• Bet (big) on the Boks

    The Springboks should easily see off the ‘threat’ posed by neighbours Namibia as they look to secure their first win of the Rugby World Cup on Saturday.

    Column: Boks have plenty to gain from Namibia clash

    South African fans are excited at the prospect of a crushing win and one is a near certainty if you look at what the bookies have to say.

    Betcoza have priced the Boks up at 0.01-1 to win. For every one rand bet, you win back a single cent. In short, they have given the Namibians no chance and such is the strength of the Springboks that the bookies have decided that a 60 point head-start would deem this a fair contest.

    Betting odds:

    South Africa -59.5 pays 90 cents for every rand bet

    Namibia +59.5 pays 95 cents for every rand bet

    But there is money to be had … only for the brave (and for those that are willing to lose it all) with Namibia tipped at 229-1 to win. It’s not impossible after all, just remember the battle of Brighton in 2015.
