Raise a glass for the Heineken Cup

It's coming to the crunch in the Heineken Cup and you won't miss any of the action with William Hill we have a host of bets for all matches to capture your interest.

There are six exciting matches for you to get involved in this Saturday and below we have previewed the big three televised games to help you make up your mind about where the best place to make a few quid could be.

You will be able to bet in running on all three of the televised games meaning you won't miss any betting opportunity that may grab your attention.

13:35 Ulster v Harlequins - live on Sky Sports 2

Harlequins have won every game so far in the Heineken Cup including two stunning victories over French giants Stade Francais.

Should the 'Quins win they will be guaranteed a place in the quarter-finals and in turn have named a strong starting line-up.

Ulster have no chance of qualifying but would dearly love to end the London side's unbeaten run and restore some pride. Ulster are rightly 11/8 outsiders in the betting with Harlequins at 8/15. 'Quins should easily cover the four point handicap at 10/11

Ugo Monye and Tom Williams are in great form and both will be popular to score the first try at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively in the betting.

Harlequins should cruise through to the quarter finals and confirm all their early promise with a winning margin of 11-15 points at 7/1 or 16-20 points at 10/1 both realistic options as Ulster look set to struggle yet again.

Recommendation:
Harlequins -4 points - 10/11

15:35 Perpignan v Ospreys - live on Sky Sports 2

Ospreys will be desperate to win this game as it will give them the best possible chance of winning the group when they take on Leicester in the final game in what will most likely be a winner-takes-all event.

Both teams are on 15 points with Perpignan on 9 points. The French side must win this game if they are going to be in with a chance of qualification for the quarterfinals.

It looks extremely tight although Perpignan have been priced up as 8/15 favourites with the Welsh side at 11/8. Ospreys have been given a four-point head start on the handicap at 10/11.

Although the home side are favourites they are without talismanic fly half Dan Carter while Ospreys welcome back the influential Gavin Henson who will have his backers at 16/1 to score the first try.

Perpignan are on a 14 match unbeaten run at home and this really could go either way but Ospreys are just fancied to prevail by the narrowest of margins which makes them look a decent bet on the 80 minute betting.

Recommendation:
Ospreys to win - 11/8

17:35 Wasps v Leinster - live on Sky Sports 2

Wasps are rightly 4/6 favourites for this 'Battle of the Capitals' with Leinster at 6/5 in the betting. The handicap has the London side giving up two points at 10/11 with Leinster at the same price receiving two points.

The Irish side are top of the group but Wasps, after a terrible start to the season seem to be starting to fulfil some of the potential that everyone knows they have and they will know they are capable of turning over Leinster at Twickenham.

Leinster have had some dismal results away from home this season and the likes of Paul Sackey and Riki Flutey will pounce on any mistakes at odds of 10/1 and 14/1 respectively to go over first.

Wasps will have a tough game on their hands though and with Brian O'Driscoll commanding the back line anything is possible for Leinster. The Irishman is 14/1 to get the away team off to a flyer.

This should be fantastic encounter but due to Leinster's less than flattering away record and the intimidating atmosphere of Twickenham Wasps are fancied to snatch it in a close affair.

Recommendation:
Wasps -2 points - 10/11
