HURRICANES V HIGHLANDERS, BETTING PREVIEW & PREDICTION

HURRICANES V HIGHLANDERS – click here to bet

The Hurricanes got a much needed victory last week away at the Chiefs having lost their opening two games including a home loss to the Crusaders in Round 2.

The Highlanders started the Tournament as rank underdogs and although they have only won 1 out of 3 they have performed better than many expected, beating the Chiefs by a point in Round 1 and then losing narrowly to the Blues in Auckland.  They were beaten by 20 at home to the Crusaders last week, but that score line only blew out in the final minutes.

The Hurricanes have won their last 4 home matches against the Highlanders and, all but 3 of those, would have beaten the handicap.

BETTING

Hurricanes 4/10

Draw 28/1

Highlanders 9/4

Handicap:  Hurricanes (-6.5) at 9/10, Highlanders (+6.5)

Suggested Bet:  Winning Margin, Hurricanes under 12.5 points at 17/10

I am looking to this market again as it doesn’t look to be too much between these sides, but I can see the Hurricanes finishing the stronger to win the match by 12 or less.
