ALLIANZ HURLING LEAGUE
CLARE v KERRY (Ennis, Today 2.30)
ALREADY this division is starting to resemble a predictable two-horse race at the top.
Expect the Banner to tighten their grip on second place with plenty to spare.
ODDS: Clare 1/20, Draw 16/1, Kerry 9/1
DOWN v LAOIS (Ballycran, Tomorrow 1.30)
Laois boss Brendan Fennelly isn't best amused by Down's split personality, judging from the following quote: "Up there, Down have beaten Carlow and were leading Limerick with 12 minutes remaining. But then they go down to Clare and made a mess of the league."
By that he means shipping a 31-point defeat.
Home comforts should ensure a much closer (albeit losing) contest.
ODDS: Down 16/5, Draw 12/1, Laois 1/4
CARLOW v LIMERICK (Dr Cullen Pk, Tom. 2.30)
Carlow's slim promotion hopes took a battering when losing in Antrim by a point.
High-flying Limerick will now inflict the killer blow.
ODDS: Carlow 9/2, Draw 12/1, Limerick 1/6
WESTMEATH v ANTRIM (Cusack Pk, Tom. 2.30)
Westmeath prevailed by a point in last year's corresponding fixture, a result that ultimately helped to stave off relegation.
Now they're desperate for history to repeat itself, but you couldn't be overly confident.
ODDS: Westmeath 11/5, Draw 10/1, Antrim 2/5
Cats scalp can ease the Ernesiders crisis
ALLIANZ FOOTBALL LEAGUE
KILKENNY v FERMANAGH (Jenkinstown, Today 5.0)

ODDS: Kilkenny 25/1, Draw 33/1, Fermanagh 1/1000
WICKLOW v ROSCOMMON (Aughrim, Tom. 2.30)
Forgive us our fence-sitting trespasses -- more stalemate for Micko's draw specialists.
ODDS: Wicklow 11/10, Draw 7/1, Roscommon 10/11
LEITRIM v CARLOW
(Carrick-on-Shannon, Tom 2.30)
Close but no cigar for Carlow.
ODDS: Leitrim 4/7, Draw 7/1, Carlow 7/4
CLARE v LONGFORD
(Ennis, Tomorrow 2.30)
Buoyed by their U21 heroes, Longford to keep promotion dream alive.
