There is just the one DSTV Premiership match taking place on Friday night and it is a big Soweto Derby between Swallows and Pirates. We take a look at the game from a betting angle.
A reminder that you can now bet on the League winner without Mamelodi Sundowns and here we have SuperSport United trading as 15/10 favourites with Chiefs 4/1, Pirates 9/2, 8/1 Richards Bay and you can get 16/1 and better the balance.
Swallows are currently 14th on the log hovering just above the relegation zone. They have won 2 of their ls 3 games including a 2-1 away win over Chippa United last time out. Their last home game was a 1-0 victory over Richards Bay and overall at home this season they have won 5, drawn 2 and lost 3 of their 10 matches and they are undefeated in their last 5 home games.
Looking at Swallows goal stats when playing at home, 50% of their matches have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers although that stat is misleading as the last 5 matches have all finished with 2 goals or less in them.
Orland Pirates are 3rd on the log, but on a wobbly run of form that has seen them lose 2 of their last 3. They went down 1-0 in the big Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs last week and perhaps the most surprising stat by PSL standards is it has been 10 matches since their last draw. Pirates have won 3, drawn 2 and lost 5 of their 10 away games and they have lost 3 of their last 4 on the road.
Looking at Pirates goal stats on their travels their matches have only averaged 1.6 goals each with just 1 of the 10 games reaching the 3 goal mark.
Pirates beat Swallows 1-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season and last season and the season before this fixture finished 1-1.
