There are 3 DSTV Premiership matches taking place on Saturday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
First up a reminder that World Sports Betting have priced up on the Title race without Mamelodi Sundowns and it is certainly very competitive with SuperSport United at 28/10 ahead of a trio of teams at 7/2 namely Richards Bay, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs. You can get 20/1 and better the balance.
Royal Am v SuperSport United – Click here to bet
Royal Am are currently 9th on the log and they picked up a valuable 3 points last time out beating Golden Arrows 2-1 on the road. Prior to that they have only taken 1 point out of a possible 9. Royal Am’s home games have been relatively low scoring averaging just 1.9 goals each with only 30% of the matches providing profits for over 2.5 goal backers.
SuperSport United are 2nd on the table and they broke a 4 match run without a victory when they beat Cape Town City 2-0 at home last time out. They have won 4 and drawn 1 of 10 away matches this season, but they haven’t won on the road in their last 3 attempts. Looking at SuperSport’s goal stats on the road, 40% of their games have reached the 3 goal mark and their away games also averaged just 1.9 goals each.
Although goals haven’t exactly flowed in either of these teams matches this season the head-to-head gives some hope and over 2.5 goals has arrived in 4 of the last 5 meetings.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 33/20

Sekhukhune v Richards Bay – Click here to bet
Sekhukhune are currently 7th on the log and they saw a 6 match unbeaten streak ended when they lost 2-0 to Sundowns in their penultimate start and unfortunately went down 2-0 away to Marumo Gallants last time out. They have taken 11 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 home games and 2 of their 8 home matches this season have reached the 3 goal mark.
Richards Bay are the surprise package of the season and they are 3rd on the table although have dropped 7 points in their last 3 games. Last time out they lost 1-0 away to Swallows, only their second away loss of the season in 10 games. Richards Bay away games have seen only 20% of their matches deliver profits for over 2.5 goal punters.
With neither of these sides looking in the greatest of forms I have to say that the draw is a big runner.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 2/1
AmaZulu v TS Galaxy – Click here to bet
AmaZulu are 6th on the table and unbeaten in their last 4 although they are coming off 3 successive 1-1 draws. They have won 1 and drawn 2 of their 9 home matches this season and looking at goals in AmaZulu home games we find that 4 of the 9 games have had 3 goals or more in them although 4 of their last 5 have failed to reach the 3 goal mark.
TS Galaxy are 10th on the table and coming off a goalless draw at home to Chiefs and have only lost 2 matches in their last 10. They have also only lost 2 matches on the road this season although they have had 6 draws to go alongside the 2 wins in 10 matches. TS Galaxy away games have averaged just 1.1 goals each, only 2 of the 10 matches going over 2.5 goals.
These sides last two meetings have finished goalless and I think we are heading for another one here.
Suggested Bet: Correct score, 0-0 at 4/1
