Wexford hurling fans don't seem to be too optimistic about their side's All-Ireland credentials, according to a report by Paddy Power.

The Model county kick off their championship campaign away to Westmeath on Sunday and despite reaching the All-Ireland quarter-finals last year only 10pc of their own supporters are tipping them for glory. 

Tipperary fans are the most loyal however; the report reveals 76pc of Premier county pundits placed money on Eamon O'Shea's men.

Tipperary are currently 5/2 to make up for last years All-Ireland final replay disappointment and get their hands on Liam McCarthy.

Kilkenny fans come in second place as 60pc of Cats fans put their money on Brian Cody's men. while across the river nearly half (46pc) of Waterford punters feel this might be their year following an impressive League final demolition of Cork.

Davy Fitzgerald is still going to do the business with Clare according to 45pc of Banner supporters willing to put their money where their mouth is.

Galway (41pc), Cork (37pc), Cork (34pc), and Dublin (17pc) fans complete the chasing pack ahead of the Slaneysiders.
