Experience of Galway sways bets their way

All-Ireland champions Galway have flirted with the exit door a couple of times during their defence of Liam MacCarthy but now Micheál Donoghue is just 70 minutes away from overseeing a two in-a-row.

A young Limerick team stand in the way, as this fascinating hurling championship draws to a conclusion and there will be plenty of neutrals hoping that backers of the draw at 8/1 will come good.

In a tight final, Galway's experience can help them edge this. Galway to win by 1-3 points is 7/2 with BoyleSports but Limerick to start well and lead at half time but then lose the game is a 9/2 shot.

If you do fancy a Galway win, BoyleSports have enhanced the price of Galway to win by 1-6 points out to 13/8.

Limerck's Aaron Gillane has been causing plenty of trouble for defences this year and there could be some value in him scoring a goal at anytime at 3/1.

If Galway are to win, Joe Canning will have to make an impact on the game and therefore the 2/1 about him getting a Sunday Game Man Of The Match nomination is a good bet - 6/1 for him to win.

Meanwhile, the Premier League returns and the clash of Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge this evening is the pick of the weekend.

The new managers of the London teams got off to varying starts last weekend and the home team are hard to oppose at 5/6. Chelsea are 5/2 to win with a clean sheet.

Man United looked comfortable against Leicester in the opening game but then found themselves hanging on at the end. Brighton might not pose the same threat and 3/4 about the visitors in tomorrow's 4pm kick-off looks worth including in any weekend accumulators.

Chelsea, Everton, Tottenham -1 and United works out at just under 10/1.
