Glasgow vs Ulster
High flying Glasgow Warriors welcome Ulster to the Scotstoun Stadium for this URC match. The home team will be hoping that the Six Nations break does not disrupt their momentum as they are on a five game winning run in the competition and are nine games unbeaten across all competitions. Ulster are on a two match winning run after losing three matches on the trot prior to this. They will be tested in this match as they have struggled on the road, winning just one of their last five away matches. The home team have only failed to beat Ulster in their last three meetings.
TIP: Both teams have been hit by national team call ups although the Warriors still have plenty of firepower which includes Jack Dempsey even though he made an appearance for Scotland as a replacement. There will be a few Ulster players who will have a point to prove to the national selectors none more so than James Hume and Jacob Stockdale. They will need barn storming performances if they are to force their way into the Irish team. The bookies have Glasgow as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.65, Gbets 1.63 and Hollywoodbets 1.65

Latest results for both teams
Glasgow beat the Dragons 42-28 in their last match while Ulster beat the Stormers 35-5 in their last match.
Glasgow’s season has changed on its head in recent months due to their fearless brand of rugby where they are willing to run from almost anywhere on the field. They have made life very difficult for opposition teams especially on their home patch. Ulster will need to bring the form they showed in the last match when they dismantled the URC champions Stormers 35-5. The visitors will need to be accurate with their kicking game as the home team have been deadly on attack with winger Sebastian Cancelliere leading the way with most defenders beaten in the competition. We are predicting a home win by 10 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.
