🏐 Galway and Kerry All-Ireland SFC Recent Performances

When you are thinking about betting on a certain team to win a match, no matter the sport that you are betting on, it is a really wise move for you to have a look at how both sides have been playing as of late. Why is this something that we recommend? Well, if a side that is out of form is playing a side that is playing at the top of their game, then it should be obvious, even to novice bettors, that you should not place money on the team that is not in form. Yes, we are fully aware that there is no guarantee that the out of form team will lose the match, but form is certainly something that needs to be looked at when betting on Gaelic football matches.

Now, since both Galway and Kerry have made it to the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship final, it is clear that neither side is out of form. However, having said this, one of the teams might be in better form than their rival, and you can see what kind of form they are in by looking at how they have played in order to reach the final. If a side has made it to the final by brushing aside their adversaries while their opponents have fluked their way there, then the former is the side that you should bet on. Therefore, with this in mind, we will now look at how both Galway and Kerry made it to the All-Ireland SFC final.

Galway play their Gaelic football in the Connacht Senior Football Championship, and they went on to win the 2022 edition of this competition by beating Roscommon by five points in the final. Their first match of the competition was against their fierce rivals Mayo, and they won a really close match by a point to move on to the Semi-Final. In the Semis, they took on Leitrim, and this was not much of a contest as they won the match by 23 points to book a spot in the final.

Galway are the second most successful team in the Connacht Senior Football Championship, having won it 47 times, while Mayo have won it 48 times. Since the turn of the century, they have won this division eight times, which is bettered only by Mayo, who have won it nine times. When it comes to the All-Ireland Championship, Galway have won the title on eight occasions, but the last time that they lifted the title was in 1998.

Since they won the 2022 Connacht SFC, they got a bye into the Quarter-Finals of the All-Ireland SFC, where they beat Armagh on penalties. In the Semi-Final, they took on Derry and this was another close game, with Galway coming out on top by just five points. So, as can be seen from the above, they have been in some good form as of late, and will pose a number of questions for Kerry.

Kerry play in the Munster Senior Football Championship, and they won the 2022 edition of the tournament by beating Limerick by 23 points in the final. Since they were the finalists in the 2021 edition, they received a bye into the Semi-Final of the 2022 version, where they took on Cork and won the match by 12 points.

When it comes to success in the Munster SFC, Kerry are streets ahead of their rivals with 83 wins to their name, with 17 championship wins under their belt since the turn of the century. With regard to the All-Ireland SFC, they have lifted the title 35 times, with their most recent success coming back in 2014.

Since they were the champions in the 2022 Munster SFC, they received a bye into the Quarter-Finals of the All-Ireland SFC, where they took on Mayo and won by eight points. In the Semi-Final, they had to play against Dublin, and it was a close match that Kerry won by a point to book themselves a spot in the final against Galway. So, as you can see from the above results, Kerry have also been in pretty good form with Dublin being the only team that has really given them any trouble.

Galway versus Kerry used to be one of the biggest rivalries in the sport during the 1960s, and it is still a big rivalry since these two sides are two of the sport's most successful teams. In their history, they have played each other on 21 occasions, and Kerry have come out on top 12 times. From the last five matches that they have played, Kerry have won four, while Galway have won once, although that win came in the last match that they played against each other.

💯 Galway vs Kerry Odds

Sometimes it is not that easy to find competitive odds for huge Gaelic football games since many of the best sports betting sites will only offer outright markets since Gaelic football is not a huge sport outside of the Emerald Isle. However, we never like to let any of our readers down, which is why we have put in a lot of effort to try and find some top bookies that you can count on when it comes to odds for Gaelic football. In this table below, you can find the different odds that the best bookies have on offer for this final between Galway and Kerry.


So, as can be seen from the table above, all of the best bookmakers for betting on Gaelic Football have Kerry as their odds-on favourites to win the title. If we are being completely honest though, and honesty is something that we always aim for, we think that the odds for Galway should be higher since we believe that the two teams are pretty evenly matched.

In the other predictions that we have made for Gaelic football, we have given you outright odds as well. For those of you who are new to sports betting, an outright bet is one where you put your money on the team that you think will lift the trophy. Now, obviously, since this match is the final, there is no need for us to give you a dedicated section of outright odds since the odds that we have just given you are the odds for either team to win the trophy.

If this is something that happens to you, we do apologise for the inconvenience, but we are sure that the new bonus, whatever it is, will be as good.

🏆 Our Galway v Kerry Match Prediction

So, what team do we think will win the final and hold aloft the 2022 All-Ireland SFC trophy? Well, we feel that, despite the odds on offer at the top bookies, both teams will be confident of winning, and it will be a closer game than many are expecting. However, we do agree with the bookies that Kerry will win the match because they have a slightly better squad and have been in fine form.
