What are the odds of Kilkenny lifting Liam again? Bookies show their hand
Brian Cody’s Cats are joint last favourites to reclaim the Liam McCarthy cup this year.
Kilkenny have been installed as 6-1 outsiders to claim their first All-Ireland since 2015 by BoyleSports.
And in what could suit the Cats preparations for their semi-final showdown with Cork, the bookies clearly favour the winner of the other tie to go on and claim this year’s championship.
Champions Limerick, unsurprisingly, are favourites to claim their third All-Ireland in four years at odds of 4-7.
Their semi-final opponents Waterford are second favourites to lift Liam – at odds of 9-2 – for what would be the Déise’s first All-Ireland since 1959.
Like Kilkenny, Cork have also been given odds of 6-1 to go on and win their first All-Ireland since 2005.
BoyleSports spokesperson Sarah Kinsella said of the latest odds: “Waterford knocked the Premier County from the All-Ireland after a decisive win in Pairc Ui Chaoimh with their All-Ireland SHC hopes now into 9/2 from 12/1.
“They face the favourites Limerick in the semi-finals and although the Treaty have eased to 4/7 from 1/2 to successfully defend their title, they 2/7 to deny 3/1 shots Waterford a spot in the final.”
