To take advantage of the odds before they possibly shorten, these previews are published before the team sheets are announced. Those who are more risk-averse should wait for the squad lists before wagering.



Chiefs vs. Hurricanes


With just two rounds to play, this fixture has big implications for the top four. Historically, home advantage has been incredibly important in Super Rugby postseasons. The Hurricanes currently sit second while the Chiefs sit five points behind in 4th. Purely based on stats, you would expect the Chiefs to win. They have won six in a row at home and the Hurricanes have gone 0-2 as the away underdog over the last twelve months. The Hurricanes have also lost their last two away fixtures coming into this clash. In conflicting stats, the Hurricanes have lost their last two away games against the Chiefs, however they have covered the line in their last four visits to FMG Stadium. Regardless of the winner, I expect a close game. The Chiefs haven’t lost at home by more than 12 points over the last twelve months, while the Hurricanes haven’t lost any game by more than 12 points over the same period. Eleven of the last twelve meetings between these two at FMG Stadium were settled by 1-12 points. I would back both the Chiefs 1-12 at 3.00 (Dabble) and the Hurricanes 1-12 at 3.50 (Dabble). Those looking for more risk should simply back the Chiefs 1-12.



Brumbies vs. Rebels


The Brumbies have won eight in a row at home and they have won six in a row against the Rebels. The Brumbies’ last four wins were by 8, 8, 8 and 7-point margins, and that includes their wins over the unfancied Waratahs and Fijian Drua. The Rebels bring a four-game losing streak into this clash, however their last two defeats at the hands of the Reds and Chiefs were by 4 and 3-point margins. I would back the Brumbies in the head-to-head at 1.16 (Unibet). At the time of writing this selection was as low as 1.08 with other bookmakers. Those looking for more risk should consider the Brumbies 1-12 at 3.35 (Unibet).



Crusaders vs. Blues


The Blues would love to lock up the first overall seed ahead of their final round clash against the Chiefs next week. They are 11-1 for the season and they bring a 9-game winning streak into this clash. The Crusaders, meanwhile, are 2-10 for the season. If it weren’t for the Crusaders’ reputation, the odds would look totally different. The Blues beat the Crusaders 26-6 earlier in the season and they would love to complete a historic double over the Cantabrians. I would back the Blues in the head-to-head at 1.40 (Bet Right). The Blues have only gone 2-5 at the line away from home this season and they have only covered the line in 2 of their last 12 visits to Christchurch, so those looking for more risk should consider the Blues 1-12 at 2.90 (Dabble).



Highlanders vs. Fijian Drua

Fijian Drua

The Fijian Drua have gone 0-7 in the head-to-head and 2-5 at the line away from home over the last twelve months, while the Highlanders have gone 2-0 in the head-to-head as the home favourite. The Highlanders won this clash 57-24 last season. I would back the Highlanders in the head-to-head at 1.33 (PlayUp).
