29-04-2022 Daily Predictions United Rugby Championship Bulls vs Glasgow Warriors

Bulls vs Glasgow

This will be the first ever meeting between these sides and it couldn’t be in a more important match. Both teams are fighting for playoff positions with Glasgow just two points ahead of the Bulls. The home team knows that a win in this match will see them leapfrog Glasgow on the table. The Bulls will want to start this match much better than they did in their last match against Benetton while Glasgow had a good start in their last match scoring a try early in the game but failed to score again in the match.

TIP: The Bulls will need to be better at the breakdown as they turned over lots of ball in the last match that prevented them from gaining any momentum in the match. Glasgow on the other hand will look to their attack to show more potency as they failed to score a single point in the last 60 minutes of the match. They have brought in experienced Scottish international flyhalf Duncan Weir to control the game but he needs his kicking to be accurate on the Highveld. The bookies have the Bulls as favourites and I also tip them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.22, Playabets 1.24 and Sunbet 1.20.

HEAD TO HEAD STATS

Bulls vs Glasgow

  • This is the first meeting between the sides.

Latest results for both teams

The Bulls beat Benetton 46-29 in their last match while Glasgow lost 32-7 against the Stormers.

PREDICTION

The Bulls will need to follow the blueprint laid down by the Stormers in their match against Glasgow. The Scottish team like to play open running rugby but they need quick ruck ball to achieve this. The Bulls will use their outstanding loose trio to disrupt the breakdown and prevent Weir from igniting the backline. The battle between the veteran number tens, Morne Steyn and Weir looks like the highlight of this contest. The player that the Bulls will look for guidance will be Captain Marcell Coetzee as he has played the Scottish team many times before during his time with Ulster. I am predicting a Bulls win by more than ten points

Predictions and Odds in details

The Bulls tried to be too expansive in their last match and made numerous errors. They then reverted to their power game and this carried them to the victory. Glasgow must take the ball in a hand approach and move the big Bulls pack around if they are to be successful. The team that dominates the forward battle will ultimately win this match. There are poor odds on the Bulls win therefore we suggest the home team on the handicap for better returns. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-9.5) 1.91, Sunbet (-9.5) 1.89 and Playabets (-9.5) 1.81
