The top spot in Group 2 will be determined when Dublin take on Mayo in the neutral venue of Dr Hyde Park, in Roscommon. The match takes place on Sunday, 16th June, at 3:45pm and will be live on RTE 2 for Irish viewers, and GAA Go for those outside Ireland. The two teams come into the game with a 100% record in the group and with their qualification of the group secured. This match will determine which of these two teams finish 1st and which of these two teams finish 2nd. Finishing 1st will put either team straight into the Quarter finals of the Championship while a 2nd place spot would mean the team would face a preliminary Quarter Final in the All-Ireland and have to face a 3rd place team from a different group. Dublin were very impressive in their victory away to Cavan last time out winning by an extremely comfortable 19 points. This result came on the back of a 12 point victory versus Roscommon in round 1. Dublin have shown their dominance so far in this year's championship. Mayo have been impressive also with a 9 point victory versus Cavan in round 1 and a 2 point victory versus Connacht rivals Roscommon in what was a tight and exhilarating game for the viewer.

🏆 Dublin vs Mayo All Ireland Championship Prediction

This match is expected to be a tight one between two All Ireland contenders with both sides having 100% records in the All Ireland group phase. Although both sides are already guaranteed qualification out of the group this match can set a marker for any potential meeting between the two sides at the latter stages of the competition, potentially even in a final. This match will also decide which team finishes 1st and which finishes 2nd with the 1st placed side heading straight into the All Ireland Quarter Final and the 2nd place team having to play a preliminary Quarter Final. This could be important for later stages in the competition as fatigue may set in for 2nd place sides having to play an extra game. Both sides will be up for this game as they continue their rivalry that has seen them meet in countless All Ireland Finals in 2013, 2016 and 2020. Mayo put an end to Dublin’s 6 year unbeaten Championship record when they defeated them in the 2021 All Ireland Semi Final. Mayo defeated Dublin when the sides met in the league back in February with a dramatic late point winning them the game by a point on a scoreline of 1-12 to 0-14. Both sides are in great form and this one will be a tough one to call and should also be an exhilarating encounter live on The Sunday Game on RTE 2. Dublin are free scoring at the moment, although they look open at the back but I expect Dublin to win this one.

🔎 Dublin vs Mayo Performance Analysis

With regards to performance analysis, the most important stat to look at for both of these teams that could decide the match between the two is goals scored. Dublin are the top goal scorers in this year's Championship with a massive 14 goals in just 5 games which is an average of 2.8 goals per game. Mayo have scored 5 goals in the same amount of games as Dublin which is an average of 1 goal per game. Goals are very important in football and can change a game at any moment, and Dublin have found them in abundance this championship season. Dublin have scored in every game they have played in so far, with 3 coming against Meath, 3 coming against Offaly, 1 against Louth, 2 versus Roscommon and 5 versus Cavan. Mayo scored 2 goals versus New York, 1 against Roscommon in the Connacht semi final, 2 against Roscommon last time out, but failed to score goals against Cavan and Galway. Mayo will need to increase their goal output if they are to get the win versus goal heavy Dublin.

💯 Dublin vs Mayo All Ireland Championship Odds

The odds for this one are very much in favour of Dublin with Mayo coming in at odds of around 5.00 to get the victory in Roscommon versus Dublin. This is surprising due to Mayo’s strong start to the Championship with victories over Cavan and rivals Roscommon and they also came close to winning the Connacht Championship losing by a point to a late free, 0-16 to 0-15. Dublin have been in blistering form in this years championship easing through Leinster although they did have their troubles in the final versus Louth, and then have eased past both Roscommon and Cavan by 12 and 19 points respectively. Dublin are in red hot form this season unbeaten in all Championship games both in provincial championships and in the current All Ireland phase whereas Mayo have suffered one defeat, in the Connacht Final to Galway. It is surprising to see the odds so much in favour of Dublin. They should be favourites for this one but I believe the odds should be slightly closer, especially considering Mayo are always up for games against Dublin and put in strong performances. Dublin are the favourites for this one and this can be seen on the bookmakers here "https://www.betinireland.ie/">betting sites

