Super Rugby Aotearoa Week 7 betting & odds analysis

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

The Crusaders will enter their Super Rugby Aotearoa Week 7 clash against the Hurricanes as hot favourites at Orangetheory Stadium on Saturday.

But the Crusaders will have to do it without David Havili after he suffered a Bennett’s fracture, the same thumb injury that has sidelined star flanker Cullen Grace, with the pair now both unlikely to return this season.

The Hurricanes will enter the clash full of confidence after knocking off the second-placed Blues 29-27 when a Jordie Barrett sideline conversion gave his team a victory.

More: How to bet on rugby has installed the undefeated Crusaders at $1.24 to defeat the Hurricanes ($4.30), while the $1.90 line has been set at -10.5 points.

On Sunday, the Blues will attempt to get back on the winners’ list when they clash with the Chiefs, who are smarting following their second-half capitulation at the hands of the Highlanders.

After leading 31-7 three minutes into the second half, the Highlanders piled on the pain to score four tries and record a remarkable 31-33 victory.

With no wins from five matches, the Chiefs will enter this Week 7 clash against the Blues as outsiders, with Unibet installing them at $3.20 to notch up a victory.

The Blues are priced at $1.37 at the top NZ betting sites to get their fourth win of the Super Rugby Aotearoa season, an important one given they have now dropped successive matches.

The Highlanders have the bye in round 7 of the Super Rugby Aotearoa season.
