Kick-off: 1830, 25/04/2019
Stadium: Celtic Park
TV: Premier Sports
More than 40,000 fans are expected at Celtic Park on Saturday for the Pro 14 final between Glasgow and Leinster, so home advantage could play a big part in the outcome.
The Warriors will be roared on by a strong support as they seek to lift this trophy for the second time, having previously prevailed in 2015.
That makes 7/5 for the underdogs a tempting price and good enough to warrant support for our first Glasgow vs Leinster prediction.
A Look At Glasgow’s Betting Odds
Glasgow topped the Conference A table this term, winning 16 of their 21 fixtures and playing some scintillating rugby along the way.
Kiwi coach Dave Rennie encourages his team to attack at every opportunity and that approach helped them to swamp Ulster 50-20 in the semi-finals.
Utility forward Rob Harley said: “It’s a great feeling knowing there will be thousands of our own fans watching us in a final in our own city.
“We packed out Scotstoun against Ulster last weekend and got great support. Celtic Park obviously holds a few more than that, so we’re expecting the noise to be even bigger.”
Swashbuckling Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg will be going all out to enjoy his last game for the club before joining Exeter and will be backed up by a host of international teammates.
The Warriors won 39-24 when these teams met in Dublin during the regular season last month, so 91/100 for the hosts with 3.5 points start has obvious appeal from the Glasgow vs Leinster odds.
A Look At Leinster’s Betting Odds
Defending champions Leinster led the way in Conference B, posting 15 victories and one draw to finish 13 points clear of Ulster.
Leo Cullen’s men then put in a typically professional display to see off Munster 24-9 in the semis and will be a tough nut to crack, as usual.
However, whereas the Irish province went into last year’s Pro 14 decider after lifting the European Cup, before beating Scarlets 40-32 at Aviva Stadium, their mood is less bullish this time.
Leinster blew a 10-0 lead when thumped 20-10 by Saracens in the Champions Cup final at St James’ Park in Newcastle and looked an old team at the end of that contest.
If Glasgow can hold their own up front and at set-pieces, the feeling is that they can run the holders ragged in open play.
Let’s finish off our Glasgow vs Leinster betting tips by taking 9/4 for the Warriors to be ahead at half-time and full-time.
GLASGOW 50-20 Ulster
LEINSTER 24-9 Munster
Head-to-head: Leinster 24-39 Glasgow
