Super Rugby Pacific Round 9 Tips

Friday 19/4/24

5:05pm Fijian Drua vs Hurricanes @ ANZ Stadium

There is a fair amount of respect being shown for the Fijian Drua, who suffered a big loss to the Rebels when they last played.

The 41-20 loss is concerning, especially when facing the Hurricanes this week, who scored a 36-23 win over the Chiefs last week.

That was a tidy effort from one of the best New Zealand teams in Super Rugby and getting them at –9.5 should see them with the advantage.

We’re happy to take the Hurricanes at the line, and their counterattack could be too much for the Fijians to handle.

Betting tip: Hurricanes –9.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm Reds vs Highlanders @ Suncorp Stadium

Consistency hasn’t been there for the Reds, but they deserve to be favourites against the Highlanders on Friday night.

The Reds lost narrowly to the Brumbies 20-17 before losing to Moana Pasifika, which was a terrible loss by their standards. Moana Pasifika is one of the worst teams in the competition, so it wasn’t good enough.

The Highlanders have also struggled with form following a loss to the Rebels. The 47-31 loss highlighted their poor defence, which the Reds could exploit.

Getting the Reds at –6.5 is a fair line from bookmakers, and we’re happy they can win by a converted try.

Betting tip: Reds –6.5 @ $1.90

Saturday 20/4/24

5:05pm Blues vs Brumbies @ Eden Park

The Blues and Brumbies square off in what could be an early look at the Super Rugby finals.

The Blues come off a thrilling 50-3 win over the Force, which was one of the more one-sided games of 2024. It was a demolition, and the Brumbies should be fearful.

However, the Brumbies won 40-16 over the Waratahs in their most recent game, so momentum is with both teams ahead of Saturday’s feature game.

Bookmakers have the Blues at –10.5, which is a sizable line. They are the better team, but it should be a close contest at Eden Park.

We’re happy to include the Brumbies with the points.

Betting tip: Brumbies +10.5 @ $1.90

7:35pm Force vs Crusaders @ HBF Park

The Force are at the bottom of the ladder, which was expected. However, what wasn’t expected was the Crusaders to be one spot ahead of them.

It has been a dismal season for both teams, but the Crusaders still have a much better team, and losing to the Force could send them spiraling out of control.

The current line is –13.5, and we can’t see any other result than the Crusaders putting up a big number on the home side.

Betting tip: Crusaders –13.5 @ $1.90
