All-Ireland Football Championship favourites Dublin will look to progress to the semi-final stage of this year's championship when they face a Monaghan side that needed extra-time to see off Kildare a week ago.

All-Ireland Football Championship favourites Dublin will look to progress to the semi-final stage of this year's championship when they face a Monaghan side that needed extra-time to see off Kildare a week ago.

Dublin have only gotten stronger at the head of the market as the season has gone on and the 1/16 on offer about them dumping out the Ulster finalists is testament to the feeling about their claims for this year.

Monaghan were put to the pin of their collar by Kildare in gruelling conditions last Saturday night and Dublin should be able to ease their way into the last four by a decent winning margin.

Dublin to dominate from start to finish is more than possible and for them to score first, lead at half-time and lead at full-time is 5/6 but it is in the handicap market that punters will look to get it right.

In the handicap betting Dublin -10 is 1/1 and if they can cut open the Monaghan defence, that is appealing.

The first of tomorrow's games is between Donegal and Armagh with the latter certainly proving a rejuvenated outfit with Paul Grimley, Kieran McGeeney and the siege mentality at the helm.

Donegal should prove too strong, though, - just about. Armagh can take a lot of positives from the year but their momentum may only take them to within 1-3 points of Donegal which is 3/1.

Sunday sees the first of the All-Ireland Hurling semi-finals where Limerick will try and make sure Kilkenny miss out on reaching the final for a second year in a row.

Limerick bounced back from their Munster final defeat by Cork to annihilate a promising Wexford side and maybe it is worth taking a chance on Limerick at 9/4.
