Little separated them in the league final earlier in the year but now the stakes are even higher as Kilkenny and Tipperary do battle in the All-Ireland Hurling Final at Croke Park on Sunday and it could be an afternoon to remember for the Premier County.

Little separated them in the league final earlier in the year but now the stakes are even higher as Kilkenny and Tipperary do battle in the All-Ireland Hurling Final at Croke Park on Sunday and it could be an afternoon to remember for the Premier County.

Going against Kilkenny at any stage can often prove to be a massive mistake and when you get to a final they are extremely hard to beat but Tipperary stunned Cork in the All-Ireland semi-final and may be able to do something similar on this occasion.

Kilkenny are, unsurprisingly, favourites but Tipperary have been scoring goals for fun this season and that could prove the difference on Sunday afternoon.

You can again expect little between the two sides and there will be many who fancy seeing a replay with the odds for the draw priced up at 10/1, but maybe it is best to go with Tipperary to win by 1-3 points at 4/1.

Seamus Callanan has been in red-hot goal-scoring form this season ad it would be little surprise if he was the first to raise a green flag on the most important day of all and he is 11/2 to do just that.

Tipperary will have to start well if they are going to go on and be victorious and it is 11/2 for the underdogs to score first, lead at half-time and win the game and 100/30 to win both halves.

Hopefully, the weather will help insure it is a free-flowing game and over 49.5 points is 1/1 with Boylesports.

For those who don't expect a draw, Kilkenny are 4/6 to lift the Liam McCarthy, while Tipperary are 6/5.
