A Full Weekend
We come into this weekend with the return of The Rugby Championship.
All Northern Hemisphere leagues are in full force and it makes for a weekend of variety.
It’s not quite at the point where you know the exact form and trajectory of each team but we are almost there and slowly we are gathering a picture of form in the different leagues, total points in games and player/coach influence.
Best Bet: Munster Plus
Best Bet: Munster +6.5 (9/10)
Munster’s performance against the Cheetahs last weekend was very imposing. They are very well coached and even though they are away I genuinely think they can even win this game. Glasgow on the other hand won but weren’t as convincing.
With players like Hanrahan, Carbery and Sweetnam they will be lethal going forward and Munsters defense has never been an issue. Last week is case and point if the history books aren’t good enough.
A Munster Plus is my call, at plus 6.5 it certainly gets my attention.
Value Bet: Gloucester on the board
Value Bet: Gloucester Outright vs Bath 15/10
This new Gloucester side with Johan Ackerman’s influence looks to be a quality outfit. He’s a recruited extremely well and he’s already made his mark from a technical aspect. They’ll be away at the Recreation Ground so not an easy task but if I look at the marginal spread of +3.5 it shows me the bookies think they can also win. Add to that, Bath are coming off a loss to Bristol and Gloucester beat a star studded Northampton Saints.
