Canterbury saluted today for R&T. WD lad
Thanks mate, yeah good payout in the end as I'd pretty much been betting on them to win the title each week I made a profit.
So with the ITM cup done, the Super Rugby Squads have just been announced and I reckon it's pretty clear who to bet on this year:
Rules of Super Rugby Betting as it stands:
1) never bet on a SA team unless it's a full strength LIONs team
2) never bet on an OZ team
3) Never bet on the Blues.
So basically that boils down to 4 teams worth having a look at:
Highlanders - new coach, a very good guy, chatted with him a bit a couple weeks back and was very impressed. They've brought in several new players, BUT, while I think they will make the playoffs and be good to bet on during the year, I don't think they can win it.
Chiefs - in short, they have lost way too many key players: TKB and Cruden he main ones, but also Lowe, Leith and a couple others. I don't think they have filled those holes well enough, so I put them in a similar boat to the Highlanders in that they may be good to bet on, on a game-by-game basis, but they won't win the title and may not even make the playoffs this year.
Hurricanes - Basically the same core group of players as last year but with improvement. I think they are a very good shot at winning the title this year - waiting for the odds to come out but I'll likely be on them to win.
Crusaders - AS with the Canes, same core group + improvements. They will be the favourites I suspect but worth every Penny.
If I can back the Canes and Crusaders to win and effectively get odds of $2 if either win I'll be a happy man. I think the key is to take both though to cover for injuries, and be sensible about the timing with which you add to those bets as the season progresses. These teams will likely lose a few games during the season as they have tough draws playing NZ team regularly and inevitably rest and rotate which may result in unexpected losses. Back them heavily when these losses eventuate as that is when you will find value but trust that at the business end of the season these two teams will get the job done!
