Glasgow vs Bulls
Glasgow have made a strange start to their season, losing heavily in two matches while winning their other match in emphatic style. It is no coincidence that the only victory was at home and they will be looking for a great performance from their players if they are to upset last season’s runners-up the Bulls. The visitors have had a great start to the season winning their opening three games but narrowly won their only match against Scottish opposition. The Bulls will be playing their first away match so they will want to get their tour off to a winning start.
TIP: The Bulls have traditionally been very strong in the forwards and this current team is no different. The home team will need to adopt a ball in hand approach and try and run the heavy Bulls pack ragged. If the visitors are allowed to slow the game down and move from set piece to set piece then they will drain the Glasgow team with their power game. The bookies have the Bulls as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.72, Playabets 1.70 and Sunbet 1.70

Glasgow vs Bulls
- The Bulls beat Glasgow 29-17 in their only previous match.
Latest results for both teams
Glasgow lost 32-17 to Ospreys in their last match while the Bulls beat Connacht 28-14 in their last match.
Both teams have brilliant attacking players in their backline but the battle between the two fullbacks, Josh McKay and Kurt-Lee Arendse promises to be a highlight as both men are lightning fast with great side steps. The Bulls will use their driving maul to great effect as they always do therefore the home side will need their defence of the maul to be in top form. The selection of George Horne is a positive move as he was the catalyst of their win over Cardiff as he is always sniping around the rucks and mauls. We are expecting the Bulls to win by 3 points.

Sports crazy fan that follows all major sport but the game with the oval ball is my real passion. Was an age level rugby coach and a huge supporter of the Springboks and diehard Liverpool man. I’m an experienced punter and sports writer whose predictions/tips are sure to stir up the emotions. I love the occasional wager on the underdog.
