Racing 92 vs Toulouse
It’s the clash of the titans as Racing entertain Toulouse in this crucial Top 14 match. The home side have been in excellent form in the league and currently top the table with 40 points. The defending champions have not had the greatest of seasons as they are currently in fourth spot with 32 points. Racing have a 100% home record with six wins from six and have been miserly in defence on their home patch. They have conceded under 100 points across the six home games at a scarcely believable 16 points per game.
TIP: Both sides have international class players scattered throughout their lineup but the highlight of the match will be Anton Dupont up against Nolann Le Garrec. The latter is in prime position to replace the great Dupont in the Six Nations after the French Captain decided to pull out of the competition to focus on playing in the Olympics for the National Sevens team. Racing has double World Cup winning captain Siya Kolisi to assist with the leadership within the team. The bookies have Racing 92 as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.48, Gbets 1.47 and Hollywoodbets 1.48

Latest results for both teams
Racing beat Cardiff 48-26 in their last match while Bath was beaten 31-19 by Toulouse in their last match.
Racing have looked a different team in the domestic competition compared to the Champions Cup where they just scraped into the round of 16. This match will be a dress rehearsal to their round of 16 encounter as they will face Toulouse but that match will be on the road. The visitors have had a dismal away record with just one win in their six matches. This will be an ideal time to improve that record as they continue to fight for a playoff place. Racing have delighted with their running rugby and if they are allowed to dominate then Toulouse could be in for a long night. I am 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.
