If you've had a long and hard week, perhaps it's time to treat yourself to some
sports betting and viewing action this weekend, with a number of sports and
events for you to choose from, a selection of which we have highlighted below in
our Weekend Sports Preview for 14 September 2012.
The Championship Rugby - All Blacks vs Springboks
If you're a rugby union fan, then get set for the highly anticipated The
Championship rugby clash between the All Blacks and the Springboks at Dunedin in
New Zealand (kick off at 8:35 GMT) tomorrow (Saturday, September 15).
Given the decades of history between these two Southern Hemisphere rugby
powerhouses, fans will be tuned in from all over the world to watch the game
live. And even though many feel that the men in green and gold have failed to
play up to expectation so far in the tournament (formerly known as the Tri
Nations), the last time they faced the men in black at this venue, they chalked
up a close 30-28 win.
But that was then, and the big rugby union betting question is whether the Boks
can get it together against arguably their fiercest rivals? According to the
oddsmakers at William Hill Online, the short answer is no, considering they've
posted the home team as the overwhelming 1/10 favorites versus the visitors at
11/2, and a draw at 25/1 odds.
It won't be lost on The Championship betting fans that New Zealand have won
their last six test matches, while South Africa could only manage a draw against
new addition to the Southern Hemisphere tournament, Argentina last week, and
before that could not prevent a defeat at the hands of Australia. We predict the
Boks will be slaughtered by the All Blacks tomorrow.
All Blacks vs Springboks Odds
New Zealand 1/10
South Africa 11/2
In other The Championship news, also on Saturday Australia will host Argentina
at Skilled Park in the Gold Coast town of Robina (kick off at 11:05 GMT), where
they are expected to trounce their South American opponents. That said, the
Puma's have surprised many fans with their consistent level of play so far in
You may recall how they managed to fend off the All Blacks for much longer than
expected two weeks ago before eventually succumbing, and even more impressively
how last week they managed to hold the Springboks to a draw. Of course, the big
betting question is whether they'll be able to make any inroads against the
formidable Wallabies tomorrow?
From a betting standpoint, the answer is more than likely not, which is why
tomorrow Argentina will start as the betting underdogs at William Hill. We
predict that the Wallabies will 'toss the Pumas on the barbie,' so to speak, and
eat them whole!
Australia vs Argentina Odds
Bayern Munich vs Mainz in Bundesliga in Bundesliga
If you're a fan of German premier league football, then you can't afford to miss
Saturday's big Bundesliga matchup between hosts Bayern Munich and Mainz at
Allianz Arena in Munich (kick off at 14:30 GMT). After losing the 2012
Bundesliga title last season to their fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund, Bayern
Munich are on a big mission to win the title this season.
And although they
are just two games into the new season, they are already heading up the
Bundesliga standings (along with Eintracht Frankfurt) with the maximum 6 points.
When you consider Bayern has won each of their last four matches, it's not
surprising that they'll start tomorrow as the overwhelming betting favourites at
William Hill. We predict that the Bavarians will prove triumphant by no less
than 3-1 tomorrow.
Bayern Munich vs Mainz Odds
Bayern Munich 2/11
