Now this is the type of betting weekend that I enjoy! Two massive games in the Currie Cup this weekend and there is some value around if you are really brave. Do you have what it takes to make a bit of money this weekend?

The two Currie Cup semi finals can go either way, with the betting for the Sharks/Bulls game very even. But in the WP/Cheetahs game is where the value is with the Cheetahs practically written off. I’m personally going for the Cheetahs to upset an over confident WP team, and the Sharks to pull through.

Bet the farm:

Sharks to beat the Bulls – 1/1

Take a chance:

Cheetahs to beat WP – 5/2

Currie Cup Overall Winner:

This is the weekend to be brave and select your winner of the Currie Cup. As you can see with the odds below, it’s a much better return than trying to get any value in two weeks time with a final (which will be even money and not much better).

WP – 18/10
Bulls – 22/10
Sharks – 22/10
Cheetahs – 10/1

When the Sharks are done with the Bulls and the final is here in Durban and the rest of the nation has realized that the Sharks are a serious team, you will net get more than 8/10. You can now win more than triple your money, just by being brave.

Soccer bets:

Chelsea to beat Aston Villa – 7.5/10

Everton to wipe their asses with Liverpool – 15/10

Cricket betting:

Cricket season has kicked off in South Africa with the Proteas currently taking on Zimbabwe. As this is a one sided series, the betting involved in useless and you will get no money back. So until the Proteas face decent contenders, which will be next month, we will look forward to the betting on the Ashes series between Australia and England:

Australia – 7/10
England – 22/10
Draw – 5/1

The series will be played in Australia and thus the reason Australia are so short in the betting.

For obvious reasons we will not be doing any betting coverage of the Pakistan games as this is fuelling a very staunch fire.

Formula One:

The race to the end of the season is very close with 5 drivers still in the running to win the championship. Here is a look at the betting with three races still to go:

Mark Webber – 15/10
Sebastian Vettel – 22/10
Fernando Alonso – 28/10
Lewis Hamilton – 25/1
Jenson Button – 50/1

Rugby World Cup:

Here are the odds for the various teams as it stands presently (I will leave this information on and update it as it changes during the end of year tour):

New Zealand – 1/1
Australia – 4/1
South Africa – 4/1
France – 13/1
England – 14/1
Ireland – 40/1
Wales – 40/1
Argentina – 66/1

Cricket World Cup:

Australia – 4/1
India – 4/1
South Africa – 5/1
Sri Lanka – 6/1
England – 6/1
Pakistan – 7/1 (That depends on who you talk to)
New Zealand – 17/1
West Indies – 18/1

    I’ve just heard that Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by 5 wickets in Lahore next Thursday.

  • Province the bookies’ favourite for the title? Or is that simply cos they are rated most likely to be in the final, at least, hence the shorter odds?

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) :

    They are, in the bookies eyes, most favoured to already have booked a place in the final. And as a result of the mighty Bulls being touted to win here, that final will then be in Cape Town.

  • I have more than enough stress this weekend. Bringing money into the equation as well might just push me over the edge!
