Tried our top rated bookmakers?
5:35pm Crusaders vs Reds @ Orangetheory Stadium
The Crusaders continue their march towards playoff rugby when beating the Drua by 58 points last week.
It sent a message to the other playoff teams, including the Reds, who battled past Moana Pasifika 34-22, but that’s not a great betting guide.
Moana was beaten by the Force on Tuesday night, so the Crusaders have the edge in this matchup and that’s why bookmakers have a 19.5-point spread.
Take the Crusaders to send another strong message.
Betting tip: Crusaders –19.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

1:00pm Fijian Drua vs Chiefs @ Churchill Park
There isn’t much going the way of the Fijian Drua and this should be another easy win for the Chiefs.
The Waikato-based franchise were too good for the Force when scoring 54-21 last week and they’ll be thinking of posting another one-sided score line.
We think bookmakers are being generous with the –15.5 line for the Chiefs, so take them to score an emphatic victory.
Betting tip: Chiefs –15.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

5:05pm Moana Pasifika vs Brumbies @ Mt Smart Stadium
Punters are faced with another big line as the Brumbies take on the lowly Pasifika on Saturday.
The Brumbies almost nabbed the Blues last week in a 21-19 defeat, but they should take plenty of heart away from the performance.
It would take a brave punter to back the Pasifika given their poor record in 2022, and given the Brumbies are preparing for the playoffs, they’ll want to end the regular season with a bang.
Betting tip: Brumbies –19.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
Brumbies by 28
7:45pm Waratahs vs Blues @ Leichhardt Oval
The Waratahs were too good for a 14-man Highlanders team last week, but we don’t think it was that great of a performance.
They now face the Blues, who don’t need to put out their strongest team and they probably won’t, but the $1.60 is too good to pass up.
The Blues are a deep team and it gives the bench a good chance to get some air in their lungs, so we expect the table toppers to come out with passion.
Betting tip: Blues –2.5 @ $1.91 Bet @ PlayUp
Blues by 7
10:00pm Force vs Hurricanes @ NIB Stadium
Despite the Force coming off a big win over Moana Pasifika, it’s not hard to look good against them.
The Hurricanes are a dangerous team on their day and they showed that when beating the Rebels 45-22 last week, so we’re expecting a similar effort.
Bookmakers have the current line at 14.5, and although it’s another big line for the favourites to cover, we can’t see the Force getting close.
The Kiwi teams should have the weigh on this week.
Betting tip: Hurricanes –14.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp

2:00pm Rebels vs Highlanders @ Melbourne Stadium
The Highlanders did it tough last week with one man down, but they should find it easier against the Rebels.
Most of the early money has come for the Rebels with the +7.5 head start, but we think the Highlanders will cap off the regular season with a win.
We’re happy with –7.5 line and the $1.94 available.
Betting tip: Highlanders –7.5 @ $1.90 Bet @ PlayUp
