LIONS v STORMERS
The Stormers have been priced as favourites for this fixture with the handicap (-3.5) at the time of writing. Looking at the sides I do believe the Stormers have the edge, but I also think that altitude could play a bigger role than normal in this local derby given that the Stormers side would have spent all of lockdown at sea level.
The Lions are missing some of the big names we have seen in recent years, but they are always full of running and this is a match where I will be looking to go high on Lions points once the lines are out. For now though I will settle for a play on the handicap as I expect the Stormers to be breathing heavily in the second half and reckon the Lions can snatch a win.
