Punters Keen On Kerry Under New Boss After Dublin Upset
GAA Punters are starting to doubt Dublin’s favouritism, even at this early stage, after Monaghan shocked the reigning champions with a second half comeback in their National Football League opener on Sunday.
The hot Division 1 favourites went into the break with a 2-point advantage at Clones but the Farney overturned their deficit to run out 2-13 to 1-13 winners.
Dublin had kicked off the League campaign as 4/7 favourites to retain their title,
but the early upset has seen them drift to 4/5 to defend their title
…while Monaghan shot up the betting from 12/1 to become 6/1 third favourites.
However, it is Kerry who have attracted most of Dublin’s deserted support, after they got Peter Keane’s reign off to the perfect start with an impressive 0-11 to 0-07 victory over Tyrone in Killarney. They have been backed into 4/1 from 7/1 to take the Division 1 title ahead of their trip to Cavan this Sunday.
The antepost market for the Championship has also felt the ripple of the opening weekend of League action, with Dublin drifting slightly to 8/15 from 1/2 to win their fifth consecutive All-Ireland crown, while Monaghan are into 16/1 from 20/1 to get their hands on Sam Maguire for the first time.
