CHEETAHS v LIONS
The Cheetahs were 13-13 with the Bulls at half-time at Loftus last week, but ended up losing the game 40-13 and their last home game was in Super Rugby Unlocked when they beat the Griquas 28-9 and they won all 3 of their home matches in Super Ruby Unlocked.
The Lions trailed for long periods against Western Province at home last week, but they snatched victory in the dying minutes winning by 22-19. The week before they had beaten Griquas 20-17 in a shortened match, but they also snatched the lead just before the storm hit and on the road in Super Rugby Unlocked the Lions lost to the Sharks and the Stormers.
These sides never met in Super Rugby Unlocked as the game was cancelled due to COVID-19. These sides met last year in the Currie Cup in Bloemfontein with the Lions edging the fixture 24-22.

Handicap: Cheetahs (+1.5) at 9/10, Lions (-1.5) at 9/10
Suggested Bet: Winning Margin, Lions under 12.5 points at 16/10
This is traditionally a very tight fixture and I think the Lions have the momentum going into this game to claim a narrow victory.
