Cardiff vs Bulls
Cardiff play host to the Bulls in this URC fixture. The home team have lost two of their opening three matches and will want to bounce back from their last defeat when they went down to the Scarlets. The Bulls have blown hot and cold this season with two huge victories and a loss against Ulster. They have been playing fantastic expansive rugby when they are able to hold onto the ball. The loss to Ulster was due to their poor handling and they will be hoping for dry weather as they struggle in the wet.
TIP: Cardiff will hope that Welsh winger Josh Adams is available for this match as it will help them in attack. They have been very poor going forward and will be looking to flyhalf Tinus de Beer to link up their potent backline that includes the likes of Rey Lee-Lo and flyer Theo Cabango. The Bulls will again look to their powerful pack to lay the platform for their backline to fire. Flyhalf Johan Goosen has been outstanding with the boot and his running game has been superb. The bookies have the Bulls as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.30, Gbets 1.30 and Hollywoodbets 1.30

Latest results for both teams
Cardiff lost 31-25 to the Scarlets in the last match while the Bulls beat Zebre 54-29 last time out.
Cardiff will need to be smart in this match and adopt a ball in hand approach that will move the big Bulls pack around the field. The visitors on the other hand will want a slow forwards dominated game which has plenty of set pieces. The home team have looked their best in recent seasons when they have thrown caution to the wind and ran the ball from all over the field. The Bulls weakness has been their scrum all of last season but the signing of Wilco Louw and Akker van der Merwe has turned their scrum into of the more powerful front rows in the competition. We are predicting a Bulls win by more than 10 points.
