Super Rugby Pacific Round 11 Predictions
7:45pm Reds vs Chiefs @ Suncorp Stadium
We thought the Chiefs would be shorter in betting markets than $1.44, but we’re happy to take the value available.
The Chiefs come off an impressive 51-27 win over the Waratahs and the Reds suffered a 30-17 loss to the Hurricanes, so the form is with the Kiwi side.
The current points spread line is 5.5 and we also think that’s generous for the Chiefs. Most of the early money has come for the Reds with the points, but take the Chiefs to open the New Zealanders account in Round 11.
Betting tip: Chiefs –5.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

10:00pm Force vs Blues @ NIB Stadium
The Force didn’t get the chance to play last weekend and now they have to play the best team in the competition.
The Blues didn’t look overly fantastic against the Fijian Drua, but the 35-18 victory is another notch on the impressive Blues’ record.
They currently lead Super Rugby and we don’t see that changing on Friday night. Bookmakers agree with the odds at $1.02, but they need to cover a 21.5-point spread.
We expect the Blues to cover the spread and send the Force into oblivion.
Betting tip: Blues –21.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

2:35pm Fijian Drua vs Highlanders @ ANZ Stadium
The struggles for the Highlanders continued last week as they were the only Kiwi team not to win.
It has been a dismal season for the southern men, but punters have every right to expect them to beat the Drua.
The Fijian side is currently $5.50 to win the game outright, which is unlikely to happen, but the margin of 11.5 points makes it interesting. However, the Highlanders should discover their best and score a comfortable victory.
Betting tip: Highlanders –11.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

5:05pm Waratahs vs Crusaders @ Leichhardt Oval
It’s a long road back from the Waratahs, who were drubbed by the Chiefs last week.
They are no longer the best team in Australian rugby and that could become clearer when they face the Crusaders on Saturday.
The Crusaders are another team looking to produce their best as the playoffs loom and they could stretch their legs in this one-sided contest.
The current line is 22.5 points and that spread could be covered by half time.
Betting tip: Crusaders –22.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

7:45pm Rebels vs Moana Pasifika @ Melbourne Stadium
Moana Pasifika didn’t play last week, which is probably a better result than what the Rebels suffered at the hands of the Crusaders.
The Crusaders handed the Rebels a 42-17 thumping and those losses are tough to come back from. However, Moana is a much easier team to play.
There isn’t much going for either team, but with an extra week of rest under their belt, the visitors could provide punters with value at $3.35.
Betting tip: Moana Pasifika @ $3.35 Bet @ PlayUp

2:00pm Brumbies vs Hurricanes @ GIO Stadium
The Brumbies are the best Australian team in Super Rugby, but we don’t fancy their chances against the Hurricanes.
They looked strong when beating the Highlanders last week, but the Hurricanes defeated the Reds 30-17 and that was a much better effort.
Punters get $1.61 for the Hurricanes, but take the –2.5 at a slightly better price.
Betting tip: Hurricanes –2.5 @ $1.84 Bet @ PlayUp
