Kilkenny manager Brian Cody's team have slipped in the betting
Kilkenny have slipped down the rankings in the betting for the All-Ireland senior hurling championship, and now they can be backed at 4-1 to win the MacCarthy Cup.
Following their 16 point rout of All-Ireland champions, Tipperary in the National Hurling League Ffnal on Sunday, Galway are now 7/2 second favourites from 7/1 to lift the Liam MacCarthy Cup in September.
As a result of the defeat to Galway, reigning champions Tipperary have been eased to 6/4 from 11/10 with 36 time winners, Kilkenny drifting out to 4/1 from 7/2.
Waterford are priced at 8/1 with 2013 champions Clare next in the betting at 9/1. It’s then 20/1 about Cork and neighbours Limerick whilst Dublin are priced at 33/1 alongside Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford.
Liam Glynn, BoyleSports spokesperson said: “Galway certainly put Tipperary in their place in the NHL final and as a result the Tribesmen are now 7/2 from 7/1 to lift the Liam MacCarthy Cup having last lifted it back in 1988.”
He added: “Tipperary have been eased out to 6/4 to retain the All-Ireland senior hurling crown whilst Kilkenny have also seen a drift, to 4/1, to lift the trophy come September for a record 37th time.”
