Rugby League Challenge Cup The Chiefs have not won a game for almost a month, but they are still dominant favourites to beat the Waratahs. The Chiefs go into this clash on the back of a loss at the hands of the Crusaders and a draw with the Blues, but the Waratahs obviously represent a much weaker opponent.

They have won their past four games as home favourites, but they are against the line in this scenario. The Waratahs were not disgraced against the Highlanders last weekend and they have improved somewhat in recent weeks. Winning as away underdogs has been tough for the Waratahs — they have won only one of their past six games as away underdogs and they are against the line in this scenario.

This is a game that the market looks to have got just about right and I am more than happy to stay out from a betting perspective.

The Brumbies have recorded two wins on the trot and they are clear favourites in this clash with the Rebels. The Brumbies cemented their place on the top of the Australian Conference with wins in South Africa over the Kings and the Jaguares and they now look set to return to the Super Rugby Finals. They have won four of their past five games as home favourites and they are now against the line in this scenario.

It has not been a happy couple of months for the Rebels and they have now lost five games on the trot. The Rebels have won only one of their past six games as away underdogs and they are against the line. The Hurricanes head into this clash on the back of big wins over both the Cheetahs and the Bulls, while they will take confidence that they have not lost to the Force in their history.

While the Hurricanes have won four of their past five games as away favourites, they are only against the line in this scenario. The Force bounced back from their lacklustre effort against the Highlanders to beat the Reds and they have generally been competitive this season.

They may have won only one of their past five games as home underdogs, but they are against the line in this scenario and were only narrowly beaten by the Lions, Chiefs and the Blues. The line of The Sharks went into the mid season break with four wins from their past five games and they will start this clash with the Bulls as clear favourites.

The Sharks have won seven of their past eight games as home favourites for a clear profit and they are against the line in this scenario. It has been a Super Rugby season to forget for the Bulls and they went into the break on the back of four straight losses. The Bulls have lost their past five games as away underdogs and they are a very poor against the line in this situation. The Jaguares have won just one of their past seven games, but they will still go into this clash with the Kings as clear favourites.

It has been another disappointing season for the Jaguares and they have proven to be very tough to trust from a betting perspective — they have won six of their past nine games as home favourites, but they are against the line in this scenario. The Kings went into the mid season break on the back of a heavy defeat at the hands of the Lions, but they have actually played some solid rugby so far this season.

They have won two of their eight games as away underdogs for a big profit and they are a most impressive against the line in this scenario. The Stormers are another team that went into the mid season break in poor form, but they will still start this clash as favourites. The Stormers have won just one of their past six games, but they are a side that can be trusted as favourites and they are as away favourites, while they are against the line in this scenario.

A win over the Sunwolves delivered the Cheetahs their first win in over two months, but this is obviously much tougher and their record against the Stormers is very poor. The Cheetahs have won just one of their past seven games as home underdogs, but they are against the line in this scenario. The Stormers should be able to return to winning form, but there is no value at their current price and I am happy to stay out of this clash from a betting perspective.

The Lions are the form South African team in Super Rugby and they are easily the shortest-priced favourites of the weekend. The Lions have won their past 14 games as favourites and they are against the line as home favourites. Winning has been tough for the Sunwolves so far this season, but on the most part they have been competitive when they have faced South African sides.

The Sunwolves have lost their past eight games as away underdogs, but they are an impressive against the line in this scenarip. The other big game of the weekend is in the early hours of Sunday morning when the Lions take on the Sharks in a key fixture in the South African conference. The Chiefs and Crusaders currently sit on top of the New Zealand Conference and this is a massive game for both sides.

The Crusaders have lost just two games this season and they will go into this clash as clear favourites, but they have lost their past three games against the Chiefs. In saying that, they have proven to be a very safe bet as favourites in the past 12 months and they are as away favourites in this period. The Chiefs went into the midseason break on the back of a disappointing loss to the Waratahs and they have been a touch inconsistent this season.

They have been a losing betting proposition as favourites, but as uinderdogs they are yet to suffer a defeat and have been highly profitable in this scenario. This match should be an absolute ripper, but the market has got this game just about right and I am happy to stay out from a betting perspective. The Brumbies have won 20 of their 26 Super Rugby games against the Reds and have won the past three games played between the two teams in dominant fashion.

The Brumbies found their best form in the lead-up to the mid season break and they are clear favourites to record their fourth straight win on Friday night.

Favourtism has been a position that has suited the Brumbies in the past 12 months and they have an excellent record of against the line as home favourites. The Reds beat the Sunwolves in the final round before the mid season break, but there was still not a great deal to like about their performance. They have not won a game away from home in the past 12 months and their record against the line as away underdogs is a average The Brumbies beat the Reds by a combined total of 73 points last season and they should have no trouble covering the line of This will be the first ever meeting between the Sunwolves and Waratahs and the Waratahs will start this game as a very short-priced favourites.

The Sunwolves went into the mid season break after suffering a heavy defeat at the hands of the Brumbies, but they have saved their best performances for their home games.

They may have only won a single game, but their record against the line as home underdogs is a highly profitable and they have been given a start of The Waratahs produced their best performance of the season against the Chiefs and they could prove to be a genuine threat if they are able to sneak into the finals.

They have won both their games as away favourites this season, but they are only against the line and often save their worst performances for teams that they should beat handily. It would not surprise to see the Waratahs produce a rusty effort and I am keen to back the Sunwolves with a start of The Hurricanes got themselves back into finals contention with a win over the Highlanders in their final game before the mid season break, but they have been a tough side to trust from a betting perspective this season.

They are a non-profitable as home favourites and their record against the line is an average , while they have covered the line in only two of their past five games against the Blues. I got the GSP last week. First of the season for me. I would agree with Morras about the cains over the saders, there is very little in this game.

Either team cam takeit on their day. I recon the caines are more likely to have their day than the saders. The lions game is bothering me. Im also not 18 points confident in the cheifs, tahs have been decent.
