Division 3 sees Armagh head the outright betting at 2/1 with Tipperary next in the betting at 11/4 closely followed by Laois at 3/1.

Westmeath are the 11/10 favourites to win Division 4 as they kick off their league campaign with a home fixture against Carlow whilst Limerick, who travel to Wexford on Sunday, have seen their outright price to win the division cut into 7/2 from 13/2.
