Super Rugby Round 7 Betting Tips

Hurricanes vs Crusaders (Friday, Mar 29 5:35pm AEDT)

Round 7 starts in Wellington as the Hurricanes renew their rivalry with the Crusaders. Both sides are 4-1-1 on the season so this shapes as a huge contest not only between rivals but in the NZ Conference. In the earlier meeting of the season, it was all the Crusaders as they led 24-0 at the half and went onto to win 38-22. Interestingly though, this venue hasn't been kind to the Crusaders. Since 2013, they hold an 0-5 SU record. So you have to like the Hurricanes home trend to cover the line in this matchup. Dating back to 2016, the home side is 28-2 SU at home and that record should see them get within 3.5 points or cause an upset.

Waratahs vs Sunwolves (Friday, Mar 29 7:45pm AEDT)

Friday night Super Rugby features the Waratahs up against the Sunwolves in Newcastle. NSW is coming off an impressive 20-12 win over the Crusaders last time out and they'll look to get their offence going this Friday. They rank 13th in the competition for points scored in what has been an inconsistent display. But the positive has been their defence, which is allowing the 2nd fewest points. The Japanese side copped some tough news recently with their likely exclusion from the competition from next season. So it's hard to know how they'll respond on the field. They were close to beating the Waratahs at home in the early rounds (31-30) but NSW scored 77 points on them in the last meeting in Australia. Safe no bet here.

Blues vs Stormers (Saturday, Mar 30 5:35pm AEDT)

Saturday's Super Rugby action starts at Eden Park as the 2-3 Blues meet the 3-2 Stormers. The last 3 meetings have taken place in South Africa so the Blues will enjoy home-field advantage. Led by Rieko Ioane, the Blues ended a 20 game losing streak against NZ sides with a 33-26 home victory over the Highlanders last week. Ioane has scored 6 tries in this 2 game winning streak so he'll be the key player to watch in this matchup. The Stormers started their road trip with a close loss to the Hurricanes 34-28. This is their first visit to Eden Park since 2011 and they do hold a 2-0 record since 2010. This does shape as a fairly low scoring contest as both sides sit at the bottom of Super Rugby for points scored. So there's value for either team to win by under 8.5 points. Games involving the Blues are 4-1 against this bet and 2-0 at home.

Reds vs Rebels (Saturday, Mar 30 7:45pm AEDT)

At Suncorp Stadium, the 2-3 Reds will be battling for position in the Australian Conference against the 3-2 Rebels. QLD was impressive in a 36-14 crushing win over the Brumbies at this venue last week. Meanwhile, the Rebels have returned from an always tough trip to South Africa where they lost to the Lions by 3 and the Sharks by 14. In the last meeting at this venue, the Reds were again impressive as they beat the Rebels 37-23. With Melbourne coming off an Overseas trip and another road game in Australia, this seems like a tough ask. QLD have been good at home thus far and could cause an upset here.

Sharks vs Bulls (Sunday, Mar 31 12:05am AEDT)

The Rugby action continues to Durban as the 3-2 Sharks take on the 3-2 Bulls. Both sides are chasing the 4-2 Lions in the Conference so the stakes will be high. The home side is coming off a 28-14 win over the Rebels at this venue last week. Their second half was impressive as they shutout the away side. On the flip side, the Bulls had a shocker at home as the Chiefs piled on 56 points in a disappointing 36 point loss. The good news for the Bulls is their record against the Sharks. Since 2010, they're 12-4 straight up and they've won the last 3 meetings in Durban. The line is 4-2 in the Bulls favour at this venue and the Sharks are just 3-7 ATS when they playing at home on a back to back.

Jaguares vs Chiefs (Sunday, Mar 31 8:40am AEDT)

In Argentina, the Jaguares will tackle the seemingly resurgent Chiefs. The side from Waikato tore apart the Bulls last week in a 56-20 resounding win. After a winless start to the season, they may have turned the corner after that result. The Jaguares are back from the bye and they'll be looking to rebound from a 35-8 loss in their last game. At home this season, they've been strong with 2 straight wins. However, in the 2 meetings between these sides, the away side is 2-0. If the form guide comes through, the Chiefs should win this matchup. The Jaguares have allowed an average of 41 points in this 2 game losing streak. So look for the Chiefs to play attacking Rugby and dominate the Jaguares lacklustre defence.
