|20-10-2012, 19:00||Exeter - Clermont
EXETER +6.5 TO BEAT CLERMONTFinal result: 12 - 39
Profit: 0.00 - 9 = -9
The handicap is +6.5 for Exeter. I could only choose +5 on here so just to make it clear i have written it
Exeter were superb in the last match away at Leinster where they were unlucky to lose by 3 points in the last few minutes. leinster are the defending champions so that is a great result for Exeter.
At home Exeter at quite good, winning 3 from 2 this season. In their last match they beat Saracens by 14 points and the game before inflictde Harlequins only defeat them.
If the best English teams go there and lose, what chance does an average French team have?
Celermont have won 2 and lost 2 away from home in their league, scoring a dismal 48 points in 4 matches. Compare that to Exeter who have scored 99 in only 3 games.
Exeter are in form, as they shown in their last Heineken cup match and deserve more respect than the bookies are giving them.
Clermont had a big 49-16 win over Scarlets in the last round but they were at home, where they have won all their matches in the league this season and i think the bookies are pricing them up too high based on that.
A team that has won every home game, scores impressivly and has beaten harder teams againt a French outfit who struggle on the road in France, let alone England. Ill take the handicap on Exeter thankyou!
