TONIGHT (7.0)

Division 1

Mayo v Dublin: MacHale Park, P O'Sullivan (Kerry), SETANTA. DUBLIN were tanked by 12 points on their last visit to Castlebar, in 2012, and this looks a precarious rematch against a top-of-the-pile Mayo with six points. But Cillian O'Connor is out injured - one of five Mayo changes - and the visitors patently need a result to kickstart their league/steer clear of relegation trouble. Maybe, just maybe, tonight's the night.

ODDS: Mayo evens, Draw 15/2, Dub 11/10

VERDICT: Dublin

Division 2

Meath v Laois: Páirc Tailteann, M McNally (Monaghan), SETANTA. THE embattled O'Moore men finally got motoring against Ros, but the Royals on their own turf look a tougher nut.

ODDS: Meath 4/9, Draw 15/2, Laois 5/2

VERDICT: Meath

TOMORROW (2.0 unless stated)

Division 1

Kerry v Donegal: Austin Stack Park, Tralee, R Hickey (Clare), TG4. TWO sides surely in backlash mode after Kerry lost to the old Cork enemy by 11 points while Donegal only hit 1-4, no points from play, against Monaghan.

ODDS: Kerry 1/2, Draw 8/1, Donegal 11/5

VERDICT: Kerry

Monaghan v Derry: St Tiernach's Park, Clones, 2.30, S Hurson (Tyrone). AN inviting chance for Monaghan to edge clear of relegation trouble, while virtually sealing Derry's downward fate.

ODDS: Mon 4/7, Draw 15/2, Derry 2/1

VERDICT: Monaghan

Tyrone v Cork: Healy Park Omagh, 2.30, M Duffy (Sligo). HAVING plundered 3-17 against Kerry, it will be intriguing to see how Cork cope with Mickey Harte's blanket. Who says the home team has to attack? ODDS: Tyrone 4/5, Draw 15/2, Cork 11/8

VERDICT: Tyrone

Division 2

Galway v Cavan: Pearse Stadium, 12.45, M Deegan (Laois).

Odds: Galway 1/2, Draw 15/2, Cavan 9/4

Verdict: Galway

Kildare v Roscommon: St Conleth's Park, Newbridge, F Kelly (Longford).

Odds: Kildare 8/11, Draw 15/2, Ros 6/4
