There are 4 DSTV Premiership matches taking place on Tuesday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
Cape Town City v SuperSport United – Click here to bet
Cape Town City currently sit 9th on the table and are coming off a victory in their return to action, 2-1 at home to Royal AM. Cape Town City’s last 3 games have all had exactly 3 goals in them.
SuperSport United are 3rd on the table, 7 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns. They are undefeated in their last 5 games and returned to action with a 1-0 home win over Marumo Gallants.
I have to say that the draw is a big runner here at 22/10, but I am actually going to stick my neck out and go for an over 2.5 goals play as this would have arrived in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads between the sides and as mentioned above Cape Town City’s last 3 games have reached the 3 goal mark.
Suggested Bet – Over 2.5 goals at 12/10
Mamelodi Sundowns v Swallows – Click here to bet
Sundowns appear to be cruising towards another PSL Title and they showed no rust when beating Orlando Pirates 2-0 at home last week. That was their 7th consecutive victory in the League and they have only lost twice in 13 starts this season.
They face a Swallows team that sits down in 14th place and has only won 1 of their last 8 matches. They were beaten 1-0 by Richards Bay in their return to action on New Year’s Eve.
Sundowns look a different class to anything else in the Division at the moment and I can see a repeat of last season’s 3-0 win in this fixture. I am going to back Sundowns to win this game by more than a goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Sundowns -1.5 goals at 14/10

Royal AM v TS Galaxy – Click here to bet
Royal AM are currently 11th on the table and have lost 5 of their last 6 matches. They went down 2-1 away at Cape Town City in their return to action.
TS Galaxy are 8th on the log despite winning only 3 of 13 matches this season. They have though drawn over 50% of their games and they got a valuable 3 point win 2-1 away at Maritzburg United in their first game after the break. That broke a 9 match streak without a victory in the PSL.
Royal Am were comfortable victors 4-2 in this fixture last season and they also won the reverse 4-1 and given there have been 3 goals or more in 4 of their last 5 League matches and in 2 of the last 3 Maritzburg games I am prepared to take the overs here at current odds of 5/4.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 5/4
Sekhukhune v Marumo Gallants – Click here to bet
Sekhukhune are currently second from bottom of the table in 15th spot and without a win in their last 4 games. They drew 0-0 at home to AmaZulu in their return to action.
Marumo Gallants are two positions and 1 point above them in 13th. They lost their match 1-0 away at SuperSport last week and have only won once on the road in 7 attempts this season.
Goals have been scarce in these sides matches with only 3 of the 13 Sekhukhune games reaching the 3 goal mark and only 2 of the 13 Marumo Gallants games doing the same.
This should be a tight affair and even though you can get nearly 2/1 over 2.5 goals I am not tempted and will settle rather on the draw at a similar price.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 19/10
