Bet on All Blacks to beat Boks by a spread of 4 to 13 points

The Times (South Africa) - - Sport The Odds -

● The Spring­boks showed good char­ac­ter by com­ing from be­hind to draw with the Wal­la­bies last week­end. The con­cern, how­ever, was the be­low-par dis­play of South Africa’s No 10, Elton Jan­tjies and if we have a re­peat of that per­for­mance against the All Blacks this week­end in New Zealand we are go­ing to be on the end of a beat­ing. I think the Boks will give a good ac­count of them­selves, but be­lieve the world cham­pi­ons will edge them out. All Blacks to win by a spread of four to 13 points.

We had a full fix­ture list of Euro­pean foot­ball in mid­week, and this can present chal­lenges for teams who play in mid­week and then have to play again over the fol­low­ing week­end. Tak­ing this into ac­count, our three Value Bets of the Week­end (our suc­cess rate for these se­lec­tions is over 80%) are:

❍ Newly pro­moted French Ligue One team, Amiens to win or draw against a strug­gling Mar­seille team, who played in Europe yes­ter­day, at fair odds of 8-10;

❍ Ein­tra­cht Frank­furt to win at home, where they have a good track record, against Augs­burg in the Bun­desliga, at 8-10; and

❍ Ju­ven­tus to win away at Sas­suolo in the Ital­ian Serie A, at good odds of 5-10. The only con­cern is pos­si­ble fa­tigue af­ter they were

MIKE REC­OM­MENDS:

R216 per­mu­ta­tion for the Soc­cer 6 Pool Satur­day

16 Septem­ber (S6 V3 P1) is: M1 = 1, 2, 3; M2 = 1; M3 = 3; M4 = 1, 2, 3; M5 = 1, 2; M6 = 1, 2. R240 per­mu­ta­tion for theRugby 5 Pool is on Fri­day

15 Septem­ber (R5 P1) and the se­lec­tions are: M1 =

3, 4, 5; M2 = 3, 4; M3 = 1, 2; M4 = 2; M5 = 1, 2. soundly beaten in a Cham­pi­ons League fix­ture in Spain, 3-0 by Barcelona in mid­week.

This tre­ble gives you a po­ten­tial re­turn of close to 4-1.

On the lo­cal scene, the game of the week­end in the PSL is the clash be­tween Kaizer Chiefs and cham­pi­ons Bid­vest Wits. I fancy the draw here at odds of 22-10.
