Punters will have no shortage of options when it comes to betting this weekend and while the Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals are the highlight, there is also English Premier League action and some top class horse racing.
The Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals played over Saturday and Sunday with England against New Zealand on Saturday. England are (+7.5) point underdogs and they do look that they have it all to do against this New Zealand side. We expect this to be a close encounter and our suggested bet is in the Winning Margin where we like New Zealand by under 12.5 points at 14/10.

Sunday’s match sees Wales against South Africa and Wales is certainly battling with injuries at the moment although South Africa are also without Kolbe. The current line is Wales (+8.5) and the bet we fancy here is South Africa to win by more than 12.5 points at 13/10.

The English Premier League is back after an International break and Manchester City are 1/10 to see off Aston Villa in Saturday’s early kick-off.
The pick of the weekend’s fixtures looks to be Liverpool at home to Tottenham with Liverpool 11/20 to get back on the winning trail after being held to a 1-1 draw at Manchester United. Tottenham had a good win in Europe in mid-week, but they are battling domestically and they are as big as 5/1 for the win with the draw at 69/20.

There are a number of PSL matches taking place this weekend and the pick amongst them must be Sundowns up against Kaizer Chiefs. Chiefs currently top the log on 19 points from 8 matches, 2 points ahead of Sundowns but Sundowns have a game in hand. Sundowns are 15/20 favourites with the draw at 23/10 and we do believe there is some value in Chiefs here at 17/4 and more conservative punters could take Kaizer Chiefs (+1) on the handicap at even money, meaning they can draw or win the match for the bet to arrive.

Saturday sees a double header with Turffontein getting going at 12:30 and the 9th and final race at 17:20 and it is certainly hard to look past 3/10 shot, Gin Fizz in the 5th Race run over 1450 meters. It is another Mike de Kock trained horse that we fancy with a bit of value in the 3rd Race, Horse No. 3 Mrs Simpson, currently priced at 9/1.
