The Pro 14 continues this weekend and we take a look at the 2 games involving South African teams and suggest a bet in each.
Cheetahs v Glasgow Warriors – click here to bet
The Cheetahs have reignited their campaign with 3 successive home victories and currently sit 3rd in Conference A, 8 points behind the Glasgow Warriors. They beat the Ospreys by 19 points last weekend and they beat Leinster by the same margin and Zebre by 15 points in Bloemfontein.
They will face a tough task though against a Glasgow side that has won 5 from 5 and has beaten Connacht and the Cardiff Blues on the road this season. Last week the Warriors were too strong for Treviso at home winning 37-21.
Glasgow Warriors 17/10
Cheetahs -5.5 at 5/6
Glasgow Warriors +5.5 at 5/6
Suggested bet: Handicap, Cheetahs -5.5 at 5/6.
The Cheetahs are a very different proposition when playing at home and I think they have the ability to run this Glasgow side off their feet and to win by 6 points or more.
Treviso v Southern Kings – click here to bet
Treviso sit 2nd from bottom in Conference B on 9 points and the team below them is the Kings who have yet to score a point in their Pro 14 debut. Last week Treviso lost by 16 points to the Glasgow Warriors on the road and other away matches this season saw them upset Edinburgh 20 -17 and lose 34-3 away to Munster in Round 1.
The Kings were beaten 29-13 away at the Dragons last week, their 5th successive defeat and their 3 matches in Europe have seen them lose by 47, 22 and 16 points.
Southern Kings 13/2
Treviso -17.5 at 5/6
Southern Kings +17.5 at 5/6
Suggested bet: Handicap, Treviso -17.5 at 5/6.
Treviso are not the sort of side that regularly enjoys these victories and I expect them to push on hard here to put the Kings away by as many points as possible. They are not the strongest side in the Pro 14 by any means but I think they will pack too many guns for a Kings side desperately short of personnel.