✔️ Dublin vs Mayo - Betting Tips

Dublin and Mayo is a tough one to call, but here are some tips if you are unsure how the game will transpire or need ideas on how to use your free bets:

Tip 1: Dublin to Win

Dublin come into the game off heavy victories over both Roscommon and Cavan scoring 7 goals across those 2 games. They scored 2-19 versus Roscommon and 5-17 versus Roscommon, a massive 7-36 across the All Ireland group phase so far. They also scored 1-19 versus Louth, 3-22 versus Offaly and 3-19 versus Meath. In the championship so far across the 5 games Dublin have scored 14-96, which is an average of 2.8-19.2, which can be rounded to an average of 3-19 a game. This sort of scoring is near impossible for any team to deal with so Mayo will find it very difficult to keep up with Mayo. Across Mayo’s 5 games they scored 2-21 versus New York, 1-15 versus Roscommon, 0-15 versus Galway, 0-20 versus Cavan and 2-14 versus Roscommon. This is a total of 5-85 which is an average of 1-17 per game. This is not enough to deal with the quality of Dublin who would have to severely lower their output in order to lose to Mayo. Mayo will need a high quality performance and will need forwards Ryan O’Donoghue, Cillian O’Connor and Aidan O’Shea to be in scintillating form to live with Dublin’s firepower of Paul Mannion, Ciaran Kilkenny, Con O’Callaghan and many others. Dublin will be a hard team to beat for anyone for the rest of the season and are the clear favourites for the All Ireland so expect them to lay down a marker with All Ireland rivals Mayo. Boylesports are giving odds of 1.25 for a Dublin victory this time out.

Tip 2: Dublin Handicap -4

Dublin are the favourites for this one due to their high scoring performances in the championship to this point, scoring 14-96 in just 5 championship games. Their average margin of victory across these 5 games is 14 points with the highest victory being a 20 point victory over Offaly and the lowest a 4 point victory over Louth in what was a disappointing performance by Dublin. Both these teams have played the same teams in the group to this point, Cavan and Roscommon, but both sides have had very different margins of victory. Dublin dispatched Roscommon by 12 points with 2 goals in the final 10 minutes of the game whereas Mayo beat Roscommon by 2 points, holding on at the end after two stoppage time points by Roscommon left Mayo a nervy finish. Both sides were comfortable against Cavan Mayo winning by 9 points on a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-20. Dublin were even more rampant in their victory over Cavan winning by 19 points on a scoreline of 5-17 to 0-13. These results are a guide to the quality of both teams with Dublin capable of destroying a team, with Mayo games being a lot closer. It will be hard for Dublin to be as comfortable against Mayo but they should have too much quality and win with points to spare and a handicap of -4 seems about right and is available on BoyleSports with a price of 1.91.

Tip 3: First Team to score - Dublin

This tip is an intriguing one because predicting who will score the first point is nearly an impossible task. There are many factors that can sway who scores the first point in a game, the referee may give a scoreable free to either team, the wind may be strong in favour of a certain team, and the throw up is 50/50 and can be one by either team. Dublin have been proficient in scoring the first point in the championship so far. They have scored the first point in 3 of their 5 championship games including scoring the first 4 points against Offaly and the first 3 points against Roscommon. They are in great form and are starting games strongly. They have the best midfielder in the country in Brian Fenton who would be tipped to win the throw up as he is always expected to which can set Dublin on their way to getting the first point of the game, and if the other games have shown us this could lead to multiple points in a row without a response by Mayo. Mayo conceded the first point against Roscommon last time out but this was the first time they have conceded the first score in the championship so far. The first score could go either way in this one but the Brian Fenton factor for Dublin should help them score the first point. This is priced at 1.91 on Unibet.
