Friday has plenty of Sports Betting opportunities and we take a look at some of the highlights in our daily betting Diary.
Let’s start with Japan v the Springboks kicking off at 12h15 South African time on Friday. The current handicap is South Africa (-20.5) points and if anything will be leaning towards the home team at that handicap. If you are undecided on the match result or handicap there are plenty of other betting markets though including total points where the line is set at 60.5 9/10 the pair. We really like the look of this Bok pack and we think they may help the Springboks to get away to a quick start and fancy South Africa (-10.5) on the half-time handicap, meaning we need to lead by 11 or more points at the break.

There are two more International matches televised on Friday night with Scotland (-27.5) points at home to Georgia and England (-33.5) points at home to Italy. We haven’t got any firm views on those games yet, but suggest you have a look at the markets yourselves.

Ardent Rugby fans should also note that there is a live Mitre10 Cup match on Friday morning with Hawkes Bay massive favourites against a woeful Southland who were beaten 18-0 by Canterbury last week. The current lines are Hawkes Bay (-27.5) and based on what we saw last week we could quite like Southland under 13.5 points at 9/10.
