Feast on Heineken Cup rugby with the lunch time kick offs

Another cracking weekend of Heineken Cup action awaits us and after some upsets last week, we take a look at every televised match to see who looks like they will be victorious in round two.

Viadana v Leicester - 13:30 live on Sky Sports Red Button

This should be an easy win for 1/25 chances Leicester as they visit Italy to take on 9/1 outsiders Viadana. The Italian side fared a lot better than many thought they would against Clermont going down 36-18 after tiring late on.

After a draw with Ospreys, the Tigers will want a convincing win to kick start their Heineken Cup campaign and the handicap set with Leicester giving up 19 points at 10/11 looks about right.

Leicester seem to have got over their try-scoring problem with four last week with Johne Murphy 9/1 to score first again, while Billy Twelvetrees at 12/1 also looks a likely candidate for first try, while a winning margin of 16-20 at 6/1 looks about right, and the Tigers are taken to cover the 19 point handicap.

Biarritz v Gloucester - 13:35 live on Sky Sports Red Button

A fixtures which last season you might have given Gloucester a chance, but not this one, Biarritz at 1/5 looks like buying money, while the away side are 10/3 and have a 10 point start on the handicap at 10/11, an amount that the French team should be able to cover.

Gloucester scraped part Newport last week and really deserved to lose, while Biarritz just beat Glasgow away from home with 20/1 chance Magnus Lund scoring the first try, but Imanol Harinordoquy is formidable with the ball in hand and is worth a bet at 16/1 to go over first.

James Simpson - Daniel and Lesley Vainikolo carry a potent threat at 14/1 and 12/1 respectively to score first or 5/2 and 9/4 to go over anytime.

Backing Biarritz in nearly any market looks a sure fire way to profit in this game as Gloucester continue disappoint and if they are as inept as they were last week against this strong opposition then a hiding could be on the cards and the French side -10 points looks a gift from the gods.

Munster v Treviso - 13:35 live on Sky Sports 2

Odds of 1/100 about Munster will tell you what kind of chance 16/1 Treviso have and overcoming a 34 point deficit at odds of 10/11 should in theory be no problem for the home side.

Munster have been a bit stop and start this season though with a 30-0 loss to Leinster before losing last week in a close game at Franklins Gardens to Northampton, while Treviso stunned the world by beating Perpignan 9-8 and they may be able to stay inside the mammoth handicap.

The likes of Doug Howlett and Keith Earls could have a field day though and both are 8/1 to score first try, while the likes of Tomas O'Leary and David Wallace could well get on the score sheet, both at 5/2 to bag a try anytime.

While we wouldn't put anyone off Munster on the handicap, there has been enough reservations about their performances to have a niggling doubt they can rack up a cricket score, and O'Leary to score anytime at 5/2 looks a safer bet.
