The All-Ireland hurling semi-finals take place this weekend as the final four sides face off in their respective clashes for a spot in the finals and a chance to lift the Liam McCarthy Cup.
On Saturday, reigning All-Ireland and current Leinster champions Galway will battle it out against Clare, who saw off Wexford in the quarter-finals to set up the clash.
The Tribesmen are firm 4/11 favourites to seek out victory and a chance to defend their title, whilst Clare are 3/1 to cause an upset.
Cork will take on Limerick in the second semi-final at Croke Park on Sunday with the odds suggesting it will be a close affair.
Munster champions Cork are Even money to fend off Limerick and book their spot in the finals while the Shannonsiders, who will be in Croker for the first time since their semi-final defeat to Kilkenny in 2014, are priced at 11/10 to win.
As with all senior GAA championship matches, BoyleSports’ exclusive GAA offer; double winnings as a free bet if there is a goal in the first 10 minutes of the match, will apply to the semi-final fixtures.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “It’s all about Galway at 4/11 in the match betting as they prepare to show down with Clare in Saturday’s semi-final. The Tribesmen are red hot 8/11 favourites to retain the Liam McCarthy cup having shortened in from 10/11.”
She added: “Cork edge Even money favouritism to see off Limerick on Sunday, but punters are firmly behind Limerick to do the job as they latch onto their 11/10 odds and make the Shannonsiders the match betting liability.”
