GAA: Football Championship Sunday match betting preview and tips
David Jennings believes there will be an upset in Ballybofey
Donegal v Tyrone
When to watch
RTE 2, 1.30pm Sunday
3pts 7-4 general
Saturday football preview
Too much has been read into Donegal's terrific record at home in Ballybofey and it is hard to resist having a wager on Tyrone at 7-4.
When these sides met at the venue a fortnight ago, Donegal were four points too good. They prevailed on a scoreline of 2-17 to 2-13, but that was the league, this is the championship, and Tyrone have much more scope for improvement.
Mickey Harte tinkered with a few things after that clash and they secured their Division 1 status in the league with an away win against Mayo last weekend. That was a sign of how far this Tyrone team had come in just seven days.
We have long thought Tyrone's forwards were not good enough to become All-Ireland contenders but Conor McKenna's return from Australia has given a new lease of life to their attack.
When you add McKeena to an attack that already includes Mattie Donnelly, Peter Harte and Niall Sludden you begin to believe in Tyrone.
There is also Darren McCurry, Daragh Canavan and Kyle Coney to call upon, so suddenly Harte is not short of option up front.
It is that flair up front, and their ability to kick accurately, which makes them so appetising at 7-4.
Donegal might be a bit overrated and, if you restrict Michael Murphy's impact, you go a long way to restricting Donegal.
