Chiefs v Crusaders betting tips & prediction; Super Rugby NZ, Rd 8 preview

Welcome to our Blues v Chiefs betting tips and winner prediction, for their Super Rugby Aotearoa clash being played on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues are sitting second on the ladder and will enter this game as an overwhelming favourite, with their opponent on a five game losing streak.

Leon McDonald’s troops showed they were well and truly in the chasing pack, rather than the team most likely to upset the Crusaders seemingly infallible apple cart, when they lost a thriller 27-29 to the Hurricanes last weekend, after leading most of the day.

The Chiefs squandered a golden opportunity against the Highlanders last week, after leading 31-7 with 34 minutes left on the clock. The Highlanders were unstoppable from that point on, eventually winning 33-31.

Most rugby betting sites have installed the Blues around the $1.40 mark to win this encounter, while the Chiefs are paying $3.10 to win their first game of the Super Rugby NZ season.

It’s worth noting for our International readers, that crowds are now allowed back into sports events in New Zealand, with the country believing they have eliminated COVID-19.

Our rugby tipster has examined the Blues v Chiefs betting and has found some value tips. Here is his best bets:

Take the Chiefs +7.5

The Chiefs might be bottom of the Super Rugby Aotearoa ladder, but they have not been disgraced, losing four of their five losses by less than eight points. Meanwhile the Blues have lost their last two games, giving away over 26 points in both losses. We think the Chiefs can make us some money with the start in this one.

Mark Telea anytime try scorer

The Blues young star Mark Telea is sitting in the top few try-scorers in Super Rugby NZ 2020, and after recently signing a new contract, we think he will be ready to celebrate. Telea might be inexperienced but he is comfortably among the players with the most metres gained and second for defenders beaten. He is paying $2.20 to score a try with

Blues v Chiefs prediction 26/7/2020

The Blues deserve to be favourite in this one, and alarm bells will begin to ring if they drop a third successive game. They look to have a more balanced pack and greater scoring weapons, with Telea and Dalton Papali’i in explosive form. We think it’s likely to be close, but the Auckland team to be too strong. Our final Blues v Chiefs prediction? Blues 28-26.
