The Bokke began their highly anticipated “new era” under Heyneke Meyer and Jean de Villiers with a 22-17 win over the English at Kings Park last week. The scoreline was sweetened for the English by a last minute try but the truth is that the Springboks played an excellent 2nd half and never really looked like losing. A disastrous start was avoided and Messrs Meyer and de Villiers evaded the wrath of the ever fickle South African public and media.
With only one enforced change in the Springbok team and five changes (two positional) to the England team Springbok supporters are expecting an even bigger triumph at Ellis Park this weekend. The bookie is also taking this view with a handicap of -11 for the Springboks this week, compared to -7 last week. This essentially means that the Springboks need to win by 12 points or more for your South Africa -11 handicap bet to come in at odds of 10/11. If you think the scoreline will be closer than that but the Bokke will still win you should take England +11.
SportingbetSA is paying a 10% bonus on winnings for all match bets placed on the Springboks to win. The bookie has heavily favoured them this week and will be paying out 2/9 on the Bokke win.
