Local football fans have live Absa Premier League action to look forward to on Friday night and we take a look at the match between Maritzburg United and Highlands Park from a betting angle.
Maritzburg have made a slow start to the season and go into this weekend 14th on the log and sitting just outside the relegation zone. They have taken 7 points from a possible 8 and have only taken 2 points from the last 9 they have played for in the League. Maritzburg’s matches have been very low scoring with only 2 goals in total in their last 6 matches, 4 of which finished in goalless draws and 3 of those goalless draws were at home. Highlands are 10th on the table with 11 points from 9 matches. They were beaten 1-0 by Bidvest Wits away in their last start and 5 of their 9 matches have been draws.
These sides met in the Telkom Knockout Cup in October, with Maritzburg winning 2-1 at home.

Maritzburg United 29/20
Highlands Park 24/10
Suggested bet: Correct score, 0-0, at 23/4.
This game looks lightly to be tight and I think there may be better betting propositions on the weekend, for that reason I am going to keep my stake low and take a speculative play on yet another goalless draw in a Maritzburg home game.
