South African teams the Cheetahs and the Kings make their return to PRO 14 action this weekend and we take a look at both of the games from a betting angle.

 

Edinburgh v Southern Kingsclick here to bet

The Kings sit bottom of Conference B with just 1 win in 10 starts and they now return to action after a layoff of just over a month, with their last start being a disappointing home loss to an understrength Benetton side.

Edinburgh are also in Conference B and are battling a bit in 5th spot with 6 wins from their 12 games. They have enjoyed success in recent weeks though beating rivals Glasgow Warriors both home and away.

Edinburgh won this fixture 37-7 last season.

Edinburgh 1/100

Kings 16/1

 

Handicap

Edinburgh -27.5 at 9/10

Kings +27.5 at 9/10

 

Suggested bet:  Handicap, Edinburgh -27.5 at 9/10

The Kings are battling with depth clearly a problem in the Union while the hosts will be on a high after their recent derby wins.

 

Zebre v Cheetahs – click here to bet

The Cheetahs sit 6th in Conference A with 2 wins in 10 matches and their last start was in  round 10 in early December when they went down 17-21 to Connacht at home. The only team below them in the Conference is Zebre depaite having won 3 from 12 matches and they are coming off successive derby losses to Benneton Treviso.

The Cheetahs recorded a rare victory on the road in this fixture last season winning 24-23 in Italy.

 

Betting

Zebre 8/10

Draw 20/1

Cheetahs 11/10

 

Handicap

Zebre -1.5 at 9/10

Cheetahs +1.5 at 9/10

 

Suggested bet:  Cheetahs win at 11/10

The betting suggests this game will be close and I suspect it will be. The Cheetahs may be rust after over a month off but Zebre will be low on confidence after the past fortnight and the visitors can capitalise on this.
