In what can only be described as a mammoth weekend of sporting fixtures, two Mayo teams certainly helped to lift the blues off us Mayo folk still trying to come to terms with the fact that our quest for Sam McGuire in 2018 is over. With the Wimbledon champions crowned and the World cup now decided we can now fully dedicate our time to all matters GAA.
It’s game eight of Mayo’s 2016 championship campaign and the biggest one of all, the All-Ireland final against the reining champions and hot favourites Dublin. Mayo are priced at 3/1, the Dubs are 4/11 while the draw is available at 10/1. In layman’s terms the bookmakers don’t see Dublin been beaten. The handicap betting is set at -3 points meaning the expert odd makers feel Dublin will win by about three.
There has been a lot of talk about the scheduling of championship matches in Mayo for this weekend. I have experienced both ends of the stick with club and county and it's not very nice for club players to be left in limbo as regards preparing for big games only for them to be called off at the 11th hour, but for me nothing should get in the way of Mayo's pursuit of the holy grail.
