Not a match I would normally be looking at but I am interested in the tied matches we get at Rugby Union. The position of both of these make them candidates despite neither of them managing it yet this year. Biarritz are bottom and almost relegated while Bayonne are 4 pts above Oyonnax in 3rd bottom. The 2 are the lowest scorers in the league but neither are conceding ridiculous amounts of points.
Just a little look at how Biarritz have done against the bottom 6 at Home
15-22 v Bordeaux
They are yet to play Oyonnax or Brive at home. Of note though is Biarritz’s points in their last 6 home games 6, 6, 9, 12, 15, 21, all bar the 15 scored at Bordeaux are penalties.
Bayonne away are not much better, they get hammered by the top clubs but do keep it close against the bottom 6
They took a spanking at Bordeaux and still have Grenoble to play. Their totals away this year have been 8, 8, 6, 16, 9, 6, 12, 10, 0, 3 scoring just 4 tries.
The last 2 head to heads between the two in Biarritz give you
Ties are traditionally hard to come by in Rugby Union hence the odds of 20-1 in most tight matches but some are more likely than others and this seems like a good chance.
There are a couple of ways of approaching this with Betfair back to lay as if it is close and just penalties the price will shorten. However I prefer the dutching of results and the lowest odds to have a tie at HT or FT with other outcomes is 20-1 with the others at 25-1, 50-1, 50-1 and 100-1. The tie at HT is 9-1.
