Laois' come from behind win in Armagh has seen them jump to favouritism to win promotion in the Allianz Football league.

Laois are now 11/4 according to Boyle Sports bookies after the Donie Kingston inspired comeback away to Armagh who had been favourites at the start of the league. Laois won by 2-11 to 16 points but were behind for much of the game.

After beating All-Ireland semifinalists Tipperary, Sligo are second favourites. The bookies are quoting Armagh as third favourites and only putting Louth at 4/1 despite their demolition of Laois in the first round.

Laois take on Tipperary in O'Moore Park in two week's time.
