Varsity Cup Football 2017, Round 3 Betting Preview


Round 3 of the Varsity Cup Football takes place on Thursday 10th August and we focus on the televised fixtures in our betting preview.


UWC v UFHclick here to bet

UWC are 4th on the log with 3 points after losing 1-2 away to CUT in Round 2. They had a good win at home in Round 1 beating Wits by 6-0.

They now face UFH who have yet to score and are last on the table after losing at home 0-7 to TUT last week and 0-3 to NWU in the first Round.



UWC 4/10

Draw 3/1

UFH 6/1


Suggested Bet:  UWC win at 4/10

This is a one-sided betting heat and frankly based on the 1st 2 rounds the 4/10 about a UWC win looks more than fair. It is not the sort of bet I usually take straight up though and I would suggest this is a good one to add to your accumulator.


UJ v TUT – click here to bet

UJ won 1-0 away against UP TUKS in the previous round and they lie in 5th place on the log with 3 points.  In Round 1 they lost 0-1 away to CUT

They now play TUT who had a big win away to UFH in Round 2 beating them 7-0. In Round 1 they drew at home with UP TUKS at 1-1.  Tut have 4 points and are 3rd on the table.



UJ 15/10

Draw 2/1

TUT 17/10


Suggested bet: UJ win at 15/10

UJ play their 1st home game of the season and I am a bit surprised to see them offered at 15/10 for the win. Their only loss was against CUT away and CUT look like one of the teams to beat this season.


Non-Televised Games

WITS 17/10, Draw 2/1, CUT 15/10 – click here to bet

NWU 15/10, Draw 2/1, UP TUKS 17/10 – click here to bet


Suggested bet: CUT win at 15/10

I don’t usually bet on non-televised games but Wits have looked very poor in both matches losing by 3 and 6 goals on the road. They are at home now but playing against a side that has a 100% record.
