Don't know where you'd find a place to put a bet like that on but as you say if they avoid each other they have a great chance. I could give you the 4 provincial winners now,4 bankers, but wouldn't be great odds.

Might have to request a bet but because its 2 massive games names the likes of paddy power etc might have mayo and tyrone to qualify as a special bet

I wouldn't think they're bankers. Dublin yes. Kerry probably. But it's 50 50 between Donegal and monaghan ,and roscommon have a real shout in connacht.

Who are they out of interest
1 always causes a upset there could possibly be 3 this year as I believe connacht Ulster and Munster favourites are vulnerable to upsets in there provinces this year.

Dublin, Kerry, Monaghan and Galway, I think we have seen the upsets if you can call them that already, many would have fancied Mayo and Tyrone to win their provinces this year, but Galway and Monaghan were deserving winners of both games, I don't think Donegal are developed enough yet to beat Monaghan and we have along road yet to travel to even get to the Ulster final and there's no guarantee we will, though we'd be strongly fancied to make it that far anyway I suppose.

Galway are favourites for Connacht but they need to let their forwards cut loose a bit more. Loads of talent in their forward line, makes no sense in squandering it. I definitely won't rule out Roscommon winning Connaught. Their defence needs to improve but they have plenty of good attacking options themselves. Galway have an advantage that they did great in a higher standard diivision in the league. If both, as expected reach, the Connacht final it should be a great game and even if Tally is a Galway coach I rate McStay over Walsh. Could be the decisive factor.

I'm confident Galway will win Connaught, they just beat the 2nd best team in the country away and you could argue that they didn't even play as well as they can in that match, there's a flakiness about Rosscommon for me, I just don't see them being able to top this powerful Galway team, it will take the likes of Dublin Kerry or Monaghan to have the potential to beat them in my opinion.

We were the second best team in Ireland last September though. Our own over-defensive tactics against Galway did us no favours and we don't have forwards if Galway and Roscommon's quality. Hopefully we can have a transfornation that happened after the drawn Roscommon game last year. Showed little of that form since. I think The Rossies have improved on last year and McStay strives to get them to learn from their mistakes. I'm not sure Walsh does that so well. Both teams playing to their strengths in a Connacht final will be a Galway win. But finals are unpredictable, unfortunately!

I see Bonner has ye in the long grass! Ye didn't stay up but he's bringing the attack on in leaps and bounds.

The beat mayo last year didn't stop roscommon beating then by 9 points in salthill
