There are 5 DSTV Premiership matches taking place on Tuesday and we suggest a bet in each of them.
Let’s start with a look at the latest Outright Betting where Mamelodi Sundowns are firm favourites to defend their title at 2/9, you can get 10/1 Orlando Pirates, 20/1 Chiefs and Royal AM and 25/1 and better the balance. Click here for Outright Betting
Sekhukhune v Orlando Pirates – Click here to bet
Sekhukhune are second from bottom of the table with just 1 win in their opening 8 games. They face Orlando Pirates who are 2nd on the log, 5 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, but with a game in hand.
Both of these sides have played in low scoring fixtures with all 8 of Pirates matches failing to reach the 3 goal mark while 2 of the 8 Sekhukhune matches would have delivered you a profit had you backed over 2.5 goals. That being said surely we can get goals in Pirates games sometimes and I can’t resist the 2/1 for over 2.5 goals.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 2/1
Golden Arrows v Cape Town City – Click here to bet
Golden Arrows are 5th on the log with 3 wins in their opening 8 games. They face Cape Town City, 2 points behind them, but all the way down in 12th with 2 wins from their opening 8 matches. Arrows have only lost 1 of their last 6 games and Cape Town City are undefeated in their last 5.
These sides have played some high scoring fixtures, but generally in Cape Town and I am going to go with a repeat of last season’s 1-0 win to Cape Town City when visiting Golden Arrows.
Suggested Bet: Correct Score 0-1 at 5/1
Stellenbosch v Maritzburg United – Click here to bet
Stellenbosch are currently 11th on the log on 10 points, 1 point and 2 positions above Maritzburg United.
Stellenbosch’s games have been amongst the highest scoring of the Division with a 50% over/under 2.5 goals split and both teams have found the back of the net in 6 of their last 7 matches. Maritzburg games have been lower scoring, but I am quite happy to take both teams to score, yes, at the price of 27/20.
Suggested Bet: Both Teams to Score, Yes, at 27/20
SuperSport United v Royal AM – Click here to bet
SuperSport United are 7th on the log and they saw a 3 match winning run ended last time out when they lost 2-1 away to Kaizer Chiefs. Royal AM currently sit 4th, but they also lost their last match, 1-0 at home to Richards Bay. Both these sides have a 50% strike rate had you backed over 2.5 goals this season so I am happy to take almost 1.5/1 that we get 3 goals or more in the game.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 29/20
TS Galaxy v Marumo Gallants – Click here to bet
TS Galaxy are currently 10th on the table with just 2 wins in their opening 8 starts and they face bottom of the table, Marumo Gallants who are still searching for their first victory, but have had 6 draws in their opening 8 games.
Galaxy are without a win in their last 5 taking just 3 points from the 15 they have played for so both sides carry little to no form into this fixture. They are also amongst the lowest scoring sides in the Division with only 1 of 8 Marumo Gallants matches reaching the 3 goal mark and Galaxy would have seen punters collect profits in all 8 matches had they backed under 2.5 goals.
It is hard to argue with the bookmakers who make the draw short at 17/10 and I am also going to agree with them that the goalless draw is the most likely outcome in this match.
Suggested Bet: Correct Score 0-0 at 16/5
