Crusaders favourite in Super Rugby Aotearoa 2020 betting
The Crusaders have been installed favourite by the top rugby betting sites to win the Super Rugby Aotearoa 2020.
The Super Rugby Aotearoa has been announced by New Zealand Rugby as a replacement for the Super Rugby competition, that was scrapped because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The move is expected to be mirrored by other rugby playing nations, including Australia, where an announcement is impending, but New Zealand is almost certain to host the first professional match post-restrictions, with the tournament expected to begin on June 13.
But so far SR Aotearoa 2020 is the only domestic competition that has had odds released for it, and the bookies are expecting the Crusaders to continue on from last season’s winning run.
The NZ Super League will see the five local clubs playing one home and one away fixture against each team, over 10 weeks.
Two matches are expected to be played every weekend, with one each on Saturday evening and the other on Sunday afternoon New Zealand Standard Time.
Leading International bookmaker Betway has installed the Crusaders a $2.70 favourite, while the Chiefs are priced at $3.25.
The next line of betting is the Blues at $6, Hurricanes at $6.50 and the Highlanders at $10.
Crusaders star Sevu Reece is the favourite to top the try-scorers at $5, while Rieko Ioane, George Bridge, Mark Telea and Ben Lam have also seen some money in this market.
When making the announcement of the Super Rugby Aotearoa, officials said the new starting date would give players about a month of contact training, which has been cleared under New Zealand’s updated COVID-19 restrictions.
