The Crusaders are hot favourites to beat the Chiefs in their Super Rugby Aotearoa clash at the Orangetheory Stadium on Sunday. I'm looking at the handicap market in this one while Crusaders winger Sevu Reece could offer value in the try-scoring markets.


Crusaders Form


The Crusaders have been in incredible form this season with just one defeat in their six 2020 Super Rugby matches. They beat the Reds 24-20 in Christchurch before smashing the Sunwolves 49-14 in Japan.

The Saders enjoyed a bye in the first week of Super Rugby Aotearoa and then beat the Hurricanes comprehensively 39-25 in Wellington last week.

Winger Sevu Reece got his season off to a flying start last weekend for the Crusaders and is worth a look in the try-scoring markets.

Crusaders News


The Crusaders were pure class last weekend but we could see the likes of Luke Romano getting a start this weekend.

Chiefs Form


The Chiefs had a decent start to the 2020 Super Rugby, including a home 25-15 victory over the Crusaders in week two. Prior to the break they beat a hapless Waratahs side 51-14 in Sydney but then returned home and lost 27-24 against the Hurricanes.

On the resumption of the season in the form of Super Rugby Aotearoa the Chiefs heartbreakingly lost 28-27 to the Highlanders in Dunedin. Last week the Blues made them rue missed chances in Auckland as the Chiefs slumped to a 24-12 defeat.

Chiefs News


Despite defeat the Chiefs are likely to stick with the same line-up. Aaron Cruden impressed upon his return at fly-half and should be retained.

Crusaders vs Chiefs Head to Head


The Crusaders and Chiefs share five victories each over their last 10 matches. The last time they met in February the Chiefs ran out 25-15 winners in Hamilton.

Crusaders vs Chiefs Odds


The Crusaders are comfortable favourites at 1.25 while the Chiefs can be backed as outsiders at 4.00. A draw is priced at 26.00.

Crusaders vs Chiefs Match Up


This massive New Zealand derby has produced some classics over the years and this should be no different. There has been more than 10 points between the two sides in eight of their last 11 clashes.
