Cheetahs v Southern Kings, Pro 14 Preview


The Cheetahs and Kings meet for the second time in a couple of weeks when they clash in Bloemfontein in a Pro 14 match on Saturday and we take a look at the game from a betting angle.

The Cheetahs are 6th in Conference A but they edged closer to playoff contention thanks to a thumping victory over the Zebre Rugby Club last weekend.  They have played 6 matches at home, winning 3 and losing 3.  The Kings are bottom of Conference B but they did close the gap on the Dragons above them to just 2 points after a stunning victory over Edinburgh in Port Elizabeth last week.  They looked down and out heading into the final 8 minutes but scored 2 tries in quick succession to win the game.

The Kings and the Cheetahs met in Port Elizabeth 2 weeks back with the Cheetahs scoring a try after the hooter to win 24-17.

Cheetahs 1/7

Draw 33/1

Southern Kings 9/2



Cheetahs -13.5 at 9/10

Southern Kings +13.5 at 9/10


Suggested bet:  Handicap, Cheetahs (-13.5) at 9/10

My main bet in this game will probably be the points line where I expect the bookies to come in around 58.5.  I think we are going to see plenty of points and this fixture last season had 69 points with the Cheetahs winning by 21, I think something similar is on the cards
