The Springboks play the British & Irish Lions in the first Test of the series this Saturday and while I am still backing the Boks to win, I don’t think it will come quickly during the game.
Like Mark, I’m not hugely impressed with the run on XV for the Springboks, and I think they may struggle in the first half against a strong Lions outfit.
The Boks have often found themselves trailing early on and having to pull it back together over the 80 minutes (just think back to Rassie’s first Test series in charge against England in 2018).
The value bet I like is the Lions to be leading at halftime but the Boks to ultimately win the match. The odds stand at a favourable 7/1.
So my bet on this weekend’s rugby is for R500 and will be: B&I Lions / South Africa (HT/FT)
It pays out R3500.
Happy betting folks,
