Boylesports offer 9/1 about a draw in normal time tomorrow evening and if you really fancy it you can have the same odds about it finishing all square after extra-time meaning Kilkenny and Tipperary will have to go again.

Boylesports offer 9/1 about a draw in normal time tomorrow evening and if you really fancy it you can have the same odds about it finishing all square after extra-time meaning Kilkenny and Tipperary will have to go again.

That is unlikely but it wouldn't be the strangest thing in the world as little is expected to separate the two sides.

Speculation always surrounds Brian Cody and just how long he can go on for but rumours are that this will be his last year at the helm of the Kilkenny senior team and if anyone can conjure up a plan to see off a gallant Tipperary it has to be Cody and his backroom team.

Both teams are 9/10 in the 'Lift The Trophy' market and Kilkenny do look the pick there. In the winning margin market it is probably safest to go with Kilkenny by 1-3 points at odds of 4/1.

It's 12/5 that there will be 51-55 points in the game and providing the match is won in normal time that could look a good bet.

The first goalscorer is always a popular market and Bonner Maher could be worth a small bet at 15/2, while in the last goal-scorer market what a fairytale it would be if 10/1 shot Henry Shefflin rose a very significant green flag in the latter stages of the game.

One bet that stands out is Kilkenny to score last, Tipperary to lead at half-time and Kilkenny to win the match, which is priced up at 15/2, while it is 4/1 that Tipperary lead at half-time and Kilkenny lead at full-time but for those expecting a real tight game they can take a punt on a draw at half-time and a draw at full time which is 28/1.
