It's madness having a bet on these matches. We won't know what kind of team lines out until throw-in. These games are used as trials these days.

Very true Cavan_Slasher, that basically what they are. Many players will be gone from panels once the league begins.

I wouldn't bet a bag of magic beans on any of these games.

agree totally.only way to have a bet on any of the above games would be if you had inside info re team selections, seriousness of interest etc.for instance kerry are using it as preparation for the forthcoming u21 championship and using the entire u21 panel..thats well known but other stuff might not be..im sure the major bookies will have their research done before pricing up games..

NUIG to beat Mayo 2/1

Mayo won this game last year by 2 points. This
year 27 members of Mayo's 2016 championship squad flew to South Africa on Tuesday for a ten-day team holiday.
That means goalkeeper Rob Hennelly is the only player from the All-Ireland replay defeat that is available to Mayo manager Stephen Rochford for the FBD Connacht League clash against NUI, Galway in Castlebar.

Taking off my green glasses, id still have a nice bet on Meath to easily beat Wicklow in navan, new manager, 6 players starting who weren't involved last year, trying to make a claim for league. I think this will be a victory for Meath

Roscommon could well lose to sligo it
Majority of first team will be involved with college sides including and Roscommon have gone complete opposit to last year and have had only been together 2 to 3 weeks and very few trainings thus far.

Well actually I thought I made it clear, but perhaps not,I was talking about Meath covering the handicap. . Hope you win a few pound on it

whats the handicap? 10 or so points I presume dodgy betting handicaps this time of year but I hear meath have been in heavy training 2 months or so going hard for promotion so they should be flying at the moment.

Yeah they been hard at for 2 months, still some places up for grabs, that's why keoghan and Reilly playing (even though reilly in all ire semi in couple weeks) so the new lads can get a idea of what ball to expect etc. See how they working , nucleus of team is there, about 6 places up for grabs, 50+ players tried out so far, plus the u21s to com in, no one can say Andy hasn't given everyone a chance to prove themselves. That's why I think they will cover handicap, however at ht the team could change completely so like any bet its a risk.

Yeah forget that a lot of our college lads are picked today. We should be strong enough even with very little collective work done.

Nice way to start the new season with a 2/1 winner. NUIG won by 2 points

Mayo 2-16 v NUIG 1-21

Good shout. The odds flipped on the teams very quickly on Friday but I took your advice and stuck it in a double with Carlow at 11/10 to beat Maynooth.

What's best for tonight or the weekend?

I fancy Offaly to beat Longford at 5/6. Dodgy really this time of the year with last minute changes to teams etc.
