✔️ Galway and Cork Tips and Preview

When you are considering placing a wager on a team to win a match, no matter what the sport is that you are betting on, then it is a wise move to have a look at how the two sides have been playing lately. Obviously, if a side is out of form and playing against a team that is very much in form, then it would be a wise move not to bet on the former. There is no guarantee that they will lose the match, but form is a vital aspect to always remember when you are betting on Gaelic Hurling or any other sport that you like. Thus, with what we just said firmly in mind, we shall now look at how Galway and Kildare have been playing as of late.

Galway compete in the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship and they finished at the top of the 2022 edition of this event with four wins and a draw from the five matches that they played. They drew with Wexford in the first round, demolished Westmeath in the second by 25 points, beat Kilkenny by a solitary point in their third match, trounced Laois in the fourth round by 22 points, and rounded things off with a six-point win over Dublin in the fifth round.

They took on Kilkenny, who finished second in the group stage, in the 2022 Leinster Final and lost by five points, meaning that they had to settle for a place in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Finals. It is no shame losing to Kilkenny as they have been the dominant team in the Leinster SHC for some time now. They have 74 titles to their name and have won the last three Championships in a row. Galway, to give you some perspective, have won the title just three times, with two of these wins coming in 2017 and 2018.

Cork competes in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship, and they finished third in the Munster table, meaning that they had to settle for a spot in the Preliminary Quarter-Finals. From the four games that they played, they won two and lost two to finish with four points.

They lost their first match to Limerick by 11 points, lost their second match against Clare by two points, then beat Waterford by six points and disposed of Tipperary by 12 points. In the Preliminary Quarter-Finals, they took on Antrim, who won the 2022 Joe McDonagh Cup by beating Kerry in the final by a point. Many thought that the Preliminary Quarter-Final would be a close encounter, but Cork won it quite comfortably in the end, beating them by 11 points.

Historically, Cork are the most successful team in the Munster SHC with 54 titles to their name, but Limerick have been the dominant force as of late, winning the 2020, 2021, and 2022 editions of the event.

Since Galway and Cork play in different provinces, this is not a regular fixture, but when they do meet, there is usually plenty of points scored. The last time that these two teams met was on the 26th of July 2015, and Galway came out on top that day with a 12-point win. Out of the last 10 encounters between the sides, going back to 1985, Galway have won seven times to Cork's three.

💯 Galway vs Cork Odds

Sometimes it is not easy to find competitive odds for Gaelic Hurling since many of the best sports betting sites only offer outright markets for the sport since it is a sport that is not hugely popular outside of Ireland. However, we have found some great sportsbooks that you can always count on when it comes to hurling matches, and below we have given you the odds that they are offering for the Galway versus Cork Quarter-Final.


As can be seen from the above table, Cork are the favourites to win this match, so it seems that the sports betting sites are not taking recent history into account here. This might be due to the fact that Cork seem to turn it on whenever they are playing in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship - they have managed to win it 30 times, with only Kilkenny having won it more. Galway, on the other hand have won it just five times, although their most recent win was in 2017, while Cork's was in 2005.

📊 Odds of Galway and Cork Winning the Title

Above we gave you the odds that the best sports betting sites have on offer for Galway and Cork to win their match, but you might want to make an outright wager instead. If you are new to the world of sports betting, then an outside wager is one where you put your money on a team that you think will go on and lift the trophy, which is the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship trophy in this case.

Below you will find another table, but the odds in this table are the odds that the best bookmakers are offering for Cork and Galway to go on and lift the All-Ireland SHC trophy.


As you can see from the above table, the top sports betting sites give Cork more of a chance of winning the title than Galway.

🎁 Free Bet Offers for Betting on Galway v Cork

If you are new to betting on Gaelic Hurling and you do not yet have an account with a bookmaker, then you will almost certainly want to have a look at the table below. In this table, we have provided you with some top free bet bonus offers that the best sportsbooks currently have on offer to those who open a new account with them. These free bets can be used on the Galway v Cork match, or on any other hurling game that you feel like betting on. Obviously, if you like, you can use the bonus on another sport.

Before you jump in and claim any type of bonus when betting, you should take some time to read the T&Cs that apply. You will not encounter any type of bonus in the sports betting world that does not come with T&Cs attached to it because online bookies are not going to give out free money - yes, that would be great for us, but it would put them out of business in no time at all. If you do not read the terms and conditions, then you could make an error which sees you forfeit the bonus.

Also, when you are betting on sporting events, you have to always remember to gamble responsibly. To make sure that this is the case, we suggest that you set a budget with an amount that you feel you can afford to potentially lose, and stick to it. When/if you lose your budgeted money, stop making bets straight away, and go and occupy yourself with something else.

One final thing that we want to say here is that free bets change all the time because sports betting sites are always looking for new ways to ensure that things stay fresh and nice on their site. Thus, there is a chance that the bonus that you have just read about in the table above are not on offer anymore when/if you sign up with them. If this happens to you, then we apologise for the inconvenience, but we are pretty certain that the new bonuses on offer will be as good, or even better.

🏆 Our Galway v Cork Match Prediction

So, which team do we think will win this All-Ireland Senior Hurling Quarter-Final game between Galway and Cork? Well, although Galway performed better in their province competition than Cork did, and although Galway have a better head-to-head record against Cork when they meet, we think that Cork will come out on top here and book themselves a Semi-Final spot against Limerick.

Our match prediction: Cork to win.
