2017 Super Rugby Grand Final Betting Tips

August 3, 2017 by Posted in Betting Tips

The Super Rugby season reaches its pinnacle early Sunday morning with the Lions hosting the Crusaders in the 2017 Super Rugby Grand Final. We preview the big match and give our betting tips below.

Lions vs Crusaders (Sunday 12am AEST)
The Lions will be hoping for redemption when they head into this match after they were the losing side in the 2016 Super Rugby grand final. The side obviously learned from its mistakes as they were able to defeat the Hurricanes last week, the side that beat them in the 2016 decider. However, they did it the hard was as they trailed early 22-3 before putting together a remarkable comeback. The Lions flexed their muscles and went on to win 44-29. We are predicting them to be out to start this match stronger and put together a convincing opening 20-minutes in front of their home fans against the Crusaders.

The Lions have the best attack in the competition while the Crusaders have arguably one of the best defences. The Crusaders held the Highlanders scoreless in the opening week of the finals, albeit the teams played in torrential conditions. They have been strong with their discipline throughout the year and they won’t be giving the Lions many easy points. However, the Lions haven’t been one to sit and wait for things to happen and they aren’t afraid to chance their arm. It will be a great battle between the two teams’ forward packs and the winner from the set pieces will go a long way to securing the victory. The Lions have an edge in the back line and with that and the advantage of playing in front of their home fans, we are predicting them to be crowned the Super Rugby champions of 2017.

TIP: Lions at the margin (1-12) – $3.30 at Sportsbet
