Bookies give Westmeath the same chance of beating Dublin as Gibraltar against Germany
Now that's an underdog
Anyone looking to make a few quid on Dublin winning the Leinster title may as well look elsewhere.
Bookmakers Paddy Power have made the boys in blue 1/500 favourites to claim the Delaney Cup when they face fairytale finalists Westmeath in a fortnight's time.
To put that into context, it's the same odds given for a Germany victory over football minnows Gibraltar in their recent Euro 2016 qualifier.
Dublin are 1/500 to beat Westmeath in the Leinster final, the same odds that Germany were to beat Gibraltar in the Euro qualifiers #GAA

Optimists from the Lake County, buoyed by their first ever Championship win over neighbours Meath, might be tempted by the 25/1 about their prospects of what would be one of the biggest upsets in GAA history.
First, they will have to make sure they overcome a 16-point spread, which is by means an easy task given Dublin's 27 and 19-point wins over Longford and Kildare thus far.
