CHEETAHS v GRIQUAS
The Cheetahs suffered a heavy defeat last week at Newlands losing by 17 points to the Stormers. They had previously been edged by 6 points away at the Sharks and had their away match against the Lions called off due to COVID-19 in the home team camp. Their home form is impressive with a 53-31 win over the Pumas and a 19-17 win against the Bulls.
The Griquas turned in, probably their performance of the season last week when they almost beat the Sharks at home, losing by just a point in a high scoring encounter. That was in stark contrast to the 33 point hammering they took at the same ground the week before against the Stormers and on the road they lost by 30 to the Lions and by 7 points to the Bulls.

Handicap: Cheetahs (-19.5) at 9/10, Griquas (+19.5) at 9/10
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Cheetahs (-19.5) at 9/10
The Cheetahs should be too strong for this Griquas side and while a 19 point handicap looks high it would have arrived in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads between the sides in Bloemfontein.
