Force v Highlanders – click here to bet
The Force return home after a short tour which saw them lose to the Sharks in South Africa and beat the Jaguares in Argentina last week. They have been double digit underdogs in their last 2 home matches but managed to stay within the handicap losing by 9 points to both the Chiefs and the Lions.
The Highlanders return home from South Africa having beaten both the Cheetahs and the Bulls on tour and they have now won 7 matches in a row in this competition. This will be their second away match in Australia this season having beaten the Brumbies by 18-13 in Canberra in round 5. All 4 of the Highlanders away victories have been by less than 13 points.
These sides have met 4 times in Perth with both sides winning twice and an average of only 35 points per game.
Force +12.5 at 9/10
Highlanders -12.5 at 9/10
Suggested bet: Handicap, Force +12.5 at 9/10.
The Force have been very competitive at home all season and the Highlanders have battled to really put teams away and I am backing the Force to push them close in this one.
