Super Rugby Pacific – Round 15 Betting Tips

Super Rugby Pacific Table

The following are betting tips for selected fixtures in Round 15 of the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific season.

With just one round of the regular season remaining, only the Waratahs are mathematically out of finals contention. The final spot is currently in the Fijian Drua’s hands, but should they fail to beat the Rebels at home this weekend, then the door would open for the Force, Crusaders or Moana Pasifika to steal a finals spot. At the other end of the table, the Blues sit at the top of the standings but they have a tricky fixture against the Chiefs to see off the regular season.

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.



Waratahs vs. Reds


The Reds have gone 1-4 as the away favourite over the last twelve months. They have only covered the line in two of their last nine visits to Sydney. The Waratahs have been poor this season, but they have gone 3-1 at the line as the home underdog. The Reds have the 5th seed locked in so they have nothing to gain by winning this clash. For this reason it wouldn’t be a surprise if they rest key personnel ahead of their playoffs clash the following week. The Waratahs, in contrast, will want to finish the season on a high in front of their home fans. I would back the Waratahs +11.5 at 1.91 (bet365). Those looking for more risk should consider the Reds 1-12 at 2.95 (Unibet).


Fijian Drua

Fijian Drua vs. Rebels


The Fijian Drua have gone 6-1 at home this season and 3-0 as the home favourite. The Rebels have gone 1-5 as the away underdog this season and they bring a five-game losing streak into this clash. The Rebels have lost and failed to cover the line in their previous two away games against Fiji. The Fijian Drua need to win this clash to guarantee a playoff spot, while the Rebels already have a playoff berth secured. I would back the Fijian Drua in the head-to-head at 1.19 (Unibet). This selection is as low as 1.10 with other bookmakers at the time of writing.



Blues vs. Chiefs


Both sides come into this fixture on the back of a defeat, so one of them will have to sustain back-to-back defeats for the first time this season. You could argue the Chiefs will finish as the 4th seed, regardless of the result, while the Blues need to win if they are to secure the coveted first seed for the playoffs. Will the Chiefs be tempted to rest key personnel? The Blues have gone 8-0 in the head-to-head and, impressively, they have also gone 7-1 at the line, over the last twelve months. I would back the Blues in the head-to-head at 1.42 (PlayUp). This selection is as low as 1.30 with other bookmakers at the time of writing.
