Pro 14 Round 3
Edinburgh -8.5 v Connacht
I have to say first up this game has not got my interest. I have called or suggested that Edinburgh were good things on the plus the last two times out. This week however is probably a step to far. I will not be touching this game. For what it’s worth a suggestion would be to take Connacht on the plus.
Munster -23.5 v Ospreys
This handicap moved tremendously, in fact I have not seen a move like this in quite some time. Honestly I will also not be betting on this game. If forced to punt I would go with the Plus as often the bookies knee-jerk reaction is overdone.
Leinster -29.5 v Dragons
Plus for me here, although just like above, personally I will not get involved. This is merely a suggestion, it just seems too high.
Scarlets -19.5 v Benetton
Benetton have started well, so I will have a go here. Nineteen and a half also seems too much, but it does have my attention.
Call: Benetton +19.5 at 0.5 units
Cheetahs +9.5 v Glasgow
This game is correctly priced. Last year I said the Cheetahs would not lose a home game. Now I do know that this year the Cheetahs have been very poor. Honestly 2.65/1 about the home team gets my interest, however just for 0.5 units
Zebre +6.5 v Cardiff
I am happy with Zebre’s home form, in fact I will ignore the handicap here and go about the Zebre winning on the board.
Call: Zebre on the board at 7/4 (1.75/1) for 1 unit
Kings +13.5 v Ulster
I have to start by saying, thank you to whomever is watching, for giving us Sunday rugby!! I love Sunday rugby just as I love Friday night Currie Cup.
This game is my #BestBetoftheWeekendPro14 by a country mile. Kings +13.5 at 0.94 is simply golden, they have played exceptional rugby of late. This Sunday I expect nothing less, in fact 9/2 about the win is also big, and is also a runner!!
Don’t be surprised if more than 500 people attend this game. I like the Kings here, Ulster have struggled this season and they will struggle again. This year the Kings will win a few at home starting with this weekend.
Call: Kings +13.5 at 9/10 for 2 units and an additional unit on the 9/2 Kings win on the board (Max bet 3 units Pro 14)
Unfortunately I did not do a video on this round, I found myself suffering with a minor cold and felt i would not be at my best, apologies!!
