Stormers vs Blues Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Stormers welcome the Blues to fortress Newlands as the hosts seek their fifth straight victory in the 2020 Super Rugby campaign. The Stormers are backed in the handicap market having conceded only seven points in three matches at home thus far.

Stormers Form


The Stormers have won their opening four matches in their 2020 Super Rugby campaign. In their three home matches they have covered the -7 handicap whilst only conceding seven points in those three matches.

The Stormers last match ended in a 17-7 victory over a strong Jaguares outfit in very wet conditions at Newlands. Conditions didn’t allow either team to approach the match in an expansive manner but the Stormers dominated set pieces which I fancy them to do against the Blues.

I expect the Stormers to win and comfortably cover the -7 handicap, with value in 2.35 to win by 13+ points.

Stormers News


The Stormers team news will be available later this week but there have been no serious injuries announced just yet.

Blues Form


The Blues come into this match having won two and lost two of their opening 2020 Super Rugby matches. Strangely their two defeats have both come in Auckland with their two victories taking place in Sydney and Pretoria.

Last week the Blues defeated a very average Bulls side 23-21 at Loftus Versfeld. It stormy weather conditions it was the hosts that dominated, but the Blues pounced on some unforced errors and eventually won the match with the last kick of the match.

The Blues are a relatively young side with plenty of talent. I don’t see them getting too close to an experienced Stormers outfit with a great defensive record.

Blues News


There have been no serious injury concerns for the Blues just yet but more of this will be announced later in the week.

Stormers vs Blues Head to Head


The Stormers have won six of their last eight matches against the Blues. In their last four matches at Newlands the Stormers have won all by more than seven points. 

The last time the Blues won at Newlands was in 2009 although in 2019 the New Zealanders did beat the Stormers 19-9 in Auckland.

Stormers vs Blues Betting Odds


The Stormers are short priced at 1.36 for the win while the Blues can be backed to cause at upset at 3.20. The handicap is set at seven points with the Stormers paying 1.83 and the Blues 2.00 to cover it.

The winning margin market is of interest with a 1-12 point win paying 2.90 for the Stormers at 4.00 for the Blues. A 13+ win for the hosts is valued at 2.35 with the Blues at a whopping 12.00.

Stormers vs Blues Match Up


The Stormers have found a great balance between attack and defence this season having only conceded seven points in three matches at home. They have a pack of forwards among the best in the competition and the addition of Wales international Jamie Roberts at centre the Stormers are real title contenders.

The Blues expansive approach may not work this week as their set piece will be under major pressure from the hosts. The Auckland-based outfit will hope that the weather is dry so that they can try to loosen the game up.
