ODDS | Limerick the bookies favourites for four-in-a-row while Gillane is HOTY frontrunner

Aaron Gillane is the front runner for the HOTY award and also the man of the match gong, ahead of Kyle Hayes and Gearoid Hegarty.

Limerick are 4/11 to win the game in normal time with Kilkenny at 11/4 inside 70 minutes. A draw is 9/1, there hasn’t been a draw since the 2015 final where Kilkenny were held by Galway in Croker.

To win the championship outright, Limerick are shorter at 3/10 with Kilkenny on 9/4. The over/under for points in the game is 53.5 (5/6). Last year the game finished at 1-31 to 2-26, the equivalent of 56 points.

Aaron Gillane is the front runner for the man of the match award at 5/1, ahead of Kyle Hayes and Gearoid Hegarty. Both of those men are 10/1 but have won the award before, Hayes in 2018 and Hegarty twice in 2020 and last year. Cody is Kilkenny’s favoured man for the prize he won in the semi-final at the weekend at 10/1 also. 2021 Final MOTM Cian Lynch is 11/1.

Gillane‘s tour de force against Galway sees his odds slated for the hurler of the year crown as he is now priced at 1/2. His nearest challenger is Eoin Cody at 7/2. A man of the match perfjoamcne from Darragh O’Donovan moves him into the top three of the betting at 8/1.

He is ahead of Limerick duo Hayes (10/1) and Tom Morrissey (16/1). Next on the list is Huw Lawlor who is the same price at TJ Reid (20/1). Barry Nash and Diarmaid Byrnes can both be got at 25/1, as can Kilkenny’s Mikey Butler with Clare’s Shane O’Donnell the best priced player that has been eliminated at 33/1.
