Week 3 Preview
A flying first 2 weeks has left us 29.56 Points in profit and those betting £10 a point a cool £295.60 better off, we look to make it 3 from 3 on domestic action this week and keep those profits rolling in before we encounter a fortnight of European Cup action.
Preview Section: The combination of caution and simplicity has paid rich dividends for us so far and so I see no reason to deviate from that strategy again this week. In doing so I will back a heavy multi of favoured teams to achieve seemingly obvious victories and then combine that with a few value plays that provide the opportunity for even greater profits.
Sale vs Harlequins: As noted previously Sale are a very strong team at home so they should have no problem seeing off Harlequins at the AJ Bell Stadium, so I will make Sale and Exeter to win their matches as the base of this week’s multiple bets. Harlequins are capable of an impressive 40 minute burst so as we did last week with Bristol vs Wasps I will cover off a potential surprise result with a point on either side to lead at half time and the other to win at full time.

Leicester vs Bristol: With the return of their international stars Leicester’s form has taken a small uptick and I expect them to register their second win of the season here. A much better side at home than on their travels they will have been buoyed by the 30 all draw they got at Harlequins last week, where their scrum was especially strong late. Meanwhile Bristol have had a slight dip in form getting hammered by Saracens 2 weeks ago and losing at home to Wasps last week when heavily favoured. I will be adding Leicester to a treble and the overall 5 fold (listed below)
Gloucester vs Bath: In my opinion Gloucester are a far superior side to Bath and under normal circumstances would win this game comfortably. However this being a local derby makes the game potentially closer than it should be on paper. Because of this I will add Gloucester to one treble and the 5 fold (listed below) and have a point on each side leading at half time with the other winning at full time.

London Irish vs Exeter: Exeter should crush London Irish here if recent form is anything to go on. Exeter are at the top of the table finally, a position I expect them to occupy at the end of season whilst London Irish’s form has taken a significant downward turn. Two weeks ago Bath rocked up here and buried Irish 38-10 and I see no reason why a similar result shouldn’t occur here. With this game being on Sunday team news may not be announced at the time of publishing so I am hesitant to wade into Exeter -11 points on the handicap but I have no hesitation adding Exeter to all our multiple bets which will hopefully leave us needing a routine victory for massive profits come Sunday afternoon.

Wasps vs Northampton: Wasps got a much needed win last week against Bristol and I expect them to build on it here at home to Northampton. I expect this game to be very close and would rather take Wasps at odds against if I had to choose than Northants to win on the road, so I will add Wasps draw no bet to our 5 fold. Because I expect a close game, again I think it’s worth a couple of points on each side to lead at half time with the other winning at full time. With any luck in the other matches we will be cheering on Wasps for a massive win.
