23-12-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Glasgow Warriors vs Edinburgh

Glasgow Warriors vs Edinburgh

Glasgow and Edinburgh clash again in what is another installment of The 1872 Challenge Cup. The home team are currently 9th on the log with 20 points while the visitors are 6th with 23 points. Glasgow can overtake their bitter rivals with a victory in this match but they will need to deny Edinburgh a losing bonus point. The hosts have struggled on their travels but have been excellent at home and remain unbeaten at Scotstoun after three games. The visitors will miss Darcy Graham and Blair Kinghorn for this match as they are both out injured.

TIP: Glasgow have a near full strength team for this match and will be counting on their supporters to come out in numbers for this match. Edinburgh will be looking to continue their ball in hand approach but have struggled in recent matches with their poor handling. They will be hoping the return of flyer Duhan van der Merwe will assist them in getting front foot ball. The bookies have Glasgow as favourites but I’m tipping Edinburgh for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 2.60 Playabets 2.55 and Sunbet 2.65

PREDICTION

Glasgow have looked like a different side when they have played at home and will be hoping to continue that form against their oldest rivals. Edinburgh have chosen to play high tempo, high risk rugby but when it comes off, they are almost unstoppable. Glasgow will look to pressure them into mistakes with a high defensive line as this will make it very difficult for the visitors to attack from deep. The scrums look very evenly matches as both teams have internationals in their front row. Edinburgh have more game breakers like Emiliano Boffelli and Duhan van der Merwe therefore I am predicting the visitors to win by 8 points.
