South Africa vs Wales  

South Africa welcomes Wales to the Green Point Stadium for this deciding match in their test series. Wales pulled of a last gasp try in the last match to win 13-12 thanks to a touchline conversion from replacement flyhalf Gareth Anscombe.  The Springboks will be hurting from that loss as it was their first ever defat to Wales on their home soil. They contributed to their own demise by selecting a largely second string team for the last match but they have learnt their lesson and have selected what is their strongest possible team for this match.

TIP: It will be a special moment for giant lock Eben Etzebeth he plays in his 100th test match. South Africa will want to give his the nest ever present in his milestone match, a series clinching win. The last four matches between these sides and seen the victory margin being five points or less. Wales will be in buoyant mood after their great win in the last match but injuries to key players will certainly count against them in their quest to win the series. The bookies have the Springboks as favourites and I also back them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.20, Playabets 1.18 and Sunbet 1.82

Latest results for both teams

Wales beat the Springboks 13-12 in their last match

PREDICTION

Their biggest injury concern surrounds Captain Dan Biggar as he had to leave the field in the last match and it is still unclear if he will be available for this match. Wales will know that the fired Springbok team will be throwing everything at them from the first whistle in front of a full house crowd therefore their defence will need to be rock slid from the outset. They will be quietly confident of causing another an upset as they have won five of the last eight matches against the Springboks. If the home team can have a good start to the match then they will run out comfortable winners. I am predicting a Springbok win by 15 points.

Predictions and Odds in details

Both the previous matches results were decided in the dying moments of the game and this game may not be that close as the home team will be at full strength while the visitors are walking wounded. South Africa will need their Captain Siya Kolisi to regain his form in the most crucial time and to lead from the front while the Welsh will do well to with stand the early pressure from the home side. We are backing the Springboks to lead at halftime and to win the match.There are poor odds on the Springboks outright win therefore I suggest the home team on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (-11.5) 1.91, Sunbet (-11.5) 1.89 and Playabets (-11.5) 1.81
