Sports Diary, Tuesday 8 October


South Africa should have few problems in seeing off Canada in their final Group Match on Tuesday and we take a close look at this game in our daily Betting Diary.



The Springboks were very impressive in beating Italy by over 40 points in their last match, but it is no surprise that Rassie is fielding very much a B Team for this game.

South Africa are priced (-52.5) points favourites and a B Team they may be, but they should still have the beating of Canada who also have an all-important clash against Namibia on the horizon.  Canada were blown away 63-0 by New Zealand, but somehow kept the All Blacks scoreless for the last quarter of the match.

We think the Boks will run amok at some point during the game and the over 8.5 tries currently priced at 8/10 could get further support.  There are plenty of other markets on offer and many of these are covered in our Betting Preview of South Africa v Canada Match, click here to read it.
