 4/1 apiece.
A National League final clash will only take place should the winners of both top divisions happen to meet in the Championship and it’s Kilkenny who are leading a tighter betting heat in Division 1B.
The Cats are hot 2/5 shots for their Parnell Park clash against Dublin and 6/5 favourites to come out on top in Division 1B.
Clare (2/1) and Wexford (7/2) however aren’t without their fair share of backing ahead of respective openers against Antrim and Laois on Sunday.
Limerick are 6/4 favourites to win a third league title in a row ahead of Kilkenny at 5/1 should the Championship schedule serve up a decider.
