There are 4 DSTV Premiership matches taking place on Saturday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
MARUMO GALLANTS v RICHARDS BAY – Click here to bet
Marumo Gallants sit second from bottom of the table and they are without a win in their last 4 games. They did break a 3 match losing streak when they drew 1-1 at Stellenbosch last time out.
Richards Bay are currently 3rd on the log, but they are coming off a 2-0 home defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns, their only defeat in their last 10 matches.
Goals have been few and far between in both of these teams games this season with Marumo Gallants matches averaging 1.6 goals each and Richards Bay just 1.3 goals each.
These sides played to a goalless draw at Richards Bay earlier this season.
Both of these sides play very defensively and I think another goalless draw could be on the cards.
Suggested Bet: Correct Score 0-0 at 7/2

ORLANDO PIRATES v GOLDEN ARROWS – Click here to bet
Orlando Pirates are 8th on the log and they have now lost 3 matches in succession, most recently going down 2-1 away at Cape Town City.
Golden Arrows are 6th on the log with 2 wins in their last 3 games. They beat SuperSport United 2-1 at home last time out. Their last away game was a 2-0 loss against Kaizer Chiefs. 5 of the 15 Golden Arrows matches have reached the 3 goal mark this season and incredibly had you been backing over 2.5 goals in Pirates games you would have only collected a profit in 1 match, that would have been in their last game though.
These sides met earlier in the season with Pirates winning 2-0 at Golden Arrows and both fixtures finished goalless last season.
I don’t think there is much between these sides as the betting suggests and I certainly wouldn’t be backing Pirates at the current price of 5/6, the draw strikes me as the value play here.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 5/2
CHIPPA UNITED v CAPE TOWN CITY – Click here to bet
Chippa United are currently 9th on the log without a win in their last 5 games. Since returning to action after the World Cup break they have only taken 1 point from a possible 9 while all 3 of those games have been on the road.
Cape Town City are currently 7th on the log after a 2-1 home win over Orlando Pirates last time out, but they have battled on the road this season with just win in 6 attempts.
50% of Chippa United matches have seen over 2.5 goal backers collect profits and 6 of the 15 Cape Town City games have reached the 3 goal mark including 4 of their last 5.
Cape Town City won the reverse fixture 2-1 earlier this season and the last two meetings between the sides at Chippa United have finished goalless.
Although the head-to-head record doesn’t scream goals, Cape Town City are a side that does historically string goals off high scoring matches together and I am going for 3 goals or more in the match.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 27/20
STELLENBOSCH v SEKHUKHUNE – Click here to bet
Stellenbosch are currently 13th on the log and are without a win in their last 7 matches. They have drawn all 3 games since returning to action after the World Cup and have now drawn 50% of their fixtures this season.
Sekhukhune are 11th on the log and they are undefeated in their last 4 and have won their 2 games, most recently a 1-0 defeat of Kaizer Chiefs on the road and prior to that they beat Marumo Gallants 3-2 at home.
Stellenbosch’s last 6 games have had 2 goals or less in them and under 2.5 goal backers would have collected profits in 4 of the last 5 Sekhukhune matches.
These teams have met 3 times in the PSL and all 3 games have finished 1-1. I am going to bet that we get a 4th consecutive 1-1 draw between these sides.
Suggested Bet: Correct Score 1-1 at 9/2
