Sunwolves to frustrate Saders

THE MONEY MAN is putting R250 on the Sunwolves to not lose by 39 or more points to the Crusaders in Christchurch on Friday.

I'm on my way to the bush for the Easter holiday, and will post another article on Friday to explain why I think the Stormers will beat the Lions at Newlands on Saturday.

For now, here is some betting advice for the match between the Crusaders and Sunwolves.

The bookies have favoured the Crusaders to win by 38.5 points. The question you have to ask yourself is this: If the Bulls played the Crusaders tomorrow, what would the handicap be? I can assure you it would've been around 20 to 25 points.

Therefore, the 38.5 points the bookies have given the Sunwolves is an attractive betting proposition. I expect the Crusaders to win and win well. But with a R250 wager, which will win me back R225 plus my stake, I'm betting on the Sunwolves to not lose by 39 or more in Christchurch.
