SHARKS v CONNACHT – Click here to bet
The Sharks will be happy to be back home after 4 successive defeats to start their URC campaign and they currently sit bottom of the table. Last week they went down 12-10 at Zebre.
Connacht have made a strong start with 3 wins in their opening 4 games and last week put up a brave fight before going down 25-22 at Edinburgh.
Handicap: Sharks -7.5
There will be plenty of pressure on the Sharks and it is hard to back them with any confidence, but I think at home they might just have too much for this Connacht team.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Sharks -7.5 at 19/20
MUNSTER v STORMERS – Click here to bet
Munster are currently 7th on the log with 2 wins, a draw and a loss in their opening 4 games. They looked like beating Ulster away last week, but went down 21-14 and have blown a bit hot and cold this season.
Stormers are currently 9th on the log with 2 wins and 2 losses. They were disappointing last week playing Benetton away and going down 20-17 and they also went down the previous week 20-9 to the Glasgow Warriors.
Handicap: Munster -10.5
Munster are a different beast at home and I think they are going to pull clear of the Stormers in the second-half.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Munster -10.5 at 19/20

DRAGONS v OSPREYS – Click here to bet
The Dragons are currently 15th on the log and they face the Ospreys who sit 10th. The Dragons are still without a win this season and they lost 33-10 at home to Leinster last week.
The Ospreys have a 50% win/loss record but were disappointing last week going down 23-31 to the Glasgow Warriors at home.
Handicap: Dragons +3.5
This is likely to be a tight and fairly low scoring affair, but I think the Ospreys can get the win and beat the handicap in the process.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Ospreys -3.5 at 10/11
GLASGOW v BENETTON – Click here to bet
Glasgow are currently 3rd on the log with just 1 defeat in their opening 4 matches. They got a good away win last week at the Ospreys winning 31-23 and the week before that they beat the Stormers 20-9 at home. They also beat Leinster at home in Week 1 of the URC.
Benetton are 6th on the log with 3 wins and a draw in their opening 4 matches so they are the only undefeated side left in the URC. Last week they were too strong for the Stormers, winning 20-17 at home and in their only away game of the season they edged Cardiff 23-22 in Week 1.
Handicap: Glasgow -10.5
Benetton have had some excellent results this season, but I think they are going to find Glasgow far too strong. This is one of my better bets of the weekend.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Glasgow -10.5 at 10/11
LEINSTER v SCARLETS – Click here to bet
Leinster recovered from that opening loss to Glasgow to win their remaining 3 matches. They beat the Dragons 33-10 on the road in a scrappy affair last week and at home this season they have beaten Edinburgh by 9 and the Sharks by 21 points.
The Scarlets are sitting 14th on the log with just 1 win so far this season. They lost both games in South Africa by big margins and then edged Cardiff 31-25 in a derby on their return. Last week they were beaten 23-24 by the Lions at home.
Handicap: Leinster -27.5
Leinster have proven a bit dangerous to follow in these high handicap games, but I can’t see past a comfortable home win here.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Leinster -27.5 at 10/11
