Betting Thread Part III - Insert witty title here

As silly season is almost over, Paddy already have odds up for the first round of the Top 14, I wonder if we'll enjoy markets going up two weeks in advance throughout the season



Main questions are if RM's Galácticos will gel first time out and cover the 14 points and what did happen to Thomond's famous 50 units

My 50 units went up to 63 units thanks to some timely backing of Cork and Limerick.
.
In terms of those odds above, those Racing odds look decent if they name their strongest side. However this match will be at La Rochelle and not Colombes, Racing moved it because they were concerned about a lack of attendance (Paris is basically on holiday in August!).

Other than Racing, nothing really stands out tbh. It's not in your list but Montpellier are slight favourites at home to Toulon, that one is very difficult to call!

Anyone like the look of Tim Visser to be top tryscorer in the Rabo again (for the 5th consecutive season), 5/1?

Oyanaxx to stay within 12 of Bayonne looks tempting I'd have to say. Not the biggest fan of season long bets but 5/1 does look decent for Visser to be top try scorer.

Looking forward to the Currie Cup starting up again too I'd have to say, seems a basic rule of thumb for that is to bet on unders for matches in Cape Town and Durban and overs for matches in the Veldt

I've decided ill be supporting Grenoble this season. Big Irish influence and I like their style and philosophy.

The Top14 odds are usually out a fair bit ahead of the games so I don't think this is a new thing.

Boks 4/1 to win the rugby championship, bit of value in that I reckon

I know Fionn Carr is back with Connacht but Dannie Poolman for our Top Try scorer at 11/2 looks tasty

Think I'll do a little log myself, I'll start with 50 units also and We'll see who can do most.

Cool, the more people that keep a log the better!
