Both those quarter finals have the potential to be tight enough affairs.

Limerick and Waterford both only had 1 game in the league [and Waterford barely managed that] so recent form is a bit questionable. Limerick's early season form of 6 wins in 6 seems a long time ago now.

Tipp's form in Division 3 looked a bit up-and-down compared to Clare's more solid form in Division 2, even if Clare only avoided relegation on head-to-head.

Cork will probably need a few goals to have any chance against Kerry - even though they got 3 last year they ended up losing.
Donegal 9a big part of this was surely Donegal's challenge match approach to the game) and Monaghan didn't see to create much in the way of goal chances against Kerry.
I wouldn't be surprised if Cork do a bit better at this given the amount of goals they have scored in Division 3 and I'd also have doubts about the Kerry defence if run at.
A season in Division 3 is woeful preparation for taking on Kerry.
Some risk if they don't get goals and Kerry do, I could see the possibility of an ugly enough scoreline.
Nothing more the Kerry lads would enjoy that running up the score against a Cork side if they get the chance.

Very hard to look beyond Kerry; if Cork do pull off an upset against them, they will be short odds to win Munster, although at this stage if it came down to a Cork v Clare final I have half an notion that Clare might give them a fright in the final. Close to impossible to see Cork going any further than winning Munster - whoever comes out of Connacht would surely have too much for them in an All-Ireland semi-final.

If there were Qualifiers Cork might have a chance as Kerry would be more focused on the closing stages.
But in a winner takes all game Kerry will be totally focused and very hard to see them slipping up.
Still Connacht Champions

I would say it's close to impossible to see Cork getting to a Munster Final, never mind winning Munster. If they actually won Munster then they would only be very marginal underdogs in an All-Ireland semi. But they won't, surely.

Kerry are 1/5 to beat cork . Unfortunately I am an unsuccessful gambler but if even 70%  of every 1/5 shot I ever did won I’d be a successful one . Point is Kerry are far from nailed on but most likely will .
Walk-in down mchale rd , sun out, summers day , game day . That’s all .

Lol yeah true but not true .

Example man united at 1/5 could let you down in an accumulator worth thousands , Celtic at 1/5 could also let you down for a fortune the next time and so forth , if seven out of every ten accumulators won for me where teams that were odds on it would of been boom boom boom . Be very interesting to see real stats for the likes .

But anyway Cork to win Munster .

Studies have been done in this area. Short story - accumulators (while they can be fun) are a sure way to lose money over the long term. If you back at 1/5 then you need to win at least 9 times out of 10 to be in profit. Obviously an accumulator raises the odds, and thus the frequency in which one needs to win. But apparently the risk of one or more loser in the accumulator rises quicker than the reward for a win - thus favouring the bookie over the long run.

Cork will start well and may well be in the game after 50 mins. But Kerry will win by 5-8 points and beat Clare by a bit more in the final.
