Bulls v Pumas, Betting Preview & Prediction


This game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but has been pushed out a day to allow Pumas players to complete their quarantine.

The Bulls have all got this Tournament wrapped up as they lead by 2 points with a superior points difference and the Sharks v Stormers game has been cancelled.

They will also be fresh having had a bye last week having beaten the Lions by 5 points in Jo’burg the week before.  Their home form has been impressive with a 33 point win over the Stormers and a 27 point win over the Sharks although they were pushed in their first home game, only beating Griquas by 7.

The Pumas are also coming off a free week having had to cancel their game against the Lions last week due to COVID in their camp.  Their only victory was Griquas away and their only other away match was a 22 point loss to the Cheetahs in Week 1, a game where they scored a consolation try to keep the score slightly respectable.

Bulls 1/50

Draw 75/1

Pumas 25/1

Handicap:  Bulls (-29.5) at 9/10, Pumas (+29.5) at 9/10

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Pumas (+29.5) at 9/10

It is hard to be confidence in this Pumas side, but this is a massive handicap and I can see a situation where the Bulls step off the gas allowing the Pumas to score some late consolation tries.  This bet would have arrived in the last 3 Currie Cup matches between the sides.
