Lions v Jaguares – click here to bet
The Lions won last week’s game against the Stormers by 13 points despite starting as 3.5 points underdogs with the bookmakers. They have only lost once all season and that was away to Jaguares but they did field a weakened team. The Lions home games have been high scoring and have averaged 70 points this season with the Lions themselves averaging 44 points.
The Jaguares managed to beat the Kings in the first game of the season in Port Elizabeth but since then they have lost 3 games in South Africa, to the Stormers by 7, the Sharks by 5 and last week to the Bulls by 13.
These sides met in Johannesburg last season with the Lions winning 52-24.
Lions -13.5 at 9/10
Jaguares +13.5 at 9/10
Suggested bet: Handicap, Lions -13.5 at 9/10.
There has been money for the Lions this week and the handicap has shifted out from an opening call of 12.5. I think the money is spot on and while the Jaguares might offer early resistance the Lions can pull clear and win by 14 points or more.
