Munster vs Edinburgh
Munster will be disappointed after they narrowly lost their last match to the Glasgow Warriors and only a late missed conversion denied them a share of the spoils. Edinburgh surprisingly fielded a below strength team against Leinster and were duly punished 26-7 by the champions. The home team is fifth on the log with 30 points while the visitors are in fourth place with 34 points. The hosts do have a game in hand over their opponents. A victory for Munster could see them leapfrog the Scottish side provided they deny them a bonus point.
TIP: Munster will be looking to their pack of forwards to put in better display than they did last week and the whole team needs to be better disciplined. They will need their experienced players to step up in order for them to bounce back with a victory. Edinburgh have selected a team that is filled with international quality especially in the backs. The bookies have Munster as favourites and I also tip them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.33, Playabets 1.26 and Sunbet 1.22
HEAD TO HEAD STATS
Munster vs Edinburgh

- Munster have only lost once in their last six home matches against Edinburgh.
- The last time Edinburgh beat Munster at home was in 2019.
Latest results for both teams
Munster lost their last match 13-11 to Glasgow while Edinburgh were beaten 26-7 by Leinster in their last match.
Munster will look to dominate the Edinburgh pack as the visitors have some new faces in the forwards. If Edinburgh can get good ball for their backs then they could run riot. The have an international backline with players like Emiliano Boffelli and Blair Kinghorn. Boffelli showed his class and pace against Leinster when he scored a great solo try. Munster will be hoping to get their driving maul working as they struggled with the maul against Glasgow. I am tipping the Munster to win by by more than 10 points.

- Predictions and Odds in details
This match will come down to the defence of Munster against the attack of Edinburgh. Munster have shown all season that they are a fantastic defensive side especially when they play at home. Scottish flyhalf Blair Kinghorn will have an important role to play and will need to be accurate with the boot otherwise the likes of Zebo will counter attack at will. There are poor odds on the Munster outright win therefore we suggest the home side on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-8.5) 1.85, Sunbet (-8.5) 1.90 and Playabets (-8.5) 1.82
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.
