Cheetahs vs Bulls

It’s a top of the table clash as the Cheetahs welcome the Bulls to Bloemfontein. The previously unbeaten Cheetahs have lost their last two matches and will be desperate not to lose three in a row. They have been severely missing Springbok Frans Steyn and have lost his powerful ball carrying and huge boot. These two teams will be going all out to secure the top spot as the final will be hosted by the team that finishes first on the log. The Bulls lead the Cheetahs by four points and so the home team need to win without allowing the Bulls to get a bonus point.

TIP: The Cheetahs have looked a shadow of the team that was destroying opposition in the first nine rounds and will need to get back their killer instinct otherwise the Bulls will upset them. The visitors have selected some URC stars like Lionel Mapoe and Stedman Gans but the overall look of the team is very young. The bookies have the Cheetahs as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.45, Playabets 1.42 and Sunbet 1.50

HEAD TO HEAD STATS

Cheetahs vs Bulls

  • The Bulls have won three of the last four matches against the Cheetahs.
  • The Cheetahs have only lost one of their last five home matches against the Bulls.

Latest results for both teams

The Cheetahs lost 29-28 to the Pumas in their last match while the Bulls beat the Pumas 31-26 in their last match.

PREDICTION

The Cheetahs will again look to veteran Springbok Ruan Pienaar to guide this team to a comprehensive victory. If they win and the Bulls get a bonus point then the Bulls will retain top spot. The Bulls have shown that despite playing in two competitions this season that they have great depth and that fact will be tested in this match. Players like Rosko Specman and Clayton Blommetjies are among the most dangerous players in the competition in counter attacking therefore the Bulls will need to be accurate with their kicking. The Cheetahs despite being known as a running team have a powerful pack and they will rely on them to get them through this match. We are predicting a Cheetahs win by 14 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

The Cheetahs have been deadly in this competition with their rolling maul and no team has been able to stop them from scoring with the maul. The Bulls will need a strong maul defence in order to be competitive in this match. The visitors will be looking to score four tries or lose by less than seven points to get the bonus point that will allow them to retain top spot. The Cheetahs on the outright win offer poor odds therefore I suggest the home team on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-5.5) 1.91, Sunbet (-5.5) 1.89 and Playabets (-5.5) 1.81
