Westmeath v Kerry, Sunday, 3pm, Cusack Park
Westmeath and Kerry clash in their second games of the round robin group stage in the Leinster Hurling Championship on Sunday afternoon. The home side will be looking for a win after last weekend’s defeat to Laois in Portlaoise and loss here to the Kingdom will almost certainly rule them out of a quarter final spot. Kerry are in the same boat having lost out to Meath in their opening game, so a loss here could also upset their chances of a quarter final berth.
Westmeath will look to Niall Mitchell, Robbie Greville and Alan Devine who all performed well against Meath, while Kerry will look for Shane Nolan, Mikey Boyle and Jack Goulding. In terms of odds, Westmeath are priced at 4/7 and Kerry are priced at 13/8. I think Westmeath with home advantage will get over the line here.
Verdict: Westmeath by 2 points
