Mamelodi Sundowns have won their last 10 League matches and they currently sit top of the table 11 points ahead of their closest challenger, Richards Bay. Their last game was a 2-1 home win over Chippa United and the Chippa United goal was the first conceded by Mamelodi Sundowns in 6 matches.

Mamelodi Sundowns 8/15
SuperSport United 11/2
This is a Derby game that tends to bring out the best in both sides, but on current form it really is hard to look past a Sundowns victory. SuperSport are capable of giving them a hard time and I am going to bet that Sundowns win this game by exactly 1 goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Sundowns -1 the draw at 5/2
