Solid Dublin can repel Tyrone in repeat of All-Ireland final at Croke Park

All-Ireland champions Dublin can deliver once again on home soil at Croke Park
1 of 1

Dublin v Tyrone

Eir Sport 1, 7pm Saturday

Dublin have not conceded a goal in either of their home games in Division 1 and they look great value at odds-against to keep another clean sheet when Tyrone visit Croke Park in a repeat of last year's All-Ireland final.

Tyrone stumbled out of the traps in the league and a nine-point loss to Mayo in round two, at home in Omagh, suggested they would be staring relegation to Division 2 in the face. 

It has not worked out that way, though, and a last-gasp draw with Roscommon has been followed by impressive victories over Monaghan and Cavan. They seem to be back to themselves. 

Tyrone will get numbers behind the ball and play on the counter-attack. The layers have set the handicap at four points, which seems about two points short of what it should be given the game is at Croke Park.

Tyrone are probably not any better than Galway or Mayo and Dublin destroyed both of those teams on home soil, allowing each of them to score 0-7 and winning by 11 and eight points. 

This should be straightforward for Dublin and odds-against offers about a victory by five points or more seem generous.

Kerry v Mayo

Eir Sport 2, 7pm Saturday

Kerry are just one win away from a spot in the Division 1 decider and it is no surprise to see them odds-on at home to a Mayo side who fluffed their lines against Galway last time out. 

This game has the look of a high-scoring encounter and the advice is to back them to score over 30.5 points and three or more goals.

When these sides met in Castlebar in the league last year, it finished 1-15 to 2-9 to Kerry (34 points) and a similar scoring spree looks in store. 

Kerry are averaging 15.8 points per game in Division 1 and they managed to score 1-18 against All-Ireland champions Dublin on home soil. Their attacking flair is back and they should have enough quality up front to pose plenty of problems for a fragile Mayo full-back line.

Monaghan v Cavan

2pm Saturday

It is worth giving Monaghan one more chance and they look value at a shade of odds-on to see off Ulster rivals Cavan by three points or more. 

Monaghan have home advantage, have some key players back in their side and need to issue a statement of intent with the summer championship edging closer.

Cavan offered no sort of resistance against Tyrone and they could struggle to keep tabs on a Monaghan side who have had the upper hand in their recent meetings.

Monaghan -2
