Cheetahs v Sharks, Betting Preview & Prediction


The Cheetahs are currently 5th on the table and in desperate need of a win if they are to stay in contention for a semi-final spot.  They had to come from behind to beat the Pumas 35-31 in Nelspruit last week and the week before were well beaten at home by the Lions going down 23-39.  When these sides met in Super Rugby Unlocked in Durban the Sharks edged the game 19-13.

The Sharks go into this fixture 3rd on the table and a win here would pretty much guarantee them a semi-final spot.  They were very disappointing last week in Johannesburg going down by 15 points to the Lions and they failed to score a try.  That was in contrast to the week before in Durban where they beat the table topping Blue Bulls 32-29.

Cheetahs 31/20

Draw 25/1

Sharks 6/10

Handicap:   Cheetahs (+4.5) at 9/10, Sharks (-4.5) at 9/10

 Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Sharks (-4.5) at 9/10

The Cheetahs are struggling at the moment having lost a number of key players and while the Sharks were disappointing last week, this is an earlier kick off and conditions should be better and I expect the Sharks to put in an improved play and to win going away.
