Western Province v Pumas, Betting Preview & Prediction


Western Province badly need a big win here after successive defeats, at home to the Bulls and away at the Lions.  In both cases they appeared to have victory wrapped up before letting the opponents back into the match.

The Pumas started underdogs at home to Griquas last week, but won the game 22-17 and in the 1st Round of the Currie Cup they lost by 35 points on the road at the Sharks.

These sides met in Nelspruit in Super Rugby Unlocked and playing as the Stormers that night, Western Province were under big pressure and only won in the final minutes of the game 42-37.

Western Province 1/25

Draw 66/1

Pumas 14/1

Handicap:  Western Province (-23.5) at 9/10, Pumas (+23.5) at 9/10

Suggested Bet:  Half-time Handicap, Western Province (-11.5) at 9/10

The Pumas are a side which never stops coming at you and I can see them scoring some consolation tries to perhaps beat the main handicap, but I think Western Province will start strong and I am backing them to lead by 12 or more at the break.
