Ulster vs Bath Betting Tips - Ulster set for big home win in Champions Cup

Bath could rest players ahead of more crucial matches

Ulster face Bath at the Ravenhill Stadium as both sides conclude the group stage of the 2019/20 European Champions Cup. Ulster are tipped to comfortably beat a Bath side who have lost all five of their European games this season.

Ulster Form


Ulster suffered a 29-13 defeat to a very strong Clermont side at the Stade Marcel Michelin last week but sit pretty in second position. They can still top their group with victory over Bath and if Clermont fall against Harlequins.

Ulster have won three of their last five games with comfort, in two of those three they covered the -23 handicap. I’m backing them to cover the -23 handicap at 1.90.

Ulster News


Ulster have no reported injury news so I expect them to put out a side close to full-strength.

Bath Form


Bath have lost all five matches in the European Champions Cup and last week suffered a 25-19 defeat to Harlequins at the Ricoh Arena. They are out of the competition with no chance of qualification so Bath could use this as an opportunity to rest players.

Bath have been poor away from home, losing seven of their last eight matches and against an Ulster side enjoying an incredible season I don’t see value in the visitors. 

Bath are priced at 11.00 to win and at 1.90 to cover the +23 handicap. A draw is priced at 51.00.

Bath News


Bath our out of the Champions Cup so I expect a few changes to their side. Star flanker Francois Louw could be rested among others.

Ulster vs Bath Head to Head


Ulster have won the last five matches against Bath with the last victory coming at the Ricoh Arena earlier this season. The match ended 17-16 to Ulster but Bath are far stronger at home that on the road.

Ulster vs Bath Betting Odds


Ulster are priced at 1.03 to win at home with Bath paying 11.00 to cause an upset. The handicap is set at 23 points and pays 1.90 both ways.

Ulster can be backed to win by between 8-14 points at 5.00 while they will pay 6.00 to win between 21-25 points. Bath is valued at 41.00 to win by between 6-10 points.

Ulster vs Bath Match Up


Bath’s forward pack has struggled to contain far weaker opposition away from home than that of Ulster. Their back-line offers some respite but without getting over the gain-line among the forwards they will struggle to get anywhere near Ulster.
