The main man and match-winner for Waterford last time out was Full-Forward Stephen Bennett who plays his club hurling for Ballysaggart hitting a total of (2-04, 0-03 frees). He will be the man for Clare to stop this weekend.
One of Clare’s newest hurling stars Mark Rodgers was the match-winner for the Banner Country against Cork in the opening weekend of league action finishing the game with a brilliant total of 0-13 (10f 1 65). Looks to be the man to watch out for this weekend again.
Waterford v Clare Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Waterford 0-18 2-20 Clare
Waterford saw off the challenge of Offaly last weekend following a dominant final quarter performance as they look to build on what was an unimpressive 2023 campaign.
Clare are not only coming into this fixture off better form from 2023, but they also have come into this game off a victory against a highly rated Cork side which could stand them in good stead for their early season league credentials.
Clare have had the better of Waterford in recent times and I expect it to be more of the same on this occasion.
Best Bet: Clare by 7 to 9 @ 7//1
