🏐 Kilkenny and Limerick Recent Hurling Matches Performances

When you are considering placing a wager on a team to win a game, no matter what the sport happens to be, it is a wise move for you to take a good look at how the two sides have been getting on. Why is this the case? Well, obviously, if a team that is considerably out of form is playing a team that is in form, then it should be quite obvious, even to those novice gamblers, that you should not bet your money on the team that is out of form. Yes, we are aware that there is absolutely no guarantee that the team which is out of form will go on and lose the game, but form is something that you should think about when placing bets on sports such as hurling.

Now, since both of these teams have made it to the final of the All-Ireland SHC, it stands to reason that neither of these teams are out of form. However, one of them might be in better form than the other, and you can tell this by looking at their performances leading up to the final. If a team has been brushing aside their opponents while the other has reached the final by the skin of their teeth, then the former is the one that it would be wise to place a bet on. Thus, with what we have just said firmly in our mind, we are now going to take a look at how Kilkenny and Limerick made it to the final.

Kilkenny play their hurling in the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship, and they came second in the 2022 Leinster SHC to book themselves a final spot against Galway, who they beat by five points to earn their 74th title. They have won this competition for three consecutive years now, and they have won all by five editions of this competition since the turn of the century.

So, let us see how the performed in the Round Robin section of the 2022 Leinster SHC. Well, their first match of the tournament was against Westmeath, and they could not have got off to a much better start since they won the match by 16 points. Their second game of the tournament was against Laois, and they did even better than their first match, winning by no fewer than 23 points. In their third match, they played Galway and lost by just one point, before they took on Dublin and beat them by 17 points. Their final game of the Round Robin was against Wexford, and they lost the match by four points.

Since they are the Champions of the 2022 Leinster SHC, they received a bye into the All-Ireland SHC Semi-Finals, where they took on Clare at Croke Park. Clare were the favourites for this match, but Kilkenny, as we predicted they would, put in a very solid showing and went on to win the match by 12 points.

So, as can bee seen from the above, when Kilkenny are playing at their best, there are not that many teams out there that can compete with them. They are one of those teams that are really hard to stop once they get on a roll. With regard to the All-Ireland SHC, they are the competition's most successful team, having lifted the title 36 times. Thus, with the form that they are currently in and their history in this competition, they will be quite confident that they can beat Limerick and lift the title.

Limerick, on the other hand, play their hurling in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship, and in the 2022 edition of the competition, they finished second in the Group Stage because Clare had a better points difference of just +1. Since they finished in second place, they took on Clare in the final and won with a very dramatic penalty shootout. This win means that Limerick have now lifted the Munster SHC for four consecutive years, and have picked up 23 titles to their name.

Their first match of the 2022 version of the Munster SHC was against Cork, and they won the game by 11 points. After this match, they took on Waterford, and won the game by just three points, before they beat Tipperary by just one point. Their final game in the Group Stage saw them take on Clare, and this match finished in a fascinating 24-24 draw.

Since they were the winners of the 2022 Munster SHC, they got a bye into the All-Ireland SHC Semi-Finals, where they took on Galway and won a fascinating encounter by four points to book themselves a final spot against Kilkenny.

As you can see from the information above, Limerick have yet to be beaten in the Munster SHC or All-Ireland SHC, but they did have some very close matches with Clare. With regard to the All-Ireland SHC, Limerick are actually the defending champions since they won the title in 2021 - they also managed to win it in 2018 and 2020, so they have been really dominant in past years. All in all, they have lifted this trophy ten times.

Kilkenny and Limerick have played each other 14 times in their history, and Kilkenny are leading the way with nine wins to Limerick's five. The last time that these two teams played against each other was on the 27th of July 2019 in the All-Ireland SHC at Croke Park where Kilkenny won a very tight match by a solitary point. We are expecting another close game this time around too.

💯 Kilkenny vs Limerick Odds

Sometimes it is not that simple to find competitive odds for big hurling matches since many top betting sites out there only offer outright markets since this sport is not that big outside of Ireland. However, we really do not like to let down our readers, which is the reason why we put in plenty of effort to find some top bookmakers that you can definitely count on with regard to hurling odds. In the following table, you can see the different odds that the top sports betting sites are offering for this game between Kilkenny and Limerick.


So, as you can see from this table, all of the top bookies for betting on hurling have put Limerick as the clear favourites to go on and win this game and lift the title. If we are being honest, which is something that we always want to be, we think that the odds for Kilkenny should be lower because we feel that these are two teams that are pretty evenly matched.

In our predictions for the other matches, we provided you with the outright odds too. For those of you who happen to be new to the world of sports betting, an outright bet is a bet on a team to go on and lift the title. Now, since this is the final, there really is no need for a dedicated section to this since the odds above are the same odds on offer for either team to go on and lift the title.

Before you jump in and claim a welcome offer or promotion that is available, you have to take the time to read the different T&Cs that apply. You will never encounter a bonus in the world of online gambling which does not have a variety of terms and conditions attached to it because betting sites will not be happy with giving out free money. If you do not take any time to read the different terms that are attached, then you might make an error which sees you lose your bonus money.

Also, when you are betting on sporting events, you should remember the importance of gambling responsibly. To make sure that this is the case, we suggest that you create some kind of budget that you can afford to lose should you end up going on one of those annoying losing streaks. If you do lose the money which you set aside for your betting session, then stop betting right away, and occupy your mind with something else that you enjoy doing.

One final thing that we want to say is that bonuses can be altered in a split second because sportsbooks are always on the lookout for new ways to ensure that their site stays enticing and attracts people to register.
