21-05-2022 Daily Predictions Super Rugby Pacific Brumbies Vs Blues

Brumbies vs Blues

The Brumbies will be looking to bounce back from their defeat in the last match against the Crusaders. They were missing Wallaby stars Noah Lolesio and Rob Valentini but that was no reason for their poor showing. They made numerous errors throughout the match and the Crusaders pounced on those mistakes. Lolesio is back for this match and he will make a big difference to their attack. The Blues had no such problems in their last match as they brushed aside the Reds. They have been very impressive in recent weeks and sit on top of the log with 50 points.

TIP: The Brumbies are the one Aussie side that can match the Blues physicality and if their forwards can gain parity or have an advantage over the Blues pack then they could cause an upset. It remains to be seen if the Blues are going to miss the services of the Ioane brothers as they are both out with injuries. The bookies have the Blues as favourites but I am tipping the Brumbies for the upset win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 2.60, Playabets 2.80 and Sunbet 2.75

PREDICTION

The Brumbies need to win this match otherwise the gap between them and the Blues could be extended to over 10 points. The Blues on the other hand know that a win will see them host the matches in the playoffs. Beauden Barrett is finally showing the form that made him the best in the world and he is ably supported by a strong backline that includes Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Caleb Clarke. The Brumbies have been playing complete rugby this season with the forwards linking with the backs and provided Lolesio can ignite their backline they could win. I am predicting a home win by three points.

Predictions and Odds in details

Both teams score lots of tries from their lineout and the team that can better defend the rolling maul will come out on top. The Brumbies will be looking at their dangerous runners Tom Banks and Tom Wright to provide the counter attacking thrust from the back. The Blues will want to show that they can win away from home in this match. There are great odds on the Brumbies upset win but if you are looking for a safer bet then I suggest the home team on the handicap. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting (+6.5) 1.91, Sunbet (+6.5) 1.89 and Playabets (+6.5) 1.81
