Hurricanes v Blues betting tips, predictions and odds update; Super Rugby Rd 6 Preview

Welcome to our Hurricanes v Blues tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of Saturday night’s Rd 6 Super Rugby NZ game from Sky Stadium.

The Blues have been installed $1.70 favourites to defeat the Hurricanes in Super Rugby Aotearoa action, despite dropping their first game of the year last Saturday, a 26-15 loss to the Crusaders.

The Blues are aiming to make it 3-0 against the Hurricanes this year, after winning 30-20 in the opening round of the Super Rugby NZ competition a month ago.

The Blues also eclipsed the Hurricanes 24-15 in March, prior to the COVID-19 restrictions and the rejigged competition coming into force.

Leading rugby bookmaker Betway has installed the Blues at $1.70 to defeat the Hurricanes, who have been priced at $2.20 to win.

The Super Rugby Aotearoa will continue on Sunday when the Chiefs, hunting for their first victory, take on the Highlanders from FMG Stadium.

Hurricanes v Blues tips

Our rugby union expert has scoured the odds for some value and found several value Hurricanes v Blues tips for Saturday’s game.

Dalton Papalii to score a try for the Blues

Dalton Papalii has been sensational for the Blues in 2020, crossing the line three times. With three All Black caps to his name, Papalii has the size and speed to be dangerous, and in a match we see the Blues winning he looms as a pivotal player. While try-scorers betting markets are not yet released for the Blues v Hurricanes clash, check out the odds on game day.

Blues to win by more than 13

The Blues had been one of the form teams of the Super Rugby Aotearoa season until they ran into the red-hot Crusaders, and we think they will bounce back strongly here. The Blues to win by 13+ is paying $4.20 which we think is offering some nice value to punters. Keep an eye on team selection, before placing your Blues v Hurricanes bets on match day.

Blues v Hurricanes prediction

The Blues risk falling two games behind the top-placed Crusaders on the Super Rugby NZ ladder if they drop this game, and we just can’t see it happening. The Blues’ attack is much more dangerous than that of their counterparts, although the Hurricanes have won their past two outings. Keep an eye on the top NZ betting sites for Super Rugby betting promotions. Our final Blues v Hurricanes prediction? Blues 42-17.
