Super 14 Betting odds – 8 May 2010

I came across a site called the other day which is a Sportsbook betting site in South Africa, which allows you to place bets on all sorts of sports from around the world.

Being the chance taker that I am, last weekend, I put R50 on the Bulls to beat the Sharks by 9 points. Unfortunately they beat them by 8 points, so I effectively lost my R50. BUT, I didn’t. Greatodds have a great promotion on where whatever you place on your first bet on the site, up to R1500, you can get back if you lose. So, you don’t actually end up losing your money. I got my R50 and placed some of it on South Africa to beat Afghanistan in the cricket, and ended up with about R70 in my kitty. So now I have a bit of a credit to play around with.

So, I decided to take a look at this weeks South African Super 14 rugby games, and see what the options are.

First up, tonight the Bulls take on the Crusaders at Loftus. The Bulls have been on a rampage of late, and look to take the Super 14 title again this year.
Greatodds have the Bulls to beat the Crusaders by 9 points, for an even return. So, if you put R100 bucks down, and the Bulls beat the Crusaders by 9 points or more, you walk away with R200. #Money4Jam

The First game tomorrow is the Lions against the Blues. Now we all know the Lions have been rather sad this season, so Greatodds have the Blues to by 7 points or more at 5/6 odds, meaning if they win by 7 points or more, you put down R100 you will get back R183.33

Next up the Cheethas take on the Western Force at 5 tomorrow afternoon. The Western Force have the upper hand with this one, and have a 2 point advantage also at 5/6 odds.

Finally the Stormers take on the Sharks, which should be a fantastic game to watch on Saturday at 7pm. The Stormers have the better odds on this one, with a 6 point advantage and 10/11 odds. So put down R100 and you walk away with R190.91 if they beat the Sharks.

All in all, looks like a pretty good weekend. (Note: The above values may change over the course of the weekend)
