15-01-2022 Daily Predictions Currie Cup Cheetahs vs Griquas

Cheetahs vs Griquas

The Cheetahs will be looking to start their Currie Cup campaign off with a win when they take on neighbours Griquas. They have certainly held the wood over the men from Kimberly winning four of the last five matches. Griquas come into the new season with a team of rookies. The new players are experienced but they have recently moved to the Griquas. Ex- Griqua Enver Brandt will be facing his old colleagues after his move to the Cheetahs. He will want to show all his speed and guile in his first start for his new employers.

TIP: The Cheetahs will be counting on experienced Springboks like Ruan Pienaar and Frans Steyn to guide them to victory. As always the Cheetahs will look to run the ball from any part of the field so the Griquas must be on red alert from the first whistle. The Cheetahs certainly hold the advantage in the backline with great counter attacking players like Clayton Blommetjies and Craig Barry in their team. The bookies have the Cheetahs as favourites and I also tip them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows:  Worldsportsbetting 1.35, Playabets 1.32 and Sunbet 1.37

HEAD TO HEAD STATS

Cheetahs vs Griquas

  • Seven of the last eight matches have been won by the home side.
  • Cheetahs have never lost at home to Griquas.

Latest results for both teams

Cheetahs lost 31-30 to WP in their last match while Griquas lost 28-24 to the Sharks in their last match.

PREDICTION

The Cheetahs may be the team that loves the ball in hand approach but everything starts up front for them. They have a very experienced front row and will have the dominant scrum. They very seldom kick for goal when they get penalties but rather choose to kick for touch. The Griquas will need their maul defence to be on form otherwise it could be a long day for the men from Kimberly. Griquas must be accurate with their kicking as aimless kicks will result in the Cheetahs scoring tries for fun with their great counter attacking players. I am predicting a Cheetahs win by more than 10 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

Griquas will need their experienced players like Stefan Ungerer and captain Ruan Steenkamp to have big games and guide the new players into the team. The Cheetahs will look to attack rookie Griquas flyhalf, Zander du Plessis and no doubt Frans Steyn will be launching his runs down the flyhalf channel. The bookies are offering poor returns on the Cheetahs outright win therefore I suggest the home team on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-7.5) 1.91, Sunbet (-7.5) 1.87 and Playabets (-7.5) 1.82
