London v Down, 2pm, Saturday
Both of these sides come into the game in a different place after last weekend’s games. London played Roscommon and were convincing 4-24 to 1-10 winners at Dr Hyde Park, while Down suffered defeat to Ulster rivals Antrim on a score line of 3-15 to 0-11 in Cushendall.
London will look to Kevin O’Loughlin for another good game after he scored 1-07 in that win over the Rossies, while they will also look to Martin Duggan and Stephen Lawless to continue their fine form into this game. Down will look Scott Nicholson who was their best player in the loss to Antrim, while they will want Eoghan Sands and Derek McManus to find form.
London are firm favourites for the game at 1/3, with the Mourne men priced at 9/4 to upset the odds. Going by last weekend I think London will win this with a couple of points to spare.
Verdict: London by 5
