If the odds are correct, it will be more walkover than war in three of next weekend’s All-Ireland football quarter-finals.

Dublin 1/50 to overpower Cork (16/1); Derry 1/7 to beat Clare (11/2); Kerry 3/10 to record their third victory over Mayo (7/2) this year. That leaves Armagh (10/11) v Galway (6/5) as the only game where, according to the markets at least, the outcome is in doubt.
